Belichick on Brady: “I’m not going to talk about the people who aren’t here”
Patriots coach Bill Belichick was asked today to talk about Tom Brady, but he wouldn’t.
Brady is absent from the Patriots’ Organized Team Activities, and when Belichick was asked about that, he quickly shut it down.
“It’s always good to get back on the field and be working with everybody in Phase 3,” Belichick said. “We were able to do a little bit in Phase 2 against air, get some teaching and instruction, but this is much better. It’ll progress faster and just do more with our team, starting yesterday and for the next couple weeks. It’s always good to get to that point. We have a lot of new players on our team.”
So OTAs are important, and Brady isn’t there, but what Belichick draws from that we’ll have to figure out for ourselves, because Belichick isn’t talking about Brady.
The AL Central leaders moved back to .500 with an easy victory against the team that beat them two years ago to end a 108-year championship drought.
Ramirez got Cleveland going with his three-run drive in the third. The Indians scored four times in the inning while chasing a wild Tyler Chatwood (3-4) and simply poured it on after that.
He’s one of the better hitters in the game, Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. “You look at him (5-foot-9, 165 pounds) and I don’t know if you necessarily think you see a guy who can drive the ball out of the ballpark like that. And now as he’s accumulating some experience, he knows the pitchers, he knows how they’re attacking him. It makes him even better.”
Trevor Bauer (4-3) went six innings in his second straight scoreless start. The right-hander gave up seven hits and struck out six while walking two after shutting down Detroit over eight innings in a win last week.
