Patriots Beat: Patriots cheering on Red Sox

The Pats are getting ready for Miami and watching the World Series.

WHO: Miami Dolphins (3-3) at New England Patriots (5-2)

WHEN: 1 p.m.


His prediction: “Sox in six.’’

Surprisingly, tight end Matthew Mulligan did not grow up a Red Sox fan in West Enfield.

“No, I wasn’t a baseball guy at all,’’ said Mulligan, the former University of Maine player. “I mean, the Red Sox were always on so you watched them on TV. But I really didn’t have a favorite team or anything. I didn’t really play baseball, just a couple of years.’’

Third base and pitcher, he said. “I threw it 88 (mph). I could throw the gas a little bit.’’

But he’ll be paying attention. “I’m not into making predictions,’’ he said, “but I hope the Red Sox win.’’

Asked if he could give them any advice, he laughed.

“For me there’s nothing I can tell them that they already don’t know,’’ he said. “Just continue to do what they’ve done. Whatever it’s taken to get them to this point, continue to do that. It’s the best opportunity they’ll have to succeed and we wish them the best.’’

Rob Gronkowski, back to answering football questions instead of injury questions, said he and his teammates will find the time to watch the World Series, even as they prepare for a tough Dolphins team.

“Oh yeah, we definitely watch the games,’’ he said. “Best of luck to them. Hopefully we see them do what they’ve got to do. It should be a great series. I love watching them play.’’

Just like any other fan.
