Baird, Duquette to interview with O's

According to multiple reports, Red Sox vice president of player personnel and professional scouting Allard Baird and former Red Sox general manager Dan Duquette are two of the four finalists for the Orioles' general manager position. Also interviewing for the job will be Yankees scouting director Damon Oppenheimer and Twins vice president Mike Radcliff.

The 50-year-old Baird, a New Hampshire native, served as Royals general manager from 2000-06, joining the Red Sox soon after his dismissal from Kansas City.

Duquette has been out of Major League Baseball since being fired by the Red Sox prior to the 2002 season. The 53-year-old recently interviewed with the Angels for their vacant GM job, which ultimately went to former Sox scout Jerry DiPoto.

The Orioles were thought to be on the verge of hiring Blue Jays assistant GM Tony LaCava earlier this week, but after meeting with Baltimore ownership the Toronto executive chose to remain working under...

Taylor Price questionable with hamstring

FOXBORO -- Taylor Price was expected to see more action on Sunday as the Patriots look to stretch the field in their passing game. Late Saturday night, the Patriots announced that Price is suddenly questionable with a hamstring injury. 

Price fully participated in practice all week with the Patriots and was not on the injury list. Price made headlines this week when offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien said he wanted to find more ways to get the second-year wide receiver out of Ohio University more involved in the offense. Price has been active for the last four games and played in the games against the Cowboys and Steelers.

Theo: Not sure Tito a fit with Cubs
By: DJ Bean

Cubs president Theo Epstein said Thursday (as relayed by MLB.com) that he isn't sure if former Red Sox manager Terry Francona would be the right fit for the Cubs, who currently have a managerial opening. 

“Clearly, he would be at the top of anybody’s list as far as available managers,” Epstein said. “I think that’s true of any organization who looked at and said, who is somebody with experience and a proven winner who would be a real asset. He’s got to be at or close to the top of the list. I think it has to be the right fit here. I think he needs to figure whether this is right for him. I’m not sure it is, and Tito’s not sure it is."

Epstein hired Francona in 2003, and together they won World Series titles in 2004 and 2007. The Red Sox did not pick up Francona's option, while Epstein...
