Brady on D&C: 'It's my job to do that'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined the Dennis & Callahan show early Wednesday morning for his weekly conversation, two days after he threw for a career-high 517 yards in a 38-24 victory over the Dolphins.

"That was obviously a huge win for us," Brady said. "To start the year like that, from a team standpoint, was great. Miami's always a tough place for us to play, and we've had some pretty miserable performances down there over the years. Due to the Dolphins defense, due to the different conditions, it's always a tough place to play. For us to come out of there with the win, and to play pretty well on offense. Honestly, there are plenty of things that we can do better and we'll need to do better, but to get that win under our belt was great for us."

Asked about his dominating performance, Brady said he became aware of his passing yardage in the fourth quarter, but he insists he has more important things to think about....

Mashup: FSU's Bowden kept cancer secret

Former Florida State football coach Bobby Bowden revealed Tuesday that he was diagnosed with prostrate cancer (and successfully treated) in 2007, but he kept it secret because he was afraid opposing coaches would use it against him in recruiting. "People used to get on me that 'He's too old; he's 77 -- ought not even be coaching,' " Bowden said. "Now you add cancer to that and I didn't have a chance." The 81-year-old Bowden now says it's "my moral duty to bring it out in the open."

Pedroia: Time to 'play every day like Gm 7'

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, after a 4-for-5 night that saw him blast two homers and two doubles while matching a career high with five runs batted in to help lead the Sox to an 18-6 win, suggested that the intensity of the season has reached a new pinnacle. As such, Pedroia suggested that the team -- following a 1-6 road trip -- was shifting gears and embracing a playoff mentality in which each game is treated with a sense of urgency.

"The last couple of weeks have been tough. We've had a tough schedule. We haven't gotten much sleep, " said Pedroia. "We're at the time of the year where we all need to step up together and play winning baseball. We played great tonight but tomorrow we have to come out and find a way to win. That's basically it. It's getting close so we have to figure it out.

"Every win is big," Pedroia added. "We're going to come out and play every day like it's Game 7 from here on...

Last-minute back spasms sideline Ortiz

After the Red Sox' 18-6 win over the Blue Jays Tuesday night at Fenway Park, manager Terry Francona explained that the reason David Ortiz was pinch-hit for by Jed Lowrie in the first inning was due to back spasms. The ailment, according to Francona, didn't pose a threat to Ortiz' availability until just before the first pitch.

"Right before the game, and I mean right before the game, his back was getting stiff," the manager said. "He thought he was going to be OK, and we had to take the lineup cards out, so rather than take him out, we thought he had a shot. We turned in the lineup cards, then he went to swing and it really got tight so we had to scratch him. Just muscles spasms, but he got really tight."

Ortiz came into the game hitting .429 against Toronto starter Brandon Morrow (6-for-14) with two home runs. Lowrie struggled in replacing the designated hitter, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.

It is unclear if Ortiz...

Beckett tentatively slated to start Friday

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said after his team's 18-6 win over the Blue Jays Tuesday night that Josh Beckett is tentatively slated to make his next start Friday night at Fenway Park against the Rays.

Beckett, who hasn't pitched since he exited his September 5 start with a sprained right ankle, threw a successful bullpen session Monday, paving the way for a return to the rotation. It is still unclear who will make the Sox' start Thursday in their series opener against Tampa Bay.

"Yeah, I think he's going to pitch Friday," Francona said. "That's not exactly set in stone, but I think that's the way we're leaning. He's going to come out tomorrow and cover first and stuff, do those types of things, have that kind of workout, and I think Friday's looking good."

Another injured Red Sox starter, Erik Bedard, did some light tossing Tuesday, but isn't a candidate to pitch this week. The left-hander told WEEI.com prior to the...
