Beltre: 'I do hope I stay with the Red Sox'

Free agent Adrian Beltre said Thursday that he would like to remain a member of the Red Sox. "These guys are my friends and they made me feel part of the team," Beltre told The Boston Globe. "There's a lot going on right now, but I do hope I stay with the Red Sox."

 

Beltre, who flew from Los Angeles to the Dominican Republic to take part in David Ortiz' charity event, said he has a deal on the table, but he did not identify which team it's from. "I could make a deal right now if I wanted to," he said. "But I want to wait and make sure I make the right decision."

 

The A's reportedly are in pursuit of the third baseman, who hit .321 with 28 home runs and 102 RBI for the Sox last season. But Beltre said his enjoyed the experience in his first season in Boston.

 

"I got used to seeing that park full in the first inning and still full in the ninth inning. I liked...

Patriots cut Woods, add Moore

The Patriots announced Friday they have signed defensive end/outside linebacker Eric Moore and released outside linebacker Pierre Woods.

Here's part of the announcement that was issued by the team on the move:

Moore, 6-4, 268 pounds, is a veteran of four NFL seasons with the New York Giants (2005), New Orleans Saints (2006) and St. Louis Rams (2006-08). He spent the last seven games of the 2009 season on the Carolina practice squad and went to training camp with the Panthers in 2010 but was waived on Sept. 4.

Moore originally entered the NFL as a sixth-round draft pick by the New York Giants out of Florida State in 2005. After playing in eight games as a rookie in 2005, Moore was released by the Giants following training camp in 2006. He was then signed to the New Orleans’ practice squad before being signed to the 53-man roster and playing in four games for the Saints. After being waived from the Saints, he finished...

Mayo on D&C: 'This game is huge'

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo joined the Dale & Holley show Friday morning, and he said he believes the extra time off from playing on Thanksgiving will help his team in Monday night's contest against the Jets. "Having those extra days off to prepare for a great team, we're getting more comfortable in the game plan, we're confident in the game plan," Mayo said. "I think we'll play fast on Monday night."

 

Mayo explained how the team may have rested physically during the extended break but stayed mentally sharp. "Coach [Bill Belichick] gave us a couple of days off as far as the physical stretches on the body," he said. "At the same time, we had to come in and watch film, watch a lot of film, and break down a lot of games. All that time that we weren't on the practice field, we were definitely in the film room watching film."

 

Mayo leads the NFL in tackles...

Taylor on D&H: 'I'm ready to play'

Patriots running back Fred Taylor joined the Dale & Holley show Friday morning and pronounced himself ready to go on Monday night vs. the Jets, although he said the final decision is up to the team.

 

"I'm ready to play," he said. "I'm going through practice preparing the best that I can. I'm ready to play. [The coaches] just said, 'We'll decide later.' It's a process. Things have to occur, and things have to be right. And I'm not trying to give you a politically correct answer, I'm just trying to do what's best for the team, in that I don't want to tip our hand to what's going on in terms of personnel moves. That might be the best answer. But I'm ready to play."

 

Taylor, out since Week 3 with turf toe, was dressed for the Patriots' Thanksgiving Day win over the Lions but did not play. "I wanted some action on that day," he admitted. "But it was more so an emergency-type deal, to get...

Ortiz on D&H: Sox should pursue Crawford

Red Sox slugger David Ortiz joined the Dale & Holley show Friday morning from his charity golf tournament in the Dominican Republic. Asked how he felt about the Red Sox picking up his option for next season, he said: "I'm fine. Like I always say, I can't wait for the season to start. … I'm happy I'm going to be around the Boston fans once again."

 

Asked which free agent he'd like to see the Red Sox pursue, Ortiz said: "Besides signing Adrian [Beltre], I would go right after Carl Crawford. He would be a good third-hole hitter."

 

"This guy's unbelievable," Ortiz continued. "He's got so many weapons to hurt you, that he's just unbelievable. His speed, his defense, the way he hits —he can hit for power, he can hit just to get on base. There's so many ways to hurt you. This guy's a serious weapon, I'm telling you right now. … I can't believe he hasn't been signed by...
