Caught ya!

Well it didn’t take long for the Red Sox to get rid of A.J Pierzynski before someone picked him up. Reports are saying he signed with the St. Louis Cardinals. St. Louis is already plagued with problems behind the plate, as they lost Yadier Molina earlier this month to surgery after a thumb injury. St. Louis was already splitting time between Tony Cruz and George Kottaras, which makes this move somewhat unorthodox as Pierzynski is older, was referred to as being a poor influence in the clubhouse by many in Boston and so far has experienced one of his worst seasons of his career.

The Boston Celtics have been in the midst of trade talks since the end of the 2013-14 NBA season. The C’s have been mentioned in a wide range of rumors from acquiring Minnesota’s Kevin Love to trading Rajon Rondo. Through the whirlwind of these rumors, the Celts have remained rather quiet, however.

The C’s were involved in a three-way trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Brooklyn Nets, which landed Boston the services of Marcus Thornton and Tyler Zeller along with a future first-round draft pick. The C’s only surrendered a trade exception and a protected second-round pick in the deal. The Celts were also involved in a sign-and-trade deal with the Washington Wizards, dealing Kris Humphries for a conditional second-rounder and a trade exception.

Rob Gronkowski has been cleared to play. (Steve Milne, USA Today)

While addressing the media Wednesday morning, Bill Belichick announced that Rob Gronkowski will not begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list, and that he has been cleared to play.

The announcement comes as a bit of a shock, as Gronkowski had surgery to repair his right ACL on January 9th.

The Patriot’s tight end said last week that he plans to play the whole season. And while today is a step in that direction, staying healthy remains the ultimate obstacle. Continue reading Rob Gronkowski Cleared to Play for Patriots »

Dustin Pedroia

On the outside, Jace Andrews of Montgomery, Texas, appears no different from any other 12-year old boy. He likes to play sports, including baseball, and hopes to someday work at either Fenway Park or ESPN. The ambitious son of John and Julie Andrews has battled adversity since the beginning of his life, which includes a nine-hour open heart procedure just days after birth.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation granted Jace’s wish to see Fenway Park, with tour guide Dustin Pedroia leading the way. Jace idolizes the Red Sox second baseman, who inspires Jace because of the Pedroia’s ability to make it to the major leagues, despite his size.
