UPDATE: Campbell confirms Savard 'venting'
By: DJ Bean

According to an Oilers blogger out of Edmonton, e-mails sent by NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell back in 2007 suggest that he was upset with high-sticking calls on his son, Gregory (who now plays for the Bruins), and that he felt Bruins center Marc Savard was the "biggest faker going."

 

With the names and cities omitted in the e-mails, the blogger, Tyler Dellow, takes one e-mail in particular and suggests that Campbell was referring to Savard when he said that a referee is "supposed to see the act, not call the embellishing act." In the prior sentence, Campbell writes that the player believed to be Savard is a "little fake artist."

 

Campbell, of course, chose not to suspend Penguins forward Matt Cooke when he knocked Savard out last March with a hit to the head. Savard has not played this season as he continues to work his way back from post-concussion syndrome.

Belichick on Big Show: 'It starts with Peyton'

Patriots coach Bill Belichick, in his weekly appearance on The Big Show, discussed his team's victory on Sunday night over the Steelers as well as the challenge of having a short week to prepare for the Colts. He acknowledged that, in an effort to leave behind the Steelers game and start preparing for Indianapolis, it was a "short night," but that such a challenge would "feel a lot worse if you had fewer points [against Pittsburgh]."

 

Belichick explained that when preparing for a short week -- whether coming off of a Sunday night or Monday night game, or, as will be the case after facing the Colts on Sunday and getting ready for a Thanksgiving Thursday game against the Lions -- the Patriots try to do as much advance game-planning as possible over the summer.

 

"One of the things we try to do is in the offseason, when we know we have a short week, we really try to make sure that we put a little bit...

Belichick: QB proves 'why he's Tom Brady'

FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick and the rest of the Patriots had seen it before from Tom Brady. Fired up and ticked off about the lack of execution. But Belichick also pointed out, as was more readily apparent in the second half Sunday night, that there’s a good side to Brady’s emotion.

 

“There’s no question that Tom is the leader of our offense,” Belichick said Monday. “There’s no doubt about that. I think he has enough experience and understanding to know what’s right and wrong. He’s very encouraging when guys make good plays and do something that’s really good. He’s the first one to congratulate them, tell them about it, show them the appreciation.”

 

Brady went into a tirade late in the second quarter after a series of mistakes, like dropped passes, false starts and chop blocks.

 

“If there’s a mistake, whether it...

Red Sox claim Taylor Buchholz on waivers

The Red Sox claimed right-hander Taylor Buchholz on waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays, providing them with a low-risk, high-reward right-handed pitcher who could compete for a bullpen job.

 

Buchholz, who turned 29 in October, emerged as a dominant setup man for the Colorado Rockies in 2008, forging a 2.17 ERA in 63 appearances. However, he tore his ulnar collateral ligament in spring training the next year, and required Tommy John surgery that wiped out his 2009 campaign. He spent last year with the Rockies' Triple-A affiliate before returning to the majors last July. He made seven appearances for the Rockies before being placed on waivers, from which he was claimed by the Blue Jays. In all Buchholz made nine appearances in 2010, working his way to a 3.75 ERA while striking out nine and walking six in 12 innings.

 

Buchholz, who earned $1.055 million in each of the last two seasons, represents a relatively low-cost, low-...

Suspension over, Delonte West eyes return

Now that his 10-game NBA suspension is behind him, Delonte West is looking forward to returning to the lineup when the Celtics play the Wizards Wednesday at TD Garden. “I know what I can do,” West said. “I’m very confident in what I’m able to do out on the basketball floor. They’re not asking me to do anything I can’t do. They’re not telling me to post-up and get 30 rebounds. It’s time to go play my game. That’s the best feeling ever.”

 

Doc Rivers said after practice Monday that West will play, but he didn't offer specifics about minutes. The Celtics have been talking since training camp about West and Nate Robinson playing together in the backcourt and trading off point guard duties with West getting the team into sets and Robinson running the pick and roll.
