Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork joined the Dale & Holley show Monday and talked about the Patriots' preparation for Sunday's season-opener vs. the Benglas. Asked if he felt good about the defense heading into the season, Wilfork replied: "The season starts this week, whether you feel good or not. It is what it is. Every day, you try to get better and move forward. That's where we're at right now. We have a big game coming up with the Bengals. We'll see on Sunday where we're at. I mean, the season's here. You can't go back and re-do anything. We're a week away, days away from opening up on a prime-time game against one of these up-and-coming great teams. That's where we're at right now. We have to put the work in now."
While praising linebacker Jerod Mayo's leadership skills, Wilfork said a key for the Patriots is for everyone to stand up for themselves. "We look at everyone as leaders in this locker room," he...
FOXBORO -- Asked whether he would do what Jets coach Rex Ryan did and travel to Florida to help get star cornerback Darrelle Revis on the team, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Monday he wasn't paying attention.
"Yeah, I'm not really familiar with all that," Belichick said. "I don't know what everybody else does. I'm just going to coach the team, do what's best for our team, that's what I'm going to do."
Belichick was asked this in light of the current situation of Logan Mankins, the Patriots starting left guard who is without a contract and did not report to training camp this summer. "I'm going to coach the players and we'll talk about the players that are here," Belichick said. "Right now, I'm getting ready for the Bengals with the players that are on our roster."
Belichick held his weekly Monday briefing with reporters and said all of his focus is...
The Red Sox will purchase the contract of first baseman Lars Anderson from Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday, according to a report at SoxProspects.com. The 22-year-old lefty is batting .274 with 15 home runs in 130 games this season, split between the PawSox and Double-A Portland.
Anderson, drafted in the 18th round in 2006, was considered one of the organization's top prospects after a strong start at Single-A, but he fell a bit after struggling in Double-A last season. He rebounded this spring, hitting .355 in 17 games at Portland and earning the promotion to Pawtucket. He started slow at Triple-A, hitting .233 his first two months there, but he's batted .296 since the Triple-A All-Star break.

Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather joined the Dale & Holley show Monday to talk about Sunday's season-opener against the Bengals. Meriweather said he's looking forward to going up against the duo of Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens. "Any time you get a chance to play against two of the elite receivers ever to play the game, you get excited," he said.
Meriweather said he did not plan to join the inevitable war of words with the loud-mouthed receivers. "I'll say hello to Chad," Meriweather said with a laugh. "I'm going to let my play talk. I'm not going to be one of those guys who goes out and says everything in the newspaper and to ESPN and all the different radio stations. I'm going to be one of those guys who, when I strap up my pads, I'm going to let my pads talk. I'm not going to do too much yapping."
Pressed to comment on Ochocinco's reality TV dating show, Meriweather said,...
The American League West-leading Rangers were swept by the Central-leading Twins over the weekend, and Sunday's game ended in some controversy. The Rangers were rallying and had the game-tying run within 90 feet of home when third base coach Dave Anderson was called for interfering with runner Michael Young because umpire Alfonso Marquez claimed the two touched hands as Young tried to stop while rounding the base. Anderson and Young insist they never made contact, and the video is not conclusive. The suddenly struggling and injury-plagued Rangers still lead their division by eight games but fell farther behind the Twins in the battle for home field in the first round. Read more about that story, plus check out why there is a call for Derek Jeter to be dropped to the bottom of the Yankees lineup, at Monday's Morning Mashup.
