Mashup: Tebow for public office?

In Wednesday's Morning Mashup, we have a hilarious video of a fan making, um, inappropriate gestures before getting kicked out of the ballpark, the sad story of Vince Young's financial woes, and Tim Tebow's political future.

Yes, you read that last part right. 

The most famous backup quarterback ever in the history of the world had a Q&A with ESPN New York. And you know what? I came out of it liking Tim Tebow more. He listens to Frank Sinatra, signed his first autograph at the age of 15, and just has the intangible IT factor. (Yes, even in  print. No easy feat.) The headline, however, will be his answer when asked about a future in politics.

I haven't ruled it out. Whatever avenue I feel like I can make a difference in, I'd love to do. I haven't ruled out anything like that. It won't be anytime soon in my future, but it'll be something I'll at least look at and consider one day.

He'll be the most talked about...

Red Sox add to Rays' woes with win

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Red Sox improved to 4-1 on their road trip, claiming a 7-5 win over the Rays on Tuesday night at Tropicana Field. The game took four hours and nine minutes to complete.

Tampa Bay, which came into the game five games out in the wild card chase, has lost seven of its last eight games.

The Sox fought back from an early 3-0 deficit, which was put up by the Rays thanks to three walks and one hit in their three-run third inning. It would be the only time Tampa Bay would score against Red Sox starter Felix Doubront, who finished his six-inning stint by allowing just one hit while striking out five, walking five and throwing 101 pitches (56 strikes).

The Red Sox started their comeback with a run in the fourth inning -- coming on James Loney's RBI single. They added two more in the fifth via Jacoby Ellsbury's run-scoring hit and a sacrifice fly off the bat of Dustin Pedroia.

The visitors took the lead for good in...

PawSox blown out in Triple-A title game

The Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox, who won the International League's Governor's Cup title last week, suffered a 10-3 blowout loss to the Reno Aces (the Triple-A affiliate of the Diamondbacks) in the one-game Triple-A championship game. 

Right-hander Nelson Figueroa, the winning pitcher for the PawSox in three straight clinching games (a playoff berth and both the first and second rounds of the Governor's Cup playoff series), was shelled for six runs on seven hits in two innings, including a two-run homer in the first by Brent Clevlen. 

Though the PawSox drew seven walks against Aces starter Trevor Bauer (who lasted 4 2/3 innings), they were just 1-for-12 on the night with runners in scoring position, allowing Bauer to yield just two runs. PawSox second baseman Tony Thomas hit a solo homer, while outfielder Che-Hsuan Lin went 1-for-3 with two walks while driving in the other two PawSox runs. 

First baseman Andy LaRoche and...

Middlebrooks begins throwing program

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- For the first time since suffering a fractured wrist on Aug. 10, Will Middlebrooks was able to play catch, tossing with the team's medical staff prior to the Red Sox' game against the Rays at Tropicana Field Tuesday.

"I came in and at this point we knew the fracture is healed, we had been doing a lot of stretching and I felt good so I said, 'Let's go toss.' So we went out and tossed a little bit, just about 60 feet," said the Red Sox third baseman. "It felt fine, just a little tight and a bit awkward. It has been six weeks."

Middlebrooks also felt good enough Tuesday to pick up a bat, although actual swings are still a ways away.

"I grabbed a bat a few days ago and it was pretty sore and I thought, 'OK, not the right time,' " said Middlebrooks, who just started strengthening exercises for his wrist Sunday. "But today I grabbed it and it was  a lot better. It's still not good,...

Valentine: 'I hope it works well for [Bogar]'

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Prior to the Red Sox' game against the Rays on Tuesday night at Tropicana Field, manager Bobby Valentine acknowledged bench coach Tim Bogar would be interviewing for the Astros managerial job in the Tampa area Wednesday.

"Well that's what he wanted during the winter -- that's what his dream was, to get the exposure with us so he could get noticed by other teams. … I hope it works well for him," Valentine said.

Also when meeting with the media prior to the game, Valentine revealed that John Lackey was scheduled to throw an intrasquad game in Fort Myers on Sunday.

For Lackey, who underwent Tommy John surgery Nov. 1, it will likely be the the last time he throws prior to taking time off in the offseason. The righty threw a simulated game at Tropicana Field earlier in the day Tuesday, tossing a total of 30 pitches.

"He said afterwards he felt really good," Valentine said. "He threw...
