Belichick on Faulk: 'What's there not to like?'

Bill Belichick met with the media Wednesday and was asked about the loss of running back Kevin Faulk, who tore an ACL in his right knee during Sunday's defeat to the Jets and will miss the rest of the 2010 season.

 

"I think I’m pretty lucky that he was here when I got here, so I’ll take that one," said Belichick of Faulk, the Patriots' longest-tenured player. "Kevin is a good football player. He’s smart. He’s tough. He’s got good skills, good running skills, good catching skills. He’s a good decision maker. Most of all, I think he’s very coachable and really cares about the game, his teammates and his team. What’s there not to like about Kevin Faulk?"

Bowden plans return to 'pen in '11

Red Sox pitcher Michael Bowden, who has a 5.25 ERA out of the bullpen this season, will join Magallanes of the Venezuelan Winter League following the conclusion of this season. The right-hander is hopeful that he will get about 15 appearances out of the bullpen for Magallanes this winter as he prepares to work once again out of the bullpen in 2011.

 

While the right-hander had been developed as a starter over most of his six professional seasons, he is now looking forward to refining his work as a reliever, a role that he anticipates remaining in for next season and perhaps beyond.

 

“As of now, I’m going to winter ball to work on getting repetitions in the bullpen for next year,” said Bowden. “The plan as of now is to be a reliever [in 2011]."

 

For more on Bowden's thoughts about both winter ball and relieving,...

Francona on D&H: 'Realistic' with Ellsbury

Red Sox manager Terry Francona made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday and talked about his point of view now that his team's chances for the postseason are an afterthought. "Where we've played ourselves into kind of a longshot, I think we have an obligation — I don't care if we're 20 games out — we have an obligation to try to win as many games as we can," Francona said. "Now, you might use some younger guys in doing that, and do some balancing for the organization. But we always have an obligation to try to play the game right. That will never change."

 

Asked about Jacoby Ellsbury, Francona said: "We're trying to be pretty realistic with where we're at. We tried numerous times to get him out there. The last time when it didn't work, it was pretty obvious that we needed to shut him down. ... I don't know if he would be able to play or not. I do know that by finally sitting back...
