Gammons: Knees nixed Sox-Bay deal

According to Peter Gammons on NESN, the Red Sox and Jason Bay had agreed on the framework of a four-year, $60 million deal in July before an MRI raised concerns about both of the outfielder's knees. As a result of those concerns, Gammons said, Sox ownership reduced its offer from four years to two.

 

Gammons suggested that the dispute illustrated the need for an independent medical staff in the majors, since there is sometimes distrust by players about the health findings of doctors who are employed by a team.

 

"You had the same thing here with Jason Bay, when he agreed to the four-year, $60 million deal near the end of July and then the MRI showed some problems with both knees," Gammons said. "Ownership wanted it to be two years and he had to prove that he was healthy to be able to make it four years, and he wouldn’t sign. This is no reflection on [Red Sox team physician Dr. Thomas] Gill and the Red...

On the short end: Sens cruise

Daniel Alfredsson recorded a hat trick and Mike Fisher added three assists as the Ottawa Senators handled the Bruins, 5-1, in the MLK Day matinee at TD Garden. While Patrice Bergeron [thumb] and Dennis Wideman returned from injuries, the Bruins were forced to play without forwards Byron Bitz, Steve Begin and Marco Sturm. Those three are in addition to Marc Savard and Andrew Ference, both already on the injured list. The Bruins broke through five minutes into the third on Daniel Paille's sixth goal of the season. The Senators beat the Bruins for the first time in five meetings this season and tied the Bruins for second in the Northeast Division with 54 points. For more, visit the Big Bad Blog

Seymour: Pats have lost their way

Speaking with Michael Holley and Michael Smith this morning on WEEI, former New England defensive lineman Richard Seymour intimated the Patriots have lost their way when it comes to identifying the right kind of players for their system. (For the entire interview, check out the Dale & Holley audio on-demand page.)

“If I was a GM, I would take a less-talented guy, but a guy that really cared about football. You know, he maybe didn’t have to come from a football bloodline, but a guy that is in the weight room, is in the study room, is doing everything it takes to be a champion. And that’s the guy you want in the foxhole with you,” Seymour said.

“And that’s what the Patriots — when I was there — that’s what we were built on. We were built on those championship teams, being...
