New Sox Bailey: 'First time I've been healthy'

Reliever Andrew Bailey, speaking with the media Wednesday following the announcement of his trade to the Red Sox, said he's healthy and looking forward to returning to the Northeast to pitch for Bobby Valentine.

"I’m just grateful for the fact that the Red Sox saw value in me and they’d be able to bring some talent to the A’s and build for the future," the New Jersey native said. "I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited about being a Red Sox.”

Bailey missed a chunk of time last season due to elbow issues, but he insisted he has no problems as he prepares to take over the closer's role from Jonathan Papelbon.

"I’m feeling good, man, to be honest with you," he said. "This is my first healthy offseason I’ve had since I’ve been in the big leagues. In 2009, I had a little procedure done on my knee that I had to rehab in the middle of December. Last year was the...

Seidenberg leads B's past Coyotes in OT
By: DJ Bean

Dennis Seidenberg put the Bruins in first place Wednesday night in Phoenix, netting the game-winner in overtime and giving the Bruins a 2-1 victory over the Coyotes.

Benoit Pouliot set up by the play with some solid work behind Jason LaBarbera's net. The third-line winger sent the puck in front, and when Chris Kelly fanned on his bid, Seidenberg got to the puck and fired it off Derek Morris and in. The victory gave the Bruins 49 points on the season, putting them in first place in the Eastern Conference.

 

David Krejci got the Bruins on the board when he finished off a play that Brad Marchand created by intercepting a pass in the neutral zone. With the B's holding a 1-0 lead, veteran forward Ray Whitney executed a self-pass around Zdeno Chara, splitting two Bruins defensemen before beating Rask to tie it. 

Whitney's goal ended Rask's shutout streak at 170:26, as the Finnish goaltender was coming off back-to-back shutouts for...

Tired Celtics drop third straight game

The Celtics lost to the Hornets, 97-78, Wednesday night in New Orleans, remaining winless in their first three games. Ray Allen led the way for Boston with 15 points on 5-for-10 shooting. For the Hornets, Jarrett Jack scored 21 points and dished out nine assists. Carl Landry added 20 points and 11 rebounds for New Orleans.

The Hornets were missing their best offensive threat in Eric Gordon (bruised right knee), and Boston started the game going on a 9-2 run. Things quickly fell apart, and by halftime the Hornets were ahead by nine. Midway through the fourth quarter Boston found itself down by 18. The C's trailed by as many as 21 points.

Dealing with the second night of back-to-back games, Boston looked to its bench to provide fresh legs. However, Marquis Daniels and Brandon Bass combined for only 17 points on 7-for-25 shooting. The bench did get a nice effort from Greg Stiemsma, who blocked six shots in 20 minutes of playing time.

Sox acquire Bailey for Reddick, prospects

The Red Sox have acquired reliever Andrew Bailey and outfielder Ryan Sweeney from Oakland for outfielder Josh Reddick and minor league third baseman Miles Head and pitcher Raul Alcantera, WEEI.com's Alex Speier has confirmed. The trade was first reported by ESPN's Buster Olney.

The 27-year-old Bailey has a 2.07 ERA in 157 relief appearances over the last three seasons including 174 strikeouts in 174 innings pitched and 75 saves. Bailey was named Rookie of the Year in 2009 when he posted a 1.68 ERA and 26 saves for the A's and he was an All-Star in 2010. With Daniel Bard likely moving to the rotation and Jonathan Papelbon in Philadelphia, Bailey joins Mark Melancon in a revamped Sox bullpen.

Reddick got off to a hot start in 2011 and took part of the right field job after J.D. Drew was injured, but he cooled off down the stretch. Still, Reddick posted a solid line of .280/.327/.457 with...

Pedroia: Crawford is 'on a mission'
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia joined Steve Buckley and Rob Bradford on The Big Show Wednesday, saying that he is not concerned that left fielder Carl Crawford and new manager Bobby Valentine still have yet to speak to one another. Valentine made comments critical of Crawford while serving as an analyst for ESPN. 

"We're all professionals," Pedroia said. "I've texted with Carl a few times. Carl is working his butt off right now. He's on a mission, I can tell you that. He wants to play well. He wants to prove a lot of people wrong, and help us win games. He's going to do that. No doubt about it, he's going to come back and be a great player for us for many years to come. 

"We're all professionals. Once we get to spring training, we'll all get together and form our team and see what we're out to do, and that's trying to win a championship." 

Pedroia also said he hopes the team does not trade third...
