NU coach joining Maple Leafs as assistant

Greg Cronin has stepped down as the men’s hockey coach at Northeastern to become an assistant coach with the Maple Leafs.

“I want to thank Greg for the incredible work he has done on behalf of this university and our student-athletes,” Northeastern athletic director Peter Roby said in a statement issued by the school. “Greg has been a tireless worker, both on and off the ice. He has taken our hockey program to new heights. He’s advanced our relationships with alumni and friends of the program. And he’s helped reshape our arena into one of the finest hockey venues in the nation.”

In six seasons at Northeastern, Cronin had a record of 84-104-29.

NFL owners, players to meet in Boston area

NFL owners and players reportedly will meet on Wednesday and Thursday in a suburb of Boston in the latest attempt to bring an end to the lockout.

The two sides, led by commissioner Roger Goodell and NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith, are hoping to continue the reported momentum that has been generated over the last two weeks, momentum that has sparked cautious optimism that a deal between the two sides could be reached sooner rather than later.

In a brief session with reporters on Tuesday, Goodell acknowledged the "urgency" of the situation if the two sides do indeed want the preseason to begin on time, saying: "Time is moving quickly, and we are fast approaching the training camp period." Patriots owner Robert Kraft spoke briefly with reporters on his way out of the meeting, saying: "It's good that things are moving in the right direction. We've got a lot of hard work to do."

The work stoppage, which reached 101 days...

Beckett moved back to Saturday

After a bout with "intestinal turmoil," Josh Beckett's next start will come Saturday against the Pirates in Pittsburgh, Red Sox manager Terry Francona announced before Tuesday's game against the Padres at Fenway. Alfredo Aceves was assigned with taking Beckett's place in the rotation Tuesday. 

"He actually looks just OK," Francona said of Beckett. "l'm glad we [pushed him back]. I think it was neccessary what we did. He didn't look that good. What we're hoping for, tentatively, is he'll pitch Saturday. Because of some of the versatility of guys like Aceves, adding [Andrew] Miller and [Tim Wakefield], we can get around it, especially with an off day.

"What we'll do is probably pitch him Saturday. That will allow him to have a side day and have a relatively normal week as opposed to just the first day he feels good, get him out there and pitch. Let him get his legs back under him and stuff like that."...

Reddick, Drew in lineup vs. Padres

The Red Sox are turning over their outfield corners. One day after Darnell McDonald started in left and Mike Cameron in right against left-hander Wade LeBlanc, the team will feature left-handed hitters Josh Reddick in left and J.D. Drew in right against Padres starter Mat Latos. Jarrod Saltalamacchia will be behind the plate to catch Alfredo Aceves, who was pressed into duty when Josh Beckett was scratched due to illness.

There is almost no matchup history for the two teams against the respective starters. Jason Bartlett is 0-for-3 with a walk against Aceves; no Red Sox hitter has faced Latos. For complete Red Sox coverage, visit weei.com/redsox.

Tito on Big Show: Unsure about A-Gon in OF

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said on his weekly appearance on The Big Show that he was unsure about whether to use first baseman Adrian Gonzalez in the outfield when the Sox play nine straight games in National League parks beginning Friday in Pittsburgh. There won't be a designated hitter in those parks, and Gonzalez has said he would be willing to play right field to keep David Ortiz in the lineup.

"David is certainly not going to play nine games," Francona said. "Gonzie has talked to us and we've gone back and forth with him about possibly going to right field. I don't know how I feel about that. I'm a little bit confused. If we ever send him out there and something bad happens -- and by that I don't mean making a bad play. Do you move J.D. [Drew] to left field for a couple of days? He's never done that. I don't know. That's the best answer I can give you. We have a day off before we go to Pittsburgh. There's a lot of things we need to...
