Report: Brady had three broken ribs

Bay Area quarterback guru Tom Martinez — who has worked with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady consistently since the signal-caller was a teenager — said Brady had a broken finger and three broken ribs at the end of the 2009 season.

According to an ESPN story, Martinez was summoned to Foxboro last December by Brady for a mechanical tuneup that resulted in a stellar performance for the quarterback. After a Christmas week get-together with Martinez in the Dana Farber Fieldhouse next to Gillette Stadium, Brady threw for 267 yards and four touchdowns on 23-of-26 passing in a win over the Jaguars.

"He had a broken finger and three broken ribs," Martinez told ESPN's Tim Graham, explaining some of the issues that were dogging Brady at the time. "It's one of those things where I can see right away what he's doing. He trusts me, so when I tweak him, it's right back to where he wants to be. Then, at that point,...

Nava-time again as Red Sox edge O's

Daniel Nava's pinch-hit bloop single down the right field line scored Marco Scutaro with the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth as the Red Sox beat the Orioles, 3-2, on Friday night at Fenway Park. J.D. Drew homered twice for Boston's first two runs, his 17th career multi-homer game.

 

Tim Wakefield [3-6] was the beneficiary of the dramatic two-out hit off reliever Will Ohman as the Red Sox knuckleballer went eight strong innings, allowing seven hits and two runs while striking out four for his third win of the season. The game was played in a brisk two hours, seven minutes. 

 

Jonathan Papelbon pitched a perfect ninth for his 19th save of the season as the injury-riddled Red Sox improved to 48-32 and drew to within a half-game of the first-place Yankees in the American League East.
