Mashup: Jets DB 'disappointed' with NY fans

Last week, it was a Giants player who expressed concern about New York fans' loyalty. On Tuesday, it was the Jets' turn. Safety Jim Leonhard is not pleased that quarterback Mark Sanchez received a mix of cheers and boos when he was introduced to the MetLife Stadium crowd before Sunday's win over the Bills.

"I think we have a great crowd," Leonhard said. "I think probably for one of the first times, I was kind of disappointed. Our starting quarterback gets booed in introductions. It’s kind of one of those things, that’s frustrating when … as players, you kind of turn to each other and say, ‘You know what? I guess we’re in this one today by ourselves. We can’t rely on the crowd to give us that energy because it’s already started out on a bad note.’ So I will say that this past weekend was really the first time that I’ve been kind of frustrated going into a game, which is bad.”

Report: C's eye Rondo for Paul trade

Celtics president Danny Ainge may be up to something big. According to Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick, Ainge is actively trying to trade Rajon Rondo for New Orleans guard Chris Paul.

Citing multiple sources, Amick said that Ainge is "highly motivated" to land Paul but has run into resistance from the Hornets, who need a third team to make the trade work. Ainge tried to acquire Paul in the 2005 draft, offering Paul Pierce in an attempt to move up to the third pick in the draft.

Paul can be a free agent after this season, and speculation had him interested in joining the Knicks, but New York lacks the trade resources to land the four-time All-Star. There will be a long list of teams interested in acquiring Paul, including the Lakers.

Meanwhile, ESPN's Chris Broussard reports that Ainge offered Rondo and Jeff...

Red Sox choose Valentine as next manager

According to an industry source, confirming multiple media reports, the Red Sox expect to name Bobby Valentine the 45th manager in team history. Mike Lynch of WCVB (via twitter) was the first to report the agreement.

"He's got it. I just spoke to him a little while ago," Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda, who managed Valentine in the minors with the Los Angeles Dodgers, said in a telephone interview with the AP.

Though Valentine was the last of six candidates to go through the interview process, and did so only after the Red Sox had conducted a second-round interview with Dale Sveum (at a time when he was about to receive an offer from the Cubs), the veteran of 15 years managing in the major leagues and seven more in Japan's NPB emerged as a frontrunner once he publicly entered...
