Pedroia: No interest in fighting Pacquiao

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, during the latest installment of his Laser Show segment with the Big Show, suggested that even though he is on schedule in his recovery from foot surgery, he has little interest in taking on Manny Pacquiao in a boxing ring. Pedroia noted that, while he would have a few inches and about 35 pounds on Pac Man, so, too, did Antonio Margarito, the fighter whom Pacquiao dominated over the weekend.

 

"I haven’t watched boxing in a while, but didn’t the last guy have about three and a half inches and 35 pounds, too?" Pedroia wondered. "I’ve been beat up many times in my life. I’m good. ... Let’s just say I’ve been in my fair share of scuffles and I haven’t won many. [I was] like a chihuahua dog. Bite you in the ankles."

 

As for his recovery from surgery to insert a pin in his left foot, Pedroia said that he is progressing on...

Francona fourth in AL Manager of Year vote

Minnesota Twins skipper Ron Gardenhire was named the American League Manager of the Year while Padres manager Bud Black took home the honor in the National League. While Gardenhire claimed a healthy margin of victory over second-place finisher Ron Washington of the Rangers in the AL, Black won by a single point over Reds manager Dusty Baker in the NL.

 

Gardenhire claimed 16 of 28 first-place votes, with Washington claiming 10. Though he did not receive a single first-place vote, Red Sox manager Terry Francona finished in fourth (the third time he has done so as Red Sox skipper) for guiding a club decimated by injuries to an 89-73 record. Though that was not good enough to reach the postseason, the Sox and Francona received high marks from the baseball world this year for competing hard in the face of injuries to key players such as Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis, Victor Martinez, Jacoby Ellsbury, Josh Beckett and Clay Buchholz.

Pats practice: Brady, Page and Pryor miss

FOXBORO -- For the second straight week, Tom Brady missed Wednesday practice to rest his foot as the Patriots began on-field work in advance of their latest huge game, Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday at Gillette Stadium. 

 

Brady was nursing a foot injury following the loss in Cleveland on Nov. 7 and did not practice last Wednesday. He was also limited on Thursday and Friday but showed no ill effects during a 39-26 thrashing of the Steelers last Sunday night. Brady had his first 300-yard game, throwing for 350 yards and three touchdowns to Rob Gronkowski while rushing for another. 

 

Also missing from practice again were safety Jarrad Page (calf) and Myron Pryor (back). The team practice in sweats and shells on the upper grass fields outside Gillette.

Brady would do '4th-and-2' all over again

FOXBORO -- With the Indianapolis Colts coming to town this weekend, there will be lots of talk about the single biggest play of the season between the two teams last year at Lucas Oil Field. And like everyone who watched the thriller between the Colts and Patriots, Tom Brady remembers 'fourth-and-2' last November. 

 

Last year, the Patriots needed just two yards for a first down with two minutes to go to salt away a 34-28 win at Indy. But instead of punting the ball away to Peyton Manning and the then-perfect Colts, Pats coach Bill Belichick decided to put the contest in Brady's hands.

 

"I haven't thought about it at all since probably that game, since that night as a matter of fact," Brady said Wednesday. "Our coaches have always had a lot of faith in what we do offensively and the way the offensive line protects and the way the receivers get open. He's gone for it a bunch on fourth down this year...
