Report: Patriots acquire WR Greg Salas

The Patriots have acquired wide receiver Greg Salas from the Rams for a late-round pick in 2015, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Salas, 24, spent the 2011 season with St. Louis, where he caught 27 passes for 264 yards in six games. The 6-foot-1, 209-pounder was a fourth-round pick out of Hawaii, and does have some experience with the New England system, as he worked with Josh McDaniels last season in St. Louis when McDaniels was the Rams' offensive coordinator.

Report: Pats add Tennant to 53-man roster

The Patriots have signed former Boston College offensive lineman Matt Tennant to the 53-man roster, according to Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe. The 25-year-old Tennant was a fifth-round pick of the Saints in 2010, and it's believed that the 6-foot-5, 300-pounder can play either guard or center.

As a collegian, he was an honorable mention All-ACC performer as a senior, and he earned second team All-America honors by the Walter Camp Foundation. Despite Tommy John surgeries on both elbows (one in 2008 as a collegian, the other in 2004 as a high schooler in Ohio), he was a mainstay at center for Boston College for three seasons, starting 40 straight games for the Eagles since winning the job prior to the 2007 season.

The last two seasons with the Saints, he's played in 28 regular-season games with no starts.

Werner declines comment on Bobby V in '13

Red Sox chairman Tom Werner, in an interview with the Boston Globe, took stock of the disappointments of the 2012 (and, indeed, 2010-12) Red Sox. While he addressed numerous topics, Werner declined to address whether the team wanted to retain manager Bobby Valentine in 2013, the second season of his two-year contract signed last December.

“I don’t really want to get into that today,” Werner told the Globe when asked of ownership's evaluation of the manager. “I don’t want to talk too much about him. But he’s had a challenging year. I think, as we’ve said before, he’s doing a good job.”

Asked if Valentine would return in 2013, Werner did not offer a direct response.

“I don’t really want to go there,...

Humiliation: Sox suffer epic blowout

The Athletics proved merciless in their destruction of the Red Sox pitching staff, amassing 19 hits -- including five homers -- en route to a 20-2 romp over the Sox in Oakland. The 20-run yield was the largest by the Sox since Aug. 21, 2009, against the Yankees. The 18-run margin of defeat was the largest that the Sox had endured since a 22-1 loss to the Yankees in 2000.

An Oakland offense that is typically among the most anemic in the majors exploded for its highest run total since plating 23 in Texas in 2000. The eruption started early against Aaron Cook, who lasted just 2 2/3 innings while permitting six runs on seven hits. Things got little better from that point, particularly in a nine-run seventh inning in which the A's teed off on former Oakland pitcher Craig Breslow (1/3 inning, five runs (four earned), three hits, walk) and Mark Melancon, who was charged with four runs while giving up a walk and three hits, the most notable of which was a grand...
