The Orioles are not pleased with what they perceive to be insensitivity on the part of the Yankees regarding the rescheduling of a game in Baltimore postponed by Hurricane Irene. The Yankees were pushing to cram in another game Friday afternoon in an attempt to avoid losing one of their two remaining days off in September. The Orioles, however, wanted to avoid a doubleheader on Friday partly because they were planning a tribute to Mike Flanagan, who died last week. And with Hurricane Irene affecting millions of people in the area, there was little sympathy for the ballplayers.
“First of all, I felt that some of the stuff was a little disrespectful to Flanny quite frankly,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter told MLB.com. “That didn’t sit with me very well. I can tell you that. … I’m sure if [the Yankees] stopped and thought about it, if the same thing that happened to one of their greats, that they probably would have...
Bill Belichick reserved the harshest criticism for himself and his coaching staff following a 34-10 drubbing at the hands of the Lions Saturday night at Ford Field in Detroit.
“No question who the better team was tonight," Belichick said following the Patriots' first preseason loss of the year. "Obviously, I did a poor job of having the team ready to play. We didn’t really do anything very well in any phase of the game, certainly not good enough to win. The Lions are good team, they played well and Jim [Schwartz] did a great job with his team. They were a lot more efficient, a lot more ready to play and played a hell of a lot better than our team did."
Tom Brady had a rough night, completing just 12-of-22 passes with a touchdown and an interception. Brady was roughed up by the Lions' front four all night long. The Patriots secondary was scorched by Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford for three passing plays of over...
In a stark contrast to the opening two weeks of the preseason, nearly everything that could go wrong did Saturday night as the Patriots were routed by a hungry Lions team, 34-10, at Ford Field in Detroit.
Tom Brady was hurried, hit six times, sacked once and pressured all night by an aggressive Lions defensive line, completing just 12-of-22 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown, with one interception. The interception was a costly one, as he threw down the left sideline for just before halftime and it was picked off by Ricardo Silva. Wes Welker came up, lowered his head and made a tackle, taking Silva to the field turf. Welker walked off the field and left the game with a neck injury.
Brady's only highlight was a 44-yard TD pass to Welker in the second quarter that cut Detroit's lead to 17-10 at the time. Welker finished with three catches for 71 yards while Chad Ochocinco was targeted four more times by Brady and Brian Hoyer but...
Though it took 11 hours, the Red Sox were rewarded for a long, rain-soaked day at Fenway Park with a doubleheader sweep of the Athletics. After a 9-3 win in the first contest of the day, the Sox claimed a 4-0 victory in the nightcap, with David Ortiz doing the damage early and the bullpen making the advantage stand up.
Ortiz slammed a two-run homer (his 27th) in the bottom of the second inning, and the Sox later added a pair of runs on a pair of RBIs by catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia (one on a groundout, another on a double). Ortiz, meanwhile, followed a 2-for-4 day game in which he ripped two doubles with a 3-for-4 nightcap that included the homer and two singles.
The Sox DH is amidst one of his finest runs in memory. During a 12-game hitting streak dating to Aug. 7 (and prior to suffering bursitis that had him down for nine games), Ortiz is hitting .522 (24-for-46) with six homers, 14 RBIs, a .577 OBP, a 1.043 slugging mark and a 1.620 OPS....
Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker injured his neck late in the first half of Saturday's preseason game vs. the Lions making a tackle on an interception thrown by Tom Brady. Welker dipped his head and tackled Ricardo Silva, bringing him to the turf at the Patriots' 46. Adding to the violent nature of the play was Welker slamming his head off the field turf at Ford Field.
Welker walked off the field by himself before getting examined by Patriots trainers and medical staffers.
"We'll see, I'm not sure," Brady said after the game when asked about Welker's availability in the near future. "He's a tough guy. There's nobody tougher than Wes Welker. Mentally, physically, he's as good as there is. He's a big part of our offense, a huge part of the offense."
The team announced early in the third quarter that Welker had been diagnosed with a neck injury and his return to the game was questionable. For more, visit the...
