Dombro on Lovullo: 'We won't stand in his way'

With Mike Hazen departing to become general manager of the Diamondbacks, the natural followup is if he’ll take Torey Lovullo with him as manager.

Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski, speaking on a conference call Monday, made it clear he won’t deny him the chance.

“I’ll be surprised, I would say, if they don’t ask for permission to talk to Torey,” Dombrowski said. “I know how highly we think of him and how highly Mike thinks of him. But I can’t speak for that. That would have to be something that Mike would answer. Of course, we would not stand in Torey’s way, as we discussed last week. In my opinion, he’s ready to be a Major League manager. Would he end up being their top selection? I can’t answer that. We would not stand in his way.”

Hightower on OM&F doesn't like Burfict's low hit

Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower checked in with Ordway, Merloni & Fauria on Monday to discuss the Patriots’ 35-17 win over the Bengals on Sunday, while also touching on the Bengals’ chippiness late in the game. To hear the interview, go to the OM&F audio on demand page.

Late in the game things got chippy with the Bengals taking some cheap shots against the Patriots, including linebacker Vontaze Burfict going at Martellus Bennett’s knees. Hightower, a linebacker himself, wasn’t a fan of the play.

“It does [piss me off], but that is part of football,” Hightower said. “If the refs don’t call it and that is what it has come up to. That’s up to the refs. You have to do as business is being done. There are a lot of things that go down under the pile that doesn’t get flagged or whatever.

Belichick: 'Let league talk about [Burfict hit]'

Bill Belichick wasn’t about to get into a war of words with Vontaze Burfict or the Bengals on Monday.

The Patriots coach said he was more than willing to let the NFL and their disciplinary people handle the review of Burfict’s hit on Martellus Bennett in the fourth quarter Sunday.

With 11:22 left in the fourth, as the Patriots were marching down the field for a field goal, Adam Jones was defending Martellus Bennett over the middle and Tom Brady completed a pass to Danny Amendola.

Well after the ball, which was not intended for Bennett, cleared the receiver’s area, Burfict came in from Bennett’s blindside and took him out in the back of his left leg. Bennett was slow to get up and walked off the field after the hit. Replays showed that Burfict came over as Bennett was walking off and said something. Bennett said after the game that Burfict apologized for going low.

Multiple reports Monday morning indicated...

NFL reportedly will review Burfict low hit

Things got chippy late in the Patriots’ 35-17 win over the Bengals on Sunday.

One of the plays that led to the chippiness was Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict going low on Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett for no apparent reason. (For video of the play, scroll down to the end of the post.)

According to multiple reports, the NFL will be looking into the play and will note that Burfict is a repeat offender. It seems likely a big fine will be coming.

Afterwards, Bennett said Burfict apologized for the play.

“Just playing football,” Bennett said of the play. “It gets like that sometimes. You get guys who don’t back down from anyone and play hard the whole game, it’s just what it is. We won’t back down. We’re not looking for trouble, but we won’t walk away from trouble either.

“We always have each others’ backs. Things happen in a game. It was one of those things that just happened. It usually doesn’t happen that way,...

Hasselbeck: Jastremski no longer with Patriots

The conversation on the Kirk and Callahan Show Monday morning started with a debate about whether or not ESPN analyst Tim Hasselbeck was correct in his assessment of Deflategate.

But when it was suggested that he was wrong because equipment manager John Jastremski, one of the key subjects in the controversy, was still with the Patriots, Hasselbeck shot back with, “No, he’s not.”

Asked again if Jastremski was indeed no longer with the team, Hasselbeck reiterated, “Nope.”

The former Boston College quarterback wouldn’t elaborate on the matter, only following up with, “I’m not getting into that guy’s personal situational.”

As for the other key Patriots employee in the Deflategate situation, Jim McNally, Hasselbeck said he had no information on his status. “I don’t know about McNally’s situation.”

Both Jastremski and McNally were reinstated by the...
