Brady on D&C: 'A frustrating game'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning and shared his thoughts about Monday night's 38-17 loss to the Saints. Brady also touched on the Tiger Woods situation and talked about being the only one who knows the gender of the baby being carried by his wife, Gisele Bundchen.

 

Brady tried to be positive about Monday's loss. "It's not like it was all bad in terms of our execution," he said. "We're just inconsistent enough where we're not able to match a team that can score some points. It's very frustrating, but that's playing football, too. Football's a frustrating game. You get frustrated, and you've got to have some mental toughness to move forward and fight on."

 

Brady credited the Saints with having a good scheme but said the Patriots' problems are their caused by their own faults. "Those are the things we as a team have been...

Report: Braves sign Billy Wagner

FoxSports.com is reporting that reliever Billy Wagner, whom the Red Sox acquired in August, agreed to terms on a one-year, $7 million deal to close for the Atlanta Braves. The preliminary agreement would require Wagner to undergo a physical.

 

The development is a significant one for the Red Sox, who just a few hours earlier had offered the 38-year-old salary arbitration. Because Wagner is a Type A free agent who declined arbitration to sign with another club, the Sox will get additional compensation draft picks next year, one that could be as high as the No. 20 overall pick (depending on whether Atlanta signs another Type A free agent), as well as a sandwich pick between the first and second rounds of the draft.

 

Wagner had a 1.98 ERA in 15 games for the Red Sox. He struck out 22 batters in 13-2/3 regular-...

Sox offer arbitration to Bay, Wagner

As expected, the Red Sox made official their offer of salary arbitration to free agents Jason Bay and Billy Wagner. Both are Type A free agents, meaning that if either signed with another club after declining the offer of arbitration, the Red Sox would receive two compensatory draft picks (one in the sandwich round between the first and second rounds, the other as high as a first rounder from the team that signs the player).

 

Bay is certain to receive a multi-year contract this offseason, and so there is no chance that he would accept arbitration. Wagner told WEEI.com during the season that he would decline arbitration (even though he likely could make more money through arbitration than as a free agent) because he prefers to sign with a team with whom he might close.

Bruins confirm Savard 7-year deal

The Bruins issued a press release this evening formally announcing a seven-year contract extension for center Marc Savard. The team will hold a press conference tomorrow at 11:15 with GM Peter Chiarelli, coach Claude Julien and Savard to discuss the deal. Savard had told WEEI.com Monday that the contract extension was close to completion. "Hopefully we’re going to get it done because this is where I want to be," Savard said at that time. The 32-year-old has led the team in scoring for each of the past three seasons.

Minor Details Ep. 94.2 with Jim Callis of MLB.com: Are Red Sox prospects overvalued?

Particularly in a year where the Red Sox have struggled while trying to integrate numerous young players into regular big league roles, accusations that Red Sox prospects are overrated -- whether by the team or writers -- have been widespread. Jim Callis of MLB.com joins the show to take stock of the matter, and to discuss the team-building impact of overrating and underrating prospects.

With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.

Ian Browne reflects on 10th anniversary of Red Sox-Yankees brawl

A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
