B's rest, recover in LA

El SEGUNDO, Calif. - A weary Bruins squad caught up on some much needed rest Friday after a hard-fought 2-1 shootout win in San Jose Thursday. A handful of players did receive treatment and skate at the Kings practice facility. Defenseman Mark Stuart remains hopeful to return to the lineup against the Kings Saturday after missing a month with a broken sternum. Center David Krejci remains day-to-day with an undisclosed injury suffered Wednesday in Anaheim. Fellow center Patrice Bergeron will not play Saturday, but he is making a steady recovery after breaking his thumb Jan. 4 in New York. Bergeron was set to be sidelined two weeks, and could be ready when the B’s return home to host Ottawa Monday afternoon. “It’s looking good, it’s coming along a day at a time,”said Bergeron who is now able to work with the...

Moss will miss Pro Bowl

It was announced Friday morning that Patriots receiver Randy Moss will not be going to this year’s Pro Bowl. The report, which came in conjunction with the fact that Cincinnati wide receiver Chad Ochocinco was named to the AFC squad, stated that Moss would not be going because of “injury.”

It’s not sure how much of that move is precautionary measure — it wouldn’t be the first time a player has backed out of the Pro Bowl because he did not want to run the risk of making some minor bumps or bruises worse in a meaningless game — and how much it might be related to a more substantial injury concern. Moss was listed on the injury report earlier in 2009 with a back problem, and confessed to the Boston Herald had bothered him.

Regardless, the fact that Moss and teammate Wes Welker will not be going to the Pro Bowl opened a spot for the irascible Ochocinco, who is happy about the decision.

Sox sign 7 to minor league deals

The Red Sox announced the signing of seven players to minor-league contracts. All seven have been placed on the Pawtucket roster and received invitations to big-league spring training.

 

The most recognizable player is left-handed specialist Brian Shouse, who had a 4.50 ERA for the Tampa Bay Rays. He pitched briefly for the Red Sox in 1998.

 

The group includes a pair of players who also spent last season in the Sox organization: right-hander Fernando Cabrera and shortstop Gil Velazquez (who was also with the club in 2008). Other players brought in are right-handers Jorge Sosa and Edwin Moreno, outfielder Darnell McDonald and infielder Angel Sanchez.

Sox' Lin fulfills military obligation

Red Sox outfield prospect Che-Hsuan Lin fulfilled his Taiwanese military requirement in December, according to farm director Mike Hazen. While Taiwan has a one-year military service requirement for all male citizens, Taiwan - like South Korea - has made exceptions or accommodations for professional baseball players, particularly those who have played for the country's National Team.

 

Lin is currently taking part in the Red Sox Rookie Development Program. For more on the outfielder, click here.

Doc on D&C: 'I just don't get' fine

Celtics coach Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning. Rivers was asked how the league came up with $25,000 as the amount to fine him for his actions toward the referees Monday night. "I don't know how we got to that number, but it's there," Rivers said, adding that he still doesn't understand why he was fined so much when the league basically admitted the call he was arguing was incorrect. "In this one, I just don't get it, but we move on. You know how it is."

 

Rivers said he wasn't surprised his team looked tired in Thursday night's loss to the Bulls. "It's tough to get mad," he said. "Before the game, I was concerned about that game. It was the last game of the four in five [nights], short bench ... To put on top of that the Bulls had been sitting in town for two days waiting. You knew it would be a tough game."

 

Rivers said he isn't...
