Richardson down, Nava up, Patterson to DL
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox placed outfielder/infielder Eric Patterson on the disabled list on Tuesday in order to make room for the return of second baseman Dustin Pedroia. The team also recalled outfielder Daniel Nava and sent reliever Dustin Richardson to Triple A Pawtucket.

 

Richardson, 26, allowed just three earned runs in 19 games (10 1/3 IP), though he gave up two homers. Nava, on the other hand, has hit .290 with a home run and 16 runs batted in over two stints with the Sox this season. The 27 year old has played in 30 major league games.

Kendall on D&C: Mankins likely to miss year

Former NFL offensive lineman Pete Kendall joined the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning. Kendall, a first-round draft pick in 1996 out of Boston College, had a similar dispute to Patriots lineman Logan Mankins prior to the 2007 season, when the Quincy native played for the Jets. It led to him being traded to the Redskins.

 

Kendall said he foresees Mankins sitting out the season in his contract dispute with the Patriots, although he left room for Mankins to change his mind. "I wouldn't say there's no shot," Kendall said. "[But] there does seem to be hard feelings."

 

Added Kendall: "He's played five years, he has an expired contract. He's not under contract now. And I guess the way I look at it is he's got a chance to come in and risk injury for, correct me if I'm wrong, about a million and half [dollars] this year. Or he can stay healthy and most likely hit the free agent market next March...

Mashup: Reporter fired for hat choice

A radio reporter in Arkansas who was sent to a press conference to interview University of Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino after a Razorbacks scrimmage wore a Florida Gators hat to the session, and it didn't go well. Not only did Petrino make a disparaging comment, the reporter, Renee Gork, tweeted that she was fired by Hog Sports Radio for her fashion faux pas. Gork also was the victim of online harassment when Arkansas fans found her Facebook page, on which she displays her affection for Florida and makes some critical comments of the school she was covering. Read more about that story, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Tuesday's Morning Mashup.
