Report: Gonzalez seeks Teixeira cash

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, negotiations between the Padres and first baseman Adrian Gonzalez came to a halt almost as soon as they started when the player's agent, John Boggs, gave the team a sense of what his client was seeking.

 

"Boggs said his preliminary discussion with Padres general manager Jed Hoyer was so superficial that 'you couldn’t characterize it as a negotiation,' " according to the article. "Boggs said Hoyer inquired as to Gonzalez’s expectations; that Boggs cited the eight-year, $180 million deal of New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, and that that comment effectively ended Hoyer’s exploration."

 

The two-time All-Star is under contract to the Padres this year for $4.75 million, and San Diego has a $5.5 million option on his services for the...

No home breakthrough: B's lose

The Olympic break, a stunning gold medal game at the Olympics and a 1-0 lead after two periods did nothing to change the Bruins' luck at home, as they dropped their 10th straight on TD Garden ice, a 4-1 decision at the hands of archrival Montreal Tuesday night. The 10-game streak is one shy of the club mark set in the 1924-25 season. Marco Sturm fell down and one-handed a loose puck past Carey Price on the power play for a 1-0 Bruins lead in the first. With the B's leading by a goal entering the final period, former Bruin Glen Metropolit tied the game 2:40 into the third and Maxim Lapierre scored the go-ahead tally with 12-1/2 minutes remaining.

Scott: AD wants to be a Jet

Jets linebacker Bart Scott told ESPN Radio's "Mike & Mike" Tuesday morning that Patriots linebacker Adalius Thomas has already talked about rejoining his former defensive coordinator, Rex Ryan, with the Jets. Thomas — who is expected to be released by New England — spent seven seasons in Baltimore where he was a two-time Pro Bowler before signing with the Patriots prior to the start of the 2007 season.

"It's funny," said Scott, who played seven seasons in Baltimore before following Ryan to the Jets a year ago. "I was hanging with Adalius Thomas for Super Bowl weekend. We're buddies from back in the day. He made it public that he's expressed in interest in joining Rex. I think some of his better years of his career have been a part of the Ravens' defense and under Rex Ryan's tutelage. It'll be exciting."
