Mashup: Jets' Sanchez wanted to 'fight' Ryan

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, in an interview with GQ magazine, said he was furious at coach Rex Ryan last year when Ryan had backup Mark Brunell practice with the first team following Sanchez' struggles in consecutive games vs. the Patriots and Dolphins: "I wanted to fight him. I was really mad," Sanchez said. Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer calmed down Sanchez, who said he still respects Ryan's honesty.

Wakefield, Sox fall short against Seattle

Tim Wakefield missed out on yet another opportunity to win his 200th career victory, allowing five runs over eight innings in the Red Sox' 5-3 loss to the Mariners Sunday afternoon at Safeco Field in Seattle. It was the fourth start in a row that the 45-year-old has failed to garner a win.

South Portland, Maine native Charlie Furbush claimed the win for the Mariners, holding the Sox to just one run on four hits over seven innings. The only Sox run against the lefty came in the fourth inning when Jed Lowrie's sacrifice fly plated Adrian Gonzalez, cutting the visitors' deficit at the time to two runs.

The only other runs mustered by the Red Sox came courtesy Kevin Youkilis' two-run home run in the eighth inning. The Sox would only get three baserunners into scoring position, managing six hits against Furbush and relievers Jeff Gray and Brandon League. Adrian Gonzalez claimed the multiple-hit game for the Red Sox, coming away with two singles....

Mankins on deal: 'Stuff just falls into place'

FOXBORO -- Speaking for the first time since agreeing to a six-year contract extension worth an estimated $51 million, Patriots Pro Bowl offensive guard Logan Mankins said he was relieved the process is over and can now focus on playing his best for the Patriots. 

"I don't know. Stuff just falls into place sometimes," Mankins said following Sunday's practice. 

Mankins also took the opportunity Sunday to say how grateful he is to be playing the next six seasons in New England, including this campaign for long-time offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia. 

"I think a lot of people probably take Dante for granted," Mankins said. "He's, in my opinion, the best O-line coach in the league. I'm glad I get to play for him a while longer. He works the dog out of us but we're always in great shape during games so we really appreciate his work."

Mankins and the team came to terms last Wednesday, just...
