Seymour said he intends to report to Oakland this weekend

In his first public comments since being traded to the Raiders last weekend, former Patriots lineman Richard Seymour told The Boston Herald he will board a flight to Oakland Saturday afternoon in anticipation of playing for the Raiders Monday night.

It's been a difficult few days for Seymour, who said he's been gathering his thoughts in anticipation of heading to Oakland.

“First of all, I was blindsided by this whole event,” said Seymour, the five-time Pro Bowler. “When you get blindsided, you should take a moment to gather your thoughts. I have a lot of personal issues more pressing than football.

“There are a lot of different emotions,” Seymour added. “Football was not my main concern at that point. I have had discussions with the Raiders… I’m excited and happy with the way they’re looking at me.”

Report: Seymour will head to Oakland this weekend and play Monday night

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Raiders are in the final stages of planning Richard Seymour’s arrival in Oakland this weekend, and the disgruntled defensive lineman will be in a Raiders uniform for Oakland’s Monday night game against San Diego. In addition, ESPN is saying Oakland did not give Seymour a new contract, nor a promise not to slap its franchise tag on him after this season. The former Patriots defensive lineman was traded to the Raiders last Sunday for a first-round pick in the 2011 draft, but the five-time Pro Bowler has yet to report to Oakland.

Matsuzaka to return on Tuesday

Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka will make his first start since June 19 on Tuesday night at Fenway against the Los Angeles Angels. In his most recent rehab outing, Matsuzaka pitched 6.2 innings and allowed one run on three hits for Single A Salem on Wednesday. He has a 1-5 record and 8.23 ERA this year, with his performance attributed by the Sox in large part due to a lack of conditioning while preparing for the World Baseball Classic. Matsuzaka is in noticeably better shape now, and the Sox are hopeful that they will see a consequent improvement in his performance.
 
The Red Sox have yet to identify their starter for Wednesday. Paul Byrd is a possibility for the start, though the team will wait to see how Sunday's double-header goes before declaring a starter for Wednesday.

Red Sox adjust weekend rotation as Lester starts Gm 2 Sunday

Jon Lester will get a day off after throwing 23 pitches in the first inning of the rained out game Friday night and will pitch in Game 2 of the day-night doubleheader on Sunday afternoon at 5:05. He will be opposed by James Shields, the same pitcher he was scheduled to face on Friday before the game was called in the top of the first. Josh Beckett will square off against Tampa Bay righty Wade Davis as scheduled on Saturday evening. And Clay Buchholz will start Game 1 on Sunday at noon against Rays righthander Matt Garza.

Red Sox and Rays postponed

Friday night's contest between the Red Sox and Rays has been postponed due to rain. The scoreless contest was in the top of the first inning with the bases loaded and one out when heavy rains began a delay. Roughly 84 minutes later, the game was called when the storm proved unrelenting. The two teams will make up the contest on Sunday as part of a doubleheader. Tickets for the Friday night contest will be honored for a noon game on Sunday, while tickets for Sunday's scheduled afternoon game will permit entrance to the 5 p.m. game.
