Mashup: More controversy for Haynesworth

Defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was deactivated by the Redskins before Sunday's loss to the Giants. No stranger to controversy, Haynesworth admitted he was late to practice on Friday and did not practice because he said he was sick, but he still wasn't happy with being held out Sunday. “I was sick, so I did show up a minute late, but I don’t think that’s a reason to sit out,” he said. Asked if he was shocked he was deactivated, he said: “Yeah, I am [shocked]. I thought it was a do-or-die situation and we needed to do whatever it takes to win.” Read more about that story and others, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Monday's Morning Mashup.

Source: No formal offer to Werth from Sox

Though the Red Sox actively explored the idea of adding free agent outfielder Jayson Werth, the team never came close to the seven-year, $126 million contract offer that the Washington Nationals used to reel in the hirsute 31-year-old. In fact, a source familiar with the situation said that the Red Sox -- despite a meeting last week between club officials, the outfielder and his agent -- never made a formal offer to Werth.

 

Werth represented a highly regarded outfielder whose all-around skill set (above-average outfield defense, middle-of-the-order lineup production and strong base running skills) made him a worthy offseason target. But not at the years and dollars offered by the Nats.

 

For more on Werth's situation, and the possible benefit to the Red Sox of the fact that he signed with the Nationals,...

Report: Adrian Gonzalez headed to Red Sox

The Red Sox have agreed on a deal to acquire San Diego slugger Adrian Gonzalez, according to Jon Heyman of SI.com, who adds that a press conference is expected to be held Monday to officially announce the trade. It isn't know who will be heading to the Padres in return, but multiple reports over the weekend indicated that Casey Kelly, Reymond Fuentes, and Anthony Rizzo will be dealt to San Diego. In addition, Heyman reports that the Red Sox will add about "seven years at about $23 million per" to Gonzalez's $6 million salary for 2011, but he adds that "no extension will be announced yet." (WEEI.com's Alex Speier says that it's the prudent thing for the Sox to wait on...

BC to play in Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl

They will have a tough test with Nevada who went 12-1 this season and beat Boise State, handing the Broncos their only loss. The Wolf Pack are ranked 13th in the Associated Press poll.

Reports: A's withdraw offer to Beltre

According to tweets from both ESPN's Buster Olney and Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com, the Oakland A's have withdrawn their offer to free agent third baseman Adrian Beltre. It had been reported that the A's were offering Beltre a five-year deal worth upwards of $60 million.
