Kraft will not attend NFL meetings

Robert Kraft will not attend the NFL's annual meetings this week in New Orleans.

 

The Patriots owner will miss the meetings “due to a private family medical matter,” according to a team release. Club president Jonathan Kraft and Bill Belichick will both be in New Orleans this week.

 

Robert Kraft is viewed as one of the most influential owners in the NFL. He is a member of five committees -- including the management council executive committee -- and is considered a key voice in the ongoing labor negotiations with the NFLPA.

New throwing program pays off for Daisuke

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- For the second straight outing since altering his between-starts throwing program, Daisuke Matsuzaka came away with good results. On Sunday, the result was a 5 2/3-inning outing in which he allowed two runs on three hits, striking out four while showing an impressive fastball that was clocked as high as 96 mph by some scouts' radar guns.

 

"Just like last outing I was able to throw strikes using the breaking ball, and also I had great life on my fastball," Matsuzaka said through a translator. "It was not necessary to throw to the corners because my fastball was strong enough to throw down the middle."

 

The alteration in Matsuzaka's program came following a disappointing 3 2/3-inning, five-run outing against Tampa Bay on March 10. The pitcher took the suggestion of pitching coach Curt Young that instead of throwing his side session and long toss on the same day, he now executes long...

Daisuke good, Miller not in Cards' rout of Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Daisuke Matsuzaka was effective and efficient on Sunday, but his two-out walk with none on in the sixth inning opened the door for a 10-run frame as the Cardinals routed the Red Sox, 10-3, at City of Palms Park. 

 

Matsuzaka allowed three hits and two earned runs over 5 2/3 innings, walking two and striking out four. He threw 79 pitches, 50 for strikes, in his longest outing of the spring. Matsuzaka, who is now 0-2 with a 6.05 ERA this spring, needed just 64 pitches to get through five innings. After getting two quick outs in the sixth, Matsuzaka walked Albert Pujols and then surrendered a long run-scoring double to right-center by Matt Holliday. 

 

Francona pulled Matsuzaka for lefty reliever Andrew Miller, who struggled badly. The former No. 1 pick of the Tigers in 2006 faced six batters and didn't retire anyone, allowing four hits and six runs while walking two. Scott Atchison came in and...

Light disappointed in Patriots owner

Patriots left tackle Matt Light said Saturday he was disappointed that owner Robert Kraft was not present in the final hours of collective bargaining last week between the NFL players and owners.

“No doubt, 100 percent,” Light said when asked by Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe. “I’m not going to lie to you.”

Kraft, who was on a previously planned trade mission to Israel with Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, did get updates over the phone, but that didn’t prevent some members of the players’ association from expressing disappointment that one of the most powerful men in the NFL wasn’t there during such a crucial stage of the negotiations.

“Look, again, like [Mike] Vrabel stated, like everyone else has said, we had people in that room that could get a deal done at any point. Do I know how they’re structured within the league? No, I have no clue.
