Tito hopeful Gonzalez won't miss time

Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez left Wednesday's game prior to the top of the seventh inning with what the team described as left calf tightness, just moments after blasting a solo home run into the Red Sox bullpen. The home run was Gonzalez' 26th of the season, but his first at Fenway since July 7. Gonzalez was replaced at first base by Lars Anderson. Gonzalez appeared to be circling the bases slowly after the home run.

"It was definitely not a hydration thing," Gonzalez said after the game. "I did it on the at-bat where I hit the ground ball past the pitcher. I came in after that inning on defense and I told them my calf was pretty tight. I played a couple of innings on defense and it was pretty tight. As I was rounding the bases it got worse as I kept going. They didn't want me to keep going out there and making it worse. Better play it safe than sorry, I guess."

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that Gonzalez's...

Brady backs Ocho: 'No problem' with WR

FOXBORO -- Asked about the comments from former teammate Tedy Bruschi regarding wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said Wednesday that he has “no problems” with Ochocinco “at all.”

“Everyone has an opinion on everything, and none of it really means anything,” Brady said. “The only thing that means anything are the guys in this locker room and what we do every day in practice.”

On Tuesday morning, Ochocinco tweeted about how amazing it was to watch the Patriots’ offensive display Monday night in Miami.  On Tuesday afternoon, Bruschi ripped Ochocinco while on WEEI, saying the wide receiver should “drop the awe factor,” and adding that he should “stop tweeting and get in your playbook.”

“You’re not a fan, all right?” said Bruschi. “You’re not someone who’s on another team or watching...

Marchand signs for two years
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced Wednesday that they have signed forward Brad Marchand to a two-year deal. 

Renaud P. Lavoie of RDS in Canada was the first to report the deal, which is said to be for $5 million. 

Last season, Marchand had 21 goals and 20 assists in the regular season as a rookie. He finished second behind teammate David Krejci in playoff goals with 11. He had been a restricted free agent, meaning that had he not signed this week, it was possible he may have missed part of training camp.

Vollmer returns to practice with Pats

FOXBORO -- The Patriots began their Wednesday afternoon practice session on the lower practice fields behind Gillette Stadium Wednesday afternoon, and the following players were absent: cornerback Leigh Bodden, center Dan Koppen and defensive lineman Mike Wright. Meanwhile, tackle Sebastian Vollmer, who was out of practice late last week (and missed the regular-season opener last Monday against the Dolphins) because of a back problem, returned to practice.

In addition, wide receiver Julian Edelman, safety Ross Ventrone, offensive lineman Matt Kopa and linebacker A.J. Edds were wearing black practice jerseys, denoting the fact that they were named Practice Players of the Week for their work last week in the days leading up to the game against Miami.
