Report: Bruins made push for Parise
By: DJ Bean

According to a report from the Boston Globe's Fluto Shinzawa, the Bruins made a push to sign Zach Parise, this summer's top free agent forward, before he took a 13-year, $98 million deal with the Wild on Wednesday. Shinzawa writes that Boston extended a "significant offer" to the former Devils captain. 

Parise, 27, has scored 30 or more goals in each of his last five healthy seasons (he played in only 13 games in 2010-11) and had 31 goals and 38 assists for 69 points last season with the Devils. 

The development of the Bruins making a play for Parise is rather surprising given the team's salary cap situation. With $69,922,143 dollars in payroll currently committed for the 2012-13 season, the Bruins have the least cap space in the NHL. With the salary cap recently raised to $70.2 million, the B's have $277,857 in salary cap space. They can get money back against the cap, however...

Ortiz still bitter over offseason treatment
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, the team's only All-Star this season, voiced some of his issues with the Red Sox and their upper management, a point made clear in a piece written by USA Today's Jorge L. Ortiz. In the story, the slugger suggested that he will not necessarily have an allegiance to the Sox on the open market.

Ortiz, a free agent after the season, made it clear in the piece that he has an issue with the Sox spending big on free agents but not on their longest-tenured player. 

"If you go crazy and give contracts to whoever comes along despite not knowing how they're going to do, then you don't give me my due consideration, even though I do my thing every year, [expletive] that," Ortiz said. "I'm going to be open to anything. My mentality is not going to be, 'I...

Mashup: Youk delivers winner for White Sox

Kevin Youkilis is feeling right at home in Chicago. One day after homering in his first at-bat in his U.S. Cellular Field debut as a member of the White Sox, the former Red Sox third baseman hit a walk-off single in the 10th inning Wednesday for a 5-4 victory over the Rangers.

"I'm having a great time with this team," said Youkilis, who is 5-for-10 with five RBIs the last two days and is hitting .305 with nine RBIs since being traded from Boston. "It's always a lot more fun when you do stuff like that."

Youkilis was down 0-2 to Rangers reliever Mike Adams before extending the at-bat to nine pitches and ending it with a single over the shortstop's head that scored Alejandro De Aza.

"For me, you try to describe to people the importance of Youk coming over. That at-bat really describes it the best, he is 0-2, he is grinding and it's just continuous and that is the kind of stuff is infectious throughout the lineup for us...

Jason Terry: Ray Allen return 'wouldn't hurt'

Jason Terry -- who has agreed to three-year deal with the Celtics worth just over $15 million -- told Fox Sports Florida Wednesday regarding Ray Allen's potential return to the Celts, "That certainly wouldn't hurt."

The 34-year-old Terry also talked to the network about his decision to join the Celtics. "I just love that they have a championship pedigree," he said. "And I think their point guard (Rajon Rondo) is the best in the business at controlling both ends of the floor. And they’ve got Hall of Famers."

A Celtics source told the Boston Herald Wednesday, "We're still going after Ray." (To learn more about the dynamic in regards to how the Celtics are approaching the remainder of the offseason, click here.)

Allen's agent Jim Tanner confirmed to the Herald that Allen...
