Report: Manny to ChiSox on straight claim
By: DJ Bean

According to a tweet from ESPN's Jayson Stark, the White Sox have acquired Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez on a straight waiver claim, meaning the Dodgers will get no players in return and that the White Sox will pay all $3.8 million remaining on Ramirez' contract.

 

The White Sox are currently 4 1/2 games behind the Twins in the American League Central. They trail the Yankees/Rays by 10 games in the wild card race.

 

Ramirez, who played for the Red Sox from 2001-2007, is hitting .311/.405/.510 this season with eight homers and 40 RBI. He has made three trips to the disabled list.

Rodney: Pats 'fed up' with Jets' trash talk

Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison, speaking on a conference call this afternoon, said his old team is “fed up” with the amount of trash talk coming from the Jets, and the Patriots have their Week 2 game against New York “circled” on their calendar.

“You better believe, the Patriots have that circled with the Jets,” Harrison said. “They hate the Jets, but they hate them even more because they’ve been coming out saying, ‘This is our division.’ ”

Harrison, currently an analyst for NBC’s “Football Night in America,” said the words coming from Jets coach Rex Ryan are the most surprising.

“It’s one thing if a player trash talks,” Harrison said. “But if a coach starts trash talking, guess what? He hasn’t made one tackle, he hasn’t caught the ball, he hasn’t scored one touchdown.”

BB to Pats: 'Be ready to play every week'

FOXBORO -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick took a no-nonsense stand Monday in addressing whether or not he would play starters in the preseason finale against the Giants this Thursday night at New Meadowlands Stadium. 

 

"I tell everybody to be ready to play every week," Belichick said. "That's what we do. Coaches control control playing time but players should be ready to play every week, regardless of the score, situation, field conditions or anything else. That's their job, that's their responsibility and that's what it is every week and that's not going to change."

 

Belichick was speaking just hours after Tom Brady told Dennis and Callahan on Patriots Monday on WEEI that Belichick let the players 'have it pretty good' following a sloppy 36-35 preseason loss at home to the St. Louis Rams last Thursday.
