Report: Gonzo, Sox blast Bobby V to owners
By: DJ Bean

According to a report from Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan, angered Red Sox players met with owner John Henry and  team president and CEO Larry Lucchino on the team's July 27 off day to vent their frustrations with manager Bobby Valentine. The meeting was confirmed to have taken place by general manager Ben Cherington. 

Passan, citing sources (Cherington did not divulge details of the meeting), writes that the meeting was called by Boston ownership after first baseman Adrian Gonzalez sent a text message on behalf of himself and "some teammates" that aired their " dissatisfaction with Valentine for embarrassing starting pitcher Jon Lester by leaving him in to allow 11 runs during a July 22 start." Passan adds that "it was the latest incident in a season's worth of bad...

Red Sox trade catcher Shoppach to Mets
By: DJ Bean

According to tweets from both teams, the Red Sox have traded catcher Kelly Shoppach to the Mets in exchange for a player to be named later. The Mets' announcement notes the deal was the result of a waiver claim, meaning the teams consummated a deal within 48 hours of the Mets' claim. A team source confirmed to's Rob Bradford that Shoppach hadn't cleared waivers and that the deal was indeed the result of the Mets' claim. 

Shoppach, who was originally drafted by the Red Sox in the 2001 draft before being dealt to Cleveland in 2006's Coco Crisp trade, was in his second stint with the Sox after signing a one-year, $1.35 million deal in the offseason. In 48 games, the 32-year-old was hitting .250/.327/.471 with five homers and 17 runs batted in.

Pats confirm release of Fletcher, Davis

FOXBORO -- Patriots personnel director Nick Caserio confirmed Tuesday that injured linebacker Dane Fletcher was released as an "injured" player while the team reached an injury settlement before releasing wide receiver Britt Davis. The two moves leaves the roster at 88, two short of the camp maximum.

As per NFL collective bargaining rules, Fletcher's waiver release due to injury means he can be re-instated to the Patriots injured reserve list if he clears waivers while Britt Davis cannot since a settlement was reached in his case. 

The waiver process allows any NFL team to claim Fletcher, who tore the ACL in his left knee on the first punt of Thursday night's preseason opener against the Saints. The Patriots claimed Giants tight end Jake Ballard under similar circumstances after his injury in Super Bowl XLVI. 

"Anytime you remove a player from your roster, you designate them "X" amount of ways,"...

Nomar on Pesky: 'Like a punch to the gut'

Former Red Sox shortstop Nomar Garciaparra was in Boston when he heard about the death of franchise icon Johnny Pesky. "It was like a punch to the gut," Garciaparra said in an interview with Mut & Merloni. 

"Johnny has something very unique in the world," Garciaparra said. "When you're around him, he made you smile."

Garciaparra said that when he came to Boston from California, "I really didn't know what it mean to wear that Red Sox uniform, and that's where Johnny Pesky comes in. He really taught me and taught so many others what it meant to wear that uniform." 

The thing that stood out for him were the stories and the time Pesky would spend with players.

"A gentle man like him and soul that would take the time to not only make you better but also take time aside from that to talk to you," Garciaparra said. "You would it down and just be intrigued by the...
