FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots have shown only glints of vulnerability under Bill Belichick. That’s why it was so unexpected this season to see New England putter to a 2-2 start and drop to the bottom of the NFL’s defensive rankings after allowing 30 or more points in three of those games...
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Mike Tomlin is ready to talk about the New England Patriots. The fact the Pittsburgh Steelers coach can include cornerback Joe Haden in the discussion is a bonus. Haden will attempt to practice for the AFC North champions this week, barely a month removed from a fractured...
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Baltimore Orioles star Manny Machado could be on the move. To a new position — or a new team. Big names emerged in trade talk Tuesday, with Machado, New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey and Detroit pitcher Michael Fulmer heating up the winter meetings. And no...

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — No matter how much their fans imagined Giancarlo Stanton bashing balls over the Green Monster, the Boston Red Sox never came close to getting the NL MVP. But does anyone really expect the Red Sox or the Cubs and other top contenders to stand still after seeing the...
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Based on Jimmy Garoppolo’s first two starts, it appears the 49ers might have their next franchise quarterback. But a new contract for the pending free agent is still at least three weeks away from being discussed, coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday. Shanahan said he...
MIAMI (AP) — Derek Jeter says when his ownership group took over the Miami Marlins in October, he thought Giancarlo Stanton would be with the team in 2018. Stanton says Marlins officials threatened to keep him for the rest of his career. In the end, Miami dealt the National League MVP to the...
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — A person with direct knowledge of the deal says the Texas Rangers and right-hander Chris Martin have agreed on a $4 million, two-year contract after the reliever spent the past two seasons in Japan. The Rangers will be Martin’s third major league team after previous...

DETROIT (AP) — The Boston Celtics prevented Andre Drummond from scoring in the paint and quieted Reggie Jackson on the perimeter. That helped Boston get revenge from a rare loss in a 91-81 win over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday. When Detroit beat the Celtics last month, Drummond scored 26...
