Mashup: Yanks deny A-Rod on trading block

The drumbeat in New York continues for the Yankees to trade Alex Rodriguez, but general manager Brian Cashman is showing loyalty -- at least publicly -- to the team's embattled slugger. While acknowledging he will listen to offers for any of his players, Cashman insisted Sunday that it's "unrealistic" to think he's going to trade A-Rod.

"If anyone wastes their time thinking Alex Rodriguez is not going to be with us in spring training, they'd be wrong," Cashman told the New York Daily News.

Rodriguez might think he's still an elite player, but Cashman seems convinced that the 37-year-old's contributions to the Yankees will be far more limited. Rodriguez hit .120 (3-for-25) with no RBIs in the 2012 postseason and was benched in the latter half of the Tigers' ALCS sweep.

"Is he still a superstar? No," Cashman said. "Is he still an above-average player at his position? Yes. He was this year and we...

Doc: Green 'Stood out more than everybody'

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said that forward Jeff Green "stood out more than everybody" during the preseason and that he has a chance to be "terrific" this season. 

"I just think he’s more aggressive, obviously," Rivers said. "He’s comfortable in his game. He understands how to score, how he can score through our offense. The other part is he’s happy. The guys like him, he likes them, he’s comfortable here now. I think last year, even though he didn’t play, probably did a world of good. Just being around the guys and they accepted him and I think all that helped him." 

Green laughed when told of Rivers' comments that he stood out during the preseason and said, "I doubt that. He’s lying to y’all. I think he was being nice for saying that. I’m very hard on myself. I felt like I could have done a lot more. This was a good start to my comeback, my whole...

C's lose to Sixers in preseason finale

In their final preseason tuneup, Celtics coach Doc Rivers played his regulars significant minutes but the C's were on the losing end of an 88-79 final score.  

Jeff Green had another strong outing with 12 points and 9 rebounds. His night was highlighted by a pair of athletic dunks and two blocks on Philly 7-footer Spencer Hawes at the rim. Green started alongside Paul Pierce on the wing with Brandon Bass (10 points, 4 rebounds) and Kevin Garnett up front and Rajon Rondo at the point. 

Rondo had 12 points and 10 assists, while Garnett added 8 points and 7 rebounds in 23 minutes. Courtney Lee, Jared Sullinger and rookie Kris Joseph made up the rest of Rivers' rotation until he emptied his bench in the fourth quarter.

The Celtics were without Darko Milicic (wrist), Chris Wilcox (back) and Avery Bradley (shoulder surgery). New addition Leandro Barbosa has not been cleared to play yet as he is resolving visa issues. Rivers also gave...

McCourty: 'My teammates saved my life'

FOXBORO -- After nearly fumbling away a win in devastating fashion, Devin McCourty was grateful to his Patriots teammates after a 29-26 overtime win over the Jets Sunday at Gillette Stadium. McCourty, after returning a kickoff 104 yards in the first quarter for a touchdown, fumbled a kickoff at the Patriots 18 after the Jets had tied the game, 23-23. The Jets did not take full advantage and converted only a field goal with 1:37 left to take a 26-23 lead. 

"My teammates saved my life today," McCourty said. "A bad mistake in the fourth quarter that I just have to do a better job of holding the ball. This was just a total team win. We just kept fighting. Things didn't go our way the whole game today. We made enough plays when we needed to for the win."

McCourty was rescued when Stephen Gostkowski hit a game-tying 43-yard field goal at the end of regulation to force overtime and a 48-yarder in overtime to provide the margin of...

Survival: Pats blow lead, beat Jets in OT

FOXBORO -- Stephen Gostkowski connected on a 48-yard field goal with 11:02 left in overtime and Jermaine Cunningham and Rob Ninkovich combined for a strip-sack that ended the game on the next possession as the Patriots blew a big lead but came back to beat the Jets, 29-26, in overtime at Gillette Stadium.

In what appeared to be another shocking collapse, the Patriots blew a 10-point fourth-quarter lead and trailed when Nick Folk hit his fourth field goal of the day from 43 yards with 1:37 left in the fourth. Devin McCourty - who returned a kickoff for a TD earlier - fumbled a kickoff at the Patriots 18 after the Jets tied the game with a field goal. The Patriots improve to 4-3 and sole possession of first in the AFC East, a half-game ahead of the idle Dolphins and a game ahead of the Jets and Bills.

Gostkowski forced overtime by drilling a 43-yard field goal at the fourth-quarter gun from nearly the identical spot he missed at the end of the...
