Joe Urbon, the agent for free agent outfielder Jason Bay, told WEEI.com that his client might be ready to move on from the Red Sox after fielding the team's latest offer. "We've turned down the Red Sox offer," Urbon said. "We have other offers on the table that are better than we have from the Red Sox and unless the Red Sox are willing to move off their offer we're prepared to move on." According to a major league source there is one team which has extended past the four years thought to be offered by the Red Sox. When asked if he was surprised at the course the negotiations have taken, Urbon responded, "No". The agent did leave the window open for the potential of the Red Sox getting back into the hunt with another other, and did not say there was any sort of timetable set for an agreement to be reached. FoxSports.com initially reported that the Bay camp was turning down the Red Sox' latest offer.
SI.com football writer Peter King told "Dale & Holley" on Friday that embattled Patriots linebacker Adalius Thomas "will be out of [New England] at the end of the year." King, in his weekly appearance on WEEI, said that New England initially envisioned Thomas as a more athletic version of former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel, but Thomas has fallen far short of that. "I mean they thought he was going to be a more athletic Vrabel and he has simply has not just turned into that," King said. "And now, you are simply not going to just bury his personality, you are going to have to cut him, which I am sure that Bill Belichick will do at the end of the year."
