Legler on D&C: Rondo's foul long overdue

ESPN analyst and former NBA player Tim Legler joined Dennis & Callahan on Wednesday morning to talk about the Celtics' loss to the Heat.

Much of the talk about Tuesday night centered on Rajon Rondo's flagrant foul on Dwyane Wade in the closing seconds of the game. Legler did not have an issue with the play.

Said Legler: "I look at it as a guy who's competitive and feisty. … To me, I was just saying to myself, 'Why [is it] with 18 seconds left in the game before somebody does that?' Because I got sick personally -- I'm not even a diehard Celtics fan -- I'm getting sick watching the game, how many times are guys just going to turn the corner and get to the basket without any sort of resistance or contact? 

"All of the talk about Kevin Garnett shrugging off Ray Allen before the game and all of those things, there's an attitude there with Boston, but I didn't see it manifest itself on the court. They didn't play...

Bogaerts, Bradley top Sox prospect list

Xander Bogaerts, who in 2012 became the first Red Sox teenager since Tony Conigliaro in 1964 to launch 20 or more homers in a season, earned top-prospect honors in the Red Sox system from Baseball America, which posted its list of the top 10 prospects in the team's farm system on Wednesday. As a 19-year-old in High-A Salem and Double-A Portland, Bogaerts hit .307 with a .373 OBP, .523 slugging mark, .896 OPS and 20 homers in 127 games while playing shortstop. 

Here's how the Red Sox' top 10 stacked up, with 2012 "season age" (meaning a player's age on July 1) and level in parentheses:

1. Bogaerts, SS (19 years old; High-A/Double-A): .307/.373/.523/.896, 20 HR
2. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF (22, High-A/Double-A): .315/.430/.482/.911, 9 HR, 24 SB
3. Matt Barnes, RHP (22, Single-A/High-A): 7-5, 2.86 ERA, 133 Ks, 29 BBs, 119 2/3 IP
4. Allen Webster, RHP (22, Double-A): 6-9, 3.86 ERA, 129 Ks, 61 BBs, 130 2/3 IP

Mashup: Jaguars to make play for Tebow?

According to a report from a Jacksonville television station, the Jaguars are trying to engineer a trade with the Jets for Tim Tebow before Thursday's NFL trading deadline.

CBS 47 Action News credits a source as indicating the team's interest. Jaguars owner Shad Khan previously has expressed an interest in Tebow, who starred at the University of Florida before being drafted by the Broncos. Tebow, voted most overrated in a Sports Illustrated poll of NFL players, was traded from Denver to New York last offseason and has seen limited action behind Jets starter Mark Sanchez.

The report has not garnered much backing, with national reporters including NFL Network's Albert Breer indicating there have been no talks between the teams.

Wade: Rondo flagrant foul a 'punk play'

Dwyane Wade resisted retaliating when Rajon Rondo committed a flagrant foul in the closing seconds of Tuesday's game in Miami -- a 120-107 Heat win -- but the Heat guard called it a "punk play."

Rondo grabbed Wade around the neck on a drive to the basket. Wade then held the ball over his head and appeared as though he was going to throw the ball at Rondo, but he held back. Ray Allen then pulled Wade away.

"I've got my kids watching, so I stopped myself, but it was a punk play by him," Wade said. "He clotheslined me."

Added Heat star LeBron James: "[Wade] did show poise. I saw the anger on his face and what he wanted to do, and I'm glad he restrained from what he wanted to do. It wasn't a basketball play."

Wade, who scored a...

Butterfield still candidate for Blue Jays job

According to baseball sources, newly hired Red Sox third base coach Brian Butterfield remains a candidate for the Blue Jays managerial job despite being hired by Boston Tuesday.

Red Sox manager John Farrell confirmed Butterfield's potential candidacy with Toronto on Tuesday night. "Yes, it's a rare opportunity, and we would certainly not block that," Farrell said when asked if, as far as he knew, Butterfield was still in the mix for the Jays job. "But at the same time we're extremely excited about Brian joining us."

The Blue Jays allowed all of their coaches to seek employment elsewhere following the 2012 season, with first base coach Torey Lovullo joining the Red Sox as bench coach after Farrell left his post as Toronto manager to guide the Sox.

"With Butter, we have an outstanding baseball man from a baseball family, his dad [Jack Butterfield] being a longtime developer, person and coach," Farrell said of...
