Farrell on D&H: Pap still one of MLB's best

Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell joined the Dale & Holley show Tuesday afternoon and talked about the much-maligned Boston bullpen. Farrell remains confident that the existing group of relievers can do what's needed to get the Sox back into the AL East race. "Right now, we feel like this is the group that will close the 6 1/2-game game that we're staring at," he said.

 

As for closer Jonathan Papelbon, who blew a save Sunday for the fifth time this season, Farrell said: "While it's easy to point to some of the miscues that might have been there, he's still one of the top three or four closers in the game, and I'd hate to see where we'd be without him."

 

Speaking about Tuesday's night's starter, Josh Beckett, Farrell said the team brought him along slowly and now has no reason to be concerned about his back. "When he goes to the mound, we look at him as if the back issue wasn't there...

Florio on D&C: Jets unlikely to make playoffs

ProFootballTalk.com writer Mike Florio joined the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning and talked about how he sees the AFC East panning out. Florio predicts the Patriots to win the division, with the Dolphins a wild card team. He's not as high on the Jets, despite other prognosticators' lofty predictions.

 

"They're going to have a very difficult season," Florio said of the Jets. "I just don't know that they planned how this all was going to play out. ... I just think it's going to be a very tall order for the New York Jets to be competitive this year. They welcome the bull's-eye that on their backs, and I don't know that that's all going to play very well. They were a mediocre team in November last year, and really into December. I think there's a good chance they don't even make the playoffs."

 

Asked about Jets coach Rex Ryan, Florio said: "We'll see what happens when they hit...

Mashup: Chargers rip LT; Mannywood gone

Former teammates of LaDanian Tomlinson took some shots at the running back as he begins his stint with the Jets. Chargers players implied that Tomlinson had trouble handling his diminished role with San Diego last season. "Sometimes you would get the sense that people felt bigger than the team," tight end Antonio Gates said said. Tomlinson did not return the fire.

 

Also in the news Tuesday, the "Mannywood" sign at Dodger Stadium, a tribute to Manny Ramirez, was replaced with an advertisement. The Dodgers say it was only because they found someone willing to pay for the space, and it was not meant as a slap in the face to their controversial player, who is on the disabled list for the third time this season. The team still is selling Mannywood seats and T-shirts for the left field section, although empty seats there are a regular occurrence.
