Source: Rangers to examine Lowell

According to sources familiar with the situation, the Texas Rangers will be examining Mike Lowell's left thumb in-person at some point this week. One source confirmed that the deal that would send the third baseman to Texas (along with $9 million of his $12 million 2010 salary) for minor league catcher/first baseman Max Ramirez will not be completed until the Rangers examine Lowell. No scheduled meeting had been arranged as of Sunday night. The condition of the thumb is serious enough of an issue that it -- along with at least one other issue unrelated to either player's physical condition -- is holding up the trade's completion. The Red Sox are also in the process of evaluating the health of Ramirez' wrists, both of which he had issues with in the '09 season. 

Lowell has a history of problems with his left thumb, most recently having injured it at the end of the '09 regular season, playing a role in him missing the final series of the season...

Pats reign in Panthers

FOXBORO  --  Tom Brady connected with Ben Watson on a five-yard go-ahead TD late in the third quarter as the Patriots held on for a 20-10 win over the Carolina Panthers at a rainy Gillette Stadium. Wes Welker had another huge day for the Patriots, hauling in 10 catches for 105 yards. Trailing 7-0, the Patriots were frustrated for nearly the entire first half. A questionable pass interference call set up the Patriots in the red zone, followed moments later by a two-yard TD run by Kevin Faulk. Brady appeared to be affected by numerous injuries, including his ribs, finger and shoulder. Brady finished 19-of-32 for 192 yards and the TD pass to Watson that put the Patriots up 14-7 with 1:07 left in the third quarter. It was a rough game for injuries, as Ty Warren, Vince Wilfork and Nick Kaczur all left with injuries in the second half and did not return. The Pats improved to 8-5, remaining in sole possession of first in the AFC East. For complete...
