Wakefield on M&M: 'I'm glad it's finally over'

Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield joined Mut & Merloni Wednesday morning to talk about finally getting his 200th career victory, coming against the Blue Jays Tuesday night.

"I'm glad it's finally over with," Wakefield said. "I wish I could've gotten it done sooner, but it was definitely worth the wait to be able to do it in front of our home crowd and celebrate with them."

It took the knuckleballer eight starts to reach No. 200 after he picked up his 199th victory on July 24. He pitched six innings and gave up five runs on Tuesday against Toronto, but the Red Sox offense erupted in an 18-6 victory that gave Wakefield his milestone. Wakefield acknowledged that the chase for 200 got to him, but he tried to put the team first.

"When you get this late in the season, you always try to take yourself out of the equation and put what's most important first, and that's us winning ballgames," Wakefield said....

Pouliot: I'm on 'right side' of rivalry
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins winger Benoit Pouliot made his first appearance with the team at Wednesday's veterans' practice, sporting No. 67 on his helmet and getting to know his teammates. The former fourth overall pick in 2005, still just 24 years of age, signed a one-year, $1.1 million deal with the B's after a two-yearstint with the Canadiens. 

A fight with David Krejci and an attempted dirty hit on Johnny Boychuk made him a popular Hab for B's fans to hate, but Pouliot hopes that Boston fans can give him a chance.

"The rivalry thing, it's not easy obviously, but I'm a Bruin now," Pouliot said. "They can't see me as a Canadien. I'm a Bruin and that's all that matters. I don't really care what people say about the rivalry and everything, but hey, I'm with the Bruins, I'm on the right side of the rivalry now. They won the Cup last year, so I'm excited." 

Boston becomes the third stop of Pouliot's young, yet well-...

Patriots shuffle roster, add OL Thomas

FOXBORO -- The Patriots announced Wednesday they have signed offensive lineman Donald Thomas to the 53-man roster, while they also released offensive lineman Thomas Welch, signed tight end Garrett Mills and linebacker Jeff Tarpinian to the practice squad, and released linebacker Aaron Lavarias from the practice squad.

Thomas, 6-foot-4, 310 pounds, is a veteran of three NFL seasons with the Dolphins (2008-09) and the Lions (2010). He entered the NFL as a sixth-round draft pick out of UConn in 2008 by Miami. After starting at right guard in the first game of the year as a rookie, he was forced to finish the season on injured reserve due to a foot injury suffered in that game. Thomas started in 12-of-16 games for the Dolphins at right guard in 2009. He was released by Miami prior to the start of the 2010 season and signed with Detroit on Nov. 23, 2010, but was inactive for the final six games of the season. Thomas was released by Detroit on Sept. 3....
