Garnett fined $25,000 for skipping media

Kevin Garnett was fined $25,000 for not making himself available to the media after the Celtics' Game 7 loss to the Heat. Garnett's contract expires on June 30 and he can become a free agent. His silence has fueled speculation that he may retire, but it's worth pointing out that he also skipped talking to the media after the Celtics were eliminated in 2011 and he didn't make himself available at all after he was injured in 2009.

Bobby V on Youk: 'Not an easy situation'

With trade rumors swirling around Kevin Youkilis, Sox manager Bobby Valentine told WEEI's The Big Show that he had a recent conversation with the third baseman about it.

"Kevin and I basically talked about that yesterday and it's not an easy situation," Valentine said. "It is part of the baseball world. Every team every year basically every month of the season have some designated person where trade rumors swirl around and I feel for Kevin to have to be distracted by them. I feel for him to have to answer questions that no one is able to answer. Whether he's affected by them when he goes out on the field I really couldn't tell you, but I can tell you that his effort and his preparation and his desire is there every second of the day."

Valentine said that it was a "juggling act" to find spots for Youkilis, Adrian Gonzalez, David Ortiz and Will Middlebrooks, but the players have handled it well. 

"If you...

Olney on M&M: Sox shouldn't blow it up

Appearing on Mut & Merloni on Wednesday afternoon, ESPN's baseball analyst Buster Olney voiced disapproval with manager Bobby Valentine's tirade about umpires.

"That's not necessarily a place where I would go and I think a lot of mangers would not want to go there," Olney said. "I was surprised that he did go there because of the fear that people have that there's going to be some kind of retribution at some point. Also, given the dynamics we've seen in baseball, there really is not a central authority in baseball [like what] we've seen in the NFL, where if a referee has a bad Sunday he's out on Monday. That's just the way it works in that league. In baseball, it doesn't work that way. You're not going to get change by talking to reporters. Either change is going to happen over years -- Larry Lucchino said to me baseball moves like a dreadnought, one of those giant warships that takes a long time to turn. That's why I don't...

Belichick on Ballard claim: 'No unwrittens'

FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick was asked several pointed questions before Wednesday's minicamp practice about the Patriots claim Tuesday of former Giants tight end Jake Ballard, who caught the game-winning catch against the Patriots at Gillette Stadium in early November. Ballard had to have surgery after tearing his ACL and suffering a microfracture injury in the Super Bowl XLVI win over the Patriots. 

Belichick was asked if there was any "unwritten rules" for claiming another player that was placed on waivers while rehabbing an injury. 

“There are no unwrittens.” Belichick said when asked about unspoken agreements between teams. “You can’t negotiate a contract with a player while he’s under contract. You can't negotiate a contract, release him then renegotiate another contract with him that was already done in advance. I'm sure the Giants weren't doing that. [When] a player is on waivers, he’s on...

Remy: 'I've had enough' of Sox ripping umps

Appearing on Dennis & Callahan Wednesday morning, NESN Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy said the constant arguing with the umpires is just one of a few things negatively affecting the Red Sox at this point in the season.

"It's gotten way out of hand and I think it eventually hurts you," Remy said. "You're going to have individual battles with umpires in a game, that's commonplace, that happens all the time. But to come out and just completely rip them all and have this constant battle going on, I mean, look, these guys are human, too. They read the same things that we read and they hear the same things we hear. I don't know how close calls can go either way when you're out there publicly ripping an umpire.

"Quite frankly, I've had enough of it and I think it doesn't suit the team well at all to continue ripping umpires because it's not going to help you. I know that they're professionals, they're...
