Ray: 'Can't say [Rondo] affected my decision'

Ray Allen downplayed reports of friction between himself and Rajon Rondo at his introductory press conference Wednesday afternoon in Miami as a member of the Heat, although he made it clear he does not have a strong relationship with the enigmatic Celtics point guard. While Allen acknowledged "there's differences" and noted that he has been in contact with Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett but not Rondo this offseason, he insisted his move to Miami was not sparked by Rondo.

"I haven't spoken with [Rondo] at all," Allen said. "I know when I came down here I texted Paul and Kevin. Those are the guys that I talked quite a bit with over the years. We shared a lot of similar philosophies. Those are the guys, when we came into Boston together, a lot was put on our shoulders as to whether or not we were going to win. So, I look back at all our time spent in Boston. We've had a lot of disappointments, but we've shared a lot of thrills. And a...

Mashup: Paterno's family denies coverup

Former FBI director Louis Freeh announced that he would release his findings on the Penn State scandal Thursday morning, but after reports indicated Joe Paterno's legacy will be further tarnished, the late coach's family decided to make a preemptive strike. The family released a statement Tuesday insisting that the longtime Penn State coach "did not cover up for Jerry Sandusky."

"Joe Paterno did not know that Jerry Sandusky was a pedophile," the statement read. "Joe Paterno did not act in any way to prevent a proper investigation of Jerry Sandusky. To claim otherwise is a distortion of the truth."

Before he died in January, Paterno supported the trustees' decision to have Freeh conduct a thorough investigation, but the family -- which was denied the opportunity to see the report ahead of its release -- said it now has concerns about the fairness and confidentiality of Freeh's work.

"It is our firm belief...

Giants' Cabrera MVP as NL rolls past AL
By: WEEI

Giants players Melky Cabrera and Pablo Sandoval sparked a five-run first inning off Tigers ace Justin Verlander, and the National League cruised to an 8-0 victory over the American League in Tuesday night's All-Star Game in Kansas City.

Cabrera, who played for the hometown Royals last season, was named MVP after hitting a single and two-run home run in three at-bats. Sandoval hit a bases-loaded triple in the first.

"I didn't come to win an MVP. That's just a surprise," Cabrera said. "The same opportunity that Kansas City gave me last year is the same opportunity that San Francisco is giving me every day to showcase my talent. Again, I'm just very thankful for the fans that voted for me to come here."

Giants pitcher Matt Cain, who allowed one hit in two innings, was the winner as the NL won for the third time in a row, giving the NL representative home-field advantage in the World Series.

Ortiz on DL returnees: 'We need the help'

KANSAS CITY -- David Ortiz went 1-for-2 with a warning track fly out to left against Giants right-hander Matt Cain in the second inning and then a single to left in the fifth inning against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw before being replaced by Royals DH Billy Butler. The lone Red Sox representative on the American League squad (which lost to the NL, 8-0) expressed enthusiasm for the opportunity to take part in his eighth All-Star Game.

"It's always a blessing to be part of the All-Star Game," said Ortiz. "Having to come out is something that will never get old. you know what I'm saying? It's something I look forward to."

That said, Ortiz had announced (via twitter) prior to the game that he planned on getting one at-bat and then turning over DH duties to Butler. He was overruled in that ambition by AL manager Ron Washington.

"Some things happened and Washington wanted me to get another at-bat and I just went and...
