Brady on Rush: 'Would I get a raise?'

 

FOXBORO — Tom Brady was asked his thoughts Wednesday on Rush Limbaugh's interest in purchasing the St. Louis Rams. "Would I get a raise?" Brady asked very rhetorically. "I would feel a lot better as a Republican, less taxes to pay. Who knows what will happen with that," laughed the quarterback, who was then asked whether he had further reaction. "Not really, a lot of people have been weighing in on it the last few days," Brady said before adding, 'Uhh, no comment." Limbaugh is one of several parties who have expressed interest in purchasing the St. Louis franchise, if and when it hits the open market. The family of the late Georgia Frontiere has hired the firm of Goldman Sachs to look into putting the NFL team up for sale.

Belichick on Seau: 'Not too many of those coming down the pike'

FOXBORO - The Patriots welcomed back veteran linebacker Junior Seau on Wednesday at Gillette Stadium. "He's a pretty special guy, I think we all know that," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. "Physically, his make-up, his instincts, he's just a football player, and a real good one. He's a Hall of Fame guy. There's not too many of those coming down the pike." Seau made his first appearance at Patriots practice on Wednesday wearing his customary No. 55 while Derrick Burgess switched to No. 53. For much more, visit the football blog It Is What It Is

Francona defends strategy on D&H

Red Sox manager Terry Francona checked in with Dale & Holley for his final regular Wednesday interview of the year. Francona talked about the disappointment of the season ending with a sweep in the ALDS at the hands of the Angels. Noting that the Sox won 95 games in the regular season, he said people need to be cautious about overreacting to the playoff meltdown.

 

"We exited real quick in the playoffs and that is distressing to all of us," Francona said. "If we make moves out of a reaction to that, it would be a mistake."

 

Francona was asked about the decision in Game 3 to walk Torii Hunter and load the bases for Vladimir Guerrero, who delivered the game-winning two-run single off Jonathan Papelbon.

 

"Nobody will able to convince me that was the wrong move," Francona said. "I would do that again every single time because i know it was the right thing to do."...

Seau would reconsider 'If I had a ring'

FOXBORO — During his re-introductory news conference at Gillette Stadium this morning, Junior Seau admitted that he likely wouldn't be returning to the Patriots if he had won a Super Bowl championship already. "If I had a ring in place, I'd probably think otherwise," Seau said. The 40-year-old, 12-time Pro Bowl linebacker was re-signed by the Patriots on Wednesday and will be at practice as the team prepares for the Tennessee Titans this Sunday at Gillette Stadium.

Julien shakes up Bruins' lines

WILMINGTON -- Looking to shake up a stagnant hockey team, Claude Julien made some subtle changes to the forward lines at Bruins practice on Wednesday morning. Julien shuttled an underperforming Milan Lucic down to the second line with David Krejci and Blake Wheeler, and bumped Michael Ryder up alongside Marc Savard and Marco Sturm. The move allows Sturm to switch over to his natural left wing position on Boston's top line, and gives Lucic a little something to think about after playing without his normal fire through the last few games. For more notes from B's practice, check in with the Big Bad Blog.
