Report: Crawford-for-Hanley talks not active

USA Today reported on Wednesday afternoon that the Red Sox and Marlins are discussing a deal that would send Sox left fielder Carl Crawford to the Marlins in exchange for infielder Hanley Ramirez and reliever Heath Bell. The report suggested that Marlins top talent evaluator Dan Jennings is in Boston scouting Crawford, but quoted Sox GM Ben Cherington as saying that the Sox "have not offered Carl to a single team. ... We have not pursued anything on Carl Crawford."

Shortly after the USA Today report was published, Buster Olney of ESPN (via twitter) suggested that the potential blockbuster was not being discussed actively: "Sources:There is no current discussion involving Crawford and Hanley Ramirez/Heath Bell. Was...

Report: Pats, Hightower agree on contract

The Patriots have agreed to terms with rookie linebacker Dont'a Hightower, according to Pro Football Talk, making him the final member of New England's draft class to sign.

The first-round pick out of Alabama -- selected 25th overall -- worked as an inside linebacker as a collegian, but showed some positional versatility in the Crimson Tide's 3-4 base defense, including working occasionally as an edge player. At 6-foot-2 and 265 pounds, he was a consensus All-American — one of the captains of the Alabama defense, he finished with a career-high 85 tackles (40 solo), with four sacks and 11 tackles for loss.

Celtics officially sign Jason Terry

LAS VEGAS -- After weeks of trying to arrange a sign-and-trade agreement to acquire Jason Terry, the Celtics moved to officially sign the veteran guard using the full mid-level exception. Terry's deal is for three years starting at $5 million per season.

The former Sixth Man of the Year averaged 15 points for the Mavericks last season and was a key component of their 2011 team that won the NBA championship. With Terry on board, the Celtics are still looking to acquire another guard to fill out their backcourt.

Olney on M&M: Sox will 'extend' to deal

ESPN baseball reporter Buster Olney joined Mut & Merloni on Wednesday afternoon for his weekly appearance, saying the Red Sox might consider trading Jon Lester for better pitching at the deadline.

Olney said the Red Sox may either give up a starting pitcher for a better one or just add another arm to the rotation.

"I do think starting pitching is going to be their focus because we can't assume the guys [they] have are necessarily going to go at that level," Olney said. "And I do wonder, after watching Lester pitch last night, as they go through this process -- this is just me speculating, I don't have anyone telling me they're out there shopping Lester, but I have to believe they're at least out there having the conversations of, 'Look, as we talk to other teams about deals, do we both buy and sell?' In other words, if [the Red Sox] have someone who's ready to give us really good value for Lester, like the...

Cop faces discipline for Crawford epithet

Leominster Mayor Dean Mazzarella announced Wednesday that following an internal investigation, it was determined that a Leominster police officer directed a racial epithet at Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford when the player was in Manchester, N.H., for a minor league rehab assignment.

John A. Perrault was identified as the man who called Crawford a "monday," which can be used as a substitute for a more traditional racially offensive word. Perreault, who had no prior disciplinary problems but now has been charged with making other inappropriate comments, will face a public disciplinary hearing next Wednesday on charges of conduct unbecoming an officer. The 38-year-old, a five-year veteran of the Leominster Police Department, is on paid administrative leave.

Perreault, who is white, was off duty when he traveled to Manchester on July 5 to watch Crawford's Portland Sea Dogs play the New Hampshire Fisher Cats in a Double-A game. He is said to...
