Hollins en route to Boston, close to deal

Recently waived center Ryan Hollins is on his way to Boston with the expectation that he will sign with the Celtics, per a league source. If Hollins passes his physical and signs, he could be ready to meet the team on Friday when they play the 76ers. Team president Danny Ainge essentially confirmed that during an interview with The Big Show on Thursday.

"We’re talking to Ryan right now, trying to get Ryan in," Ainge said. "Ryan had a chance to workout this summer with Paul [Pierce]and [Kevin Garnett]. Ryan was highly recommended by them during the offseason. He was under contract with Cleveland but he was a guy that they respect and a guy they like and they think he would be a good fit with our team."

The six-year veteran has spent the last season and a half with the Cavaliers. He averaged five points and three rebounds in 70 games in 2010-11, but recently lost his rotation spot to rookie Tristan Thompson. The 7-footer...

King: Tebow/Sanchez could be 'huge mess'

Peter King of NBC and Sports Illustrated was a guest of the Mut & Merloni show on Thursday afternoon. King was first asked about Wednesday's deal that sent Tim Tebow from Denver to the Jets and what that means for both Tebow and Mark Sanchez.

"I didn't think there was any way they would mess with Sanchez's psyche," King said. "Obviously they did. I think the other thing that happens here is that Rex Ryan is a risk taker, he always has been and always will be. So you look at that and it does make some sense. Where it doesn't make any sense is, to me, you're messing and playing mind games with your quarterback's head and it leads me to believe they really are questioning the future of Mark Sanchez. ... I think it has a chance to be a huge mess, and there's going to be pressure on Sanchez right away to play well. And if he doesn't, people are going to be screaming for Tebow."

The other blockbuster story from Wednesday was the...

Bard on M&M: I'm still a starter

Daniel Bard was a guest of the Mut & Merloni show on Thursday afternoon. Bard has been expected by many if not most to be the fourth starter for the Red Sox in 2012, but a report on CSNNE.com Wednesday suggested that members of the Sox organization believe that Bard -- who has appeared in 192 major-league games, all in relief - will return to the bullpen and Alfredo Aceves and Felix Doubront will take the fourth and fifth spots in the rotation. Bard was asked for his thoughts on the report.

"You know, it's hard to even talk about right now, give that my mind is still fully on starting," said Bard. "It's not just a good mindset to be in. If it does come to a case where I need to go back to the bullpen, I accept it for what it is, make the most of it and try and help the team that way. But right now I'm still a starter in my own eyes and let everyone else make their own decisions." 

Bard has walked seven batters and...

Red Sox farm system ranked ninth

In its 2012 organizational rankings of prospect-eligible players (no more than 130 at-bats, 50 innings or 30 relief appearances in the big leagues), Baseball America tabbed the Red Sox farm system as the ninth best among the 30 major league teams. That is up from the No. 17 overall rating a year ago.

The publication cited the Sox' potential high-impact position players such as third baseman Will Middlebrooks, shortstop Xander Bogaerts and catcher Blake Swihart in that assessment, though it also noted that the new Collective Bargaining Agreement -- which will attempt to restrict draft spending -- will impact the Sox more than any other club, given that the Sox' $44.1 million investment in draft picks (including many signings that went well beyond the slot recommendations) were the most of any large-revenue club.

As for prospects who might be able to impact the big league club in 2012, the publication cited shortstop Jose Iglesias, catcher Ryan...
