Cherington: Top tier FA pitchers not likely

DALLAS -- According to Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington, the Red Sox aren't likely to be in the mix when it comes to signing top tier free agent pitchers. At various times this offseason, the Sox have been linked to the likes of C.J. Wilson, Mark Buerhle, Roy Oswalt and Hiroki Kuroda. But, as was reported by WEEI.com Saturday, some financial flexibility would have to be attained if such pitchers were going to become viable free agent signings by the Sox.

"You never say never, but I think it's more likely we'll be pursuing other options," Cherington said during his session with the Boston media at the baseball winter meetings. "We always want to stay involved to the extent we have the latest information and keep your options open because you never know what may come your way and how that may change things. I would say it's less likely we'll be involved in those top tier guys as relative to the past."

Belichick: 'We need to be more consistent'

Patriots coach Bill Belichick joined The Big Show for his weekly Monday breakdown and said his team needed to be more consistent in the wake of Sunday's 31-24 victory over the Colts.

"We didn't have a very good start to the game," Belichick said. "Once we got going there we put up a lot of points and didn't give up many. Then at the end we couldn't make a first down and couldn't stop them. We all saw it. We need to be more consistent." 

Asked what went wrong in the fourth quarter, Belichick said, "It was mainly some big plays that we gave up. It was a combination of things. We didn't rush as well as we needed to, we didn't cover as well as we needed to. Maybe we could have called things a little bit differently in a couple of places. … There's a couple I'd like to have back, and I'm sure there are a couple the players would like to have back."

The coach did have praise for Vince Wilfork, who recorded...

Prospect Westmoreland to play in games

DALLAS -- Red Sox minor leaguer Ryan Westmoreland will face live pitching in games in the Dominican Instructional League later this week. It will be the first time that Westmoreland, 21, has played in a game since undergoing surgery to remove a cavernous malformation in his brain stem on March 16, 2010.

"He got full medical clearance yesterday," said agent Lou Nero of Octagon. "It's going to be an interesting couple of days."

Westmoreland -- who emerged as a top Red Sox prospect after being taken in the 2008 draft and hitting .296 with a .401 OBP, .484 slugging mark and .885 OPS with seven homers for the Lowell Spinners in 2009 -- will serve as a designated hitter while in the Dominican. While the plan is subject to change, right now, the Sox expect that he will have one at-bat in a game on Thursday and two on Friday.

The undertaking represents a milestone in the outfielder's recovery, and signals that his balance,...

Harvard cracks Top 25 for first time ever

The Harvard basketball team, coming off a victory over Seattle on Sunday that improved the team's record to 8-0, is ranked No. 25 in The Associated Press Week 5 poll that was released Monday afternoon. It's the first time in school history Harvard has been ranked.

The Crimson's first game as a ranked team is tough one: at ninth-ranked UConn Thursday night. They then play at Boston University Saturday afternoon.

Keith Wright leads the Crimson with 11.4 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. Medway product Kyle Casey averages 10.9 points and Laurent Rivard contributes 10.1.

Kentucky held the top spot for the second consecutive week, followed by Ohio State, Syracuse and North Carolina.

Harvard also earned a spot in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches' Poll, checking in at No. 24.

Brady on D&C: 'We're in a good position'

Tom Brady checked in with Dennis & Callahan Monday morning for his weekly visit, one day after a 31-24 victory over the Colts that turned out to be closer than expected after Indianapolis scored 21 straight points in the fourth quarter.

"We didn't execute very well," Brady said. "Offensively, we didn't get a first down in the fourth quarter. You can't do that. You're not going to do much in terms of helping your defense out, either. We were up 31-3 and I think everyone was obviously happy with that, but we'd like to close the game out a lot better than we did yesterday."

Added Brady: "It's just our inconsistency that's showed up from time to time this year. We've really yet to play a 60-minute game. I'd really love to see what the outcome is if we do play a 60-minute game. But there's things that haven't really allowed us to be able to do that. And hopefully, we can get those things straightened out here going into this...
