Sox announce Crawford surgery for Thursday
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox announced Monday that outfielder Carl Crawford will have Tommy John surgery on his left elbow Thursday. 

The decision comes after the outfielder met with the team Monday to discuss the next course of action regarding the injury. Crawford, 31, has said that he was told by Dr. James Andrews that he would need the operation to repair the torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left arm, which is his throwing arm. The recovery time from Tommy John surgery for position players has been said to be somewhere between six and nine months.

Crawford, who had offseason wrist surgery and missed the first 89 games of the season, hit .282/.306/.479 this season with three homers, 19 RBI and five stolen bases in 31 games this season.

Report: Brady to sit out vs. Eagles

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady will not play against the Philadelphia Eagles in the second preseason game of the year, according to a tweet from the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe. 

Part of the concern of head coach Bill Belichick could lie in the fact that Brady and the offensive line was roughed up in club's preseason opener on Aug. 9. He was just 4-for-7 for 30 yards, with a strip-sack fumble and a three-and-out to start the game. The other concern is Philadelphia's front four, a group that sacked Pittsburgh quarterbacks seven times and hit them seven other times in a 24-23 Eagles win on Aug. 9.

Report: C's Zarren in line for 76ers GM job?

Celtics assistant general manager Mike Zarren "is a serious candidate" to replace Rod Thorn as 76ers general manager, according to Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick.

Considered C's president Danny Ainge's right-hand man, Zarren has earned a reputation as the numbers guy behind the C's study of advanced statistical metrics and the complex NBA salary cap. Former Trail Blazers assistant general manager Tom Penn and former Hornets GM Jeff Bower are also considered leading candidates.

Mashup: Jets riddled with issues

In Monday's Morning Mashup, the New York media turns on the Jets after their woeful performance in Saturday night's preseason game against the Giants.

Writes Steve Serby of the New York Post:

There is one game at which the Jets can score at will, in any number of ways. It is not a football game.

It is The Blame Game.

Now, kickoff for The Blame Game generally occurs any time during the regular season or postseason, when any number of targets materialize who inevitably and unceremoniously draw the ire of an enraged fan base busy at work trying to extend a 43-year Curse.

But it is never too early for The Blame Game, and here the stars have aligned themselves perfectly for the Jets to move up the opening kickoff for The Blame Game to today.

Icebergs aren’t usually spotted in August around here, but Jets fans are certain they know a Titanic when they see one.

Serby...

Ortiz hoping to return during homestand

NEW YORK -- Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, out since July 16 due to a right Achilles strain, said that he is seeing enough improvement that he is optimistic that he will play during the upcoming seven-game homestand that begins Tuesday. While he does not expect to play Tuesday (owing to the fact that he has yet to test the injury by running), he surmised that he might be ready not too long thereafter.

"Hopefully. If things continue the way they are, probably, yeah," Ortiz said of the likelihood that he would return during the homestand. I’m finally seeing the light when it comes to my injury. ... At first, when I got injured, I heard about something like [it could be a six-week recovery process]. Of course, that’s not what you want to hear at the time. You’re thinking about 15 days at most. But now that I’m seeing the result of feeling better, it’s a six-week kind of thing."

Ortiz said that he does...
