Jenks makes solid debut in Red Sox loss

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Bobby Jenks made his first appearance of the spring Thursday, giving up one hit and no runs over an inning in the Red Sox' 2-0 loss to the Phillies at City of Palms Park. It was the latest Jenks has waited to pitch in a spring training game, having taking an approach suggested by Red Sox' pitching coach Curt Young that included leading into the appearance with four bullpen sessions and two simulated games.

 

I made some really good pitches. I threw the ball for the most part exactly where I wanted to," Jenks said. "All in all, it was a really good day."

 

Jenks, who hopes to make about eight more spring training appearances before the beginning of the regular season, explained that he threw various forms of his fastballs, along with changeups, during his 12-pitch outing. The reliever's only blemish came when Philadelphia's Shane Victorino led off the fifth inning by hitting a double on a...

Celtics make Pavlovic signing official

The Celtics officially added Sasha Pavlovic to the roster, signing the free agent swingman. With Pavlovic on board the Celtics have the maximum 15 players on their roster. They still have room to maneuver with center Chris Johnson working on a 10-day contract. The 6-foot-8 Pavlovic has played in just 14 games this season, splitting his time between the Maveriks and Hornets. He offers insurance on the wing and playoff experience. He's likely to compete with Von Wafer for playing time behind Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Jeff Green.

Obama: I won't get involved in lockout

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday afternoon, President Barack Obama said he would not intervene in negotiations between NFL owners and players.

“You’ve got owners, most of whom are worth close to $1 billion. You’ve got players who are making millions are dollars. My working assumption at a time when people are having to cut back, compromise and worry about making the mortgage and paying for their kids’ college education is that the two parties should be able to work it out without the President of the United States intervening,” he said.

“I’m a big football fan, but I also think for an industry that is making $9 billion a year in revenue, they can figure out how to divide it up in a sensible way and be true to their fans who are the ones who, obviously, allow for all of the money that they are making,” he continued. “My expectation and hope is that they will resolve it...

Thornton: B's not focused on '72 comparisons
By: DJ Bean

As has been well-documented, the Bruins are coming off a perfect six-game road trip as they enter Thursday night's bout with the Lightning at TD Garden. Much attention has been placed on the fact that the last time the team won all six of such a road-trip was in the 1972 Stanley Cup-winning season. Veteran forward Shawn Thornton said he doesn't see the need to get caught up in such comparisons. 

 

"I don't look at it at all," Thornton said following Thursday's morning skate. "I honestly don't. It's purely a coincidence as far as I'm concerned." 

 

In facing the Lightning, the B's will see a team they are currently tied with in points (81). They hold the tiebreaker because less of their wins have come in the shootout, but the winner of Thursday's game will take over second place in the Eastern Conference. 

 

"We've got a six game thing going here, and it doesn...
