Loretta retires, joins Padres

Former Red Sox second baseman Mark Loretta announced his retirement and will serve as a special assistant to the San Diego Padres' baseball operations staff. Loretta played for the Sox during the 2006 season, participating in 155 games and hitting .285, making the American League All-Star team. The 38-year-old finished his 15-year major league career with the Dodgers, appearing in 107 games for Los Angeles in the 2009 season. Loretta had wanted to return to the Red Sox following the '06 season, offering to take a one-year, $1 million deal from the team, but the Sox had committed to integrating Dustin Pedroia into the starting lineup. His last hit was a pinch-hit, walk-off single that won Game 2 of the Dodgers' National League Division Series over the Cardinals.

Report: Pees headed to Ravens

According to a report from profootballtalk.com, former Patriots defensive coordinator Dean Pees will become the new linebackers coach in Baltimore.

The Patriots have not announced a replacement for Pees. For more Patriots updates, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.

Wilfork: I want Pepper as DC

Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork said he wants defensive line coach Pepper Johnson to become the teams' next defensive coordinator. In an interview with ESPNBoston.com, Wilfork said Johnson should be the one to succeed former defensive coordinator Dean Pees. "Playing under him, I want to see him as coordinator, I think he deserves it," Wilfork said. "He has all the tools to be one." Johnson and linebackers coach Matt Patricia — who has gotten similar support from some of the New England linebackers — figure to be the top two in-house candidates to replace Pees, whose contract ended at the end of the 2009 season.

Savard back in line at B's practice

WILMINGTON -- Injured Bruins center Marc Savard participated in his first full "hard" practice Monday at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington since sustaining a non-partial MCL tear in his knee earlier this month. Savard skated with wingmen Miroslav Satan and Daniel Paille. He said that he is feeling good and is on track to play in Boston's next game on Friday in Buffalo. "It was a good test for it, got a little tired towards the end but other that that, it felt strong," Savard said. "Did everything, did the battle drills toward the end, felt good skating, hands felt good. Hopefully this time around I can be more of a presence when I get back." For more Bruins news, make sure to check out the Big Bad Blog.

Julien: Bruins haven't delivered

Bruins coach Claude Julien was quick to acknowledge Monday that Bruins fans have a right to be frustrated with the team’s performance. 

 

“Our fans are disappointed in us and rightfully so, we haven’t delivered," Julien said after the team's practice.

 

The Bruins have lost five straight games (0-4-1) while falling out of a playoff position.

 

Our fans and everybody deserves better than what we have been getting," Julien added. "Somehow we have to find that game of ours that will give everybody what they want to see. We have to work our way out of it and that’s hopefully what we started to do today.”
