Report: Brady car in accident was loaner

According to the Boston Globe, the car in which Tom Brady was involved in an accident in early Thursday morning was on loan from the nonprofit group, 'Best Buddies International, Inc.,' and is one of a few cars Audi supplies to the organization. The car Brady was driving (which had New Jersey plates) was an Audi S8 sedan, which typically costs approximately $97,000. Speaking to ESPN.com, Patriots owner Bob Kraft said, "He was saying how the thump he took was not unlike getting hit on the field here. He arched and prepared himself and we're just lucky with the glass and angles. We have a lot to be thankful for. It was really a miracle." WEEI's Dennis & Callahan Show was first to report news of Brady's accident. For more Patriots coverage see the team page at weei.com/patriots.

Lowell confirms he will retire at season's end

After insinuating that this would be his last season, Mike Lowell told the Boston Herald that he will be ending his 13-year big league career at the conclusion of the 2010 season. "I'm retiring," he told The Herald. "I just don't want to make it a song and dance because I don't think that's necessary, but if someone needs something official, yeah, I'm going to retire. This is going to be my last year."

 

Lowell had first hinted at retirement in the Red Sox' initial road series of the season, in Kansas City, and then again at various times over the last two months. He had referenced how he was looking forward to spending more time with his two young children, and that the time he spent at home just prior to, and during, the All-Star break helped give the 36-year-old an idea of what he...

Lackey can't hold lead, Sox lose to A's

John Lackey suffered his 10th loss of the season, giving up three runs in the seventh inning, as the Red Sox dropped a 4-3 decision to the A's Saturday night in Oakland. Lackey, who hadn't succumbed to double-digit losses since 2006, allowed just two hits prior to giving up four hits in the pivotal seventh. Red Sox reliever Daniel Bard allowed the A's to claim an insurance run in the eighth when Jack Cust singled in Coco Crisp. Hideki Okajima came on for Bard with two outs in the eighth, getting out of a bases-loaded jam by inducing a ground out to third by pinch-hitter Matt Carson.

 

The Sox closed the gap to a run in the ninth when Victor Martinez ripped a two-out double off Oakland closer Andrew Bailey, and then proceeded to score on Adrian Beltre's bloop into center field, which put the third baseman in scoring position. But David Ortiz, pinch-hitting for Mike Lowell, took a called third strike on a full-count fastball to end the game....

Padres owner: Gonzalez won't be traded

San Diego Padres principal owner Jeff Moorad told Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com that the Padres will not be trading Adrian Gonzalez this offseason. The first baseman, who has long been of interest to the Red Sox, will become a free agent following the 2011 season if he does not sign an extension with the Padres. Rosenthal quoted Moorad as saying, "It's a foregone conclusion that he will be back with the team." 

 

Rosenthal reports that is still uncertain what will transpire after this offseason, with the 28-year-old most likely looking at something closer to Mark Teixeira's deal (8 years, $180 million) rather than a three-year contract with the same relative annual average.

 

Gonzalez is currently hitting .305 with a .394 on-base percentage, .512 slugging and 27 home runs. 

 

See below for Rosenthal's report:
