Casey: Beckett biggest concern for Sox

MLB Network analyst Sean Casey was a guest on the Dennis & Callahan show on Tuesday morning. Casey, who picked the Red Sox to win the AL East this season, was asked if there was any reason for concern as the club readies for Opening Day vs. the Rangers on Friday.

"I think the one element I'd be worried about is Josh Beckett, he hasn't had the best of springs," said Casey. "To dominate the AL East, you want to have three of four dominant starters. I think you've got [Jon] Lester and [Clay] Buchholz, who still have that great stuff, at the top of the rotation. Hopefully Lackey comes back and has a great year. But I think Beckett is the one X-Factor. If he comes and he's Josh Beckett -- one of the dominant pitchers for years -- you're sitting pretty. And if he's not I think you still have that question mark in the middle of the rotation."

Mashup: Ochocinco struggles in soccer stint

Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco failed to impress during a practice soccer game with Sporting Kansas City on Monday, struggling with his skills and conditioning against MLS players. However, the team hasn't given up on Ochocinco, especially considering the publicity this stunt has generated. Ochocinco is scheduled to meet with Sporting KC coach Peter Vermes on Tuesday to discuss his future. "I'm satisfied," Ochocinco said. "My dream has been answered, to be able to come onto the pitch and play for an MLS team. It doesn't have to be against someone professional. Just to be out here was enough for me. I can go home. I can die tomorrow and be satisfied. I can go to heaven and tell God, 'Man, I played professional soccer and I'm good.' "

Report: Ortiz, Jay-Z to settle lawsuit

According to the New York Daily News, David Ortiz and hip-hop artist Jay-Z have reached an agreement to settle a $5 million lawsuit that the rapper filed in a Manhattan Federal court against the Red Sox slugger over a nightclub naming dispute. Jay-Z, who owns the 40/40 Club in Manhattan, claimed that Ortiz' opening of a club called Forty-Forty in the Dominican created market confusion.

"The case has been settled in principle," Jay-Z's attorney, Peter Raymond, told the Daily News. "We have agreed on the outlines of a settlement and need to reduce it to writing."

In the absence of a settlement, the article suggested, both Jay-Z and Ortiz would have been required to appear in a Manhattan courtroom on Tuesday.

Ortiz is hitting .273 with a .726 OPS, one...
