Bobby V: Pettitte won't be the same

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, asked about the return of left-hander Andy Pettitte to the Yankees, suggested that the 39-year-old represented a nice addition for New York, but that he will be a different pitcher than the one who walked away from the game after the 2010 season.

"I don’t think he’s coming back to where he was. Call it a hunch," Valentine told reporters. "But he’s a good pitcher. I always respected Andy. I always thought he was a borderline Hall of Famer. You add someone to your staff, you’re doing good. ... They had too much pitching before. Now, what do they have? Too, too, too much pitching? He’s pretty good. Is he going to be a starter or just come in to pick people off?"

Pettitte, who signed a minor league deal, owns a career 240-138 record with a 3.88 ERA. He last pitched in 2010 for the Yankees, going 11-3 with a 3.28 ERA while being limited to 21 starts and 129 innings by...

Pats announce White, Gregory signings

The Patriots officially announced the re-signing of linebacker Tracy White and addition of free agent safety Steve Gregory on Friday.

White, 30, is a veteran of 10 NFL seasons with the Seattle Seahawks (2003-04), Jacksonville Jaguars (2005), Green Bay Packers (2006-2008), Philadelphia Eagles (2008-2009) and the Patriots (2010-11). The 6-foot, 230 pound linebacker was originally signed by Seattle as a rookie free agent out of Howard in 2003. White came to New England in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 5, 2010. The Patriots acquired White and a 2012 seventh-round draft pick from the Eagles in exchange for a 2012 sixth-round pick.

White has been a leading special teams performer for the Patriots over the last two season, finishing second on the team in 2010 with 18 special teams tackles and second in 2011 with 14 special teams tackles. Last season, White played in 15 games with one start and finished the season with 25...

Peverley hopes to return before playoffs
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins forward Rich Peverley skated for the third straight day Friday at Ristuccia Arena. The veteran winger then spoke to the media for the first time since suffering his knee injury last month. 

Peverley has been out since Feb. 15, when a knee-on-knee hit from then-Canadiens defenseman Hal Gill left him with a sprained MCL in his right knee. 

"I feel pretty good," he said. "I've been skating for a couple of days, and it's getting better every day." 

Added Peverley: "The first couple of days were kind of just getting back into it, and then today was a little bit harder, a little longer. I felt pretty good on the ice. It's just about taking gradual steps."

Peverley has yet to practice with teammates and said that there is currently no timetable for when that will happen. At the time of his injury, the Bruins estimated that he would miss 4-6 weeks. He hopes to make a return to...

Rivers: Chris Johnson 'an option'

SACRAMENTO -- Now that the trade deadline has passed, the Celtics will turn their attention to the veteran free agent market in their quest for a big man. Players must be bought out of their contracts and waived by March 23 to be eligible for the postseason roster and while they need someone, there are no guarantees. The Celtics struck gold with Sam Cassell and PJ Brown, who they coaxed out of retirement, but had less success with Mikki Moore and Troy Murphy, to name two.

"It’s gone 50-50. That’s probably why they’ve been bought out," coach Doc Rivers said. "Usually when a guy’s been bought out it’s because the other team is pretty much given up on him and we’re thinking we can resurrect whatever we see. Or sometimes a guy’s just not happy in the place where he’s at. It’s always a risk, but in our case it wouldn’t be much of a risk if the guy was over 6-6. He would still be tall....

Julien: Bruins 'rattled,' but resilient
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- The Bruins held and hour-long practice Friday afternoon at Ristuccia Arena, less than 24 hours prior to Saturday's 1 p.m. matinee against the Flyers. 

Having lost four consecutive games for the first time in over two years, the B's could be bumped out of first place in the Northeast Division by the Senators Friday and fall into seventh place in the Eastern Conference. 

"I don't think it takes a genius to understand that [our confidence] is a little rattled right now, but at the same time, this is the majority of the group who showed resiliency last year when we went through some tough times, and we did get ourselves out of it," coach Claude Julien said after the practice. "I have no doubt that we will [this time] also. This is our battle to fight, nobody else's. You have to have confidence in your group, and we do. I think our experience and the past certainly shows that this is a group that can do it."...
