Broncos, Jets finalize Tebow trade

UPDATE: After a day of back and forth, it appears that the Jets have acquired Tim Tebow from the Broncos for a fourth and sixth round draft choice. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Broncos will also send a seventh round selection to the Jets. Tebow became available when the Broncos signed Peyton Manning to a five-year deal Tuesday.

Two weeks ago, the Jets signed Mark Sanchez to a three-year extension, leading to speculation Tebow will be used in a specialist's role, likely running the wildcat offense.

The move apparently doesn't sit well with Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who on Tuesday tweeted: We don't need Tebow. We sell out every home game let him go to Jacksonville Tampa or Miami. Our wildcat offense can b ran by J. Kerley or Joe McKnight we straight.

Tebow played in 14 games in 2011, completing 46.5 percent of his passes for 1,729 yards and 17 touchdowns. He had a passer rating of 72.9. He also rushed 122 times for...

Source: Bard's role still undetermined

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- According to a team source, Daniel Bard will make his next scheduled start (Sun.), and his role to start the season -- as either a starter or reliever -- has yet to be determined.

The information confirms Red Sox' manager Bobby Valentine's assertion following Bard's five-inning outing (3 runs, 3 hits, 3 walks, 2 strikeouts, 83 pitches) that the righty would be making what would be his sixth appearance of the spring. Thus far this spring (including his first appearance, in a 'B' game against Minnesota), Bard has allowed 11 runs over 13 2/3 innings, with seven of the runs coming in a March 15 outing against St. Louis.

Earlier Wednesday, a CSNNE.com report said one Red Sox staff member has told others outside the organization that, "when all is said and done," Bard would be back in the bullpen and...

Melancon: Valentine 'taken out of context'

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Mark Melancon told WEEI.com Wednesday that he wasn't upset with recent post-game comments made by Bobby Valentine, and clarified why the manager may have made them.

Following the reliever's one-inning, three-run stint Monday, Valentine said when asked about Melancon's performance, "Melancon, I thought he backed up the bases pretty well. He had that down." The manager then went on to critique specific examples of what might led to the pitcher's rough outing.

"As I came off the field I said, 'Hey Skip, I got my running in today. I backed up every base about three times.' He got that from me. I didn't take any offense to that," Melancon said. "To be quite honest, I'm harder on myself than anybody else here. 

"Even if something was ever said poorly about me, I'm not really worried about that. I'm worried about what I do on the field. Hopefully all they can say is good things. But that...

Lester feels good despite rough outing

BRADENTON, Fla. -- Red Sox starter Jon Lester, who had been scheduled to pitch at least five innings on Wednesday, instead lasted just three innings while requiring 80 pitches in an eventual 6-5 Sox loss to the Pirates. Lester allowed four runs (all in his third and final inning) on eight hits while walking two and striking out one.

Despite the fact it was a spring training contest, Lester said that he was disappointed by his poor results.

"I’m a competitor. I want to win. I don’t care if it’s on the back field in Minnesota or in Fenway or wherever. I always want to do well and get the results that I feel I’ve been working for," said Lester. "This is not something I take lightly, even if it’s in spring training."

That said, Lester also said he felt good about his mechanics. While he did end up leaving some fastballs up, he felt that his ability to repeat his delivery was solid, thus...

Boeheim on NCAAs: 'This is not fun'

Just over 24 hours before taking on Wisconsin in the East Regionals at TD Garden, Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim made a distinction Wednesday on what it's like coaching one of the greatest programs in college basketball history.

Last week, when his team barely survived North Carolina-Asheville in the first round and beat Kansas State to advance to Boston, Boeheim made the analogy that if a doctor was performing surgery, he wouldn't want him to be having fun.

"I don't want to make fun of‑‑ make light of what a doctor does," Boeheim said before his team's 50-minute practice at the Garden. "But what we do to us is very serious, and we need to‑‑ we can make jokes and comments and stuff, but it's very serious. It's what we do, and we want to do it right, be able to get it right. I've never associated‑‑ a better comment would be if I want to have fun, I'll go to play golf. This is not fun. If I wasn't getting paid, I wouldn't be doing this...
