Wilfork issues statement via Twitter

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork, who was named prominently in a Yahoo! Sports report about improprieties within the football program at the University of Miami, issued a statement Wednesday via his Twitter feed. Wilfork wrote: I am aware of the report that has claims that involve me while at the U. While the NCAA and the U conduct their investigations [my wife] and I believe that it is not appropriate for us to comment. Thanks for your continued support and confidence in me.

The report alleges that Wilfork accepted $50,000 while he was a player at the University of Miami in order to sign with Axcess Sports, a player agency started by Nevin Shapiro and Michael Huyghue. A seperate page of the report details the benefits to Wilfork while he was at Miami. Shapiro is in jail for his role in a $930 million Ponzi scheme. Huyghue, who is now the commissioner of the UFL denied the claims made by Shapiro.

Pedroia: 'We need to start winning'

Despite losing two of three to the Rays in a brief homestand at Fenway this week, the Red Sox remain eight games ahead of the Rays for the wild card lead in the American League. But that's not the goal in mind for Dustin Pedroia, who said after Wednesday's 4-0 loss to Tampa Bay that the team needs to find a way to rediscover its offense, even if they're missing David Ortiz, J.D. Drew and Marco Scutaro and Kevin Youkilis isn't full strength. 

"We need to start winning some games," Pedroia said. "I mean, we all want to win the division. The Yankees aren't going to lose, so you've got to win, man. It doesn't matter who you run out there. You've got to win." 

The Yankees have overtaken the Red Sox for first in the AL East, with Boston falling a full game back with Wednesday's loss. The Red Sox led the division by 2.5 games on Aug. 9. Jarrod Saltalamacchia said the Red Sox just couldn't solve tough pitching against the...

Dog day afternoon: Sox stay silent in loss

Lefty David Price held the Red Sox to three hits over eight scoreless innings and Ben Zobrist drove in two runs and doubled twice as the Rays beat the slumping Red Sox, 4-0, Wednesday afternoon at Fenway. The trio of James Shields, Jeff Niemann and Price held the Red Sox to just five runs and nine hits in the three games, the last two won by Tampa Bay. 

The Rays jumped out on top in the first when Darnell McDonald misplayed a Johnny Damon single, allowing Damon to reach second. The former Red Sox star outfielder scored on a Zobrist groundout to put the Rays up, 1-0. 

The Rays upped their lead to 3-0 on solo homers by B.J. Upton and Evan Longoria in the fourth and fifth, respectively off Red Sox starter and loser John Lackey, who threw a season-high 125 pitches. Lackey (11-9) was touched for six hits and four runs - three earned - in 6 2/3 innings. The righty walked three and fanned seven and has thrown 351 pitches in his last three...

Ortiz: Out 'hopefully no more than a week'

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz said that he hopes to miss “no more than a week” while recovering from bursitis, a condition that has created significant pain in the region above his left heel and below the Achilles. The slugger said that he is feeling better on Wednesday than he did on Tuesday, when pain while running forced him out of the lineup prior to Game 1 of the Sox' doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The 35-year-old said that he first experienced discomfort during Sunday's game against the Mariners. He took anti-inflammatories, and an off-day on Monday allowed him to feel better, but by Tuesday, he was unable to run.

"I was feeling better right after I came out of there. But it was an in-the-moment thing, I guess," said Ortiz. "We’re just working on it. The doctor wants me to rest for three to four days."

Ortiz characterized the condition as "very painful," and...

Eli Manning: I'm in Brady's class

Eli Manning was a guest of ESPN Radio in New York on Wednesday. During his interview with Michael Kay, Manning was asked if he puts himself in the same class with Tom Brady as a quarterback. 

"I consider myself in that class," Manning said. "Tom Brady is a great quarterback, he’s a great player and what you’ve seen with him is he’s gotten better every year and he started off winning championships and I think he’s a better quarterback now than what he was, in all honesty, when he was winning those championships. It’s funny, you say well he won championships, but the team, but I think know he’s grown up and gotten better every year and that’s what I’m trying to do. I kind of hope these next seven years of my quarterback days are my best.” 

Manning threw for 4,002 yards and a career-best 31 touchdowns in leading the Giants to a 10-6 record last season, but paced all...
