Report: Damon 'would love' return to Yanks

According to the New York Post, outfielder Johnny Damon has been told by the Tigers that he is not in their plans for the 2011 season. Damon signed a one-year, $8 million deal with the Tigers last offseason. In August, the Red Sox claimed Damon on waivers, but the former Boston icon said that he would exercise his right to veto a deal rather than come back to the Sox.

 

At the time, Damon cited his loyalty to the Tigers, and his hope that he would be a part of their plans for both 2010 and beyond. But, according to the Post, the Tigers have informed the 36-year-old that they will go in a different direction.

 

"They told me they are looking for a prototypical type DH like Adam Dunn," Damon told the paper. "They said they need that type of bat in the middle of order. I am a No. 1...

Belichick on Big Show: 'We'll be competitive'

Patriots head coach Bill Belichcik joined the Big Show on Monday to discuss the coming game against the Ravens, his team's efforts to elicit turnovers from opponents and the quick integration by running back Danny Woodhead into the offensive blueprint. He also discussed further the decision to trade wide receiver Randy Moss to the Vikings. 

 

"When you put it all together, that’s kind of how it came out. In the end, I just felt like that was the best thing to do," said Belichick. "I never personally talked to [the Vikings]. They had shown some interest a long time ago. It came up kind of more recently, and we followed through on it."

 

Belichick said that the emergence of more receiving weapons in the form of players such as tight ends Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski "might have been a little bit of a factor" in the willingness to move Moss (and a seventh-round pick) for a third...

Bruins make McGrattan signing official
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced on Monday that they have signed enforcer Brian McGrattan to a one-year deal. McGrattan, 29, had travelled with the team to Belfast and Prague while on a tryout.

 

The 29-year-old has played in 182 games between the Senators, Coyotes, and Flames. Though known throughout the NHL as one of the league’s most willing fighters, McGrattan’s most impressive statistic was his 551 penalty minutes in 71 AHL games in the 2004-05 season.

 

The team also placed goaltender Nolan Schaefer on waivers with the intention of assigning him to Providence. Teams were allowed to bring a third goaltender on the season-opening European trip, and as a result the former Providence College netminder traveled with the Bruins.

Shaq won't play Tuesday in Philly

Doc Rivers plans to sit Shaquille O'Neal Tuesday night when the Celtics play at Philadelphia and there's a chance he may decide to rest several more players as the Celtics begin a four-games in five days road trip.

 

Shaq sat out Saturday's practice with soreness in his hip. O'Neal said after Sunday's game with the Raptors that he has arthritis. The move is said to be precautionary and one of the reasons why Rivers in on record as saying it's not realistic that O'Neal will play all 82 games during the regular season.
