Brady backs Ocho: 'No problem' with WR

FOXBORO -- Asked about the comments from former teammate Tedy Bruschi regarding wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said Wednesday that he has “no problems” with Ochocinco “at all.”

“Everyone has an opinion on everything, and none of it really means anything,” Brady said. “The only thing that means anything are the guys in this locker room and what we do every day in practice.”

On Tuesday morning, Ochocinco tweeted about how amazing it was to watch the Patriots’ offensive display Monday night in Miami.  On Tuesday afternoon, Bruschi ripped Ochocinco while on WEEI, saying the wide receiver should “drop the awe factor,” and adding that he should “stop tweeting and get in your playbook.”

“You’re not a fan, all right?” said Bruschi. “You’re not someone who’s on another team or watching...

Marchand signs for two years
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced Wednesday that they have signed forward Brad Marchand to a two-year deal. 

Renaud P. Lavoie of RDS in Canada was the first to report the deal, which is said to be for $5 million. 

Last season, Marchand had 21 goals and 20 assists in the regular season as a rookie. He finished second behind teammate David Krejci in playoff goals with 11. He had been a restricted free agent, meaning that had he not signed this week, it was possible he may have missed part of training camp.

Vollmer returns to practice with Pats

FOXBORO -- The Patriots began their Wednesday afternoon practice session on the lower practice fields behind Gillette Stadium Wednesday afternoon, and the following players were absent: cornerback Leigh Bodden, center Dan Koppen and defensive lineman Mike Wright. Meanwhile, tackle Sebastian Vollmer, who was out of practice late last week (and missed the regular-season opener last Monday against the Dolphins) because of a back problem, returned to practice.

In addition, wide receiver Julian Edelman, safety Ross Ventrone, offensive lineman Matt Kopa and linebacker A.J. Edds were wearing black practice jerseys, denoting the fact that they were named Practice Players of the Week for their work last week in the days leading up to the game against Miami.

Wakefield on M&M: 'I'm glad it's finally over'

Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield joined Mut & Merloni Wednesday morning to talk about finally getting his 200th career victory, coming against the Blue Jays Tuesday night.

"I'm glad it's finally over with," Wakefield said. "I wish I could've gotten it done sooner, but it was definitely worth the wait to be able to do it in front of our home crowd and celebrate with them."

It took the knuckleballer eight starts to reach No. 200 after he picked up his 199th victory on July 24. He pitched six innings and gave up five runs on Tuesday against Toronto, but the Red Sox offense erupted in an 18-6 victory that gave Wakefield his milestone. Wakefield acknowledged that the chase for 200 got to him, but he tried to put the team first.

"When you get this late in the season, you always try to take yourself out of the equation and put what's most important first, and that's us winning ballgames," Wakefield said....
