Youkilis clarifies: 'Jacoby's a good guy'
By: DJ Bean

In his appearance on Dale and Holley Tuesday, Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis clarified his stance on outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury. Limited to 18 games last season, Ellsbury spent much of the campaign in Arizona rehabbing, and not with the team. Youkilis had said in June that "there's a lot of guys here that are hurt and supporting the team. We wish Jacoby was here supporting us, too."

 

The third baseman noted Tuesday that he wasn't questioning Ellsbury's rib injury, but more expressing disappointment that the outfielder didn't stick around to encourage his teammates. 

 

"What I did there was -- and I still have this feeling, and I'll say it about anyone on the team -- I think you should be with your team, because there's a lot of things that happen," Youkilis said. "I think there's a case right now that we're hearing with the Green Bay Packers players. They had guys that were going home and...

Youkilis: 'I've always been a third baseman'
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox infielder Kevin Youkilis joined Dale and Holley on Tuesday to discuss his offseason and his return to third base. Given the team's acquisition of first baseman Adrian Gonzalez in December, Youkilis, who won a Gold Glove at first in 2007, will be going back to the position with which he is most familiar. 

 

Given the team's Youkilis, who became the team's regular first baseman in 2006 after spending much of his minor league career at third base, doesn't think there will be much adjustment when it comes to returning to his old position.

 

"I've always been a third baseman. I've always said I was like Happy Gilmore. He was a hockey player playing golf. I was a third baseman playing first base. That's what I always used to say. 

 

"It's one of those things where you never change what you've got to do. The only thing that is different is that I've thrown a little bit more, just...

Mashup: Brady more disliked than Big Ben

According to a poll commissioned by The Hollywood Reporter, Sunday's Super Bowl is headed for record ratings, and while Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is the most disliked player in the game, Tom Brady surprisingly ranks higher on the list of most disliked NFL players.

 

The poll indicates that 78 percent of Americans plan to watch the game, which would be a 5 percent hike from last year, and more are cheering for the Packers (45 percent to 39 percent). As for the league's most disliked players, Brett Favre is No. 1, Michael Vick No. 2, Brady No. 3 and Roethlisberger No. 4.

 

For more on that poll, plus an NHL poll ranking the teams players least want to play for, check out Tuesday's Morning Mashup.

Recchi: Thomas in conversation for MVP

In his latest column, WEEI.com Bruins beat writer D.J. Bean points out the case for B's goalie Tim Thomas in terms of winning the Hart Trophy, given to the NHL's most valuable player. Just six goalies have won the award, with Jose Theodore serving as the last netminder to earn the honor, in the 2001-02 season. Bean points out that Thomas is on pace to have better statistics than either Theodore during his MVP season, or Domink Hasek, who claimed the Hart Trophy two straight seasons, from 1997-99. 

 

Bruins' veteran Mark Recchi, who has previously voiced opposition to goalies winning the award, admits that Thomas should be considered if he continues to excel this season.

Report: B's considering shutting down Savard

In a phone conversation with ESPN.com, Bruins' general manager Peter Chiarelli said that his team is considering putting an end to Marc Savard's season after the forward suffered his fourth career concussion.

 

"There is a strong possibility [of shutting him down], but you have to take it step by step," said Chiarelli regarding Savard, who will be in Boston to be re-evaluated Wednesday. Chiarelli noted that the team still might not have a determination regarding Savard's immediate future following the upcoming round of tests.

 

Savard is still at his home in Peterborough, Ont., having continued to experience symptoms from his latest concussion, suffered on Jan. 22.

 

"There is a possibility [of shutting Savard down], but nothing has been done and you have to see how Marc is," Chiarelli said. "Anytime you...
