Millar on M&M: Sox need more 'passion'

MLB Network analyst Kevin Millar joined Mut & Merloni on Friday to talk about the Red Sox. Millar weighed in on last week's blockbuster trade with the Dodgers, calling it "crazy."

Said Millar: "My first thought on that whole thing was, 'Wow.' The bottom line is that they basically thought that this team is not winning and hasn't won, and there's some players with good stats and good old blah, blah, blah. It all comes back to being a team. It's going to be good for both sides."

Millar said he expects the Red Sox to pay more attention to a player's compatability before jumping into free agency again.

"To me, personally, J.D. Drew doesn't have the makeup," Millar said of the former Sox right fielder. "I'm looking for a player that has makeup -- that tough baseball player mentality. That's all we had in that 2003, '04, '05 situation: Billy Mueller, Mark Bellhorn -- those are makeup guys. Those aren't the...

Goodell e-mails fans: 'No place for bounties'

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell e-mailed a letter to fans Friday in which he made clear the league's stance against bounties such as those that led to suspensions for members of the Saints this offseason.

"Let me be clear: There is no place for bounties in football," Goodell wrote. "No exceptions. No excuses. Bounties are an affront to everything that competitive sports should represent."

Asked by a reporter what prompted the letter, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said: "We made a commitment to ensure that everyone, including fans, understands the importance of the bounty rule and its role in player safety. The e-mail is part of that commitment."

Following is the text of Goodell's letter.

The 2012 NFL regular season is about to begin, and it promises to be another exciting, competitive, and unpredictable year of football which NFL fans have come to expect every season.

Fletcher ACL surgery set for next week

FOXBORO -- Patriots linebacker and special teams player Dane Fletcher said Friday that he will have surgery on his injured left knee next week. The linebacker tore his ACL during the team's preseason opener on Aug. 9 against the Saints during punt coverage. Fletcher was immediately placed on injury waivers by the team and cleared before the team claimed him back 24 hours later and placed him on injured reserve. 

Fletcher was in the Patriots locker room with a black wrap around the injured knee and said he is getting treatment in advance of the procedure next week. 

"I dig [football]," said Fletcher, who is in the final year of his three-year, $1.225 million deal. “I’m still waiting to have surgery. I’m coming along good, as good as you can so far. We’ll see. You just don’t know. It doesn’t ever to make a lot of sense for another team – in my circumstance – to pick me up. This...

Fan falls to death at Texans game

A 25-year-old man fell to his death while goofing around on an escalator during Thursday night's Texans-Vikings preseason game at Houston's Reliant Stadium.

Jonathan Kelly, reportedly under the influence of alcohol, was trying to slide down the outside of the handrail of the escalator on the stadium's northeast side when he fell about 60 feet and landed on pavement, police said.

A fan told the Houston Chronicle that the incident occurred during the third quarter and he "heard a very loud noise when he hit the ground." Other fans were near where the man landed, but there were no other reports of physical injuries.

Police termed the death "accidental" and said the investigation continued Friday morning.
