There’s always one or two lasting moments from Bill Belichick’s appearances at the AFC coaches breakfast at the NFL owners meetings typically held in late March.
It doesn’t appear Belichick will be taking part in the event this year (Tuesday in Arizona), as according to the Boston Herald’s Jeff...
FORT MYERS, Fla. — It was hardly a surprise.
Rusney Castillo and Allen Craig were part of a group who was reassigned to the minor leagues Sunday morning, joining outfielder Brian Bogusevic, infielder Matt Dominguez, catcher Jake DePew and pitcher Hector Velazquez. Noe Ramirez, who made the Opening Day roster a year ago, was also optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket.
So, has anything changed for Castillo and/or Craig? It depends.
In terms of their chances of finding significant time on the Red Sox roster, the duo’s plight remains the same. Craig is in the final year of his five-year, $31 million due, due to make $11 million this season, while Castillo is slated to make $10.5 million this season, with four more years left on a seven-year, $72.5 million deal.
As colleague John Tomase points out, it would cost the Red Sox $56,596 a day to keep Castillo on the 25-man roster. So a two-week stint with the big league club mean...
Win or lose, the Bruins could not have been eliminated from postseason contention on Saturday night in Brooklyn.
But a loss to the Islanders would have made qualifying for the postseason awfully difficult for the Black and Gold, who would officially have their fate taken out of their hands. The Bruins don’t have to worry about that just yet, though, as a 2-1 gut-it-out win over the Islanders at the Barclays Center has propelled the Bruins back into a playoff position and in the East’s second wild card spot.
Down Tuukka Rask, who remained back in Boston with a lower-body, Anton Khudobin was asked to step up to the plate with what would have to be the biggest game of his B’s tenure, and did he ever.
Peppered for 19 shots on the night...
Just from his one year in New England, it’s well known Martellus Bennett is a very charitable guy.
The tight end is continuing his efforts in Green Bay.
On Saturday, Bennett said on Twitter he plans to donate all the money he makes as commission on his jersey sales to after school programs he’s working to put together.
Bennett added he got the idea from his brother Michael, who is donating all his endorsement money to charity this season.
He will be wearing No. 80 with the Packers.
I’ll take all the money from my @packers jersey sales and put it towards the after school programs that I’m working to put together.

For the second year in a row, the Bruins find themselves in what is essentially a must-win game and Tuukka Rask is unavailable.
Called out after allowing five goals on 28 shots in Thursday’s loss to the Lightning (the game-winning goal was a straight-up bad one), the 30-year-old Rask was not on the ice for Friday’s practice back in Boston (Bruins interim coach Bruce Cassidy called it a maintenance day), and did not travel to Brooklyn with the club for tonight’s game against the Islanders because of what the team has termed a lower-body injury.
“He’s day-to-day,” Cassidy said after the morning skate in Brooklyn. “He came in yesterday, had some discomfort — lower-body — he had some work done and didn’t feel that he’d be ready to go today.”
With Rask unavailable, the...
