Yocum examines Lackey; 'resolution' near

According to multiple industry sources, Red Sox right-hander John Lackey ‬recently visited Dr. Lewis Yocum in California to have his right elbow examined. According to one of the sources, the Red Sox are expecting "a final resolution" in the coming days after receiving the examination's results. The source stated that the organization doesn't believe a second opinion will be necessary.

‪Lackey, who signed a five-year, $82.5 million deal with the Sox after the 2009 season, went 12-12 with a 6.41 ERA in 28 starts in 2011. His ERA was the worst in Sox history by a pitcher who threw at least 120 innings. In two years in Boston, he is 26-23 with a 5.26 ERA in 61 starts. ‬

If the worst-case scenario -- Tommy John surgery -- is realized it would have a ‪significant impact on Lackey's contract with the Sox. His deal with Boston included a vesting option at the major league minimum (currently $414,000) for a sixth season if he required season-...

Brady: Gronk 'has more fun than anybody'

Speaking on his weekly appearance on The Dennis & Callahan Show Tuesday morning, Tom Brady responded to a question regarding the photos of tight end Rob Gronkowski with adult film star Bibi Jones. Jones tweeted photos of the two, including the message, "Getting hyped with @RobGronkowski ;)" along with images of the 20-year-old wearing the Patriot player's jersey. (To see the photos click here.)

"I would have guessed there would be pictures of him somehow with his shirt off, posing or something like that," joked Brady when asked about the incident. "I'm just glad I'm no longer the one people are making fun of on a daily basis. Gronk is definitely holding in the lead there."

Asked if Gronkowski would be summoned into the office of Patriots' head coach Bill Belichick, Brady said, "He probably already knows it's coming....

Mashup: MLB says McCourt looted $189M

During Monday's legal maneuverings in a Delaware courtroom, Major League Baseball accused Dodgers owner Frank McCourt of "looting" $189 million from the team, and the name of Bryan Stow -- the fan who was beaten outside Dodger Stadium on Opening Day -- was introduced by both sides. Commissioner Bud Selig's lawyers said the Stow incident showed that McCourt provided inadequate security, while McCourt's team said mentioning Stow shows how low MLB will go in order to force out the owner.

The owner accuses Selig of causing "irreparable harm" to McCourt's reputation. MLB claims McCourt broke 10 league rules, each one grounds for termination of his franchise, and that McCourt "fabricates an absurd story about a 'furious' commissioner out to harm him."

Belichick: Haynesworth conditioning no issue

Patriots coach Bill Belichick, in his weekly appearance on The Big Show, said that the overall conditioning of Albert Haynesworth has not been an issue in the defensive lineman's relatively limited playing time, instead suggesting that injuries have impacted his game readiness.

"I wouldn’t say that conditioning, per se, is a problem. He came in and passed the conditioning test when he got here," said Belichick. "The issue has been that he’s missed some time on the field which has affected his conditioning. ... There have been a couple setbacks from an opportunity to practice and condition standpoint. But I wouldn’t say that it’s a conditioning issue. I would say that the time he’s missed has limited his opportunity to get out on the field and getting more game-ready, which everyone needs." 

That said, when asked if improved health would mean more snaps for Haynesworth, Belichick was non-...
