Report: C's Bradley nears deal in Israel

Celtics backup point guard Avery Bradley is close to signing a deal with the Israel Premier League's Hapoel Jerusalem squad, according to a Yahoo! Sports report. The agreement that could come as early as this week would include the all-important NBA opt-out clause.

The 20-year-old Bradley averaged 1.7 points, 0.5 rebounds and 0.4 assists in just 5.2 minutes over 31 games this past season. He played nine games for the Maine Red Claws -- the C's NBA Development League affiliate -- averaging 17.1 points, 5.2 assists and 4.8 rebounds in 32.2 minutes. Bradley recently participated in the Impact Basketball Competitive Training Series in Las Vegas.

Rosenthal on D&C: Will Sox overreact again?

Fox Sports baseball reporter Ken Rosenthal joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to address the issues with the Red Sox that led to the departure of manager Terry Francona after eight seasons.

"It doesn't look good, no question about it," Rosenthal said. "At the same time, I'm not sure all these histrionics are worth their while, starting with the departure of Tito. Listen, all teams have problems in the clubhouse. I would venture to say this stuff was going on in the 2004 and 2007 clubhouse. But back then Tito was winning and not losing. Hey, no problem.

"The real question is, How do you react to all this? And a lot of people in baseball feel they've already overreacted once. The question is, Will they overreact again and allow Theo [Epstein] to leave? Because they control that. They don't have to allow him to leave."

Asked if he thinks Epstein is part of the solution in Boston, Rosenthal replied:...

Mashup: Yankees vendor out after Sox joke

The Yankees suspended a longtime beer vendor for the first two games of the American League Division Series after he had a brief exchange with Red Sox reliever Alfredo Aceves during last Sunday's doubleheader at Yankee Stadium. Steve Lazarus, who also works as a standup comedian, said he had a playful exchange with Aceves when he saw the former Yankee pass by a freight elevator on the terrace level before the evening game. According to Lazarus, he walked over to Aceves and joked, "Hey, you got ID?" Aceves responded by grabbing his crotch and saying, "I got your ID right here."

Lazarus, 53, said a supervisor soon accused him of harassing the player, leading to his suspension. "They take my badge -- this is only my 35th year, by the way -- and they escort me out like a common criminal," Lazarus told the New York Post. "To suspend me, when I did nothing?"

Added Lazarus: "The vendor is always wrong. I'm so...

Youkilis likely to undergo surgery Tuesday

According to multiple major league sources, Kevin Youkilis will likely undergo surgery Tuesday for the sports hernia that plagued the third baseman throughout the second half of the 2011 season. Youkilis, however, will first confer with doctors regarding non-surgical options.

If Youkilis does undergo the surgical procedure, it is expected he will be able to begin physical activities in 4-6 weeks, with no limitations anticipated heading into spring training.

The 32-year-old finished '11 hitting .258 with a .833 OPS in 120 games, having carried the best OPS of any third baseman in baseball through July and earning his third career All-Star berth. Youkilis was limited to just 12 games in August (hitting .209) and 10 games in September, when he went just 6-for-36 without a home run before being shut down Sept. 15.

Report: Mayo hurts MCL, not season-ending

The Patriots will be without their starting middle linebacker for an extended period of time after Jerod Mayo suffered a sprained MCL in his left knee, according to a report from Comcast's Tom Curran. Mayo had to be helped off the field after the injury in the second quarter and later carted to the Patriots locker room. He did not return.

According to the report, Mayo's injury is not season-ending but the team is likely to know more when the medical staff looks at it on Monday back in Foxboro.

"We'll look at it [Monday] and see where he's at going into this week," Pats coach Bill Belichick said after the 31-19 win in Oakland.

Defensive lineman Kyle Love and running back Danny Woodhead both went down with ankle injuries, with Love returning in the third quarter....
