Sox make Beltre, Hall official

The Red Sox officially announced the acquisition of free agent third baseman Adrian Beltre, along with utility infielder Billy Hall. Hall comes to the Sox via a trade that sends first baseman Casey Kotchman to Seattle in exchange for the 30-year-old, a minor-league player to be named later and cash. Beltre, who played for the Mariners last season, signed a one-year deal that will pay him $9 million in 2010 and includes a $5 million player option for '11. There is an escalator that could bump Beltre's option to $10 million if he makes more than 640 plate appearances in '10. The team will introduce the players at a 10 a.m. press conference at Fenway Park, Friday. For the team's press releases regarding the acquisitions see the Full Count Blog. For details of how the Sox acquired both Hall and Beltre while making only a $2 million dent in their payroll (as defined for luxury tax purposes) in 2010,...

Kelly on D&H: Pitching a 'no-brainer'

Red Sox pitching prospect Casey Kelly, who spent 2009 as both a pitcher and position player, joined the Dale & Holley show on Thursday to discuss the decision to leave behind a promising college football career, his commitment to pitching full-time in 2010, and trade rumors in which his name came up. Kelly said that he appreciated the opportunity to pursue his first pro season as both a shortstop and pitcher, but that the decision to become a full-time pitcher for the coming season was relatively straightforward.

 

"I had so much fun this year playing my first full season. The Red Sox were great about the transition between pitching and shortstop," Kelly said. "They kind of sat down with me at the end of the season, kind of laying out what happened this season, what I need to work on, a timeline for each position. When it came in the end, it was kind of a no-brainer. I’m going to be pitching full time this year and I...

Report: Weis to coach Chiefs offense

ESPN.com is reporting that former Patriots offensive coordinator, following his dismissal as the head coach at Notre Dame, will be named the offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs. Weis is close to Chiefs head coach Todd Haley, and he also worked with Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli when the two were in New England.

 

Weis declined comment on the report.

 

"Until a deal is done, I really can't say anything," Weis told the Associated Press from his home near South Bend, Ind. "It's not to be disrespectful of you or the Chiefs. I just think it's really, really important for me, especially with the prospect of there being a relationship there, to make sure I handle this properly."

Nantz on D&H: AFC wary of Pats

Jim Nantz, who will be in the broadcast booth announcing Sunday's Patriots-Ravens game on CBS, made an appearance on the Dale & Holley show Thursday morning and talked about the NFL playoffs. Said Nantz: "I keep getting back to the one thing I know about New England. I've seen them so many times. Nobody wants to be matched up against New England. In all of its success, in all of its history of finding a way to win, and the way they game-plan for these games behind coach [Bill] Belichick, I wouldn't want any part of New England if I'm in the AFC playoffs right now."

 

Nantz said if the Patriots win Sunday it would set up a marquee game the following weekend. "The Patriots know how to really get it done, they know how to get to the promised land, and you've got a team [in San Diego] that thinks it's going to get there," he said. "To me, that would be the blockbuster matchup of the divisional week." Added Nantz...
