Lucchino: Payroll not declining

Red Sox president/CEO Larry Lucchino was a guest of the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning and refuted reports that the team's payroll has been on the decline. "Our payroll has not gone down the last two years," he said. "The newspapers may report that our payroll has gone down the last two years, but that is just not accurate. And our payroll will be higher this year. We don't discuss publicly what are payroll is because we think there's a competitive disadvantage in telling the other teams in our division and our league what we're going to spend and not spend because they may be able to do some guesses and calculations about how active we'll be in the market."

 

Lucchino said fans should not get upset when they hear the team use the word "bridge" in reference to this season. "I think there's been a gross overreaction to one word, and that word is 'bridge,' " Lucchino said. "Just look at our...

Schefter on D&C: Thomas may sit

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning and talked about the Patriots' discipline issue from this week, when coach Bill Belichick sent four players home for arriving late to a team meeting Wednesday. Schefter said that the players showed bad timing in showing up late three days after Belichick challenged the team to show a new level of commitment.

 

Said Schefter: "Apparently, coach Belichick delivered a rather stern and forceful message to them in the postgame locker room [Sunday]. He told them, 'Look, we've lost four games on the very last possession' — four games — and they're still in first place by a game, and there's a quarter of the season left. 'This is the time to basically buckle down, zero in, focus in on everything that we've got to do get done here down the stretch.' And then what happens is on Wednesday there's the snowstorm and the...

Watson on D&C: Tiger a warning

Patriots tight end Ben Watson made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Calllahan show Friday morning and talked about the mood in the locker room as the team prepares to face the Carolina Panthers at Gillette Stadium on Sunday. As for people complaining that Watson should be more involved in the offense, the veteran toed the party line. "If the team winning means you being used in a different way, that's what you signed up for," he said.

 

Watson was asked if Tiger Woods was a topic of discussion among players, and he admitted it was occasionally. "Every now and then we talk about the latest thing that came out in the paper," Watson said. "Yesterday, we had kind of the same conversation and said what I said now: Let this be a reminder to all of us — we're all two steps away from being stupid."
