FOXBORO — There must be something nostalgic in the air in Foxboro this week.
On Wednesday, Bill Belichick spent nearly 15 minutes of his 27-minute press conference waxing poetic about his eighth-grade football playing days and the influence of the “Single-T”, “Wing-T” and “Wishbone” offenses. On Thursday, Tom Brady, apparently inspired, posted a copy of his resume from 2000 just before his was taken with the 199th pick in the sixth round of the NFL Draft.
As part of the pop phenomenon “Throwback Thursday” or #TBT, Brady held the resume in one hand and took the picture with the other. He then wrote: “Found my old resume! Really thought I was going to need this after...
Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington checked in with Dennis & Callahan on Thursday morning to talk about Rusney Castillo and how the team plans to rebuild for 2015. To hear the interview, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.
Castillo made his major league debut in Wednesday night’s 9-1 loss to the Pirates, going 1-for-4. Cherington said the outfielder isn’t the kind of player who will shine in any one area, but the overall package is one that can be of value to the team.
“Just a good major league outfielder,” Cherington said. “I think what attracted us to him through the scouting process was just that he has kind of a broad base of...

(For the final month of the regular season, “Closing Time” will be called “Why you should have cared,” looking beyond the final score — at a time when losses are arguably more valuable to the Sox than wins (for draft and waiver position) — for either meaningful signs for 2015 or simple aesthetic considerations.)
PITTSBURGH — Instant analysis came fast and furious.
Rusney Castillo had just been thrown out after squibbing what amounted to a swinging bunt toward third base. The at-bat was his first as a major leaguer, and encompassed four pitches, ending with the righty hitter finding himself out in front of a Francisco Liriano changeup.
That was it? How come he didn...
FOXBORO — Jerod Mayo‘s absence from Wednesday practice was not injury related, according to the team.
The veteran linebacker was not spotted during the media portion of practice on Wednesday, and was identified as missing the session — however, the team noted on the injury report that it was not the result of an injury issue. In addition to Mayo’s absence, the only other player who was noted as out from today’s practice was safety Don Jones, who reportedly has a hamstring issue.
The Patriots also listed nine players as limited, including tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee), linebacker Jamie Collins (thigh) and offensive lineman Ryan Wendell.
Here’s a look at the complete report:
