Belichick on Ocho: 'Other options are better'

FOXBORO -- On the first day of June minicamp, Bill Belichick said he hadn't given much thought to the release last week of wide receiver Chad Ochocinco. One receiver who will get an opportunity is Jesse Holley, the receiver who won a tryout in Cowboys camp in 2009 after winning a competition on Michael Irvin's reality show. The Patriots signed him this week as part of their roster manuvering. 

"We've added and released a number of players here in the last couple of weeks," said Belichick, before alluding to the release of Ochocinco. "With all the players coming in, there's an opportunity for them. With the players we released, we feel like for whatever reason, it's time to move on and there are other options that are better for the team."

Asked directly about why Ochocinco was cut in New England, Belichick said simply that's in the past. 

"I don't know. Bottom line is that's in the past," Belichick...

Rosenthal: Dodgers interested in Youkilis

MLB on FOX reporter and FOXSports.com senior baseball writer Ken Rosenthal was a guest of the Dennis & Callahan Show on Tuesday morning. Rosenthal was asked about recent trade rumors surrounding Kevin Youkilis. Rosenthal had a report over the weekend that the Pirates have inquired about Youkilis, who is hitting .224 with four home runs and 13 RBI in 36 games this season.

"There are some complications here, as you guys know," Rosnethal said. "First, it's a declining performance. He's not really hitting since coming back, about .233, I believe. And he's slowed down at third base, better at first at this point. His body breaks down, all that, plus he's owed about $8 million for the rest of this year plus the $1 million buyout. It's not conducive to making a trade, all of these factors. The other issue is what do you get back? That's what people always want to know, and that is part of the problem. You're not going to get...

Mashup: Ex-Sox Bay hits new low with Mets

As bad as things have been for the Red Sox, they've been worse for former Sox slugger Jason Bay. The Mets outfielder, in his third subpar season in New York after signing a four-year, $66 million free agent deal, returned from six weeks on the disabled list (fractured rib) and went 0-for-11 over the weekend as the Mets were swept by the Yankees. Bay is hitting .197 with three home runs and five RBIs in 61 at-bats this year, showing few signs of being the player who contributed in a number of ways during his brief stint in Boston.

"Production-wise, it hasn't been on par, I understand that, but I still feel like I can do those things -- that is the frustrating part," Bay told the New York Post. "If I didn't feel like I can do it, I think it wouldn't be that tough. You wouldn't be so hard on yourself, but I feel like I can do it and it's just been a couple of years of searching for it."

Bay, who hit 36 home runs with the Red Sox in...

Pedroia: 'We're frustrated, everybody is'

MIAMI -- After the Red Sox suffered their seventh loss in their last eight games -- a 4-1 loss to the Marlins Monday night at Marlins Park -- Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia attempted to explain his team's mindset.

"We're frustrated, everybody is," Pedroia said. "We want to win. We've got guys that care and we expect to do something special. We're going to continue to work and try to be a great team."

With the loss, the Red Sox fall to three games under .500 (29-32) for the first time since May 16.

Doing the Sox in during the series-opener was a combination of starter Josh Beckett allowing four runs in the first two innings, and a Red Sox offense that came into Monday night hitting just .221 with the majors' second-worst OPS .618 in its previous seven contests.

"Well, we don’t have a lot of options on the lineup," said Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, whose team finished with five hits (3 from...

Bard allows run in inning for PawSox

Daniel Bard allowed a run on a single and a walk while striking out two in his second Triple-A appearance. The right-hander entered the game against the Gwinnett Braves at the start of the sixth inning. He gave up a ground ball single, and then after a passed ball advanced the runner to second, issued a walk. A double stela put runners on second and third with no outs, but after a run-scoring groundout, Bard came back to strike out the next two hitters -- one swinging and one looking -- to strand a runner on third.
