Report: Brady will lead local workouts

Pariots quarterback Tom Brady has made his way back to New England for the Best Buddies Challenge this weekend. While he’s in the area, he’ll also lead a series of local players-only workouts starting Wednesday, according to ESPN Boston.

The Patriots have been having local workouts involving just over a dozen players for the last few weeks, but this marks the first time that Brady has been in the mix. The quarterback has spent the majority of his offseason thus far in California as he continues to rehab after foot surgery he underwent in January, but he figured to take advantage of his return to the area for his charity event to get some work in with his teammates.

During the lockout, coordinating schedules for players across the country is not an easy thing, as many players are working out on their own at different facilities. Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker talked about the difficulties of trying to get everyone on the...

LeBron, Wade lead Heat past Mavericks

Miami got the jump on Dallas, as LeBron James finished with 24 points and nine rebounds to lead the Heat to a 92-84 win over the Mavericks Tuesday night in Game 1 of the NBA finals. Things went back-and-forth through much of the first half, but Miami took command in the third quarter behind James and Dwyane Wade (22 points, 10 rebounds, six assists) as the Heat wiped out an eight-point deficit and pulled away down the stretch. Dirk Nowitzki had 27 points and eight rebounds for Dallas, who also got 16 points from Shawn Marion in the loss. Game 2 will be in Miami on Thursday night.

Lackey 'ready' for return after rehab start

PAWTUCKET, R.I. — If Tuesday night's rehab start is any indication, John Lackey is well on the road to recovery from an elbow injury. The big righty lasted 5 2/3 innings for Triple-A Pawtucket, giving up one run on three hits while striking out four and not walking a batter.

Lackey threw 63 pitches in the outing, 46 of which were for strikes. Among those 63 pitches was a steady mix of fastballs, curveballs, sliders and changeups.

"I felt like I had pretty good command considering it’s been a while since I faced some hitters. I was encouraged by it for sure. The elbow felt a lot better than it had been feeling," Lackey said after the start. "I felt pretty good about it. It’s up to [the Red Sox], but I’d be ready to go [on Sunday]."

The lone run came on a 93 mph meatball that Norfolk Tides center fielder Matt Angle slammed to right field in the third inning. Lackey would've been in line for his...

Aceves shelled as Red Sox drop third straight

Red Sox starter Alfredo Aceves saw his 12-game winning streak (which dated to 2009) come to a crashing halt, as the right-hander endured the worst start of his career in a 10-7 loss to the White Sox.

Aceves gave up eight runs (six earned) in five-plus innings, doubling his previous career-high for runs allowed. He also set new career highs for hits allowed (8) and baserunners (11) as he saw his record drop to 2-1. He actually blitzed through the first inning in just seven pitches before his night quickly unraveled in the second. He gave up a leadoff walk and a soft single to right, then loaded the bases with a one-out walk. But the White Sox scratched out a four-run rally on a few dink hits -- a bounding RBI single through the hole into left field by Gordon Beckham, an RBI fielder's choice error committed by Jed Lowrie on another grounder into the hole, and a two-out, two-run single that was bounced up the middle by Alexei Ramirez.

The White Sox...

Neely: Winning as executive next best thing
By: DJ Bean

VANCOUVER -- Bruins president Cam Neely was among those to speak at the Stanley Cup finals' media day on Tuesday, and the 45-year-old reflected on his time as a player for both the Canucks and Bruins, as well as his excitement to see his team chase a trophy he never won in the area in which he grew up.

"I got to Maple Ridge in 1976 and became a huge Canuck fan," Neely recalled. "... Unfortunately it didn't work out well for me here, and things worked well in Boston.  

"I certainly kept tabs on what happened to the Canucks over the years, of course except when they played us. But it's home, and Boston is home as well. It's fun to see what the Canucks have been able to accomplish, especially this year. They've got a great team. It's going to be a pretty interesting series."

Though Neely could not hoist the Cup in his playing days, he hopes to do so as an executive, something he spoke to Tuesday....
