Mashup: Forbes values Pats No. 3 in NFL

 Forbes magazine compiled a ranking of NFL teams by their value, and the Patriots are third at $1.4 billion, behind only the top-ranked Cowboys ($1.8 billion) and the Redskins ($1.6 billion). The magazine praises the Pats as one of the best-run teams on and off the field, and notes that team sponsorship revenues are up again this season. And speaking of sports teams' financial information, the fallout continues after the leak of documents detailing some baseball teams' expenses and income. Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is coming under fire after getting substantial assistance from Miami to build a new stadium following claims that his team was not nearly as healthy as the documents indicate. Read about those stories and more at Thursday's Morning Mashup.

Tito: 'We'll pitch Daisuke when he's able'

 Red Sox manager Terry Francona said following his team's 4-2 loss to the Mariners Wednesday night that Daisuke Matsuzaka -- who was scheduled to make the start in the nightcap of a Fenway Park doubleheader -- was scratched after experiencing tightness in his back while getting ready for his outing.

 

Francona went on to explain that there is no timetable for Matsuzaka's return to the rotation, with Jon Lester having been moved from Wednesday night's start to Friday against the Rays and Tim Wakefield filling in Wednesday night.

 

"Daisuke went out to throw his side, in between games. He had had a stiff back, but it became apparent pretty quick — he was throwing on flat ground and it kind of tightened up on him," Francona said. "So they came back in in a hurry. 

 

"We walked through, kind of put the doctor on the spot, and he said, 'I can’t...

Beltre on ejection: 'I wasn't talking to him'

 Adrian Beltre explained that when he was ejected by home plate umpire Dan Bellino just prior to starting the third inning of the Red Sox' 4-2 loss to the Mariners he was talking some friendly "smack" to Seattle pitcher Felix Hernandez and didn't say a word to the ump. Bellino tossed Beltre while the third baseman was getting ready to warm up at his position, presumably believing he was still talking about a called third strike the half-inning prior. 

 

"I was talking to Felix, we had a little bet where he told me he was going to strike me out three times and I told him I was going to take him deep. He struck me out in the first at-bat and I went back to my position and he was talking smack," Beltre explained. "I was facing him, talking in spanish. I told him the next at-bat I was going to take him deep over the Monster. That's all I said to him. I heard the umpire talking to me. I told him I...

Splitsville: M's win nightcap behind Felix

 Felix Hernandez allowed just four hits and two runs over 7 1/3 innings, and Jose Lopez had two hits and drove in a pair as the Mariners salvaged a split of the day-night doubleheader with a 4-2 win over the Red Sox at Fenway Park.

 

Highlighting Boston's night of frustration were the ejections of third baseman Adrian Beltre and manager Terry Francona prior to the top of the third inning by home plate umpire Dan Bellino, a vacation replacement umpire on call-up from the Triple-A International League. Beltre apparently continued his argument of a called third strike in the bottom of the second as he took warm-up grounders at third. He raced in and had to be restrained by coaches and teammates. 

 

J.D. Drew belted a long solo homer to center field in the sixth as the Red Sox drew to within two. The Red Sox had runners on first and second with one out in the eighth, but Victor Martinez grounded out and...

Beltre, Francona ejected in third inning

Both Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre and manager Terry Francona were ejected by home plate umpire Dan Bellino in the third inning of the team's game against the Mariners Wednesday night at Fenway Park. For Beltre it was his second career ejection, with the only other one coming Aug. 24, 2002. It was Francona's third ejection of the season, and 29th for his career.

 

Beltre was first to be ejected by Bellino, rushing in from his position at third base during warm-ups prior to the top of the third to continue an argument that started after the third baseman was called out on strikes in the second inning. While Beltre was sprinting in to engage Bellino in the argument, second base umpire Angel Hernandez sprinted from his position to get between the player and the umpire.

 

Francona's ejection came after he continued the argument with Bellino, with the disagreement getting more heated after Beltre had already adjourned to...
