Pioli/Dimitroff: This is the Belichick we know
By: DJ Bean

Former Patriots executives Scott Pioli and Thomas Dimitroff, now general managers of the Chiefs and Falcons, respectively, joined The Big Show in Indianapolis Thursday. The two discussed their days with the Patriots and what they hope to achieve with their current franchises. 

Bill Belichick has been more friendly with the media since arriving in Indianapolis for the Super Bowl, to the surprise of many. Neither Pioli nor Dimitroff are surprised to see this side of him.

"Bill and I worked together for 16 years, and I've known him since 1987," Pioli said. "That's the Bill I know. Maybe it's not shown that often publicly." 

Dimitroff said that neither he nor the city of Atlanta are strangers to Belichick's perky persona.

"What I know of Bill is last year he came on one of our local radio stations and was waxing poetic about the Grateful Dead and Bon Jovi, and we had a half-hour talk," Dimitroff...

Reports: Nationals sign Edwin Jackson

For the second time this offseason, the Nationals appear to be close to reaching a deal with a starter whom the Red Sox also pursued.

According to multiple reports, Washington has agreed to a one-year deal with right-hander Edwin Jackson. News of the agreement was first reported by Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com; Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com reported that the deal was for roughly $10 million.

The Red Sox had explored the possibility of signing the 28-year-old, who was 12-9 with a 3.79 ERA in 199 2/3 innings (31 starts), striking out 148 and walking 62 in 2011, a season in which he was traded from the White Sox to a Cardinals team that ended up winning the World Series. However, the Sox showed little inclination to enter a bidding war for Jackson, and on Wednesday night, Sox GM Ben Cherington said that he considered it "unlikely" that the Red Sox would sign a significant starter before the start of spring training.

Source: Padilla expected to camp on time

According to an industry source, the Red Sox are looking into the legal issues facing Vicente Padilla in Nicaragua, but the reported order preventing the pitcher from traveling out of his native country is not expected to delay his arrival to spring training. 

According to La Prensa newspaper in Nicaragua, Padilla -- who signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox earlier this month -- had an arrest warrant issued for his failure to show up in court for a child support hearing, only to have the arrest order revoked later. That second article suggests that Padilla is facing an order not to leave Nicaragua for spring training until the matter is resolved. According to the reports, Padilla owes approximately US$4,200 in child support.

The Red Sox signed Padilla to a minor league deal...

Horton (concussion) still not progressing
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien said after the team's morning skate Thursday that forward Nathan Horton has not progressed this week in his recovery from his latest concussion, and still is not riding the stationary bike.

"He's still where he was a few days ago," Julien said. "Feeling better, but not well enough right now to get to that stage of working out."

Horton suffered the injury on Jan. 22, when he was hit by Flyers forward Tom Sestito. The play was not reviewed by the league, and Sestito was not fined or suspended for the hit.

The concussion is Horton's second since June. Horton was famously blindsided by Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome in the first period of Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals last season. He missed the rest of the postseason with the concussion.
