Mashup: Glavine wants to buy Thrashers

Former Braves pitcher Tom Glavine has shown interest in forming an investment group to purchase the Thrashers. The Billerica native was a standout prep hockey player who was drafted by the Kings but chose a career in baseball instead. Now, he wants to keep hockey in Atlanta, despite the fact that the Thrashers are one of the league's least valuable teams.

Read more about that story and others — including how police intercepted parcel bombs sent to the coach and two fans of a Scottish soccer team — along with videos, trivia and more, at Thursday's Morning Mashup.

Kraft: No football would be 'criminal'

Patriots owner Robert Kraft sounded an optimistic note about the state of pro football on Wednesday. Speaking with CSNNE.com, Kraft said it would be “criminal” if football isn’t played on Sunday’s at Gillette Stadium this fall, but added that everyone was trying to make a new deal work.

“I promise I will do everything I can do,” Kraft said. “It would really be criminal if we don’t have football here on Sundays. ... I know [commissioner Roger Goodell] and [NFL general counsel] Jeff Pash and our whole team are doing everything they can do to continue negotiations. We’ve got to negotiate, not litigate. We should have a deal. There’s a deal ready to be done where we can play football in the fall. You saw our schedule come out [Tuesday]. We’re excited about that and now we have to find a way to get the players back in.”

Starting to jell: Sox beat A's, 5-3

The Red Sox starting staff, which was statistically the worst in baseball through the first two weeks of the season, is now on a run unlike any seen by the time in more than 60 years. Clay Buchholz allowed one run in 5 1/3 innings, marking the fifth straight start by the team of at least five innings and one or fewer runs, as the Sox beat the A's, 5-3, to split a two-game series in Oakland.

Sox starters are 4-0 with a 1.15 ERA in their last turn of the rotation. The current run marks the first time since 1947 that a Red Sox team has had five straight starts of at least five innings and no more than one run allowed in the same season.

Buchholz (1-2) allowed a solo homer to Coco Crisp on his first pitch of the game, but then permitted no further damage, holding the A's 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position on a day when he struggled with his command to earn his first win of the year. He left with the bases loaded and one out, but Daniel Bard came...

Billups, Stoudemire in doubt for Game 3

Knicks point guard Chauncey Billups had his ailing left knee drained and received a cortisone shot on Wednesday in hopes of returning to the court for Game 3 against the Celtics on Friday, according to The New York Daily News.

An MRI on Billups' left knee reportedly revealed only the original diagnosis of a knee strain, not ligament damage. The paper stated that -- although "cautiously optimistic" -- some Knicks sources believe Billups needs a week to recover. 

"Chauncey's doing everything he can to get back out there," a Knicks official told The News. "This is killing him. He feels they would have won both games if he was out there at the end."

Meanwhile, New York Post reporter Marc Berman tweeted that Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire is listed as day-to-day with a pulled back muscle after also undergoing an MRI. Berman wrote, "His MRI showed a pulled muscle in his back. ... Amar'e's pulled muscle and...
