Mashup: Traded WR Marshall slugs woman?

On the same day Brandon Marshall was traded from the Dolphins to the Bears, news broke that the wide receiver allegedly punched a woman in the face during a weekend incident outside a New York City nightclub.

The New York Post reports that Marshall was thrown out of the club early Sunday morning after getting in a fight with an unnamed football player, and both players then argued with a group that was waiting to get inside the club to celebrate a woman's 24th birthday. Marshall then threw a punch that landed in the left eye of Christin Myles. It was not clear if Marshall was intending to hit Myles or was aiming for someone else.

Marshall's lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, said Marshall was at the club with his wife and some close friends, and that he was not involved in the initial fight inside the bar. Steinberg also said Marshall's wife was hit in the face with a bottle and "suffered serious injury." Steinberg did not explain Marshall's...

Stamtoast: Turco, Thomas falter in Tampa
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins came one step closer to surrendering the Northeast Division lead after getting shelled by the Lightning, 6-1, Tuesday night in Tampa. 

With the loss, the Bruins' third in a row, the B's remain at 83 points -- just two points ahead of the Senators, who will face the last-place Canadiens Wednesday night. 

With Tim Thomas having played in the last nine games for the Bruins, backup Marty Turco was given his first start as a member of the team, but three quick Lightning goals from Tom Pyatt, Nate Thompson and Ryan Shannon in a matter of 4:31 led to the B's yanking Turco in favor of Thomas. Turco returned to the game 3:06 into the second period after Steven Stamkos made it 5-0. Thomas also allowed an unassisted goal to Victor Hedman late in the first period. 

The Bruins finally got on the board 1:55 into the third period, when a Johnny Boychuk shot went off Jordan Caron in front and past Lightning goaltender Dustin...

Doubront shines in Sox' win over Yanks

Felix Doubront continued to make a strong bid to earn the fifth spot in the Red Sox rotation, allowing just two hits and no runs while striking out three over four innings in the Sox' 1-0 win over the Yankees Tuesday night in Tampa.

Michael Bowden also continued his strong spring, following up Doubront by striking out the side in the fifth inning (although he did allow his first hit of the exhibition season). The righty was followed by Vincente Padilla, who pitched three scoreless frames, fanning four. Junichi Tazawa finished off the shutout, striking out the side in the ninth while allowing a hit.

The game's lone run came in the ninth when Pedro Ciriaco came all the way around on a single after two fielding errors. It was the second straight game Ciriaco claimed the game-winning RBI in the final inning.

The Red Sox managed just four hits on the night, two of which came against Yankees starter Ivan Nova, who lasted four innings. Besides...

Syracuse star Melo ineligible for NCAAs

Syracuse declared center Feb Melo ineligible for the NCAA tournament Tuesday due to an unexplained eligibility issue.

Coach Jim Boeheim offered little to an Associated Press reporter as he left the bus in front of the team hotel in Pittsburgh, where the East top seed Orange (31-2) play 16th-seeded North Carolina-Asheville Thursday.

"All we can do is be ready to play with the guys we have," Boeheim said, adding, "That's all we can do. There are injuries, things happen during a season. We'll be ready to play and we'll go play."

Melo, who hails from Brazil, was the Big East Defensive Player of the Year. He averaged 7.8 points and 5.8 rebounds while racking up 88 blocks. He missed three games earlier in the season due to academic issues, and the Orange lost one of those games (at Notre Dame).

This is the third major controversy for Syracuse this season. Last week, the school revealed that it had self-reported possible...
