Sox still in mix for Takahashi

The Red Sox still appear to be in the mix for the services of Japanese left-hander Hisanori Takahashi, whom the Sox have extended a contract offer to. Takahashi is thought to be waiting on a few more potential suitors before deciding whether or not he will take the Red Sox' deal. If the Takahashi does sign with the Sox, it will be to compete for a job in the team's bullpen, despite the fact the 34-year-old has pitched as a starter for most of his professional career in Japan. It is believed that Takahashi will be throwing for teams that haven’t been able to scout him, at some point Monday afternoon in Arizona. Click here for a profile on Takahashi.

King on D&H: Payton 'unafraid'

Sports Illustrated columnist and NBC analyst Peter King joined Dale & Holley Monday afternoon to recap the Saints’ victory in Super Bowl XLIV and the Hall of Fame vote from this past weekend. King lauded the job done by New Orleans coach Sean Payton in the game after his series of gutsy calls. “He knows it all comes down to him, and he is totally unafraid to take the kind of chances that let’s say a Bill Parcells or Bill Belichick would try to take,” King said.

 

King also was impressed with the performance of the game’s MVP, Drew Brees, who tied Tom Brady’s Super Bowl record with 32 completions. “He started slow and ended like Phil Simms in 1987 [during the Giants' win],” King said. “So, I’ve got so much respect for Brees.”

 

King compared the Colts to a baseball team that also won only one title during an impressive decade (the 1990s). "It's...

Schilling: Sign Beckett now

Posting on his blog, 38 Pitches, former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling wrote that the Red Sox' best course of action would be to sign Josh Beckett to a new contract sooner than later. Schilling points out that Beckett, whose current deal runs out after the 2010 season, shouldn't be subject to just the statistical comparisons of other pitchers, but should also be valued for the type of presence he brings to the Red Sox' starting rotation while pitching in the American League East. Schilling writes:

 

"Josh works from a different perspective than many, it’s why he was so good so young. He pushes himself with an internal bar and set of values that not many kids have. That isn’t going to change, in fact I’d argue that it’s only gotten ‘better’ over the past few years. He knows he’s in the games toughest division, he knows who people consider the best and I...
