Schefter: Brady deal 'going to get done'

ESPN football insider Adam Schefter took a break from his training camp bus tour to talk to the Dale & Holley show Friday afternoon. One of the first topics of conversation was the return of Wes Welker to Patriots practices after suffering what was thought to be a horrible knee injury in Week 17 of last season. 

 

"He's surprising everybody," Schefter said. "Even today during [an interview], he said that the doctors told him it would be eight to nine months before he's back on the field, before he could think about being back on the field. ... The guy is an awfully tough football player, and what he's done here has been remarkable."

 

Schefter also addressed the contract negotiations between the Patriots and star quarterback Tom Brady. Many in New England are worried that it will take some time for a deal to be completed, if it even is completed. Schefter did not seem nearly as worried.

Kendrick Perkins taking physical for Sox

Red Sox sixth-round draft pick Kendrick Perkins will be in Boston on Friday to take a physical, likely the final hurdle for the athletic outfielder to sign with the Sox. Perkins, a two-sport star at La Porte High School, has a baseball and football scholarship offer to Texas A&M. But he appears ready to bypass that opportunity in order to begin his pro baseball career.

 

Perkins is not related to the Celtics player of the same name. For more on the baseball-playing Kendrick Perkins, click here. For complete Red Sox coverage, visit weei.com/redsox.

Mashup: Pedro says Mets 'left me hanging'

Former Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez made a promotional appearance in New York Thursday and said the Phillies and several other teams recently tried to lure him out of retirement, but he's going to continue to spend time with his family instead — at least for now. And in comments that should sound familiar to Boston fans, Pedro criticized the Mets for not re-signing him after the 2008 season. "They didn't pull me back," Martinez said. "They left me hanging after I let go of so many teams. It's business. I know that baseball has a bad side. And that's the bad side of baseball — business."

 

Also in the news, a Louisiana youth baseball coach who tested positive for extreme levels of animal steroids was sentenced to jail time for his assault on the coach of a rival team of 8-year-olds during postgame handshakes. It just so happened the game involved teams named Yankees and Red Sox.

Tito: Okajima's hamstring 'bothering' him

Terry Francona told reporters on Thursday that reliever Hideki Okajima was bothered by a potential hamstring injury during his outing in the series finale with the Indians. Okajima struggled in the ninth inning, entering the game with a 6-1 lead only to walk leadoff batter Matt LaPorta and allow a pair of singles, including an RBI from Luis Valbuena. Okajima's ERA for the season stands at 5.85 and whatever significant role he once had in the bullpen has vanished.

 

"He actually said after he came out that his hamstring was bothering him a little bit," said Francona of Okajima. "We'll see. Didn't say anything before. Actually right before I was coming up here, they kind of ran in. We'll sit down with him and just make sure he's OK. It didn't look like anything was different. If he locates, his velocity is always the same. If he locates, he's real good. If he doesn't locate, he gives up runs."

Beltre helps Sox, Matsuzaka slam Indians

Adrian Beltre connected for his eighth career grand slam in the fourth inning with two outs as the Red Sox beat the Indians, 6-2, on Thursday at Fenway Park, splitting their four-game series with the Indians. 

 

Daisuke Matsuzaka allowed just five hits and one run over eight innings to improve to 8-3 on the season. His only mistake was a long 440-foot-homer to center by Cleveland right fielder Shin-Soo Choo. Indians starter Josh Tomlin retired the first 10 batters of the night before Marco Scutaro began the four-run rally with a single to left field. Jonathan Papelbon recorded his 26th save when he escaped a bases-loaded situation. Papelbon fanned Trevor Crowe with the bases loaded to end the game. 

 

The Red Sox picked up a game on Tampa Bay in the wild card race and trail the Rays by five games after Tampa Bay lost on Thursday afternoon to Minnesota. The Red Sox open a four-game series with the AL East-leading...
