Report: Bradshaw out with broken foot

The Patriots may have caught a break for their upcoming game against the Giants as starting running back Ahmad Bradshaw will reportedly be out indefinitely with a broken bone in his foot. 

The Newark Star-Ledger reports Bradshaw suffered a cracked bone during Sunday's game against the Dolphins, according to someone informed of Bradshaw's health status. The paper says the source requested anonymity because the Giants haven't provided full details on Bradshaw's injury, while adding the fifth-year pro is considering corrective surgery. Bradshaw has had similar issues with both feet and ankles in recent years and has undergone surgery to insert screws into his feet.

This means that Brandon Jacobs will likely get the majority of the carries against the Patriots this Sunday at Gillette Stadium.

Tiant on HOF 'Golden Era' ballot

The Baseball Hall of Fame announced on Thursday that Luis Tiant is one of 10 candidates named to the 'Golden Era' ballot for induction in the Class of 2012.

Any candidate to receive votes on 75 percent of the ballots cast by the 16-member Golden Era Committee will earn election to the Hall of Fame and will be inducted in Cooperstown on July 22, 2012. The voting will take place on Dec. 5.

Tiant pitched for 19 seasons (1964-82), finishing his career with a record of 229-172 with an ERA of 3.30. He pitched for the Red Sox from 1971-78, posting a record of 122-81 with a 3.36 ERA. Tiant won two games for the Sox in the 1975 World Series, tossing a shutout in Game 1 vs. the Reds and a complete game in Game 4.

Tiant debuted on the Hall of Fame ballot in 1988 and received 30.9 percent of the votes, his highest total but well short of the required 75 percent. His final year on the ballot was 2002.

Sources: Francona to interview for Cardinals

Sources told WEEI's John Dennis that Terry Francona will interview for the vacant St. Louis Cardinals managerial position on Friday.

A report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch indicates the Cardinals on Thursday will begin the search for a manager to replace Tony LaRussa. The report has the Cardinals looking at a pool of "less than 10" candidates for the job, a list that includes former Red Sox manager Francona, Ryne Sandberg and Cardinals third base coach Jose Oquendo.    

Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said on Wednesday that there might not be a need for a second round of interviews. The Cardinals hope to name the next manager before the MLB general managers meetings in Milwaukee on Nov. 14.

Mashup: Clemens wants to play again?

Roger Clemens threw a bullpen session in Puerto Rico, and now a newspaper in that country is reporting that Clemens is considering suiting up for Indios de Mayaguez, the team his son Koby is playing for this winter. El Nuevo Dia quotes an unnamed player as saying Clemens "wants to pitch, that's 100 percent sure. I saw his desire to compete again. He was [at] the practice and said he wanted to play with his son."

However, the New York Daily News quotes a source saying that speculation about the 49-year-old returning to the mound is "pure gossip." Clemens last pitched in 2007 with the Yankees. He is due to go on trial in April for lying to Congress about the use of performance-enhancing drugs.

Report: Sox ask to interview Maddux

According to a report from Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated, the Red Sox and Cubs have asked the Rangers for permission to speak to Mike Maddux about the vacant managerial job.

Maddux has been rumored as a candidate for the position since the departure of Terry Francona. The 50-year-old Maddux has been the pitching coach for the last three seasons for the Rangers, taking over a staff that had an AL-worst ERA in 2008. The Rangers have finished eighth, third and fifth in ERA in Maddux's three seasons, with the club winning the AL pennant each of the last two years. Maddux pitched for the Red Sox from 1995-96.
