Source: Sox interested in Pirates' Hanrahan

A major league source confirmed to WEEI.com on Friday that the Red Sox are interested in trading for Pirates closer Joel Hanrahan. The source also confirmed the fact that, as previously reported by The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo, the Sox are not willing to part with Felix Doubront or other top prospects.

The source indicated the Sox would be amenable to including a major league piece or pieces in the deal, but the mention of Doubront or a similarly highly regarded youngster would be a conversation-killer.

Hanrahan, 31, had 36 saves with a 2.72 ERA and 1.274 WHIP in 2012, one year after recording 40 saves with a 1.83 ERA and 1.049 WHIP. In his six-year career (the first 2 1/2 years of which were spent with the Nationals), Hanrahan is 22-17 with 96 saves, a 3.74 ERA and a 1.387 WHIP in 353 appearances covering...

Perfect attendance for Patriots practice

FOXBORO -- The Patriots had perfect attendance Friday for their final practice for the Jaguars Sunday in Jacksonville. Tom Brady returned on Thursday while linebacker Mike Rivera (ankle) returned on Friday for the workout in sweats and shells inside Dana-Farber Field House. 

The team moved the practice indoors as heavy rain and winds pelted Gillette Stadium and the outdoor practice fields. 

Rob Gronkowski was in attendance for a fourth straight practice despite a Boston Globe report that he will miss his fifth straight game on Sunday as he heals from the broken left forearm.

Report: Gronk won't play against Jacksonville

FOXBORO -- Despite his perfect attendance this week at practice, Rob Gronkowski will miss his fifth straight game this Sunday against the Jaguars, according to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe. 

Young reported Friday that a league source indicated that Gronkowski will miss the game as he continues to recover from a broken left forearm that required surgery after the Nov. 18 game against the Colts. 

Gronkowski has been limited in practice since re-joining the team on Dec. 14 for a practice inside Gillette Stadium. He was seen talking with trainers and coach Bill Belichick during the portion of practice that was open to the media on Friday inside Dana-Farber Field House. 

Despite missing the last four games, Gronkowski still leads the Patriots in touchdown receptions with 10 and is tied with Stevan Ridley for the overall TD lead on the team.

Piecoro: Drew 'a good gamble' for Sox

Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic, in an interview on WEEI's Red Sox Hot Stove show, discussed the Red Sox' recent acquisition of shortstop Stephen Drew, who agreed with the team on a one-year, $9.5 million deal for the 2013 season. Piecoro said that he was a bit surprised at the dollars the Sox conferred upon Drew -- who was a first-round pick of the Diamondbacks in 2004 and played with them until being traded to the Athletics in August -- but that ultimately, he believes the move is a strong one for the Sox. 

"It’s a little higher than I thought," said Piecoro, who suggested that at the start of the offseason he might have expected Drew to receive a deal for roughly $6 million or $7 million a year. "I thought that was a little steep, but nine and a half [million dollars] isn’t what it used to be. I think that it’s a good gamble for the Red Sox."

Piecoro said that Drew never had "a full six...

Lombardi on D&C: Jets will be worse in 2013

NFL Network analyst Mike Lombardi made his weekly appearance on Dennis & Callahan and talked about the Patriots' outlook as well as the struggling Jets and their future.

Lombardi took a positive approach to the Patriots' 41-34 loss to the 49ers on Sunday, a game in which New England trailed by 28 points in the second half before rallying to tie the score.

"In the past when teams have tried to play the Patriots in a certain style -- like the Jets did in the [January 2011] playoff game -- the Patriots didn't seem to have an answer for it," Lombardi said. "I think they did have an answer for it [Sunday night]. It took a little while. Maybe the lights were too bright for some of the young players, and they turned the ball over way too much. But once they got into a groove, once they got comfortable, they got themselves back to 31-31. … I think what you saw was a Patriot offensive attack that can score rapidly, that has mental...
