PawSox manager Lovullo joins Blue Jays

Torey Lovullo, who managed the Red Sox' Triple-A affiliate in 2010, will join the staff of Blue Jays manager John Farrell to serve as a first base coach in 2011. Lovullo and Farrell have a lengthy history, as Lovullo managed in the Indians organization for eight years, including four when Farrell was the head of the Cleveland farm system.

 

Lovullo is widely viewed as an excellent candidate for a future big league managing gig. The PawSox went 66-78 under his watch this year, but several players -- Felix Doubront, Ryan Kalish, Lars Anderson and Yamaico Navarro -- made their big league debuts.

Daubach to manage Nats' Single A team

Former Red Sox first baseman Brian Daubach has been hired by the Washington Nationals to manage their Single-A team, the Hagerstown Suns, in the Single-A South Atlantic League, the same league as the Red Sox' affiliate Greenville Drive. Daubach managed the Pittsfield Colonials of the independent Canadian-American Association of Professional Baseball last season, having previously served as the manager for the American Defenders. Daubach could end up managing the top pick in MLB's 2010 June amateur draft, Bryce Harper, who is currently hitting .348 for the Scottsdale Scorpions of the Arizona Fall League.

Meriweather on D&H: Nobody showed up

Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show on Monday, and he was blunt in answering why the team lost to the Browns on Sunday. "They came to play. We didn't. There's nothing else you can say," Meriweather said. "They executed in all three phases of the game, we didn't."

 

Meriweather echoed his teammates' sentiment in saying the team had a bad week of practice, which influenced Sunday's outcome. "It was a bad week of practice all the way around," Meriweather said, before emphasizing that it is not a valid excuse. "I do think that you have to be a professional about it and know that that's what you get paid to do, and that's your job. And I don't know, nobody on our team came to do that."

 

Meriweather said that the team knows when practice is sluggish even without the coaches screaming. "You...

Chiarelli: Krejci's concussion 'moderate'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON — Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli offered an update on top-line center David Krejci on Monday, saying the concussion Krejci suffered in overtime on Saturday is "moderate" on a mild-moderate-severe scale. 

 

Chiarelli noted that the only symptoms shown by Krejci following the hit were a headache and some amnesia, and that there was no loss of consciousness. The Bruins have been encouraged by how Krejci has felt in the last two days and that he will be re-evaluated on Tuesday. Chiarelli didn't feel the play in which Krejci was injured, a collision with Blues forward T.J. Oshie that led to him hitting his head against the boards, was malicious in nature.

 

"I had no issue with the hit," Chiarelli said, deeming the play an "incidental hit."

Wilfork on D&H: 'Can't hit the panic button'

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork made his weekly Patriots Monday appearance on the Dale & Holley show Monday morning to talk about Sunday's 34-14 loss to the Browns.

 

"A high school probably could have beaten us yesterday," Wilfork said. "You know what, it started at practice. We went all week with mistakes where we shouldn't have been making mistakes. Things that we were doing, we shouldn't have been doing it. That's the way we played, mistake after mistake, being out of position, not being able to tackle."

 

Despite the loss, Wilfork cautioned people not to overreact. "We're 6-2," he said. "Trust, me, I'm pretty sure the Cleveland Browns would want to be 6-2. There's a lot of teams out there that want to be 6-2. We can't hit the panic button and go into a frenzy. We just fix what needs to be fixed. And there are a lot of things that need to be fixed from yesterday."...
