Not so super: Pats drop preseason finale

EAST RUTHERFORD -- Brian Hoyer was strip-sacked by Adewale Ojomo with under three minutes left in regulation, setting up the game-winning 32-yard field goal from Lawrence Tynes with 1:03 left in the fourth as the Giants beat the Patriots, 6-3, in the preseason finale for both teams. Hoyer was intercepted on the final possession to end the game. 

Tom Brady, Aaron Hernandez, Rob Gronkowski, Vince Wilfork, Logan Mankins, Nate Solder, Jerod Mayo were among those who made the trip to New Jersey and suited up but did not play. Wes Welker, Patrick Chung, Shane Vereen, Stevan Ridley and Brandon Spikes were among the Patriots not spotted in uniform. 

In an ugly reminder of what could be in store for NFL teams starting next Wednesday night in this very same building, replacement referee Don King took over seven minutes to rule on a simple double foul on the Giants following a 62-yard punt by Steve Weatherford in the second quarter. Patriots coach...

Bard: 'It's good to be back' with Red Sox

ANAHEIM -- Daniel Bard was back with the Red Sox Wednesday, with the team slated to activate the pitcher to the 25-man roster Thursday.

"It's good to be back," Bard said prior to the Red Sox' game against the Angels at Angels Stadium. "It took some patience, but I'm glad to finally get the call."

Bard had been pitching with Triple-A Pawtucket since being demoted from the Red Sox June 5. Pitching in relief for the PawSox, the righty appeared in 31 games, totaling a 7.03 ERA in 32 innings. Bard struck out 32 and walked 29, with opponents hitting .254 against him.

As a starter for the Red Sox earlier in the season, Bard went 5-6 with a 5.24 ERA in 11 appearances (10 starts). In 55 innings he struck out 34 and walked 37, allowing 52 hits.

"I think it was trying to morph myself into a starter too much, trying to change, throw my changeup, frontdoor cutters, backdoor sinkers, just trying to do things I hand't done...

Bobby V: Won't insult Sox with 2013 inquiries

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, in his weekly appearance on WEEI's Big Show, suggested that he felt no need to seek "assurances" from team officials or ownership regarding his status for 2013, the second year of the two-year contract he signed last December.

"I never approached the Red Sox to get this job, and I wouldn't insult them by thinking that there's some timetable in my life that they needed to adhere to," said Valentine, before contemplating again the notion of why he would ask for such a guarantee. "What for? Assurance? I will live my life to the fullest every day of my life."

Valentine, who has managed a Red Sox team that is now 62-68, said that he did not think the fact that the Sox are now out of contention -- and using the duration of the season in no small part to evaluate players' potential contributions beyond 2012 -- will affect how he is judged.

"If I'm going to be here in the...

Reports: Replacement refs to work Week 1
By: DJ Bean

According to multiple reports, the NFL has told all 32 teams that replacement officials will work the first week of the season. This comes after a preseason that has been officiated by replacements due to prolonged negotiations between the league and the NFL Referees' Association. 

"In light of the current state of negotiations, we will have replacement crews on the field when the regular season begins," NFL executive vice president Ray Anderson wrote in a memo to the teams. "The replacements have undergone extensive training and evaluation, and have shown steady improvement during the preseason. We will continue the training with each crew and they will work as much of the regular season as necessary."

The season will begin next Wednesday, with the Giants hosting the Cowboys for the...

Report: Sox won't claim Twins' Mauer

According to a report from Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Twins placed catcher Joe Mauer on waivers but the Red Sox are unlikely to make a play for the 29-year-old who has more than $142 million remaining on his contract. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman tweeted definitively that the Sox will not claim Mauer.

Writes Rosenthal:

Mauer, 29, has about $142.5 million remaining on his contract, including $138 million from 2013 to ’18. The Sox are unlikely to take on that much money so soon after busting out of payroll jail, according to a source with knowledge of the club’s thinking. But they should be tempted to claim Mauer before his waivers expire at 1 p.m. ET Wednesday, don’t you think?
