Report: Connolly to visit Buccaneers Tuesday

Offensive lineman Dan Connolly is scheduled for a visit with the Bucs later this week, according to a report from ESPN. The 32-year-old free agent is one of the longest-tenured member of the New England roster, having been with the Patriots since 2007. The 6-foot-4, 311-pounder has played all three interior positions along the offensive line, and has started 43 regular-season games the last three seasons for New England.

There are plenty of Patriots’ ties in Tampa for Connolly to consider — fellow offensive lineman Logan Mankins was dealt to the Bucs late last August. In addition, the Tampa Bay front office features GM Jason Licht and assistant GM Jon Robinson, both of who made their bones in the New England system.

Napoli (broken-bat HR), Masterson lead Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. — As spring training games go, Monday night’s 14-2 pummeling of the crosstown Twins was about as good as it gets for the Red Sox.

Exactly one week before the season opener in Philadelphia, John Farrell rolled out a lineup that fans can expect to see against the Phillies (and hopefully most of the season). And that lineup produced just as Red Sox management hoped when they put together the new offense over the winter.

Leadoff hitter Mookie Betts continued his scorching spring with two more hits, including an RBI double high off the Monster in a six-run fourth. He scored twice and is now batting .467 on the spring.

Celtics sting Hornets, move back into 8th place

The Celtics got knocked out of the Eastern Conference’s eighth seed on Sunday when they were blown out on their home floor by the Clippers. Monday in Charlotte offered the C’s a chance to grab that spot back from the Nets, but the Hornets are battling for a playoff berth just like the Celtics, so it wasn’t going to be easy.

The Celtics came out hot, and in the end showed more heart despite a late run from the Hornets, coming out on top, 116-104. Boston improved to 33-41 on the season, while knocking the Hornets to 31-42.
