Mashup: Barkley unhappy with ex-pal Tiger

Charles Barkley is back in the news again for criticizing a high-profile athlete. This time, instead of picking on LeBron James or one of the Heat's other Big Three, he's going after Tiger Woods. Barkley said he has not spoken to his former friend in nearly two years, and Woods' firing of his caddie last month put the former NBA star over the edge. "Getting rid of Steve Williams was probably the last straw for me," Barkley said Wednesday on ESPN radio in New York. Added Barkley: "I'm confused [as] to where he's going."

Ellsbury walks off this time with a homer

For the second straight night, Jacoby Ellsbury ended the game with a walk-off hit, this time hitting the first pitch he saw from Cleveland reliever Joe Smith into the center field bleachers for a two-out, ninth-inning homer, giving the Sox a 4-3 win over the Indians at Fenway Park.

It marked the first time a Red Sox player has claimed walk-off RBI on back-to-back nights since Butch Hobson accomplished the feat on August 27-28, 1978. 

"It felt great, I wasn’t sure, I know the wind had been blowing in, I hit a ball pretty good earlier in the game to right that didn’t get out, and when I hit it I knew I hit it well, I was just hoping it had enough," said Ellsbury of his home run.

"I didn’t know what to do once it went over and I was running around the bases. That was exciting, obviously I’ve never experienced that in the big leagues. It was fun."

Earning the win for the Red Sox...

Light: 'We're all fired up for this'

FOXBORO -- Speaking prior to a special practice for invited guest and select fans inside Gillette Stadium Wednesday night, veteran Patriots left tackle Matt Light said Wednesday that he can't wait to get back on the practice field and make another run at a Super Bowl with Tom Brady. 

"Hey look, I'm excited," Light said of returning for a 11th season with the Patriots. "I'm excited for all these guys that are out here, for all the work both sides did to get this deal done. This is a heckuva time. We've been sitting around waiting for this moment. For me personally, my family and everybody else, we're really excited to be back here in New England." 

Light, since he signed a new contract this week, can't practice until Thursday but was on the field watching the practice Wednesday night. 

"We're all fired up for this," Light said.

Light: NFLPA has call set to discuss new CBA

FOXBORO — Patriots player rep Matt Light indicated that the NFLPA has a conference call scheduled for late Wednesday night to discuss some of the issues that are still apparently holding up the completion of the new collective bargaining agreement.

Steelers defensive back Ryan Clark told reporters that unless NFL commissioner Roger Goodell would be willing to show some flexibility when it came to player discipline, the CBA won’t be ratified tomorrow. That would prevent the newly signed players from practicing with their new teams.

“De Smith is still working and we’re trying to get this figured out,” Clark said of the NFLPA chief. “But it’s not an absolute that guys will be at practice [Thursday].”

“I know that they’re going back and forth right now on some of these issues that are outstanding,” said Light, who signed a new deal earlier this week and said...
