Ortiz: All respect for Valentine 'gone'

Speaking on WEEI's Hot Stove show Thursday night, David Ortiz said he still has had no communication with Bobby Valentine since the former Red Sox manager's comments to Bob Costas. 

In the interview with Costas, Valentine suggested the designated hitter shut himself down during the 2012 season not because of Achilles tendon soreness, but due to the team trading away Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto, thereby choosing to plan for the future instead of prioritizing '12.

"He realized that this trade meant that we're not going to run this race and we're not even going to finish the race properly and he decided not to play anymore," Valentine said in the interview on "Costas Tonight" on NBC Sports Network. "I think at that time it was all downhill from there."

Thursday night, Ortiz -- who played in one game after injuring his Achilles July 14 -- reiterated his disdain for the comments...

Ortiz ahead of schedule, not fully recovered

Talking on WEEI's Hot Stove show Thursday night, David Ortiz said that after being examined by Red Sox team doctors, his injured right Achilles tendon was healing well, although it still had some ways to go to be 100 percent.

"I'm feeling pretty good. I had some of the team doctors right here, they just left. They went back to Boston after checking me out," Ortiz said by phone from the Dominican Republic. "Yesterday I started doing some agility drills, and that felt good. Tomorrow I'm going to continue doing it. After that if everything goes good I'm going to start doing my running. They found that I was doing good and I was pretty much ahead of the plan that they had.

"I'm not fully recovered. They say now with the new things that I'm going to be doing I'm probably going to get sore until I get used to it because I haven't been doing any running or agility for the past three or four months. But they said I'm looking pretty good...

Daly: 'No progress' between NHL/NHLPA
By: DJ Bean

NHL deputy commissioner Billy Daly issued the following statement Thursday after the league and NHLPA wrapped up two days of meetings with federal mediators present: 

"Today, we concluded two days of mediation with FMCS mediators and representatives of the NHL Players' Association. After spending several hours with both sides over two days, the presiding mediators concluded that the parties remained far apart, and that no progress toward a resolution could be made through further mediation at this point in time. We are disappointed that the mediation process was not successful." 

It was announced Monday that mediators would be brought in for the labor negotiations. To this point, the league has cancelled games through Dec. 14 due to the lack of a collective bargaining agreement.
