Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, during the latest installment of his Laser Show segment with the Big Show, suggested that even though he is on schedule in his recovery from foot surgery, he has little interest in taking on Manny Pacquiao in a boxing ring. Pedroia noted that, while he would have a few inches and about 35 pounds on Pac Man, so, too, did Antonio Margarito, the fighter whom Pacquiao dominated over the weekend.
"I haven’t watched boxing in a while, but didn’t the last guy have about three and a half inches and 35 pounds, too?" Pedroia wondered. "I’ve been beat up many times in my life. I’m good. ... Let’s just say I’ve been in my fair share of scuffles and I haven’t won many. [I was] like a chihuahua dog. Bite you in the ankles."
As for his recovery from surgery to insert a pin in his left foot, Pedroia said that he is progressing on...
Minnesota Twins skipper Ron Gardenhire was named the American League Manager of the Year while Padres manager Bud Black took home the honor in the National League. While Gardenhire claimed a healthy margin of victory over second-place finisher Ron Washington of the Rangers in the AL, Black won by a single point over Reds manager Dusty Baker in the NL.
Gardenhire claimed 16 of 28 first-place votes, with Washington claiming 10. Though he did not receive a single first-place vote, Red Sox manager Terry Francona finished in fourth (the third time he has done so as Red Sox skipper) for guiding a club decimated by injuries to an 89-73 record. Though that was not good enough to reach the postseason, the Sox and Francona received high marks from the baseball world this year for competing hard in the face of injuries to key players such as Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis, Victor Martinez, Jacoby Ellsbury, Josh Beckett and Clay Buchholz.
FOXBORO -- For the second straight week, Tom Brady missed Wednesday practice to rest his foot as the Patriots began on-field work in advance of their latest huge game, Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
Brady was nursing a foot injury following the loss in Cleveland on Nov. 7 and did not practice last Wednesday. He was also limited on Thursday and Friday but showed no ill effects during a 39-26 thrashing of the Steelers last Sunday night. Brady had his first 300-yard game, throwing for 350 yards and three touchdowns to Rob Gronkowski while rushing for another.
Also missing from practice again were safety Jarrad Page (calf) and Myron Pryor (back). The team practice in sweats and shells on the upper grass fields outside Gillette.

The guys have even more reaction to Deflategate and if this is actually a showdown between Bill and Roger.
Tom E. Curran calls the boys during his layover in Denver and gets right into the Deflategate craziness. Tom talks about his knowledge of the situation including his thoughts on if the NFL was indeed trying to set up and catch the Pats in the act. He gets into the relationship between Belichick and the league office, Belichick and Kraft and the actual game on Super Bowl Sunday.
Greg and Steve discuss the Deflategate debacle with callers and give their theories as to what went down in Foxboro last week against the Colts. Both guys think that Pats may be guilty of doing something to the balls, but that so do most other teams. Will Belichick and Brady be punished? Not if the NFL doesn't have proof, which it's looking more and more like they don't.

Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly and 3B Pablo Sandoval sat down with Mut and Bradford. Joe Kelly had a few interesting proclamations. First he said that 95% of pitchers use some sort of grip enhancer, and then he said he was going to win the Cy Young. Pablo leaned over and promised 10 HR's, explaining to Joe that the trick is to set the bar low.
