Mashup: Pujols unhappy with Angels' promo

New Angels slugger Albert Pujols is not pleased with the team's marketing campaign. The club unveiled 20 billboards around Southern California that picture Pujols with the words "El Hombre" -- Spanish for "The Man." Out of respect for Cardinals legend Stan "The Man" Musial, Pujols has said he does not want to use the nickname.

"I haven't talked to them, but I prefer not to use [El Hombre]," Pujols said Wednesday from spring training in Tempe, Ariz.

"I still have the same respect for him as I had, not just for what he's done in baseball but for what he did for his country," Pujols said of Musial, a World War II Navy veteran. "That's something you have to appreciate."

The Angels played down the billboards as just one part of their marketing campaign but gave no indication that they plan to alter them.

Marchand, Thomas let B's shake off Blues
By: DJ Bean

Though they were outshot 32-19, the Bruins made the most of their opportunities against St. Louis, with Brad Marchand scoring twice to lead the Bruins past the Blues, 4-2.

With his two goals, Marchand matched his season total of 21 from a year ago and the 23-year-old set a new career high in points with 42, one more than he scored as a rookie last year. His gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead just 2:29 into the first period, then finished the scoring with another goal at 9:14 of the third period. In between his two goals, Milan Lucic and Chris Kelly also put the puck past Blues netminder Brian Elliott, who stopped just 15 of the 19 shots he faced.

Tim Thomas, meanwhile, turned aside 30 of 32 shots he faced. In the process, he helped the Bruins improve to 4-6-0 this month. The B's have scored exactly four goals in each of their wins this month.

The win broke a two-game losing streak for the Bruins. The B's will next play on Friday, when they face...

Marchand, Bruins beat Blues
By: DJ Bean

The struggling Bruins got a much-needed win as they beat the Blues, 4-2, Wednesday night in St. Louis. 

Brad Marchand had two goals for the B's, scoring 2:29 into the first period and adding his 21st goal of the season in the third period. Milan Lucic and Chris Kelly also scored for the Bruins. Marchand, Lucic and Kelly all had multi-point nights. 

Tim Thomas picked up the victory for the Bruins, making 29 saves and surrendering goals to Chris Stewart and Ryan Reaves. The win broke a two-game losing streak for the Bruins. 

The B's will  next play on Friday, when they face the Sabres at First Niagara Center. The last time the two teams played, the Sabres handed the B's a 6-0 loss on Feb. 8.

C's comeback falls short against OKC

The Celtics nearly came all the way back from a 23-point halftime deficit, but fell just short Wednesday night against the Thunder in Oklahoma City, dropping a 119-104 decision. It was the seventh loss in the last eight games for Boston, which got 23 points and 13 rebounds from Kevin Garnett in the defeat.

The Celtics, playing without point guard Rajon Rondo (serving the second game of a two-game suspension for throwing a ball at a referee) bolted to a quick 10-point lead, but an astonishing 30-2 run by the Thunder allowed them to seize a 42-25 second-quarter lead and a 72-49 advantage into the half. Boston cut into the lead throughout the third and into the fourth quarter, getting the deficit down to as much as six when Paul Pierce hit a free throw with 3:31 left to make it 108-102.

But that would be as close the the Celtics would get, as the Thunder pulled away down the stretch to secure their sixth win in the last seven games....

Patriots release Wright, Ohrnberger
By: DJ Bean

The Patriots announced Wednesday that they have released offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger and defensive tackle Mike Wright.

The Pats signed Wright out of Cincinnati after he went undrafted in 2005. He was with the Patriots for seven seasons, but played in only one game last season before being placed on injured reserve with his latest concussion. 

Ohrnberger was drafted in the fourth round of the 2009 draft. Though he became popular for his twitter account leading up to the Super Bowl, he played in only five games over his three seasons in New England.
