Mashup: Ex-Celtic Robinson to Seahawks?

Former Celtics guard Nate Robinson, who played a year of football at the University of Washington before deciding to focus on basketball, might get another shot on the gridiron during the NBA lockout. On Tuesday, Robinson traded tweets with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, who had tried to recruit Robinson to USC a decade ago. Robinson, now with the Thunder, wrote to Carroll: give me a chance and I'll prove it to you. The exchange ended with Carroll writing: see you at practice at 1:30. bring your cleats. Robinson did not show up at the afternoon session, but Carroll left the door open, telling the assembled media: "He may be a little distracted with basketball, I don't know. If he is, he probably won't be able to do it. But if he can get focused, there's always a chance."

Ellsbury's walk-off hit leads Sox past Indians

With one out in the ninth inning, a Jacoby Ellsbury single plated pinch-runner Jarrod Saltalamacchia with the game-winning run, giving the Red Sox a 3-2 win over the Indians Tuesday night at Fenway Park. Saltamacchia had entered the game for Jason Varitek, who singled to lead off the frame.

The hit, which resulted with a close play at the plate and was the sixth walk-off hit of the season for the Sox, punctuated a fine pitching performance by Josh Beckett, Franklin Morales and Jonathan Papelbon. The trio didn't walk a single batter while not giving up a run after the fourth inning.

Beckett received his eighth no-decision of the season, allowing two runs over six innings. The outing -- in which the righty struck out seven while not walking a batter -- was limited to just 85 pitches (60 strikes) due to the wait during a rain delay of one hour, 35 minutes. He had initially warmed up for the start 1 1/2 hours prior to the actual start time. ...

Gill: 'Absolutely a chance' Buchholz returns

Early Tuesday night at Fenway Park, Red Sox team medical director Dr. Thomas Gill addressed the prognosis of Clay Buchholz, who has been diagnosed with a stress fracture of the L2 vertebrae and is questionable to return for this season.

Regarding whether or not Buchholz could be available for either the end of the regular season or the postseason, Gill reiterated what Red Sox manager Terry Francona said earlier Tuesday, suggesting a return was a possibility.

"I think there's absolutely a chance, I just don't know how big that chance is," Gill said. "I think there's a great chance he would be healed by then, or the fracture would be stable by then. The question is how much time does Clay need to get major league ready."

Buchholz will be forced to pass five stages before being cleared to pitch again, a process that typically takes 4-6 weeks (although Gill noted there "hasn't been a reported [injured] L2 in a baseball...

Report: Patriots work out Roth
By: DJ Bean

According to a tweet from John Clayton of ESPN, the Patriots held a workout with former Browns linebacker Matt Roth on Tuesday.

Roth, 28, was selected by the Dolphins in the second round of the 2005 draft. He played the majority of the last two seasons in Cleveland after being claimed off waivers in November of 2009. He had 3.5 sacks last year for the Browns after having four and five in 2010 and 2009, respectively. 

The Patriots released outside linebacker Tully Banta-Cain last week, creating more of a need for a pass-rusher. Banta-Cain had five sacks last season, second to Mike Wright's 5.5 for the team lead.

Haynesworth: 'I've always liked' Belichick
By: DJ Bean

Patriots defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth said Tuesday that he hopes he can "restore" his name in New England after two tumultuous years as a member of the Redskins. 

Haynesworth was traded to the Pats last week in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2013 draft. He hopes that things will be better in New England.

“I’ve always liked coach Belichick, the way he did things, the way the team performed," Haynesworth said. "I’ve came to games when I was in the pros. I came to, I was here when they played the AFC championship, I want to say they were playing I think San Diego, and I was sitting up in the stands freezing my butt off, I sat there and watched them play. I’ve always been a fan of this team.”

Haynesworth noted that he will play any position asked of him. He will likely play alongside Vince Wilfork in the 4-3.

“I went to the Pro Bowl with Vince, and the funny thing...
