Red Sox invite Theo to game, not ceremony

According to a team source, former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein has been invited to attend Friday's game, in which the Fenway Park is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Epstein was not, however, extended an invitation to participate in the pre-game ceremony, which was designated for uniformed personnel only. It is believed the invitation to attend the game was delivered via phone call.

According to another source, the invitation for Epstein to attend the game wasn't extended until Thursday afternoon.

Earlier Thursday, CSNNE.com reported that Epstein was not invited to Fenway Park for the celebration of the ballpark's centennial, with Red Sox principal owner John Henry expressing surprise that Epstein was not being invited back, something of which he was not aware until contacted by the website.

Allen, Pietrus, Rondo not making C's trip

The Celtics announced via Twitter that Ray Allen, Mickael Pietrus and Rajon Rondo will not travel to Atlanta on the team flight Thursday.

After all three missed Wednesday's 102-98 victory against the Magic, it appears the trio will skip Friday's important showdown as well. While the Celtics (37-26) clinched the Atlantic Division title and thus the Eastern Conference's fourth seed, they still trail the current fifth-seeded Hawks (37-25) by a game in the loss column for home court in their potential first-round playoff matchup. With four games to play, Orlando (36-26) also has an oustide shot at the No. 5 spot.

Barring an unforeseen private plane trip to the ATL, Rondo will miss his second straight game after landing on his tailbone against the Knicks on Tuesday night. Meanwhile, Allen (ankle) would miss his seventh consecutive game -- and 13th in his last 18 -- while Pietrus (knee) would miss a third straight, just four games after missing...

Solder stands ready if Light does retire

FOXBORO -- Asked Thursday if he sees his role potentially changing if veteran Matt Light does decide to retire, Nate Solder said he’s ready for pretty much anything.

“I don’t know what my role is going to be,” Solder said when asked about Light and his future. “Right now, my mindset is to get better. There’s a lot I have to improve on, and that’s what I’m going to work on right now and improve on.”

Solder, who played 1,044 offensive snaps last season (according to Pro Football Focus, tops among any of New England’s rookies), played both right and left tackle last season. During the regular season, he started 11 games at right tackle and two at left tackle, and registered three more starts at right tackle in the postseason.

Because of that experience, Solder figures to have more on his plate going forward if Light does decide to retire. On Thursday during a break...

Doc on D&C: Pierce to Nets wasn't close

Celtics coach Doc Rivers, in his weekly interview on WEEI's Dennis & Callahan Show, discussed the flurry of Celtics activity at the trade deadline, in which the team came close to deals that would have broken up the Big Three of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett before ultimately keeping that group together (along with Rajon Rondo).

Allen was the closest to going, as the Celtics nearly had a deal that would have sent the shooting guard to the Memphis Grizzlies for O.J. Mayo and a draft pick. It had reached the point where GM Danny Ainge -- not Rivers -- called Allen to inform him that the deal was almost certainly going down, before an 11th hour change of course.

"Usually that's my job [to call a player before he is traded], and I was instructed to, but I never did. Danny did, or talked to him. But no, I didn't have to do that," said Rivers. "The best news was talking to him that we're not doing anything, when he...

Mashup: Bobcats' Silas confronts player

According to a report from Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, Bobcats coach Paul Silas shoved forward Tyrus Thomas after a postgame screaming match Sunday night, sparked by Thomas' friendly chatter with Celtics players.

Silas, the 68-year-old former Celtic, reportedly chastised Thomas for his fraternization with the C's, and Thomas yelled back at Silas. When Thomas stood up, Silas pushed him toward his locker before players stepped in to break up the altercation.

“Silas hates losing to the Celtics, and Paul was even angrier that he thought [Thomas] was acting buddy-buddy with some of their guys,” a source told Yahoo! “That’s what got it going. But Paul was yelling at him over his salary, over what they have left to pay him. But it started with him saying, hey, he could live with the losing, but you’re going to be buddy-buddy as they’re beating your [butt] too?”

Both men reportedly were fined by the...
