Mashup: Steinbrenners to sell Yankees?

According to the New York Daily News, "rumors are flying in Major League Baseball and New York banking circles" that the Yankees could soon be put up for sale by the Steinbrenner family. The report indicates the family is considering its options following the April sale of the Dodgers for a record $2.175 billion.

Yankees president Randy Levine denied the report. "I can say to you there is absolutely, positively nothing to this," he said. "The Steinbrenners are not selling the team."

But the Daily News' sources paint a picture of a family that has not inherited George Steinbrenner's love of owning the team.

Said one source of general partner Hal Steinbrenner: "Hal hates the players, and he hates the media."

Valentine: Red Sox are championship caliber

After watching his team finish off a 5-3 road trip -- while going 11-9 during a stretch of 20 straight games -- Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine offered the highest praise for his club while conducting his postgame interview on NESN.

"We play like this the rest of the season," Valentine said after the Red Sox' 6-5 win over the Orioles Wednesday, "we're going to win the championship."

With their latest win, the Red Sox improve to .500, having won 10 of their last 13 games. Over that stretch Valentine's team leads the majors in runs scored and OPS. Over the 13 games, the Sox pitching staff is third in the major leagues in ERA (3.00), with its starters claiming the big league's second-best ERA (3.14).

"I’m ecstatic," Valentine told reporters after the win over the O's. "The credit goes the...

Report: Bradley likely done for playoffs

PHILADELPHIA -- Avery Bradley missed his second-straight game because of injuries to both his shoulders and the Globe reported via a source close to the player that it was, "in the 'high 90's' percentile that Bradley will be shut down and may require surgery."

Before Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, which the Celtics lost 82-75, coach Doc Rivers said, "We’re just going to keep saying day to day but we really don’t know. It’s a hard injury with both shoulders now being involved." 

A team source said no definitive action has been decided yet and there were "tough decisions" to be made.

Bradley has been a vital part of the Celtics' resurgence over the second half of the season thanks to his tenacious on-the-ball defense. His injured left shoulder had popped out repeatedly...

Rondo: 'We can't put it all on our defense'

PHILADELPHIA -- The Celtics made just 26-of-78 shots Wednesday and shot just 33 percent as they failed to close out the 76ers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals at Wells Fargo Center. In forcing a Game 7 Saturday in Boston, the Sixers didn't exactly light it up, as they had just 33 points at halftime and finished shooting 46 percent for the game in an 82-75 win. 

The Celtics defense has been solid in the series, allowing Philadelphia to score just 82, 92 and 82 points in their three wins. But Wednesday night, the Celtics were done in by poor shooting from the floor and 17 turnovers that led to 19 Philadelphia points. 

"We did OK," Rajon Rondo said of Boston's defense. "I think we could've done a lot better. Pick-and-roll defense and then it comes down to individual 1-on-1 defense. We did hold them to 82 but I think we could've held them to 70 or the high 60s."

Rondo and the Celtics were done in by...

KG: C's 'confidence very high' for Game 7

PHILADELPHIA -- Kevin Garnett spoke about Philadelphia's fans after a Game 5 win in Boston. On Wednesday, following an 82-75 loss to the Sixers in Game 6, Garnett made another proclamation of sorts for Game 7 Saturday in Boston. 

"Win or go home," Garnett said when asked about the team's mindset heading into a do-or-die Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. "Confidence is very high. We've been here before, very experienced. All out, nothing less."

Indeed, the Celtics have played in five Game 7s in the Big Three era of Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. They are 3-2 in those previous five, beating Atlanta and Cleveland on their way to the title in 2008. They beat the Bulls in seven in the first round in 2009 before losing the next round to the Magic in Game 7 at the Garden. With a chance at an 18th banner in 2010, they lost Game 7 of the NBA finals in Los Angeles to the Lakers. 

"Game 7s are what...
