Remy on D&C: Put it on the 'pen

Jerry Remy joined Dennis & Callahan Wednesday morning to talk about what went wrong with the 2010 Red Sox and what their plan might be for the future. "It's been surprising," Remy said of the Sox pitchers. "I expected they would be one of the top three teams in the league pitching-wise and they're around seventh or eighth. A lot of that is out of the bullpen. The bullpen has been very disappointing. Guys like [Ramon] Ramirez and [Hideki] Okajima. They just didn't do their job this year. When you look back at this whole thing in another month, you're going to have to take injuries into consideration. They were never able to put a healthy team on the field all season long. With that said, would this team have been good enough to compete with [New York and Tampa], even healthy? I think they would have been."

 

Even accounting for the injuries, Remy feels that the set-up relievers have been the biggest problem. "...

Brady on D&C: 'I love being here'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning, in the wake of reports that he is about to sign a new contract with the team. Brady refused repeated requests to discuss the status of his negotiations but made it clear how he feels about the team.

 

"There's always communication happening with the team, for, going on my 11th year. I've been communicating with them a lot about a lot of things," Brady said. "It's pretty uncomfortable actually talking about a contract because I know how coach [Bill] Belichick feels talking about it and how Mr. [Robert] Kraft does and Jonathan [Kraft] does. I don’t want to get into it. For me, it’s the same as it’s been. I’m trying to find a way to score some touchdowns against the Bengals. I didn’t spend five minutes yesterday thinking about my contract or my future. I thought about how we’re going to...

Red Sox' two-year offer surprised Martinez

Speaking prior to the Red Sox' 14-5 loss to the Rays Tuesday night at Fenway Park, Victor Martinez addressed his impending contract negotiations, which unexpectedly (for Martinez) kicked off with the Sox offering a two-year deal.

 

"That's a business part of the game," he told WEEI.com regarding the offer. "They're trying to do one thing, and we'll see what happens. I don't really have to do it. They came with something, and that might just be where the negotiations start. But I don't see myself signing a two-year deal. I'm young enough (31). I work hard and I give it all. I just want to be treated fair."

 

Martinez explained that he is feeling no stress in regard to the uncertainty that looms as he draws closer to becoming a free agent for the first time in his career, partially because he...

Daisuke: 'I can only really apologize'

Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka took full responsibility for his team's 14-5 drubbing at the hands of the Tampa Bay Rays, a defeat that left the Sox virtually conceding the postseason to the Yankees and Rays. After matching a career-high by permitting eight runs in 4 2/3 innings -- a performance that snapped a career-high run of 16 straight starts in which he'd allowed four earned runs or fewer, the right-hander made no excuses.

 

"I knew very well that this was a critical game as far as our chances of advancing to the playoffs. so to allow what happened to happen so early in the game, I can really only apologize to my teammates and my fans," said Matsuzaka (9-5). "On a day like today, I didn’t have any life or bite or command on my pitches. I’m sure [catcher Victor Martinez] felt there wasn’t anything he could try and do either."
