Cherington: 'We were wrong' with expectations

There were certainly high expectations for the 2015 Red Sox as going into the season with the acquisitions of Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval some thought the Red Sox offense could score 800 runs.

That’s been far from the case as the team has averaged 4.13 runs per game, 16th in the baseball. It’s not just the offense either, as overall the team is 45-58 and 13 games behind the Yankees in the AL East.

There’s plenty of blame to be thrown around, but speaking following the trade deadline pasing Friday, general manager Ben Cherington said he’s the person who should be blamed the most.

“Look, obviously the results are the results and that means the team we built is not as good...

Judge wants Brady, Goodell at conference

It seems things are getting closer and closer to getting resolved in the Tom Brady Deflategate case.

According to several reports, New York Judge Richard Berman has scheduled a settlement conference for Wednesday, August 12 in which he’s requested both Tom Brady and Roger Goodell be present.

“Let’s see what we can accomplish at that conference,” Berman wrote in the order.

He also requests the two sides keep talking before the conference.

“Lastly, I request that you all engage in comprehensive, good-faith settlement discussions prior to the conference on August 12, 2015,” he wrote.

The Patriots likely won’t have a full practice Aug. 12 as it is the day before their preseason opener against...

Cherington: Sox didn't get 'compelling' offers

The Red Sox were involved in many trade discussions this week, but ultimately the trade deadline passed without any major moves being made.

The team did acquire reliever Ryan Cook from the Athletics in a cash deal.

“We had a busy few days. We worked on a lot of stuff,” general manager Ben Cherington said. “Talked about a lot of stuff. Big, small, in between. In the end we didn’t find enough compelling to do much. It just didn’t come our way. Thought we had a really productive week, nonetheless. We know a lot more about what may or may not be in play for us going forward in the offseason.”

There certainly wasn’t the same buzz around this year’s trade deadline as last year...

Bernard Pollard: Brady shouldn't be suspended

One of Tom Brady‘s fiercest rivals doesn’t believe the quarterback should be suspended for four games.

Former Kansas City safety Bernard Pollard, who delivered the blow in the 2008 opener that knocked Brady out for the rest of the season, told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Friday that he doesn’t believe the Patriots quarterback deserved to be banned for his role in Deflategate.

“I do not like Tom Brady as a competitor or someone that is playing against him, because he’s a competitive player,” said Pollard, who is a free agent. “But I respect the piss out of him because the guy knows how to win. You can say whatever you want to say about him, but he is a true champion. He understands it....

Red Sox acquire reliever Ryan Cook from A's

The Red Sox did make one move at the Friday’s trade deadline, although it certainly wasn’t a big one.

Manager John Farrell said the team received right-hander reliever Ryan Cook from the A’s in a cash deal. In four games with the A’s this season he has a 10.38 ERA. He was an All-Star in 2012 when he recorded 14 saves and had a 2.09 ERA with Oakland.

“We acquired him as a middle reliever. I don’t have the exact time he will arrive here. This is something that came down within the last few minutes,” Farrell said.

“This is a guy that has been a closer in the past,” he added. “Again, I know that there’s been some change of role out in Oakland and as we did with Jean Machi to come in and take a look at him. This will be a very...
