Report: Sox interested in Duchscherer

FoxSports.com is reporting that, according to one major-league source, the Red Sox are showing interest in pitcher Justin Duchscherer. The right-handed free agent didn't pitch in the majors in 2009, partially due to a bout with clinical depression. Duchscherer, a two-time All-Star, underwent hip surgery in '08 (similar to that performed on Sox' third baseman Mike Lowell), and arthroscopic surgery on his throwing elbow last March. He had served as a reliever for Oakland from 2004-07 before going 10-8 with a 2.54 as a starter in '08. The report states the Sox would be looking at Duchscherer as a starting pitcher.

Bergeron, B's seek perfect road trip

Despite having loaded three straight wins onto their plate, the Bruins are hungry for more and will look to complete a prefect four-game road trip in a contest against the Minnesota Wild tonight (8 p.m.).

 

“The road trip is not over, we can’t be satisfied with three wins,” said Patrice Bergeron, who has played a big part in the Bruins' recent success. “The past three games we’ve kept to a simple, simple road game. That’s what we have to do in Minnesota, it’s a loud building.”

 

The Bruins will return home to host the New Jersey Devils at noon Friday and division rival Ottawa at 7 p.m. on Saturday.

Brady: 'You never forget that day'

FOXBORO  --  For the first time since winning Super Bowl XXXVI, the Patriots will return to the Louisiana Superdome on Monday night to take on the 10-0 Saints. "That was the last time we were there," Tom Brady recalled Wednesday. "Mr. [Robert] Kraft came in [Wednesday] and talked to the team about that. He talked about the special memories of that place. You never forget that day. That was pretty unbelievable for all of us. A lot of us, your first chance to play in the Super Bowl and winning the Super Bowl under the circumstances of course of that season and that year, with 9/11 happening and U2 performing at halftime, it was pretty unbelievable."

Pats' Bodden wins AFC honors

The Patriots announced Wednesday morning that CB Leigh Bodden has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week by the National Football League for his performance in New England’s 31-14 victory over the Jets last Sunday. It is the first time that Bodden has earned the AFC Defensive Player of the Week honor. Bodden registered a career-high three interceptions against the Jets, including one that he returned 53 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter. The three interceptions tie the Patriots franchise record for interceptions in a game. It was the second time in Bodden’s career that he has had at least two interceptions in a game. He had two interceptions in a game in 2007 when he played in Cleveland. For more Patriots news, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.
