Report: Rangers sign Kevin Cash

According to the Baseball America transactions log, the Rangers signed catcher Kevin Cash. Cash, 32, spent the second half of this season with the Red Sox, who acquired him in exchange for Angel Sanchez from the Astros in the first week of July after both Victor Martinez and Jason Varitek landed on the disabled list with broken bones. In his second stint with the Sox, Cash appeared in 29 games, hitting .133/.224/.150/.374 in 68 plate appearances.

 

The catcher had been contemplating retirement after the season, but he apparently decided to delay such a move in order to sign with the defending AL champions.

Neely: Bruins 'prepared' to clear cap space

Bruins president Cam Neely, in an interview on The Big Show on Thursday, lauded his team's strong start, while noting that the team needs to continue working towards playing more consistent hockey. The Bruins have excelled in the third period this year, and the team is now working to figure out how to translate that excellence to the start of games.

 

Neely also said that the Bruins "have been preparing" to make the necessary moves to get under the salary cap when Marco Sturm and Marc Savard are ready to return from the long-term injured reserve. While the team must shed payroll, thus limiting the type of player whom it can get in return for whatever members of the roster it will deal, Neely said that the Bruins have been preparing to ensure that any deal does not jeopardize the club's Stanley Cup ambitions.

 

"We knew this was coming. We’ve prepared for this. We have been preparing for this," said...

Pats practice: Brady back

FOXBORO -- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady returned to practice on Thursday as the team continued its preparations for the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night at Heinz Field. 

 

Brady missed Wednesday's practice and was listed on the injury report. In addition to his typical shoulder issue, Brady was listed as having a foot injury, which the Boston Globe later reported was sprain but not serious enough to keep him from Sunday's game. 

 

The only players not spotted at Thursday's practice were safety Jarrad Page (calf) and defensive lineman Myron Pryor (back). The team worked in full pads on the upper fields outside Gillette Stadium. For more, visit the Patriots team page at weei.com/patriots and the blog It Is What It Is

Mayo: 'Best medicine for this team' is road win

FOXBORO -- Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo said there's only one thing that will fix what's ailing the Patriots - a big road win. Tom Brady said coach Bill Belichick was tough on the team this week in film study, a point that Mayo supported on Thursday. But Mayo believes the best thing for the team in their effort to put the 34-14 loss in Cleveland behind them is a win in Pittsburgh against another 6-2 team.

 

"I think the best medicine for this team is to go on the road and have a big win against Pittsburgh," Mayo said. "We're kind of down this week but at the same time, Coach Belichick has done a good job picking up our spirits, telling us we're a good team."

 

Asked how hard it's been to put last Sunday in the past, Mayo said he and the team have already moved on.

 

"I'm on the Steelers, ask me a Steelers question," Mayo added. "That Browns game, I'm trying to get it...

Light on NFL fines: 'Fairness is a concern'

FOXBORO -- NFL Players Association boss DeMaurice Smith traveled to Foxboro Thursday to meet with Patriots player rep Matt Light and the team, listening to their concerns as the NFLPA continues to take steps to decertify the union in preparation for the possibility of a lockout by owners next season. 

 

But there is another pressing concern players want to address with their union leader - player safety and the need to include player input on a panel that hands out sometimes harsh fines for violent hits each week. To this point, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has had that voice and has incurred the criticism of players around the league for handing out fines for hits without first gathering input from former and current players.
