Buchholz goes three innings vs. Pirates

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz, in his second start of the the spring, threw 51 pitches (34 strikes) in three innings of work in which he showed some impressive changeups but also left some fastballs over the plate. Buchholz allowed two runs on three hits (two of which were struck by Pirates star Andrew McCutchen, who lined a single to right-center and launched a majestic double high off the higher-than-the-Green-Monster). He struck out one and hit a batter.

Buchholz threw a number of two-seam fastballs while mixing in his changeup and curveball at different intervals. While he is still working to build arm strength (his fastball remained in the low-90s) and sharpen his command, the Sox are pleased with his health in his return from last year's injury.

"His spring training has been going really well. Really good physical condition. His arm feels good," manager Bobby Valentine said before the game. "His back...

Wilcox, Pietrus out for Celtics

Mickael Pietrus (knee) and Chris Wilcox (personal reasons) are both out of the Celtics' lineup for their game against Portland on Friday. Celtics' coach Doc Rivers said he was hopeful both players would be back for the start of their eight-game road trip on Sunday against the Lakers. Pietrus has made just 3-of-17 3-pointers since the All-Star break. Rivers thinks that his struggles are all related to his health.

"I don’t think it’s any deeper than that," Rivers said. "We’re just going to sit [Pietrus] out tonight and hope he plays Sunday. It just keeps flaring up, so who knows?" 

Pietrus' knee bothered him before the Philadelphia game on Wednesday, but he decided to play through it. The Celtics lost by 32 and Pietrus attempted just one shot in 13 minutes.

"If we could get the game back, especially the way it turned out, it would have been nice to not have played him," Rivers said....

Andrew Bailey: No need to compare fans

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- A day after Jonathan Papelbon told a Philadelphia sports talk radio station that Philly fans "know the game better" than Boston fans, Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey -- a lifelong fans of all Philadelphia sports, having grown up 10 minutes from the ballpark -- said he wouldn't distinguish between the two.

"There's no reason to cause drama, from my perspective," Bailey said. "Your fans are the ones who go out and support you. For me, I love them all. It's going to be fun playing in front of a packed house, for sure. Even in Oakland, the fans are great out there. The situation with the stadium and stuff are a little different. The fans that come to the game are baseball fans. Coming here it wasn't a big deal for me because we have one common goal, everybody loves the game of baseball  and it's the same thing with the fans. To say one fan base is better than the other, I've never really seen that. But it's...

Amaker on M&M: 'Special year' for Harvard

Three days after Harvard clinched its first-ever Ivy League title and its first NCAA tournament berth since 1946, Crimson coach Tommy Amaker joined the Mut & Merloni show to talk about March Madness and Linsanity.

Last season, Harvard's NCAA hopes ended with a last-second loss to Princeton in a one-game playoff. This season, the Crimson entered the season with high expectations and lived up to them.

"We were predicted to be in this position. That's what made it pretty special for us," Amaker said. "When you're thought of as being that kind of team at the very beginning and we're able to live up that throughout the whole season with added pressures and opportunities and ranking and Battle For Atlantis championship, different things that kind of came our way, made it a really special year. And I think it made our kids incredibly satisfied with the work that they put in."

Harvard is being speculated as a 10 or 11 seed,...
