Belichick mum on reported release of Bodden

FOXBORO -- According to a ProFootballTalk.com report, the Patriots have released cornerback Leigh Bodden.

At his Friday morning press conference, coach Bill Belichick said, "We don't have any announcements to make right now," but when asked to comment on Bodden's play, he said: "We'll skip that right now."

The 30-year-old Bodden has played eight seasons in the NFL, including two with the Patriots. He had 17 tackles and four passes defended in five games (one start) this season.

Ference on D&C: Bruins need self-motivation

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference joined Dennis & Callahan for his weekly appearance Friday morning. In the Bruins' 2-1 loss to the Habs Thursday night, Ference was slashed to the face by a skate early in the first period. Although the laceration went down to his skull and required stitches to close up, Ference downplayed the severity of the injury.

"It would be embarrassing if I didn't go back out," Ference said of his return in the second period. "It's one thing if it's your leg or your hand, something that affects the game. It's just stitches, it doesn't really affect your game. That one was just kind of a standard one. The guys that come [back] out with cracked ribs and stuff like that, those are the guys that are a little crazy. But if it's just stitches, your teammates don't even bat an eye."

Ference was less concerned the injury and more with the state of the Bruins. Boston's loss to Montreal dropped the team to 3-6-0...

Lucchino on D&C: 'Stop dwelling on the past'

Red Sox president/CEO Larry Lucchino participated in an often testy discussion on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning, as he presented an impassioned defense of his boss, John Henry.

The arguing began a few minutes into the interview when Lucchino talked about new general manager Ben Cherington and made a reference to the media's role in publicizing the Red Sox' clubhouse discord.

"We were able to start a new chapter," Lucchino said. "I think Ben Cherington introduced himself beautifully the other day. You see the kind of general manager who is going to be leading the baseball operations of the Red Sox going forward. And we were able to make some progress and stop dwelling on the past and playing the blame game and doing all the nonsensical things that the media was leading us into. We were able to move forward. I think bifurcating those things was a good thing."

Mashup: Cards fan returns Freese HR ball

The fan who caught David Freese's 11th-inning home run in Thursday night's classic World Series Game 6 returned the ball to the Cardinals player after making a quick deal for a signed bat and ball and a chance to meet the players.

Dave Huyette, a 39-year-old radiologist from Maryville, Ill., leaped a fence and snared the ball from the center field grass. He tucked it in his pants and escaped other fans looking for it. Then he was escorted to the Cardinals clubhouse, where he met Freese and struck his deal.

"Maybe if I had been wanting for money, it'd be different," Huyette said. "But I make a good living. I wasn't going to hold the country hostage for the ball.

"I told them I didn't need any money, but it'd be nice to meet some of the players."

Huyette did just that, along with his friend Jeremy Reiland, a Cubs fan who wore a Cubs T-shirt inside the rival locker room.

"He didn't tell me he was...

Cardinals' dramatic rallies force Game 7

Down to the final strike in both the ninth and 10th innings, the Cardinals rallied twice before David Freese homered leading off the 11th inning in a dramatic 10-9 victory over the Rangers that forced a deciding Game 7 of the World Series.

It was the second time Freese had delivered in the game. His two-run triple in the ninth forced extra innings, and then St. Louis scored two more in the 10th after Josh Hamilton's home run had given the Rangers a 9-7 lead in the top of the inning.

Game 7 is Friday night. The Rangers will start Matt Harrison. The Cardinals did not immediately announce a starter, with Tony La Russa having to choose between Kyle Lohse, Edwin Jackson or even possibly Chris Carpenter on three days' rest.
