Joe Vitt: Pats are 'Microsoft' of the NFL

FOXBORO -- After the first of two joint practices in advance of their preseason game Thursday night at Gillette Stadium, interim Saints coach Joe Vitt and Patriots coach Bill Belichick exchanged compliments of each other's organizations. Vitt went as far as to call the Patriots "the Microsoft of the NFL" as a model franchise. Belichick was humbled by the praise.

"We just try to go out and work hard and get better every day," Belichick said. "We know there are a lot of other great organizations and teams and players and coaches out there. So, it's a good challenge every week. Certainly, the Saints are one of the top teams in professional football. They're well-coached, have great talent, good players, good schemes. They win a lot of games. 

"We played against them two years ago, practiced against them two years ago in their championship season so there isn't any team really that we have more respect for than the...

No surgery for Atchison; return possible

Red Sox reliever Scott Atchison, on the disabled list since mid-July due to a strained forearm and then elbow, received what he deemed as "good news" when he saw Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla., on Monday. Andrews told Atchison that the tear of his ulnar collateral ligament appeared to be a pre-existing condition that he may have been pitching with for years, and that his acute elbow discomfort during a recent rehab game in Triple-A Pawtucket represented a normal (and potentially manageable) situation rather than a sudden change in the tear that would require surgery.

As such, Andrews told the reliever, season-ending Tommy John surgery may be avoidable. For now, the 36-year-old will rest for a period of weeks before potentially commencing a throwing program that could have him back pitching for the Red Sox sometime this year. Atchison said that he was "very optimistic" about the possibility that he will pitch again this season....

Lineup: Middlebrooks to sit vs. Dempster
By: DJ Bean

Will Middlebrooks will sit Tuesday as the Red Sox host the Rangers in the second game of a three-game set at Fenway Park. Taking the mound for Boston is Jon Lester, who is coming off one of his most promising starts of the season in the form of an eight-inning performance in which he allowed three earned runs and fanned seven against the Twins last week. 

Countering for the Rangers is Ryan Dempster, who is making his second start for Texas since being acquired from the Cubs prior to the trade deadline. Dempster lasted just 4 2/3 innings but picked up an improbable win in an outing that saw him yield eight earned runs to the Angels. 

1. Jacoby Ellsbury,CF

2. Carl Crawford, LF

3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B

4. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B

5. Cody Ross, DH

Beckett: Sox 'exact opposite' of dysfunctional
By: DJ Bean

A cheerful Josh Beckett joined WAAF's Hill Man Morning Show Tuesday to discuss his situation with the Red Sox and the upcoming sixth annual Beckett Bowl. 

Following are highlights of the interview. For the complete transcript of baseball and Red-Sox related questions, click here. To hear the complete interview, click here

On whether he feels he's misunderstood by fans and media: 

"I think for me, I'm just me. I don't pay too much mind to when people have their opinions about it. I'm not going to change and I think sometimes that's kind of what the media outlets want you to do here. They want you to be who they want you to be instead of just who you are. I'm just me, and I have a really good support group around me. As long as I don't do anything to piss my wife off, I'll be OK...
