Source: Red Sox, John Maine agree to deal

A major league source confirmed a report in the Fredericksburg Freelance-Star that the Red Sox have agreed to terms with pitcher John Maine on a minor league deal. Contrary to the report, however, the deal does not include an invitation to big league camp.

The team scouted Maine and views him as a good, no-risk bounceback candidate as a starter or reliever. The pitcher's agent, Rex Gary, told the newspaper that the Red Sox are eyeing using the 30-year-old as a reliever despite Maine having made 105 of his 108 major league appearances as a starter with both the Orioles and Mets. Maine hasn't pitched in the major leagues since 2010, when he made nine starts for the Mets. After undergoing shoulder surgery in '10, the righty signed a minor league deal with the Rockies, leading to 11 starts (1-3, 7.43 ERA) with Triple-A Colorado Springs. He would leave team voluntarily in...

Only Gronk missing at Pats practice

FOXBORO -- Rob Gronkowski was the only player not spotted as the team practiced in full pads in their final Foxboro practice of the season. The tight end missed his second straight day of practice with a left ankle injury, an injury his father told a Western New York TV station was a high ankle sprain. 

Gronkowski suffered the injury late in the third quarter against the Ravens when safety Bernard Pollard tackled him and fell on the ankle, twisting it beneath him. Gronkowski's father said the tight end will be "fine" to play in the game. 

The Patriots will move their operation to Indianapolis on Sunday when they arrive for Super Bowl XLVI on Feb. 5 in Indianapolis.

Full coverage of Super Bowl XLVI can be heard on Sportsradio WEEI 93.7 beginning on Super Sunday at 4 p.m. ET.  For complete coverage, visit the Patriots team page at and the blog...

Gronk's father: 'High ankle sprain' for TE

The Patriots, as per their usual practice, have not been very forthcoming with details about the injury tight end Rob Gronkowski suffered in the AFC championship game.

According to Gronkowski's father, Gordy, the injury is a high ankle sprain. Speaking to Buffalo-area television station WIVB, the elder Gronk said he expects his son will be OK for the Super Bowl.

Gronkowski was hurt while being tackled by Ravens defensive back Bernard Pollard after making a catch in the third quarter. He limped to the locker room before returning in the fourth quarter. He has been spotted in a walking boot and has not practiced with the team this week.

Gordy Gronkowski, a former Syracuse offensive lineman who owns a chain of exercise equipment stores called G&G Fitness, also talked about his son's improvement in his professionalism.

Lombardi on D&C: Which Brady will show?

NFL analyst Michael Lombardi, in his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show, suggested that the recent inconsistency of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady suggests that it is Giants counterpart Eli Manning who is currently playing at the higher level. One week after he threw for six touchdowns in a divisional playoff game against the Broncos, Brady didn't throw for a touchdown while tossing two picks against the Ravens in the AFC championship game, something that Lombardi said was the byproduct of missed plays rather than Baltimore's defense.

"It wasn’t so much the Ravens played great defense. The Patriots didn’t execute," said Lombardi. "Which Tom are we going to get? The one from Denver or the one against Baltimore? I think that’s the question you have to ask. The last [AFC] championship Tom played in, against San Diego [in 2008], I think he threw three interceptions as well.

"I talked to him...
