Report: 'Disconnect' with Brady, Pats on deal

When it comes to a new deal for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Michael Silver of Yahoo Sports! writes today “there’s a growing sense of disconnect” between the quarterback and the franchise.

Silver says, “three months before the start of the 2010 campaign, and less than two months before training camp, there have been no substantial talks between his agents (Don Yee and Steve Dubin) and the Pats’ front office, and there’s a growing sense of disconnect between the two camps.”

Both sides have maintained mostly radio silence on this issue. Brady, who is in the final year of a five-year contract he signed in 2005, has politely declined to comment when he's been asked about the contract. Meanwhile, Patriots owner Robert Kraft was vague last week when he was asked about the contract situations that surround Brady and Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins.

“I’m not the one doing it,...

Report: Hornets set deadline for Thibodeau

An ESPN.com report on Wednesday indicates that the New Orleans Hornets plan to offer the head coaching job to Trail Blazers assistant Monty Williams if Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau does not accept the position before Game 1 of the NBA finals. 

 

Thibodeau was reportedly offered the job last week, but according to the ESPN report the Hornets do not want to let their coaching search go into next week. Thibodeau's possible interest in both the Chicago Bulls and New Jersey Nets positions may also be a factor in the Hornets setting a deadline.

V-Mart to sit out Wednesday night

Red Sox catcher Victor Martinez, who went 5-for-5 Tuesday night and hit four doubles, will sit out Wednesday night's game, manager Terry Francona told Dale & Holley during his weekly interview. Jason Varitek will catch Daisuke Matsuzaka, although Martinez will be avaialble to pinch hit. Martinez will play in Thursday's afternoon game, catching Tim Wakefield. Francona said Martinez is "still limping pretty significantly" after injuring his toe in last week's series against Tampa Bay. "We just weren't comfortable trying to get too many innings out of him in a short span of time," Francona said.

Francona on D&H: Pedroia will get hot

Red Sox manager Terry Francona talked with the Dale & Holley show Wednesday about Dustin Pedroia's struggles at the plate recently and how he knows, not thinks, that his star second baseman will turn it around. "He will get just as hot as he got cold," Francona said. "I'm sitting here telling you right now. You watch, it's going to happen. I hope it starts tonight, but it will happen. He's too good a player. He's too good a hitter. This is a crazy game. Sometimes you can't bottle it and have it be consistent. But I'm telling you, he will get to this level, and it's going to be fun to watch."

 

The Sox manager also discussed John Lackey, who, despite his 6-3 record, has struggled at times with a 4.95 ERA. "This is a guy that had bases loaded, pitched out of it," Francona said. "He’s pitched out of some jams. To be able to pitch out of jams like he did, you have to have pretty good stuff, and you...

The Orioles seemed to have a lot of fun last night clinching the AL East. Buster said the biggest problem for Boston this year was the offense production dropping so dramatically in one year. Bogaerts, Pierzynski, and Bradley Jr. are the most obvious culprits. Also, Buster surmises that the Red Sox front office has to be a little uneasy with the fact that their best offensive player, David Ortiz, is in this LATE 30's.
