Lester turns in dominant performance

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Making his sixth spring training outing, Jon Lester dominated the Phillies Monday afternoon in the Red Sox' 6-0 win at Bright House Field.

Lester allowed just two hits and no runs over seven innings, striking out 10 and not walking a batter. He was followed up by scoreless innings from Matt Albers and Ross Ohlendorf.

"I think that speaks for itself. I don't have to describe it," said Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine. "That's what he was aiming to do. I don't know if he was thinking about throwing 90 pitches and striking 10, but that's pretty good."

"I felt pretty much the same as last time, I was just able to get the ball down in the zone a little bit more," Lester said. "Obviously when you're able to do that you're able to get better results than last time."

Lester, who attributed his strikeout total to keeping the ball down in the zone, only reached a three-ball count to one...

Report: Parcells approached about Saints job

Having served as an assistant under Bill Parcells from 2003-05 with the Cowboys, Sean Payton certainly owes a lot of debt and gratitude to his mentor for getting him to where he is today as the Saints head coach.

Now, Payton may again need Parcells' help, as ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that Payton and Parcells have discussed the possibility of Parcells being the Saints interim coach while Payton is suspended for the entire 2012 season.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced last Wednesday that Payton would be suspended for the season for his role in a bounty system employed by the Saints defense under former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams that provided incentives for injuring opposing players.

Payton was an assistant under Parcells for three seasons in Dallas and, according to Mortensen, Payton sought advice and guidance from his former boss on a regular basis since being hired by the Saints in 2006.

Valentine: There is no power struggle

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Prior to his team's spring training game against the Phillies Monday, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine called reports that he was engaged in a power struggle with general manager Ben Cherington "lazy journalism," and dismissed any notion that two were at odds.

"I think it's an easy story to write that has no validity," Valentine said.

When asked if he was aware of the reports, the manager said, "Absolutely. I could have written it on December 3. Are you kidding me?"

Valentine went on to say that he and Cherington talk "a few times" a day, and that his relationship with Cherington mirrored that of the one he shared with former Rangers general manager Tom Grieve, and perhaps the beginning of his tenure with the Mets with then-GM Steve Phillips.

"When Steve became general manager, we had both been in the organization about three years," remembered Valentine. "...

Tebow: 'Honored and humbled to be a Jet'

New Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow discussed his potential role with the team and his relationship with starting QB Mark Sanchez when he met the media for a 35-minute press conference Monday at team headquarters in Florham Park, N.J.

"I'm so honored and humbled to be a Jet and thankful they wanted me," Tebow said, adding: "I'm excited about being a Jet. This is where I want to be."

Tebow confirmed a report that Broncos management asked him his preference when considering offers from the Jets and Jaguars, and he said that he told Denver he would have been happy with either destination.

"I had a better relationship with the Jets coaches," he said, noting that he had not met the new Jaguars staff.

Added Tebow: "I've always had a great relationship with coach [Rex] Ryan."

Tebow said he's known Sanchez for about three years, and the two have texted each other during that time. During a...
