Report: 'Angry' Seymour yet to report to Raiders

Richard Seymour was reportedly upset at the Sunday trade that sent him to the Oakland Raiders for a 2011 first-round draft pick. Several outlets are reporting that the veteran defensive lineman was 'angry' and may not report to Raiders camp. The 'Contra Costa Times' is reporting on their blog that there was no sign of Seymour at today's practice. "A few players quietly inquired as to whether there was any news about Seymour reporting," reporter Jerry McDonald blogged. McDonald also quoted an anonymous player as saying, “He’s got to get here. We need him. I don’t care if he’s mad. Maybe that will make him play even better.”

Wakefield to be skipped in rotation

Red Sox manager Terry Francona told reporters in Chicago that knuckleballer Tim Wakefield will be skipped in the next turn through the rotation. The Sox have scheduled off days on both Sept. 10 and Sept. 14, meaning that the team can skip Wakefield while still giving each of its starters at least four days of rest between outings for the next couple of turns through the rotation. Francona told reporters that the current plan would have the pitcher make his next start in Baltimore, during a series that runs from Sept. 18-20, but that plan remains subject to change based on the pitcher's health.
