Crawford back in sixth spot for Sox

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Red Sox look for a third straight win over the Rangers on Thursday night, a win that would mean a 6-2 record on this eight-game road trip and move the club (79-50) to season-best 30 games over .500.

Andrew Miller (5-1, 4.99) gets the start for the Sox. He will be opposed by Alexi Ogando (12-5, 3.30). 

Carl Crawford -- 9 for 26 on the road trip with a pair of home runs and a seven-game hit streak -- returns to the sixth spot in the lineup. He had hit seventh in each of the last six games.

Belichick on Rex's praise: 'I'll take it'

FOXBORO -- The hostility between the Jets and the Patriots softened a bit on Thursday when Bill Belichick sounded a gracious tone when responding to Rex Ryan's gushing compliment of the Patriots coach on Wednesday. 

Ryan told the NFL Network's Michael Irvin that "Bill Belichick is the best coach in this game; I don't even think it's close."  

Belichick responded on Thursday.

"It's a nice compliment," he said. "I'll take it. Don't think it really means anything, but it's nice. I think we all know I have a lot of respect for him and their program down there, too, so come right back at him with that one." 

Ryan said during the interview that he's confident with his resume and his accomplishments but sees Belichick as the ultimate motivation. 

“I can put my resume out there, stats, with anybody that’s ever coached in this league," Ryan said. "That’s...

Rosenthal: Theo 'intrigued' by Cubs opening

Fox baseball analyst Ken Rosenthal checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning for a discussion of Red Sox and MLB news.

The Cubs president/general manager job is open, and there have been rumors that Red Sox GM Theo Epstein could have an interest, despite having one year left on his deal in Boston.

"I don't know who is at the top, but if I were the Cubs, [Brian] Cashman, Theo, Andrew Friedman, every current GM who has had some success and cache would be at the top of my list," Rosenthal said. "And I would call on every single on of them and see which ones can come. Theo has a year left on his contract. Theo, like everyone else in baseball, is intrigued by this job. You cannot look at the situation and not be intrigued. It is much like the Red Sox situation before they won. It is potentially a great thing. So, I can see where there's interest and I could even see the Cubs asking permission. I have a...

Mashup: Phils' Matthews calls Mets 'crybabies'

Phillies announcer (and former major leaguer) Gary "Sarge" Matthews wasn't shy about expressing his feelings toward the Mets Wednesday. During the game, Mets pitcher Mike Pelfrey hit Placido Polanco with a pitch and then got into a brief argument with the Phillie, accusing him of leaning into the pitch. After the contest, Matthews saw a reporter from the New York Daily News and said: "Tell them Sarge said it — the Mets are crybabies. That's why they lose." Matthews, whose son, Gary Matthews Jr., was released by the Mets last season, punctuated his point by making two fists and pretending to wipe tears from his eyes. "Make sure you have tears, like this," he said. Responded Mets manager Terry Collins: "I don't give a [expletive]."
