Faxon on D&C: 'We're getting spanked'

With the United States' Ryder Cup team trailing the Europeans, NBC Analyst Brad Faxon broke down what has happened to the US in Newport, Wales, saying "The European team this year is as strong as they've ever had." The U.S. team entered the final day trailing the Europeans, 9 1/2-6 1/2.

 

"We're getting spanked,"  observed Faxon.

 

The PGA tour veteran noted that the European side enjoys playing on the kind of slower greens Celtic Manor is presenting. "It's unbelievable," he said, "how every year it comes down to who makes more putts … I don't know why the European team seems to putt better than we do."

 

Faxon said he doesn't blame U.S. team captain Corey Pavin, and praised European captain Colin Montgomerie. When asked if he thought this win would mean more to Montgomerie than having had triumphed in any of the majors he fell short in throughout his...

Martinez on free agency: 'I want to be here'

Red Sox catcher Victor Martinez said after his team's season-ending victory over the Yankees that he did not know what to expect from his pending venture into free agency, though he reiterated how much he had enjoyed his time in Boston and the idea that he would like to come back.

 

"I said earlier, I want to be here, but now, that I got a chance to go out to free agency, we’ll see what happens," said Martinez. "It was one of the best experiences in my career, to come here, wear this uniform and play in front of these great fans. It’s unbelievable. The competition, to come here and just be ready to play every day, it was amazing, and an honor for me just to wear this uniform."

 

That said, Martinez suggested he had no idea what to expect in terms of the likelihood that he returns to Boston or heads to another city (including cities with rumored interest, including Detroit and Baltimore). He...

Epstein: 'Larger-than-normal' Sox changes?

Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein, speaking after his team's season-ending 8-4 win over the Yankees, acknowledged that his team is bracing for an offseason in which significant change, while not a certainty, is possible. Given the uncertain contract situations of players like Victor Martinez, Adrian Beltre, Jason Varitek and David Ortiz, Epstein said that the 2011 Red Sox could take a notably different form than the 2010 edition that wrapped up an 89-73 campaign.

 

"I can say there’s potential for there to be larger-than-normal turnover, but I wouldn’t guarantee it either,” said Epstein. “We’ll see how everything comes together.”

 

Epstein said that the club has interest in bringing back Ortiz, Beltre and Martinez, and acknowledged the bullpen as a priority for offseason improvement. He and manager Terry Francona also analyzed individual successes (Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz),...

Varitek: 'Don't know what the future holds'

Speaking after the Red Sox season-ending, 8-4 victory over the Yankees, Sunday at Fenway Park, Jason Varitek reiterated that he plans on playing somewhere next season, and would love to remain with the Sox.

 

"Don't know what the future holds," said Varitek, who will be eligible for free agency this offseason. "It was a good day today.

 

"We'll just have to see what happens. But I do appreciate the fan support, respect my teammates. This has been a special place for me."

 

Varitek said he was caught off guard when Red Sox manager Terry Francona sent Kevin Cash out to catch closer Jonathan Papelbon after the pitcher's warm-up tosses, allowing for the Sox' captain to receive a standing ovation from the Fenway Park crowd.

 

"I saw Cash down there, and I just kind of dismissed it, focused on what I had to do," he said. "It’s an important game of...
