Belichick: Chiefs situation 'hit our team'
By: DJ Bean

Making his weekly appearance on The Big Show, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said he reached out Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel after Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend and himself in a murder-suicide on Saturday. 

After shooting Kassandra Perkins, Belcher drove to Arrowhead Stadium and met with Pioli and Crennel, thanking his general manager and coach before taking his life. Given Pioli and Crennel's long history of working in New England, Belichick said the incident shook the Pats as well. 

"It's terrible situation [in Kansas City], but with that being said, I think even for the other 31 teams there's certainly a strong ripple effect," he said. "I mean, there's some waves there that I think hit our team and hit every team. I mean, I definitely feel like it hit our team because of our closeness to that organization, if you will, to a degree. 

"Every team had to feel that. I mean, every...

Source: Yankees showing interest in Ross

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- According to a source, the Yankees have shown interest in free agent outfielder Cody Ross and requested his medical information earlier this week. 

Ross, 31, is looking for a three-year deal from the Red Sox, but thus far the team is only willing to go as far as two years. Playing on a one-year, $3 million deal last season, Ross hit .267/.326/.481 with 22 homers and 81 RBI for the Red Sox.

Kurkjian on M&M: Napoli 'a real pro'

ESPN's Tim Kurkjian joined Mut & Merloni on Monday, shortly after reports emerged that the Red Sox have agreed to a three-year, $39 million contract with free agent Mike Napoli.

"It's roughly what I thought he was going to get," Kurkjian said. "It's probably a little bit more than I thought he was going to get, but you're dealing with a Red Sox team here that is clearly in trouble, clearly needed to have a bat at first base. We all know his swing is perfect for Fenway Park, we've all seen his numbers at Fenway Park. Of course, not a whole lot matters from that until he actually gets to Fenway Park as a member of the Red Sox and we can see what he can do.

"I think it was the right thing to do for them because they had to have a bat. He's a real pro. A couple of years ago he was as good a hitter as there was in the American League the second half of the season. He had a real drop-off last year. But I think he'll be a better...

Sox, Napoli agree for three years, $39M

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- According to multiple major league sources, the Red Sox have reached a three-year, $39 million agreement with free agent Mike Napoli.

Though he struggled to a .227 average with a .343 OBP, .469 slugging mark and .812 OPS with the Rangers in 2012, Napoli represented one of the top free agent options for the Sox, both because of his history of consistent offensive production (.259/.356/.507/.863 career line) -- demonstrating both middle-of-the-order power and considerable plate discipline -- and because the Rangers did not make him a qualifying offer, thus meaning that the Sox will not lose a draft pick for signing him. The 31-year-old has also been an absolute force at Fenway Park, hitting .306/.397/.710/1.107 with seven homers in 19 regular season games.

Napoli figures to be the Red Sox' primary first base option.

Mashup: Jets fans cheer Sanchez' benching

The Jets put up another offensive stinker Sunday, but they managed to pull out a 7-6 victory over the Cardinals that kept their slim playoff hopes alive. Quarterback Mark Sanchez was brutally heckled by Jets fans for his brutal play -- even after backup Greg McElroy entered the game late in the third quarter to loud cheers and threw a 1-yard touchdown pass.

"Well, you can definitely tell that the stadium was happy about it," defensive back Yeremiah Bell said.

"It's just something that I sensed, that I felt," coach Rex Ryan said. "When you're around this game long enough, you get that feeling that: You know what? I've seen enough, and it's time to make that change."

After the win, Jets players were hesitant to say too much about the QB controversy.

"It definitely energized us a little bit having the crowd behind us, but other than that, it was a coach’s decision,” receiver Stephen Hill...
