Technical difficulty or question dodging by Welker?


Technical difficulty or question dodging by Welker?

On "Patriots Postgame Live," the crew a good laugh when Wes Welker doesn't directly address the questions at hand.

The question, asked by Michael Felger, then rephrased by Ty Law and Troy Brown: Why does Welker have such good games against, and in, Miami?

It couldn't be because Welker, the former Dolphin, wants to stick it to his old team for letting him go to a division rival and not paying him what he thought he was worth?

Sounds like Welker had trouble hearing that part of the question.

Red Sox exec Amiel Sawdaye follows Hazen to Arizona


Red Sox exec Amiel Sawdaye follows Hazen to Arizona

The Red Sox lost another key member of their front office Monday, when vice-president of amateur and international scouting Amiel Sawdaye followed former general manager Mike Hazen to Arizona.

Sawdaye will be the Diamondbacks' assistant GM. As stated by Rotoworld, he had been instrumental in building up the Red Sox' young big league talent and farm system.

The Boston Globe reported today that the Red Sox may not fill the GM vacancy created when Hazen left, instead using "other staffers to take on Hazen’s administrative duties". President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski handles many of the duties traditionally associated with the general manager's position, leaving the actual GM's job in Boston as "essentially an assistant [position] with a lofty title but little power".

The Red Sox have also lost two other front-office members this offseason: Senior baseball analyst Tom Tippett, who had been with the organization for eight years, and director of sports medicine services Dan Dyrek, who had been with the Sox for five years.
