Red Sox showed interest in Capuano

A major league source told's Alex Speier that the Red Sox called to show interest in acquiring Mets left-handed pitcher Chris Capuano last week, and then again earlier this week. No deal was to be made, however, with the Mets not showing interest in the Sox' offer of only cash in the transaction.

The Boston Herald cited a source earlier stating the Sox had made inquiries about the 33-year-old Capuano, who is on a one-year contract with the Mets worth $1.5 million.

If acquired, Capuano, who is 11-12 with a 4.47 ERA this season, would not be eligible for the postseason roster.

The Springfield native has pitched well of late, allowing two runs in each of his last two starts, having gone seven and five innings, respectively. Red Sox manager Terry Francona would not commit to a starter for Sunday when asked...

Billick: Pats will beat Bills Sunday

Fox analyst and former NFL coach Brian Billick was a guest of the Dennis & Callahan show on Thursday. Billick was asked what an opposing team has to do in an attempt to slow down Tom Brady. The reigning MVP has thrown for 940 yards and seven touchdowns in the first two games of 2011.

"If you just play zone, a guy like Tom Brady will cut you up like a surgeon," said Billick. "This guy's a thoracic brain surgeon, combining the best and most difficult of the two. You have to come after Tom Brady almost every down. And you do so at great risk, because he has some guys that can get off the press and make it very difficult for you. If you think you are going to sit static with an identifiable defense, Tom Brady is just going to cut you up."

As for Sunday's showdown in Buffalo between a pair of 2-0 clubs, Billick again points to Brady when making his prediction.

"You have to be...

Mashup: Rams LB says Giants coach faking

Giants defensive lineman Deon Grant was at the center of the this week's controversy involving players faking injuries to slow down no-huddle offenses. On Wednesday, despite video that shows him walking and then suddenly flopping to the ground (along with a teammate, who got up after he saw Grant down) in Monday's game vs. the Rams, Grant attempted to claim he had injured his right knee, even going so far as to show the swelled knee to reporters as evidence. The only problem? During the play in question, Grant appeared to get treatment on his left knee.

"I went down, which is what you're supposed to do when you have an injury," Grant said. "It's just in the NFL they expect you to put your body out there all the time, so sometimes when you go down for the softest injury -- that they claim it may be -- it's a problem. But how can another person or the media or anybody else tell you when you're hurt or when it's a faking injury?"

Yanks sweep Rays to clinch AL East

The Yankees clinched their 16th postseason berth in 17 years and also secured the American League East title for the 12th time in 16 years by sweeping a double header against the Tampa Bay Rays, taking both the first and second games by 4-2 counts. At 95-60 this year, the Yankees cannot be caught by a second-place Red Sox team that has an 88-68 record with six games remaining.

The Sox were tied or had the lead for first place in the AL East for 64 days this season, but the team's dramatic September fade (a 5-16 record to date) allowed the Yankees to wrap up the division title with a week to go in the season.

While the sight of another team clinching the AL East would ordinarily be painful, the Red Sox were in a position to enjoy the Yankees' success. The Yankees' doubleheader sweep allowed Boston to gain a half-game on the Rays in the standings despite the Sox' 6-4 loss to the Orioles. The Sox are now up 2.5 games (two games in the loss column)...
