KG: 'I don't know what I'm going to do'

Celtics' center Kevin Garnett joined Mut & Merloni on Thursday and addressed his move to the position, as well as what his future holds for him as an unrestricted free agent. Garnett acknowledged that he doesn't like playing the five and likened coach Doc Rivers' system to Cuba, joking, "You don't really have a lot of say."

Still, Garnett added that he would, "Run through a brick wall for Doc." Asked whether playing for Rivers would factor into his free agent decision-making, Garnett said:

"I love Doc. If I was to come back next year it would be probably for Doc. I don't want to limit my options or nothing like that. I don't know what I'm going to do next year. I know our team is changing. I know a lot of the guys when I came here are not even here anymore. That sense of family has been depleted a bit. I will make my decision, and figure out what I'm going to do.

"I never wanted to be pieced around, or...

Hoyer: Cubs had no knowledge of injury

 FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer told MLB.com Thursday that Chicago wasn't aware of the elbow problem which has forced Chris Carpenter to have bone spurs removed. Carpenter came over from the Cubs in February as part of the compensation package for Theo Epstein.

"It's certainly something we had no knowledge of," Hoyer said. "I don't think he had any elbow issues for the last two years. Its' unexpected and unfortunate.

"It's obviously something you never want to happen. With any trade, you want both sides to feel good. It's not a great thing to have happen for Chris and the Red Sox."

A Red Sox team source confirmed that there were no issues with the medical information gathered from the Cubs when making the deal for Carpenter, with the Sox evaluating both the physical the pitcher underwent with Chicago at the beginning of the spring, as well as the entrance interview. The teams will keep...

Beckett: Is Schilling one of our pitchers?

Responding to Curt Schilling's criticism that things aren't going well in Red Sox camp under manager Bobby Valentine, Sox pitcher Josh Beckett said in an interview with The Big Show, "I haven't seen him around this year. Is he one of our pitchers?"

"I haven't seen him around," Beckett continued. "I'd think if someone knew that much they'd probably be a little closer to it. Game's a lot easier from over there [as a media person], I think. As far as him speaking about how things are being run, I haven't seen him around here to where he would know that much."

Beckett said that things have been "great" with Valentine and he's particular liked some of the changes he's made for the pitchers.  

"My legs have never felt this good coming out of spring training," Beckett said. "We don'...

Red Sox send Jair Bogaerts to Cubs

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Red Sox completed their end of the deal that sent Theo Epstein to the Cubs, with pitcher Chris Carpenter coming back to the Sox, dealing 19-year-old first baseman Jair Bogaerts to Chicago. Bogaerts is the twin brother of one of the top prospects in the Red Sox farm system, Xander Bogaerts.

The right-handed hitting Bogaerts was signed by the Red Sox on Aug. 23, 2099 as an international free agent, earning a $180,000 signing bonus. Playing in the Dominican Sumer League in 2011, the 6-foot-2, 230-pounder hit .288 with a .791 OPS to go along with two home runs.

The Red Sox received pitcher Aaron Kurcz on March 15 as a player to be named later in the deal.

Seidenberg out, Corvo in vs. Capitals
By: DJ Bean

Dennis Seidenberg was the only Bruin missing from morning skate Thursday, and he'll miss his first game of the season when the B's host the Capitals Thursday night at TD Garden. 

Seidenberg will be kept out of the lineup with an infected cut. The blueliner suffered the cut Saturday against the Kings, and after getting it stitched up played Sunday and Tuesday prior to it becoming infected.  

"In LA, he suffered a cut on his leg, and they stitched it up and everything was good, but a little infection has gotten into it now, so he's on antibiotics and just to play it safe, we're going to keep him out," coach Claude Julien explained. "It's just day-to-day, it's not long-term. It's just to take care of that."

Joe Corvo, who has been a healthy scratch for the last six games, will be inserted into the lineup in place of Seidenberg. With Seidenberg not playing for the first time this season, centers Patrice Bergeron and...
