According to a source familiar with the situation, it will be determined in the coming days whether or not Mike Lowell needs surgery on his left thumb. As WEEI.com reported, it is expected that the Texas Rangers will examine the third baseman at some point this week. The Rangers and Red Sox have agreed upon the principles of a deal that would send Lowell and $9 million of the $12 million owned him for the 2010 season to Texas for minor league catcher/first baseman Max Ramirez. Peter Gammons was the first to report that surgery might be a possibility for Lowell, posting on Twitter. For more see the Full Count Blog.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about Sunday's win over the Panthers. He also said that he and his wife have not decided on a name for their new son, but they're down to "seven or eight choices."

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning and talked about Patriots receiver Randy Moss' much-criticized performance in Sunday's victory over the Panthers. "There are plays where you can clearly see he is flat-out dogging it," Esiason said. "Randy Moss looks like he is completely disinterested."
Esiason said Moss has proven unworthy of the team captaincy, while Wes Welker has earned the right. "I'd take the frickin' 'C' off his chest and slap it right on the guy who deserves it. These things are supposed to have meaning attached to them," Esiason said. "I doubt [Bill] Belichick would every do that, but that's what I would do."
Esiason said he didn't think Moss' punishment for being late Wednesday was the reason for the problem. "I can't imagine that a player would be so shallow to allow being...
