Bailey slated to appear in game Monday

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Andrew Bailey said Thursday morning at JetBlue Park that he will throw a live batting practice Friday, with an eye on pitching in the Red Sox' home spring training game against the Marlins Monday afternoon. 

The plan is for Bailey to get somewhere between 7-10 innings of game action in before the start of the regular season. The closer also surmised there could be back-to-back outings, and perhaps a stint of more than one inning.

"Ready to go," Bailey said. "I'm getting antsy."

Although his spring training last season was limited to 1 1/3 innings due to injury, the previous spring -- his first as a full-time closer -- the righty pitched in seven games, going 6 1/3 innings. In 2009, when he was simply attempting to make the Oakland roster, Bailey totaled 13 2/3 innings.

Starter Aaron Cook, who has been brought along slowly due to past shoulder issues, reported he threw a live BP Tuesday and...

Mashup: Rangers' Darvish debuts in style

Heralded Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish made his spring training debut Wednesday and was impressive in two innings against the Padres. The Japanese 25-year-old, acquired after the Rangers won a bidding war for his services in the offseason, allowed no runs on two hits, although Will Venable blasted a ball that the wind kept in the park for a double.

Afterward, Darvish said through his translator that, contrary to the perception of apparently everyone else in the park, the wind helped the ball and that, "I don't think he really squared it up."

Responded Venable: "Maybe his perception of reality [in the majors] isn't right yet. But otherwise, I've got no comment."

Celtics get their bell rung in Philly

The Celtics went to Philadelphia with a chance to take first place in the Atlantic Division. Unfortunately, they were also playing the Sixers on the second night of a back-to-back. Optimism met reality in a 103-71 loss.

They have now lost all six of their games on the second night of a back-to-back on the road, but this one was worse than all the others. The Celtics were never in the game as Philly jumped out to a 20-11 lead and poured it on in, taking a 55-33 halftime lead. The Celtics didn't make a 3-pointer, only the third time since the 2000 season and tied a season-low for points in a game, while suffering the worst loss in the Big Three era.

The loss snapped the Celtics' five game-winning streak and held the Sixers break a 2-8 skid. Paul Pierce had 16 points and four rebounds, which was easily the best performance of the night for anyone in a Boston uniform. Evan Turner scored 26 points for Philadelphia and Elton Brand added 18 on 8-for-10...

Sauve recalled, Hutchinson sent down
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins recalled forward Max Sauve from Providence on an emergency basis Wednesday and sent goaltender Michael Hutchinson to Providence.

Sauve, a second-round pick in the 2008 draft, has seven goals and 10 assists in 29 AHL games this season. He is expected to join the B's for Thursday's morning skate. The Bruins could be in need of a forward with Benoit Pouliot day-to-day after leaving Tuesday's win over the Maple Leafs in the second period.

Hutchinson was recalled Saturday following the injury to Tuukka Rask in the team's loss to the Islanders. Hutchinson did not play a game with the B's in his stint with the team, and was no longer needed after the team signed veteran netminder Marty Turco.

Report: Jets already inquired about Manning

According to a report from Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets have already inquired about Peyton Manning's interest in signing with the club as a free agent.

Manning -- released by the Colts on Wednesday afternoon -- has been rumored as a possibility for the Jets since the team collapsed at the end of the regular season, losing three straight games to finish 8-8 and miss the playoffs. Mark Sanchez struggled down the stretch, throwing seven interceptions in the three losses, and was ripped by several teammates (anonymously) after the season, with one suggesting Sanchez was "lazy and content because he knows he's not going to be benched." 

Rex Ryan has defended Sanchez to several different media outlets and has said that believes Sanchez will be the starting quarterback next season.
