Brady discusses sideline outburst on D&C

Appearing on the Dennis & Callahan show this morning, Tom Brady discussed the Patriots' 26-10 victory over the Falcons on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Brady addressed his sideline demeanor, as cameras showed him screaming in the area of the Patriots bench following another missed opportunity in the red zone during the second quarter.

 

"It's the heat of the moment," Brady said. "It's an emotional game, there are emotional things that you say."

 

Brady would not elaborate on what he said or if there was anyone in particular who he was mad at, although the display came right after Joey Galloway dropped a pass at the 3-yard line and Sam Aiken appeared to break off a route in the end zone and missed a ball just out of his reach.

 

"It's part of offensive football, the quarterback-receiver relationship," Brady said. "It's not that I'm right and they're wrong, we're just on...

Source: Farrell can't manage elsewhere next season

According to a major league source, Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell is not allowed, per terms of his contract, to accept a managerial position with another team prior to the 2011 season. FoxSports was the first to report the clause in Farrell's contract. Exact terms of Farrell’s current deal are unknown. According to baseball sources, Farrell initially signed a three-year deal with the Sox when he came to Boston from Cleveland for the ’07 season. Since then, however, Farrell has declined the opportunity to interview with both the Pirates (after the 2007 season) and Mariners (after last year). For more see the Full Count Blog.

Martinez' hit streak ends at 25 games

NEW YORK — Victor Martinez, who was not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game between the Red Sox and Yankees, entered the contest as a pinch-hitter for Jason Varitek, representing the tying run, in the ninth inning. He hit a broken-bat grounder to second that Robinson Cano muffed while trying to make a spinning play.
 
Martinez reached on what was ruled an error, thus ending his 25-game hitting streak, tied for the 11th-longest in Sox history. He had no beef with the ruling.
 
“Whatever [the official scorer ruled the play], that’s what it is,” Martinez said. “[The hitting streak] was fun, man. At the same time, I was helping my team somehow, getting on base or whatever. … I was just trying to help my team. If it happened, it happened. If it don’t, it don’t. I’m cool with it.”
 
Martinez hit .358 with a .425 OBP and .909 OPS during the streak.

Byrd hopes to contribute in playoffs

NEW YORK — Right-hander Paul Byrd took the loss in the Red Sox' 4-2 setback to the Yankees on Sunday. But even as he was the pitcher of record in a game that officially eliminated the possibility that the Sox might win the AL East, Byrd still believes that — after pitching 5-2/3 innings and allowing three runs — he can be a useful component for the Sox should they make the playoffs as a wild card.

 

“Can I help the team in the postseason? Absolutely. Do I have the experience? Absolutely. Am I throwing the ball well right now? Yes, I believe so, despite giving up a few runs,” said Byrd. “I’m here to help out in any way I can. If that means I cheerlead the first series and get ready for the second series, or if it means vice versa, I’m here to help this team win in any way I can and get a ring. That’s just the bottom line.”
