Brady on lawsuit: I've got no reaction to that one

FOXBORO — Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did not offer any specific reaction on Wednesday to the $1 million lawsuit filed against him and his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, this week. Two photographers sued Brady and Bundchen on Tuesday, saying they were shot at during a post-wedding party in Costa Rica. "I've got no reaction to that one," Brady said Wednesday. The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan alleged that the photographers, who were not struck, suffered physical and mental harm from the attack during a celebration in early April at Bundchen's home. It also said Brady and Bundchen hired improperly trained security guards for the April party, two months after their wedding, even though they had to know their activities were a press magnet.

Belichick: We never talked to KC about Gonzalez

FOXBORO — Patriots coach Bill Belichick said he never spoke to the the Kansas City Chiefs about acquiring perennial Pro Bowl tight end Tony Gonzalez, even though Scott Pioli left New England and assumed the general manager's role with the Chiefs. Instead, Pioli dealt Gonzalez to the Atlanta Falcons for a second-round draft pick in 2010. "We signed Chris [Baker], and we have Ben [Watson] and we didn't really get into that," Belichick said. "I never talked about it, no. We never talked about it. I never talked to Scott about Tony Gonzalez." The Patriots will have to cover Gonzalez this Sunday when the Patriots host the Falcons.

Beckett: 'I just needed a little breather'

Josh Beckett explained the importance of getting an extra days rest, which will have been the case when he pitches against the Royals, Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium, saying, "“I just needed a little breather. We’ve been talking about it and to have the luxury to be able to do it is important. It was just a mutual decision. It wasn’t just them or me." When pitching on one extra days rest this season Beckett is 8-0 with a 2.23 ERA. For more on why Beckett felt the extra rest was so important heading into the season, and what he was going through during his struggles in August, click here.

Red Sox stifled by Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Paul Byrd allowed five runs in the first inning, and Kansas City starter Zack Greinke gave up just two hits in six innings as the Royals posted a 5-1 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium. "It's a shame I didn't get off to a better start. That changes the whole game," Byrd said. "That's what was really frustrating for me. We're out of the game by the first." Byrd settled down, not surrendering a run in his final 5-2/3 innings, leaving with two outs and the bases loaded in the seventh inning. Manny Delcarmen retired the final out of the seventh to keep the Sox within five at the time. The Sox' lone run came in the eighth inning when Jacoby Ellsbury scored on a fielder's choice grounder by Victor Martinez. Earlier in the game, Martinez extended his hitting streak to 21 games with a single. For more, see the Full Count Blog.
