Ainge on KG: 'He is healthier'

Celtics boss Danny Ainge, making his weekly appearance on The Big Show, talked about Kevin Garnett's health, Rasheed Wallace's technical foul issues and the NBA referee scandal. Glenn Ordway asked Ainge about Garnett's recent stretch of great play, and Ainge said, "He is healthier." Ainge said that Garnett "still has some soreness," but the C's president is proud of how hard Garnett has worked to get to where he is today. As for Wallace's recent technical foul issues, when asked if it was something that his teamates should address instead of management, Ainge responded, "It's always better that way."

Taylor keeps 'an open mind' on Pats

FOXBORO -- Miami Dolphins star linebacker Jason Taylor said he would consider the possibility of joining the Patriots for the 2010 season after his contract with the Dolphins ends after this season. "We'll see what happens at end of the year," Taylor said in a conference call with New England media on Wednesday. "We'll re-evaluate and keep an open mind." Taylor said he has always been very appreciative of the praise from Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. The 7-4 Patriots play Taylor and the 5-6 Dolphins in South Florida on Sunday afternoon. For more, visit the football blog It Is What It Is.

McLeod on Pedroia at SS: 'I would not doubt him one bit'

On Tuesday, ESPN.com reported that Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has been approached by the Red Sox about whether he would be willing to play shortstop in 2010, moving from a position where he has won a Gold Glove. Pedroia, who was named NCAA Defensive Player of the Year as a shortstop in 2003, welcomed the move.

 

Red Sox Amateur Scouting Director Jason McLeod, who scouted Pedroia extensively at Arizona State, believes that Pedroia could handle the position. While McLeod had questions about whether Pedroia had the athleticism and range to handle shortstop as an amateur and during his minor-league career, the player's improvements in speed and conditioning since coming to the majors have left McLeod -- who was the Sox' Director of Scouting Administration when the team took Pedroia with its top pick (2nd round, 65th overall) of the 2004 draft -- convinced that he is equipped to handle the position.

Red Sox contact DeRosa, Kennedy

The Red Sox have been active in exploring possible ways to fill out their infield, reaching out to a number of free agents to express varying degrees of interest. A pair of versatile players -- Mark DeRosa and Adam Kennedy -- have been among the group of players whom the Sox have contacted about coming to Boston.

 

DeRosa has been a starting second baseman in the past, but spent almost all of last year as a corner infielder and outfielder. Kennedy had been primarily a second baseman throughout his career, though he started 82 games at third base for the A's last year and 50 at second base. Still, he would be a possibility at second base if the Sox moved Dustin Pedroia to shortstop.

 

The Boston Herald (which first reported on the Sox' contact with Kennedy) has also reported that...
