Sox remove three from 40-man roster

The Red Sox have removed catchers Dusty Brown and Kevin Cash as well as right-handed pitcher Robert Manuel from their 40-man roster. All three will become free agents five days after the World Series.

 

Cash was acquired from the Astros in the middle of the season, when the Sox had four catchers on their 40-man roster (Victor Martinez, Jason Varitek, Mark Wagner and Brown) on the disabled list. Cash, in his second stint with the Sox, played in 29 games, hitting .133 with a .374 OPS while driving in one. He received raves from the Sox for his clubhouse impact.

 

Brown appeared in seven games, going 3-for-12 with a pair of runs batted in. The 28-year-old was in his 10th year in the Sox organization.

 

Manuel, claimed off waivers from the Mariners last offseason, had a 4.26 ERA in 10 appearances for the Red Sox, holding opponents to a .213 average. The 27-year-old's most notable outing of the season, however...

Players, umps set to meet this winter

According to a report on ESPN.com, a rare meeting between major league players, umpires and officials is scheduled to take place in December to discuss the state of relations between players and umpires. The meeting is a response to what the report described as increased tensions between the two groups and concerns about a lack of transparency in terms of how umpires are supervised.

 

There have been several high-profile disputes between umpires and teams involved in the postseason this year, bubbling over to the point where both Rays manager Joe Maddon and Twins skipper Ron Gardenhire were thrown out of games on Thursday. That comes on the heels of a season in which several players expressed concern that the strike zone was either more inconsistent or bigger than it had been in previous seasons, playing into a record-setting year for strikeouts per nine innings...

King on D&H: Moss 'was a headache' to Pats

Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports joined the Dale & Holley show Friday for his weekly update on the NFL. King said he had no inside scoop on the Randy Moss situation, but he knows enough to draw some conclusions.

 

Said King: "Something happened. Or some couple of things happened. ... What basically has happened is that we have seen the Patriots made a move that is not in the best interests of the team right now — in other words, to win this week. And so, something happened. Some event or events have happened to sour the Patriots on Randy Moss. And even though their statements of the last few days would have led you to believe they were talking about John F. Kennedy rather than Randy Moss, and what a wonderful human being he is, and how the next thing he's going to do in life is discover a cure for cancer — I mean, enough of telling us what we don't believe, which is that Randy Moss is the greatest guy on the...
