Mashup: Manuel lashes out at Torre

After learning that outgoing Dodgers manager Joe Torre publicly admitted to having interest in the Mets managerial job that undoubtedly will become open after this season, current Mets manager Jerry Manuel criticized Torre and questioned his integrity. It doesn't help Manuel that the underachieving Mets were eliminated from playoff contention on the same day he blasted the apologetic Torre.

 

Meanwhile, even in death, George Steinbrenner is controversial. His newly unveiled plaque at Yankee Stadium's Monument Park is substantially larger than those around it. A number of people have started to complain about that Steinbrenner's tribute should not dwarf those for Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle and other Yankees legends.

Papelbon: 'I thought I threw the ball well'

Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon allowed four runs on five hits in the ninth inning of his team's 9-1 loss to the Orioles on Tuesday. After the game, Papelbon acknowledged that the mindset of entering a game with his team down by four runs was different than a save situation.

 

At the same time, he suggested that he did not feel like he threw the ball poorly. Papelbon dismissed the suggestion that his struggles had anything to do with a one-week layoff since his last outing on Sept. 14.

 

I don’t think it was rusty from not pitching in a week. I thought I went out there and threw some pretty good pitches. I thought my delivery was pretty good. I thought I threw the ball well. I thought the ball came out of my hand well. The outcome wasn’t good, but I thought the way I threw the ball was [good],” said Papelbon. “If you look at the situation in the ballgame that we’re in, it is...

Report: Season over for Faulk

FOXBORO -- Kevin Faulk is expected to be placed on season-ending injured reserve after tearing the ACL in his knee on Sunday afternoon, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

 

Faulk suffered the injured when he was pushed out of bounds by Drew Coleman in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Jets and did not return. 

 

An announcement is expected from head coach Bill Belichick shortly during his weekly Wednesday media briefing at Gillette Stadium. 

 

Faulk has been the most versatile back for the Patriots since the team began its run in 2001, serving as Tom Brady's go-to back on third down.

Good, bad and very ugly: O's rout Sox

The Orioles capitalized on a two-out error by Marco Scutaro in the sixth inning to tie the game and then used a three-run homer by Ty Wigginton to pull away in a 9-1 rout over the Red Sox Tuesday night at Fenway Park. 

 

The Red Sox could not take advantage of a strong start by Clay Buchholz, who was robbed of his 17th win on the Scutaro error and when Daniel Nava struck out looking with runners on second and third in the sixth. Buchholz allowed just the one unearned run and four hits over six innings, walking three and fanning five. 

 

The top five batters in the Red Sox order went a combined 2-for-21. Making matters worse, Jonathan Papelbon, making his first appearance since Sept. 14 at Seattle, was shelled for four runs on five hits and watched his ERA balloon to a season-high 3.92.

Ellsbury: 'I'll come back stronger'

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury talked to Ian Browne of mlb.com about the similarities between his diagnosis with non-displaced rib fractures and the injury suffered by Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton. Hamilton has been out since running into a wall in Minnesota on Sept. 4. While initial X-rays and an MRI did not reveal a fracture, further tests on Tuesday revealed that the MVP candidate has two rib fractures, and that he suffered a third rib fracture that has now healed.

 

Ellsbury told the website that he planned to talk to Hamilton about his own experience trying to return from five non-displaced fractures of his rib cage, injuries that virtually...
