After hosting a Q&A event with fans in London last weekend, a British website, BritViewNFL.com caught up with Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, in an interview touching on a number of different subjects.
With Patriots beating the Colts 45-7 in last year’s AFC championship game on their way to winning the Super Bowl, as well as knocking them out of the playoffs the year prior, Luck discussed the Patriots, noting how the Colts “respect” them, but also with them winning the Super Bowl, every team would like to take them down.
“The Patriots are obviously the defending Super Bowl...
A look at the action in the Red Sox farm system on Monday:
TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (38-48): L, 3-2, at Syracuse (Nationals)
— LHP Brian Johnson (Boston’s No. 6 prospect at MLB.com), making his first start since being removed due to illness on June 29 after throwing five pitches, took the loss (8-6, 2.73 ERA) despite allowing just two unlucky earned runs over five innings.
With two outs in the second inning, PawSox second baseman Jonathan Roof lost an easy pop fly in the afternoon sun and the batter reached as the ball fell on the infield dirt on what was ruled a base hit. The next batter connected on a two-run double over the head of left fielder...

AROUND THE WEB:
Jon Lester lost two no-hit bids on Monday night against the Cardinals, and one of them has been a long time coming.
In the second inning against former teammate John Lackey, Lester lined an infield single off of Lackey’s shin, legging out the first hit of his career.
Lester had started his career 0-for-66 (with another 0-for-5 in the World Series) before he finally ended his record run of futility. It was the longest hitless streak to start a career in big league history.
Lester had another no-hit bid end in the seventh when Jhonny Peralta lined a single off the glove of third baseman Kris Bryant with one out. A Bryant error extended the inning, and the Cardinals went on to score two runs to take a 2-0 lead...
The Red Sox have their All-Star representative and as expected, it’s shortstop Xander … wait a minute, it’s Brock Holt?!?
In what almost certainly goes down as a surprise even to Holt himself, Royals manager Ned Yost chose the utilityman as Boston’s lone All-Star representative among the reserves announced on Monday night.
“What impressed me is his versatility,” Yost said on the selection show. “Super-utility guys should be celebrated.”
Shortstop Xander Bogaerts was widely expected to be the team’s lone All-Star, will instead appear on the five-man final-player ballot, where he’ll square off against Detroit’s Yoenis Cespedes, Minnesota’s Brian Dozier, New York’s Brett Gardner and Kansas City’s Mike Moustakas.
While the choice is a surprise, Holt isn’t undeserving....
