WHAT’S HAPPENING TODAY:
MLB: Red Sox at White Sox, 8:10 p.m. (NESN, WEEI)
AROUND THE WEB:
♦ Wide receiver Braylon Edwards, who did not start due to his DUI arrest earlier in the week, entered in the second quarter and played a key role in the Jets’ victory over the Dolphins on Sunday night. In the New York Post, Steve Serby has a contrite Edwards talking about his situation. In the New York Daily News, Gary Myers criticizes the team for playing Edwards and notes that it makes the Jets’ lack of discipline look even worse after Edwards had a strong game.
♦ The Baltimore Sun has a story on Orioles reliever Troy Patton, who was reunited with his long lost half-sister during a game at Fenway Park last week.
♦ With Derek Jeter struggling this season in the final year of his contract, Dan Le Batard in The Miami Herald looks at the Yankees’ dilemma. He also compares Jeter to Marco Scutaro.
♦ The Texas Rangers clinched the AL West on Saturday, and Gil LeBreton in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram writes about the team’s long road to the division title (after an 11-year wait).
