Patriots release DT Stroud
By: Anonymous

On the same morning that the team reportedly acquired defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth from the Redskins, WEEI.com's Christopher Price has confirmed the Patriots have released Marcus Stroud. The Boston Herald was the first to report the story.

Stroud, a three-time All-Pro with the Jaguars, played the last two seasons for the Bills before being released in February. He then took a two-year with the Pats, but never took the field with the team.

Crawford out as Sox look for third straight

Carl Crawford is again out of the lineup for the Red Sox as the club looks to win its third straight over Kansas City on Thursday at Fenway Park. The left fielder was 1-of-11 in the first two games of the Royals series (including an 0-of-6 with four strikeouts Monday) before Terry Francona gave him the day off Wednesday.

“The last couple of nights he’s been jumping a little bit," Francona said before the game Wednesday.

Yamaico Navarro -- in for Marco Scutaro at shortstop Thursday -- started in place of Crawford in left field in Wednesday's 12-5 win over the Royals. Drew Sutton will start in LF on Thursday for the first-place Sox, who will have Josh Beckett on the mound. Beckett -- 9-3 with a 2.07 ERA -- will be opposed by Luke Hochevar (6-8, 5.29).

Lineup:

Ellsbury, CF

Pedroia, 2B

Gonzalez, 1B

Youkilis, 3B

Ortiz, DH

Reddick, RF

Sutton, LF

Varitek, C

Navarro, SS...

Celtics' pick Moore signs overseas

Celtics unsigned second-round draft pick E'Twaun Moore inked a one-year, $200,000 contract overseas with Italian club Benetton Treviso, according to Sportando.net.

Over the last week, Moore had reportedly come close to signing a deal with another Italian team, Cimberio Varese, in the same league (Lega Serie A), but talks broke down over an opt-out clause that would allow him to return to the Celtics when the NBA lockout comes to an end. Moore's agent Mark Bartlestein did negotiate that opt-out clause as part of the deal with Treviso, according to multiple reports.

The No. 55 selection in the 2011 NBA draft, Moore averaged 18.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.2 assists as a senior for the Purdue Boilermakers.

Schefter: Hayensworth deal 'minimal risk'

Adam Schefter of ESPN joined the Dennis & Callahan show on Thursday to discuss the trade of Albert Haynesworth to the Patriots. It was Schefter who first reported that the Patriots dealt a fifth-round pick in 2013 to the Redskins to land the talented but troubled Haynesworth.

"It's minimal risk, because the Redksins have already paid him the majority of his money," Schefter said of Haynesworth, who signed a seven-year, $100 million deal with the Redskins in February 2009. "They've given him all his bonus money. Haynesworth is expected to make $5 million this year. If he comes in and plays well, performs and practices, he'll make his money with a chance to get a new deal in New England or somewhere. And if he doesn't, they can cut him and the cost is basically a fifth-round pick in 2013. ... So, you tell me: What's the risk to come up with a guy that, if they can get him to play, is a dominant defensive lineman -- dominant."...

Source: Sox 'concerned' about Buchholz

Clay Buchholz, on the disabled list since mid-June to what was initially considered a minor back strain, is slated to see a specialist either towards the end of the this week or early next week to re-examine his back. That consultation reflects the fact that, according to one source familiar with the matter, the Sox are "very concerned" that the right-hander may be dealing with a structural issue (perhaps related to a bone) rather than a muscular issue.

Even though the pitcher has experienced improvement during his time on the disabled list, the deliberate pace of Buchholz' recovery and the persistence of soreness in his lower back suggest that the issue may be something more than a common muscle strain. Instead, the Sox want Buchholz to see a specialist to determine whether the back pain is a symptom of a larger problem. The team will get a better handle on the problem once Buchholz visits with the specialist, something that could result either...
