Pats practice Saturday: 3 miss again

FOXBORO -- Despite indication from coach Bill Belichick that injured defensive linemen Mike Wright and Myron Pryor were "doing better" this week, both were missing for a third straight day at Patriots practice inside a cold Dana Farber Field House. Also missing for a third straight practice was cornerback Jonathan Wilhite, who is nursing a sore hip. 

 

The team practiced in sweats and shells in their final formal on-field workout before Monday night's game against the Jets. Wright is dealing with the effects of a neck injury along with a concussion suffered in the game against the Colts while Pryor injured his back against the Browns and hasn't played since.

Source: Kelly, Rizzo, Fuentes in A-Gon deal

According to a major league source, minor leaguers Casey Kelly, Reymond Fuentes, and Anthony Rizzo are the agreed upon players that would be sent to the Padres in exchange for Adrian Gonzalez if the first baseman if a deal is finalized. Gonzalez is in Boston undergoing a physical with the Red Sox, who are also negotiating an extension for the 28-year-old. Gonzalez is slated to make $6.3 million in 2011, the final year of his current contract.

 

Both Kelly and Fuentes were first-round picks by the Red Sox, with Kelly, a right-handed pitcher, being selected with the 30th overall selection in '08, and Fuentes, a center fielder, having been taken at No. 28 in '09. The 21-year-old Rizzo, a first baseman considered perhaps the Red Sox best power prospect, was taken in the sixth-round of the '07 draft.

 

The 19-year-old Fuentes (who is the cousin of New York Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran) hit .270 with five homers and 42 stolen...

Report: Sox, Padres agree to Gonzalez deal

According to an ESPN report by Buster Olney, the Red Sox have agreed to a deal in principle with the San Diego Padres on a deal to acquire first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. According to the report, Major League Baseball has given permission for the Red Sox to negotiate with the slugger on a new contract. Olney also reports that Gonzalez could undergo a physical as soon as Saturday.

 

A source familiar with the situation told WEEI.com that while there were remaining roadblocks to a deal, there was reason for optimism that it would get done. If so, Gonzalez would give the Red Sox an elite middle-of-the-order bat who has hit 30 or more homers in each of the last four years while playing Gold Glove-caliber defense.

 

It is not yet known which prospects the Red Sox would part with in a Gonzalez deal, but one source said on Friday that he found...

Shaq: 'These young cats have no respect'

Bulls center Joakim Noah has done a lot of talking about Kevin Garnett, and Shaquille O'Neal stood up for his teammate after the Celtics beat the Bulls, 104-92. "These young cats have no respect," O'Neal said. "So, Kevin just has to teach them." 

 

Garnett got the better of Noah, scoring 20 points to go with 17 rebounds. They were assessed double technical fouls in the third quarter. "I'm going to tell you something about people, man," Garnett said. "Everybody has an opinion, and obviously he had one. I'm not entertaining nor addressing nobodies. I'm not even entertaining them. I'm focused on basketball and these wins and trying to make this team better. Other than that, I'm not on anything."

 

Asked if he felt Noah was a "nobody," Garnett replied, "Next question."
