Ainge: No rush to get Pietrus back

Appearing as guest on The Big Show, Celtics president Danny Ainge said that Mickael Pietrus is improving, but still not ready to undergo baseline testing as outlined by the NBA in their new concussion program.

"He still has concussion symptoms and until he's asymptomatic, no headaches and no sensitivity to light, we won't even be able to test him," Ainge said. "The league has implemented new procedures once he becomes asymptotic and he's not there yet, although he is improving each day."

Asked if he thought there was a chance that Pietrus doesn't return this season, Ainge said, "We're not thinking that way at all. There's not a whole lot we can do. If we find that information out we'll have to react and go get someone out of the D-League or something. Right now, I don't see how that would happen. He is getting better each day.

"I anticipate within the week that he'll start getting tested and get back to...

Aceves: Starting would be 'like a dream'

 FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Alfredo Aceves called the potential opportunity to become a starter as "a dream," and reiterated how good he feels after his latest spring training start. Aceves' comments came after the pitcher threw six innings against the Blue Jays at JetBlue Park Thursday, allowing tow runs on three hits while totaling 87 pitches.

The Red Sox lost the matchup with the Blue Jays, 3-2.

"It's like a dream, to start," Aceves said. "Being the first pitcher in (a) major league baseball (game). That's a dream. Obviously it's a dream. Of course it's something every single pitcher tries to be, be the first pithier in the major leagues. The best. I'm not coming to play without reason."

Aceves, who said he was happier with his fastball command than in his last appearance (3IP, 9 runs), insisted that while his preference continues to be entering the season as a starter, he won't be disappointed if his role is...

KG: 'I don't know what I'm going to do'

Celtics' center Kevin Garnett joined Mut & Merloni on Thursday and addressed his move to the position, as well as what his future holds for him as an unrestricted free agent. Garnett acknowledged that he doesn't like playing the five and likened coach Doc Rivers' system to Cuba, joking, "You don't really have a lot of say."

Still, Garnett added that he would, "Run through a brick wall for Doc." Asked whether playing for Rivers would factor into his free agent decision-making, Garnett said:

"I love Doc. If I was to come back next year it would be probably for Doc. I don't want to limit my options or nothing like that. I don't know what I'm going to do next year. I know our team is changing. I know a lot of the guys when I came here are not even here anymore. That sense of family has been depleted a bit. I will make my decision, and figure out what I'm going to do.

"I never wanted to be pieced around, or...

Hoyer: Cubs had no knowledge of injury

 FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer told MLB.com Thursday that Chicago wasn't aware of the elbow problem which has forced Chris Carpenter to have bone spurs removed. Carpenter came over from the Cubs in February as part of the compensation package for Theo Epstein.

"It's certainly something we had no knowledge of," Hoyer said. "I don't think he had any elbow issues for the last two years. Its' unexpected and unfortunate.

"It's obviously something you never want to happen. With any trade, you want both sides to feel good. It's not a great thing to have happen for Chris and the Red Sox."

A Red Sox team source confirmed that there were no issues with the medical information gathered from the Cubs when making the deal for Carpenter, with the Sox evaluating both the physical the pitcher underwent with Chicago at the beginning of the spring, as well as the entrance interview. The teams will keep...

Beckett: Is Schilling one of our pitchers?

Responding to Curt Schilling's criticism that things aren't going well in Red Sox camp under manager Bobby Valentine, Sox pitcher Josh Beckett said in an interview with The Big Show, "I haven't seen him around this year. Is he one of our pitchers?"

"I haven't seen him around," Beckett continued. "I'd think if someone knew that much they'd probably be a little closer to it. Game's a lot easier from over there [as a media person], I think. As far as him speaking about how things are being run, I haven't seen him around here to where he would know that much."

Beckett said that things have been "great" with Valentine and he's particular liked some of the changes he's made for the pitchers.  

"My legs have never felt this good coming out of spring training," Beckett said. "We don'...
