Wake: 'Why would I go somewhere else?'

FORT MYERS, Fla. — The future of Tim Wakefield with the Red Sox has been a topic all spring, as the 44-year-old battles for a spot on the roster. Wakefield was asked by WEEI.com on Tuesday morning if he envisioned a scenario where he could pitch for any other team than the Red Sox.

 

"Why would I? I've been here for so long, why would I go somewhere else?," asked Wakefield, who made his first appearance with the Red Sox on May 27, 1995. "This is ... that uniform is me. I can't, it'd be like Carl Yastrzemski going somewhere else to play one year or two years."

 

Wakefield also told WEEI.com that he fully expects to make the team this spring, and still "feels confident" that he can be a help to the Sox if given the opportunity to start.

Marchand calls out diving Habs' antics
By: DJ Bean

Bruins forward Brad Marchand landed a couple of pregame shots at the Canadiens Tuesday morning, calling out their style of play and on-ice antics. 

 

“They like to get in and shoot their mouths off and then when you hit them they’ll dive down and fall easy,” Marchand told a group that included CTV’s Arpon Basu.

 

“They get a lot of shots behind the play, and then they play it off like when we run them they didn’t do anything to deserve it.”

 

Marchand has been the center of multiple high points of the rivalry this season. He missed three games as the result of a crushing hit from Habs defenseman P.K. Subban on Dec. 16 and provided the late hit that fueled a line brawl (and eventual goalie fight on Feb. 9.

Davis, Delonte likely to miss next two games

WALTHAM -- After sounding hopeful on Saturday that Delonte West would return Wednesday against the Clippers, Doc Rivers ruled that possiblity out following practice on Tuesday. West has missed the last four games with a sprained right ankle and was limited to working out on an exercise bicycle Tuesday while the team held an open practice. 

 

"He's not going to play [Wednesday]," Rivers said. "I think he's doubtful for Friday, as well. We're hoping Sunday." Meanwhile, Von Wafer is also battling leg issues and Rivers said his back-up guard, injured against Golden State last Friday, is out indefinitely. "Von is going to miss a while. He's nowhere close to coming back," Rivers said. 

 

There was some good news as Rivers sounded much more hopeful with regard to Glen Davis, who is battling left knee soreness. The power forward has missed the last two games with patellar tendinitis. ...

Gonzalez hopes to play next week

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Adrian Gonzalez participated in batting practice on the field at City of Palms Park for the second time in three days on Tuesday and said he feels he is "getting closer" to playing in a spring training game.

 

"We're at the point where you have to push it a little I guess," Gonzalez said at his locker on Tuesday afternoon. "Tomorrow I'll hit again on the field, and we'll see how it responds to hitting back-to-back days. Right now the plan is to take it easy on Thursday, give it a rest, and start planning out for some game action next week sometime, or maybe even earlier."

Florio on M&M: Expect 2nd NFL extension

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com joined the Mut & Merloni show Tuesday to provide an update on the collective bargaining agreement negotiations. Looking at the pace of negotiations, Florio said, "I still think they're eventually going to get a deal. I'm cautiously optimistic they will. I just don't think it's going to happen this week."

 

Added Florio: "An extension [is the] most likely outcome. Second most likely outcome is getting a deal done. Third most likely outcome is everything falling apart. I don't think it's all going to fall apart. I'd like to see a deal get done so we can get on to free agency. But I'll settle for an extension."

 

The sides negotiated Monday for only four hours, from 3-7 p.m. "It was ridiculous," Florio said of the short session. "I've been chiding the two sides for keeping bankers' hours. … We've seen that over the last couple of weeks. They come...
