Kessel, Grabovski lift Leafs over Bruins
By: DJ Bean

With trade rumors surrounding the team, Phil Kessel and Mikhail Grabovski proved to be all the Maple Leafs needed on Tuesday night as they beat the Bruins, 4-3.

 

The Bruins received goals from Daniel Paille, Gregory Campbell and Patrice Bergeron. Kessel, who entered Tuesday riding a streak of 14 straight games without a goal, scored twice on the power play for the Leafs, while Grabovski had two goals of his own.

 

Paille, who was playing in his first game since being suspended four games for a blindside hit on Stars forward Raymond Sawada, opened the scoring 8:04 into the night thanks to an odd bounce off Mike Komisarek. The Leafs responded in the first period when Kessel batted a rebound past Tim Thomas with Zdeno Chara in the penalty box for boarding.

 

Toronto would take a 2-1 lead in the second thanks to Grabovski’s strike, though the B’s came back with a power-play tally from Campbell and...

Sox trade Coello to Cubs for Thomas

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Red Sox announced that they have traded right-hander Robert Coello to the Cubs in exchange for minor league infielder Tony Thomas.

 

Thomas is a 24-year-old second baseman who had 51 extra-base hits in 116 games in 2010. For the season, he hit .276 with a .338 OBP, .485 slugging mark and .823 OPS for Double-A Tennessee of the Southern League. A baseball source described him as an athletic second baseman with excellent makeup, good instincts and feel for the game who plays the game with high energy.

 

The Florida State product — a third-round pick in the 2007 draft — displays gap-to-gap power with the occasional ability to clear the fences when pulling the ball. He’s hit 11 homers in each of the last two years, both in Double-A. He’s also stolen 78 bases in just over 400 minor league games, though just 28 of those have come in the last two years in Double-A.

Buchholz eyes Lester-type extension

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Red Sox haven't talked with Clay Buchholz or his representatives yet, but the pitcher said that he would be open to exploring a Jon Lester-type of extension with the team. Lester signed a five-year deal worth $30 million before the 2009 season (with a team option in 2014 worth $13 million).

 

"I think that would definitely be a base model for it — numbers-wise, security reasons, I think every player with less than three years of service time, that’s what they strive for," said Buchholz. "I’m not saying I’m as good as Lester or I deserve what he got, but just from the other guys who signed their deal in the past year or so with the same service, I think that’s definitely a good starting point if there ever was one."

 

The Sox have a team policy that a long-term deal with players who have accumulated fewer than six years of service time and remain under...

Report: Kaberle will only accept trade to B's
By: DJ Bean

According to Sportsnet.ca, Maple Leafs defenseman Tomas Kaberle would be willing to accept a trade to the Bruins. In fact, Sportsnet is reporting that the defenseman, who has a no trade clause in his contract, has granted the Maple Leafs permission to discuss a deal with only Boston. 

According to a tweet from The Fourth Period's David Pagnotta, the talks between the two teams do not involve the Bruins sending the Maple Leafs' first-round pick, acquired in the Phil Kessel trade, back to Toronto.

 

Kaberle will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli told WEEI.com last month that the Bruins were interested in adding a defenseman who could log substantial minutes. Kaberle, who has three goals and 33...
