Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge joined The Big Show for his weekly visit and said that the team was likely to stay intact through the rest of the season. The trade deadline is Feb. 24, but Ainge pointed to the return of Kendrick Perkins last week, as well as the return of Delonte West, hopefully in late February. "Of course there's players out there that are good players, but I like our team," Ainge said. "I like the mix when we're all healthy.

"[The Red Sox] might be a finished product, where we're an unfinished product. But you don't win championships in the winter," Cashman said. "The season hasn't started yet."
Cashman said that while he hasn't talked directly to Jeter, he has been in communication with the veteran's agent, Casey Close, explaining that nothing should be made of the comments and that the GM was simply trying to portray how athletic Jeter was.
