Bard: Can't worry about returning to Red Sox

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- Speaking before the Pawtucket Red Sox' game against the Charlotte Knights Thursday night at McCoy stadium, reliever Daniel Bard admitted that he had initially been distracted by the rush to return to the major leagues in his initial Triple-A outings.

"That's been my main focus, to take my focus off of trying to get back to Boston because that's pretty counterproductive," he said. "If I go out there every time I pitch and all I'm thinking is, 'OK, pitch good so I can be back with the big league team,' that's not going to work. I think that's actually what happened in some of my not-so-good outings. I've realized my focus has to be to get better every day and be the best pitcher for this team, right now, in Pawtucket, that I can be. If I can take care of that, the rest will take care of itself."

Bard is coming off of perhaps his best outing since joining the PawSox, pitching a flawless inning against the Knights...

Report: B's give Rask one-year deal
By: DJ Bean

According to TSN's Bob McKenzie (via twitter), the Bruins and goaltender Tuukka Rask have agreed to terms on a one-year, $3.5 million deal. Rask was set to become a restricted free agent on Sunday, the opening of free agency. 

Last season, Rask was limited to 22 starts due to an abdomen/groin injury suffered in March. He posted an 11-8-3 record with a 2.05 goals-against average and .929 save percentage. He is expected to be the team's No. 1 goalie next season, with Anton Khudobin serving as the backup. 

In order to be an unrestricted free agent, a player must be either 27 years of age or have played seven years in the league. Rask, 25, will not have met either of those benchmarks, so he will be a restricted free agent again following the coming season.

Kraft: I think we need an NFL team in London

Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft said he believes it’s time for the NFL to have a team overseas.

“I personally think we should have a franchise in London, and that is something I am going to push for,” said Kraft, speaking as part of a promotional tour in advance of the Patriots-Rams game in England on Oct. 28. “I think I said that the last time we were over here in 2009 and before this next decade is out, I hope we have a team here. I think that would be right for the NFL, and this fan base has proven they deserve it.”

In the same interview, conducted with SkySports.com, Kraft said he would welcome the idea of the Patriots -- who will be playing their second game overseas in four years this fall -- playing a game in England on an annual basis.

“We lobbied hard to come back after having such a good experience in 2009,” Kraft said. “We would love to be the permanent visiting...

Report: C's 'working' to get in lottery

According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Celtics are "aggressively working" to move into the late lottery, if not higher, in Thursday's NBA draft.

Wojnarowski does not report what the Celtics might deal to move up -- or which teams might be interested -- but the Celtics do own the No. 21 and No. 22 picks in the draft. 

“It is worth trading up, but it all depends on the price,” Danny Ainge said on Wednesday when asked about the possibility of a trade. “We’re continuing to have discussions and will until the draft goes on.

“We might make a trade. Generally I would expect to keep them, and we’re preparing to keep them. But we’re also preparing to move up and back. There’s all sorts of things that will be on the table on draft night.”

NFL moves kickoff times from 4:15 to 4:25

The NFL announced Thursday they are moving the 4:15 p.m. Sunday kickoffs to 4:25 p.m. to reduce overlap with the 1 p.m. games. (The 4:05 p.m. game times will not change.)

The league released the following statement:

 “In researching the kickoff time shift, the NFL analyzed games from the 2009-11 seasons and found that 44 games required part of the audience to be switched to a mandatory doubleheader game kickoff. With a 4:25 PM ET kickoff time, that number that would have been reduced by 66 percent to only 15 games. Approximately 40 games over the full 2012 season will be impacted by the 10-minute kickoff time shift -- with half of those moves coming in games played in Mountain or Pacific time zones with 1:25 PM or 2:25 PM local starts.”

Locally, this will impact the start time of two Patriots’ games this season -- the Week 5 (Oct. 7) home game against the Broncos and Week 7 (Oct. 21...
