Taylor again missing from Pats practice

FOXBORO -- Running back Fred Taylor was once again not at the open portion of Patriots practice on Thursday as the team continues to prepare for the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium. 

 

Taylor has not practiced the last several weeks since injuring his toe in the team's last home game - against the Buffalo Bills on Sept. 26. The team practiced in shorts and shells on the upper practice fields outside Gillette.

Baldinger on D&H: 'The fear factor is gone'

NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger joined Dale & Holley to talk about the Patriots matchup with the Ravens this Sunday and what the loss of Randy Moss will mean to New England's offense. "The thing about Randy, obviously, is his reputation was the deep ball threat," Baldinger said. "It was real. Brandon Tate and Deion Branch and Julian Edelman and Wes Welker, the group that they have there, no one gives them that presence. The fear factor is gone from that offense."

 

"They had a great margin for error. If you want to lay the ball up there and let [Moss] run and go get it, those days are over," Baldinger continued. "They don't have a player like that." Baldinger thinks that the Patriots will go to a ball-control offense without Moss, which will help keep their young defense off the field. "You can keep those guys off the field a little bit, win the time of possession battle," he said....

Ference, Seidenberg return to Bruins practice
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- A day after both players left the ice early, defensemen Andrew Ference and Dennis Seidenberg returned to Bruins practice on Thursday at Ristuccia Arena.

 

Ference had recently received a cortisone shot in his thumb and was advised by doctors not to shoot pucks. As a result, he skated prior to practice on Wednesday but left the ice before the skate began. Seidenberg, meanwhile, left Wednesday's practice after half an hour with what coach Claude Julien said was either a touch of the flu or food poisoning. 

 

The Bruins, 1-1 on the season, will play their third game on Saturday when they travel to New Jersey to square off with the Devils.

Mashup: 'Best teams for the buck'

Forbes magazine has a list of baseball's "Best Teams for the Buck." The Padres, who recorded 90 wins with a payroll of just $37.8 million (29th in MLB), top the list, with the Rangers and Rays close behind. The Red Sox did not make the cut.

 

Also in baseball news, former Rangers managing partner George W. Bush is enjoying the team's success this fall. The New York Times has some interesting anecdotes about Bush's time leading the Rangers, collected from other owners and former commissioner Fay Vincent.

 

Read about those stories and others, plus, videos, trivia and more, at Thursday's Morning Mashup.

Billick: Moss' absence will challenge Pats

On his regularly scheduled appearance on The Dennis & Callahan Show, FoxSports analyst Brian Billick predicted that the absence of Randy Moss will make things appreciably more challenging for Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Wes Welker.

 

"I guarantee Tom Brady and Wes Welker's life just got a lot more difficult because they don't have that vertical stretch," Billick said. He later went on to suggest that, in regard to Moss no longer being an option, "You take one of those pieces away, it changes the dynamic. You take away the vertical threat, it changes the dynamic."

 

Billick, who coached Moss when the wideout was a rookie in Minnesota (saying he never had any problems with the former No. 1 pick), didn't hazard a guess as to what the Patriots were going to do now that the they were without their Pro-Bowler. "I'm going to be very interested in the approach they take without...
