Brady AFC Offensive POTW for 21st time

FOXBORO -- After leading the Patriots to 45 second-half points and scores on their final seven possessions against the Bills in a 52-28 win, Tom Brady was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday. It is the 21st time in his career that Brady has received the honor, matching Denver’s Peyton Manning for the most Player of the Week awards since the accolade was instituted in 1984. Brady and Manning will square off late Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium. 

Brady earned the award by completing 22-of-36 passes for 340 yards against the Bills, including three touchdown passes. Brady also scored on a 4-yard touchdown run. After New England fell behind 21-7 midway through the third quarter, Brady led the Patriots to six straight second-half touchdowns, including a 31-point fourth quarter. It was Brady’s third straight 300-yard game and the 48th of his career. Brady needs one more 300-yard game to tie Hall of Famer Warren Moon...

Bobby V crashes bike reading Pedroia text

NEW YORK -- According to The New York Times, Bobby Valentine suffered minor injuries to his knees and hip riding his bike in Central Park on Tuesday afternoon. The Red Sox manager was reading a text from second baseman Dustin Pedroia, informing the manager that he would play despite a broken finger, and according to the newspaper, when he looked up from the text, he had to avoid a collision. 

From The New York Times:

On the wet, slippery path, Valentine was reading a text on his phone from Dustin Pedroia, the Red Sox second baseman, and riding his bicycle. When he looked up, he had to swerve to avoid the umbrellas of two French tourists walking in front of him. The bike skidded, and he lost his balance and went careening head over pedals down the side of the hill by the road....

Mashup: Indians job Tito's to lose?

In Wednesday's Morning Mashup, we have video of Mark Cuban going clubbing (as only Mark Cuban can pull off), reports of Santonio Holmes being out for the season, and reports that Terry Francona is the leading candidate for the Indians managerial opening. 

Jim Duquette, who is a former general manager and current analyst for MLB.com, tweeted that the role is Terry Francona's job to lose. 

#Indians fans, In case you missed it yesterday, Francona's interview is Friday in Cleveland.Its his job to lose.

@hourigan07 - actually, you're right. His to turn down. And he won't.

It should be noted that former Indians catcher Sandy Alomar Jr. also is interviewing for the position. Either way, after how badly this season went, how quickly would you take Tito back? Yeah, he wasn't fired, but was letting him go one of the biggest miscalculations made by the front office in the last calendar year? Or are you...

Lester on his season: 'I'm glad it's over'

NEW YORK -- Speaking after the Red Sox' 4-3, 12-inning loss to the Yankees on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium, Jon Lester admitted that he was happy his season has come to a conclusion.

"We finished fifth. That’s not good enough," the lefty said after his 33rd start of the season. "It’s been a long year for a lot of people for a lot of different reasons. Like I just said, I’m glad it’s over, move on -- over for me. I’ll go into a much-needed offseason, regroup, and come back to spring training next year and kick some people’s asses and go from there."

Lester finished his last outing of the season by going five innings and giving up one unearned run before having to leave due to back spasms. The lefty completes his 2012 campaign having totaled 205 1/3 innings, compiling a 9-14 mark with a 4.82 ERA. The Red Sox were 13-20 in games he pitched.

"I did what I could. I took the ball...

Yanks walk off, Sox clinch last place

NEW YORK -- Raul Ibanez placed a 12th-inning single into left field against Red Sox reliever Andrew Miller, scoring Francisco Cervelli and handing the Yankees a 4-3 win over the Sox Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. The victory allowed New York to clinch at least a tie for the American League East crown.

The Sox, meanwhile, dropped to 69-92, ensuring that, with one game remaining and the fourth-place Blue Jays now 72-89, the Sox will end the year with the worst record in the five-team American League East. It is the first time that they've had a last-place season since 1992, when the 73-89 Sox finished seventh out of seven teams in the pre-realignment AL East. 

"We didn’t start the season to finish fifth or sixth, fourth or third," manager Bobby Valentine said.

Ibanez tied the game in the ninth inning with a two-run, pinch-hit home run against Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey. The homer, which cleared the right-field fence,...
