FOXBORO — One of the biggest advantages of the bye week is that teams get the chance to self-scout and work on parts of the game they identify as areas to improve.
That’s exactly how Bill Belichick will be spending the last day of week before he sets the players free for a four-day bye weekend.
“Today is a day really to focus more on the Patriots than anything else, just to work on things that we need to work on based on the first three games and our practice situations,” Belichick announced in opening his Wednesday press conference at Gillette Stadium. “There’s things that will come up along the way that we need to clean up, go back and talk about it a little bit. Do a better job of coaching, do a better job of executing them on the field, understand...

According to multiple sources, the San Diego Padres will announce the hiring of Don Orsillo either Wednesday or Thursday.
Orsillo will be participating in both the team’s radio and television broadcasts for the 2016 season. He will then transition to strictly TV for the remainder of his contract.
The plan to integrate the current NESN Red Sox play-by-play announcer into radio stems from Dick Enberg’s commitment to still do approximately 60 television games in ’16, along with a desire to allow for a consistent presence from Orsillo in his new market.
The 46-year-old Orsillo had been the Pawtucket Red Sox radio announcer prior to joining NESN in 2001.
He joins a Padres organization that is led by executives with Boston roots, with former Red Sox COO Mike Dee...
The future continues to look bright for the Red Sox.
The 2015 season isn’t going to go down as one to remember, but these final two months have given Red Sox fans a reason to hope.
On Tuesday night in New York, the Red Sox rode two home runs from catcher Blake Swihart and one from outfielder Mookie Betts to a 10-4 victory that moved them a half game ahead of the rained-out Orioles for sole possession of third place in the American League East for the first time since May 20.
The Red Sox also won five straight for the first time all season.
Both teams did the bulk of...
NEW YORK – It was one of the more unique, and potentially important, pieces of the Red Sox puzzle over the last two months: Jerry Dipoto evaluating the organization’s minor-league talent as a hired consultant.
The importance of Dipoto arguably became more vital to the Red Sox once Dave Dombrowski came on as the team’s president of baseball operations, with Dombrowski having to spend the majority of his time and efforts with the big league club. But now Dipoto’s stretch with the Red Sox has come to an end thanks to his new job as the Seattle Mariners‘ general manager.
“I wish he would have...
