Ainge: Health of O'Neals 'a concern'

Celtics executive president of basketball operations Danny Ainge, in his weekly appearance on The Big Show, said that the health of centers Shaquille O'Neal and Jermaine O'Neal had become something of a concern. Shaquille O'Neal has missed the last five games while recovering from a bruised right knee, while Jermaine O'Neal was sidelined in the second half of this week's contest against the Mavericks due to a left knee injury.


Shaq, Ainge said, is expected to return to the lineup against the Heat on Thursday. Jermaine O'Neal, on the other hand, is expected to remain sidelined. While Ainge did proclaim the health of the two centers a concern, he also said that it was not a complete surprise that the team is managing minutes at the position.


"I think that Jermaine and Shaq are a concern with their health," said Ainge. "I felt like with the four centers we have that we'd be able to make it through the year. I...

Report: Rangers sign Kevin Cash

According to the Baseball America transactions log, the Rangers signed catcher Kevin Cash. Cash, 32, spent the second half of this season with the Red Sox, who acquired him in exchange for Angel Sanchez from the Astros in the first week of July after both Victor Martinez and Jason Varitek landed on the disabled list with broken bones. In his second stint with the Sox, Cash appeared in 29 games, hitting .133/.224/.150/.374 in 68 plate appearances.


The catcher had been contemplating retirement after the season, but he apparently decided to delay such a move in order to sign with the defending AL champions.

Neely: Bruins 'prepared' to clear cap space

Bruins president Cam Neely, in an interview on The Big Show on Thursday, lauded his team's strong start, while noting that the team needs to continue working towards playing more consistent hockey. The Bruins have excelled in the third period this year, and the team is now working to figure out how to translate that excellence to the start of games.


Neely also said that the Bruins "have been preparing" to make the necessary moves to get under the salary cap when Marco Sturm and Marc Savard are ready to return from the long-term injured reserve. While the team must shed payroll, thus limiting the type of player whom it can get in return for whatever members of the roster it will deal, Neely said that the Bruins have been preparing to ensure that any deal does not jeopardize the club's Stanley Cup ambitions.


"We knew this was coming. We’ve prepared for this. We have been preparing for this," said...
