Gronk on D&C: 'So much room' to improve

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, in an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan Show, said that despite catching 71 passes for 1,088 yards and 15 touchdowns (an NFL single-season record for a tight end), there remains plenty of room for him to elevate his game. Pats quarterback Tom Brady has said that Gronkowski has shown constant improvement in his two-season career ("Thanks, Tom," Gronkowski laughed), and the 22-year-old suggested that he is driven to do just that.

"It’s only my second year. I have so much room for improvement. I have so much more to learn from the playbook. Tom has been here for 10, 12 years, however long it’s been, and knows so much more of this offense," said Gronkowksi. "Every single day I can learn more about the offense, and I do. Every single week, it’s going out on the practice field, feeling it out and getting better."

Gronkowski also touched on a few...

Mashup: Pujols' wife takes on Cardinals fans

The wife of Albert Pujols went on a St. Louis radio station Monday to defend her husband after the city's fans turned on the slugger for signing a contract with the Angels. Deidre Pujols said the Cardinals offered less money, more deferred money and fewer guarantees.

"When it all came down, I was mad," she told Joy FM, a Christian station that Pujols helped fund. "I was mad at God. … I mean, we had no reason, not one reason, to want to leave. People were deceived by the numbers."

"Albert has never lied," she added. "People are like, 'Oh, we thought we knew who he was.' Well, we thought we knew who they were. … The city of St. Louis has absolutely been deceived and I have never seen hatred spread so fast and I understand why. Let me say that Albert and I never, not one time, ever made plans to leave this city."

She added that Pujols' new destination may have been a sign. "It's just...

Sox sign Albers for $1.075M, non-tender Hill

The Red Sox agreed to a one-year, $1.075 million deal with right-hander Matt Albers, thus avoiding salary arbitration, but elected to non-tender left-hander Rich Hill as he continues his recovery from Tommy John surgery. The team tendered contracts to the other 23 unsigned players on their 40-man roster. With the moves, the Sox now have 38 players on their 40-man roster.

Albers went 4-4 with a 4.73 ERA in 56 games and 64 2/3 innings. He struck out 68 and walked 31. Albers represented a dominant setup man for the Sox through July, with a 2.09 ERA in 35 appearances. However, he struggled to a 9.97 ERA over the season's final two months, during which he struggled with his command both in and out of the strike zone.

Hill made nine scoreless appearances for the Sox after a May call-up, striking out 12 in eight innings. However, he tore his ulnar collateral ligament on June 1, necessitating season-ending Tommy John surgery....
