Mashup: Suspended Carcillo yaps about NHL

Dan Carcillo, in his first season with the Blackhawks after proudly serving as an instigator with the Flyers, was suspended two games by the league for a check from behind on Hurricanes defenseman Joni Pitkanen on Friday night. Rob Blake, from the NHL's Department of Player Safety, explained that Carcillo was suspended in part because "he has been fined and suspended multiple times in his NHL career."

Responded Carcillo: "There’s not too much leeway for me in this league. Maybe [I should] give some serious thought into changing my last name or something."

Meanwhile, Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, much like Carcillo, is frustrated with multiple league punishments and apparently believes he is being singled out unfairly. Suh requested a meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and he'll get it on Tuesday. Said Suh when asked what the league doesn't get about him: "I have no clue, that's why we're having...

Brady: 'Poor level of execution all around'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was reserved in his postgame press conference following a 25-17 loss to the Steelers Sunday. The loss was a difficult one for the New England offense, which could not seem to find a rhythm at any point in the game. Brady was held to a season-low 198 yards while the Patriots were dominated by the Steelers in time of possession, 39:22 to 20:38.

"We just didn't execute very well on offense," Brady said. "I don't think we complemented our defense real well. The first quarter, we had an opportunity to go answer their score and we go three-and-out. There were too many three-and-outs. There was just a poor level of execution all around."

The game was not without controversy, as some in the media after the game questioned why coach Bill Belichick opted not to challenge a call in which tight end Rob Gronkowski appeared just barely break the plane for a touchdown that would have made it a 23-17 game with 4:...

Roethlisberger, Steelers get better of Pats

Ben Roethlisberger threw for two touchdowns and engineered five scoring drives of 10 plays or more to lead the Steelers to a 25-17 win over the Patriots Sunday afternoon at Heinz Field.

The Steelers (6-2) jumped on the Pats early, taking a 10-0 lead out of the gate and holding on in the second half to post their fourth win in a row and sixth victory in the last seven games. Meanwhile, the Patriots (5-2) saw a three-game winning streak go by the boards with the defeat, their first loss in Pittsburgh since 2004.

The New England offense was held in check all afternoon, as Tom Brady ended up 24-for-35 for 198 yards and two touchdowns. Brady found Deion Branch for one first-half touchdown and Aaron Hernandez for a second-half score, and the Patriots got a 46-yard field goal at the end of the second quarter from Stephen Gostkowski. But it wouldn't be enough, as the Steelers offense went up and down the field without an issue most of the afternoon....

Red Sox pick up Scutaro's option for '12

The Red Sox have announced they are picking up shortstop Marco Scutaro's $6 million team option for 2012. Scutaro, who turned 36 years old Sunday, also possessed a $3 million player option if the team had declined its option.

Scutaro has been with the Red Sox for the past two seasons after signing a two-year, $12.5 million deal as a free agent prior to the 2010 campaign. He turned in one of his best seasons as a major leaguer in '11 despite playing in just 113 games due to an oblique injury, hitting .299 with a .358 on-base percentage. Scutaro also finished last season with a career-best .423 slugging percentage and .781 OPS. In his two seasons with the Sox, Scutaro has a line of .283/.343/.401/.744.

Despite his age, and injury concerns, Scutaro would have entered the free agent market as perhaps the second-most coveted shortstop behind Jose Reyes. Also factoring into the Red Sox' decision is the need for shortstop prospect Jose Iglesias to get...

Eight Red Sox file for free agency

According to the Major League Baseball Players Association, eight Red Sox were among 148 players to file for free agency Sunday. The list includes Erik Bedard, J.D. Drew, Conor Jackson, Trever Miller, David Ortiz, Jonathan Papelbon, Jason Varitek and Tim Wakefield.

Of the group, Ortiz and Papelbon figure to be Type A free agents -- resulting in the Red Sox receiving two draft picks if the player is offered arbitration, declines it and then signs with another team. Varitek is scheduled to be classified as a Type B free agent, potentially sending one draft pick to the Sox. It was reported Saturday night by WEEI.com that the Red Sox have yet to make a formal contract offer to Papelbon.

Marco Scutaro and Dan Wheeler each have team options the Red Sox have until 11:59 p.m. Monday to decide whether or not to pick up. Scutaro's team option is for $6 million, while Wheeler's option is for $3 million. If the options aren't executed, both would be eligible...
