Bogar to interview for Astros' position

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- According to multiple major league sources, Red Sox bench coach Tim Bogar will interview for the Houston Astros' managerial opening in the coming days. It is not expected that Bogar will be forced to leave the team, with Astros executives planning to conduct the interview in the Tampa Bay area at some point during the Red Sox' four-game series against the Rays.

Bogar declined comment when asked about the interview.

It will be the second time Bogar has interviewed with the Astros, having been one of the candidates prior to the 2011 season. Houston ultimately hired former Red Sox bench coach Brad Mills, who was let go by the Astros on August 18 after compiling a 39-82 record to start the '12 campaign. The 45-year-old Bogar also interviewed for the Blue Jays managerial position following the '10 season before Toronto hired former Sox pitching coach John Farrell.

The Astros have already interviewed Tampa Bay bench coach...

Maddon surprised Crawford didn't work out

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Speaking before his team's series-opening game against the Red Sox, Rays manager Joe Maddon expressed his surprise that Carl Crawford's stay in Boston didn't work out.

"I am," said Maddon when asked if the troubles that came with Crawford's 161-game stint with the Red Sox surprised him. "I know it's was to say CC was unable to handle that, but I thought he would because Carl just loves to play and he plays hard and he works hard. He keeps the blinders on and just stays focused. I didn't think the off the field stuff would bother him that much, because I thought he would be playing well. I thought the fans would embrace his hard-playing style. 

"I never had a problem  with Carl not going after it hard, and I thought the Boston fans would appreciate how hard he went after things, because that's what he did here."

Crawford, who played for Maddon from 2006-10, was dealt to the Dodgers...

Red Sox play spoiler with win over Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Red Sox were able to play the role of spoiler Monday night, knocking the Rays further back in the wild card chase thanks to a 5-2 win over Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field.

The Rays came into the game four games out of the final wild card spot.

Helping key the Red Sox' win was Jacoby Ellsbury, who broke up Alex Cobb's no-hitter with two outs in the sixth inning by blasting a two-run homer over the right fence. The homer, which scored Jose Iglesias, gave the Sox a lead their wouldn't relinquish.

Earning the win for the Red Sox was starter Aaron Cook, who allowed just one run on five hits over six innings, throwing 75 pitches (47 strikes). Cook induced 10 ground outs, and just one fly out.

Coming in to finish things up for the Red Sox were Rich Hlll, Junichi Tazawa, and Mark Melancon. Melancon would be the only reliever to allow a run, surrendering a single score in the ninth.

After scoring the two runs in...

Belichick: Nothing going on with Welker
By: DJ Bean

Patriots coach Bill Belichick made his weekly appearance on The Big Show Monday, discussing amongst other things the team's loss to the Cardinals and receiver Wes Welker. 

Belichick maintained that there is nothing out of the ordinary going on with Welker. The veteran receiver did not start for the Patriots against the Cardinals and didn't have a reception until late in the first half. Welker finished the game with five receptions for 95 yards on 11 targets. 

"I think if you look at Wes' play time over the last five years since he's been here, it's been pretty consistent," Belichick said. "I don't think it's any different now than it has been. It's been pretty consistent."

Asked if he felt Welker's role within the offense has changed, Belichick replied, "no." He also noted that people shouldn't read too much into whether or not a player starts the game.

"I always think it's a lot more...

Maddon: 'Not upset' by Valentine late-gate

ST. PETERSBURG -- Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon said that he was "not upset" by the fact that Red Sox counterpart Bobby Valentine, in a Big Show appearance earlier this month to explain his arrival at the ballpark fewer than three hours before the start of a game in Oakland while caught in traffic after picking up his son from the airport, described Maddon as arriving at the ballpark "everyday at 4 o'clock." 

At the time, Maddon aired his rejoinder via twitter (@RaysJoeMaddon): Apologies to the writers for being late to today's pregame session. My pedicure appointment ran a little late.

"I thought it was pretty funny. I didn't quite understand why I was being treated to such an illustrious moment," Maddon explained on Monday, prior to the game between his Rays and the Red Sox at the Tropicana Dome. "I was not upset. I was not anything. I just thought I needed to throw a little bit of humor out in...
