Bruins far behind in All-Star voting
By: DJ Bean

The NHL released the results of All-Star voting by the fans thus far, and the Bruins are far from well-represented. Penguins center Sidney Crosby leads all vote-getters with 118,755 votes, while no Bruins are currently on pace to get in via the fan vote. Patrice Bergeron is 35th among forwards with 15,020 votes, while Zdeno Chara's 41,081 votes are 10th among defensemen.

 

The most popular Bruin on the ballot is Tim Thomas, who is third among goaltenders with 47,646 votes. The odd part is that the two goalies he trails, Carey Price (71,199) and Sergei Bobrovsky (58,101), are both write-ins. Should Thomas not get in through the fan vote, which ends Jan. 3, he can still be selected in the new fantasy draft format.

 

Thomas leads the league in goals against average (1.49), save percentage (.954), and is tied for the league lead with four shutouts. For more on the Bruins, visit their team page at...

Sox offered V-Mart 3/$36M and 4/$42M deals

According to a major league source, the Red Sox made two final offers to catcher Victor Martinez. One was for a three-year, $36 million deal, another for four years and $42 million. However, the catcher and his agents made clear to the Red Sox on Monday night that he was prepared to accept another offer elsewhere, and today, news emerged of his four-year, $50 million deal with the Tigers.

Rangers' Hamilton wins AL MVP

Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton was named American League MVP on Tuesday, picking up 22-of-28 first place votes to capture the award.

 

Despite missing 29 games in September with a bruised rib cage, Hamilton still managed to lead the AL with a .359 batting average and a .633 slugging percentage. He also hit 32 home runs and knocked in 100 runs to help the Rangers reach the postseason for the first time since 1999.

 

Miguel Cabrera, Robinson Cano, Jose Bautista and Paul Konerko rounded out the top five in voting. Adrian Beltre was the lone Red Sox player to finish in the top 10 of balloting, placing ninth.

Pats practice: Tom Brady, 3 others miss

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady was not at the open portion of practice on Tuesday afternoon inside the Dana Farber Field House as the Patriots wrap-up preparations for the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving afternoon at Ford Field. 

 

Also missing were right guard cornerback Jonathan Wilhite (hip), Stephen Neal (shoulder) and Mike Wright (neck). The team practiced in sweats and shells. The Patriots did get one player back at practice as defensive lineman Myron Pryor returned after missing the last two games with a bad back.

Francona discusses Martinez exit on D&H

Red Sox manager Terry Francona, in an appearance on the Dale & Holley Show on Tuesday afternoon, discussed the departure of free agent catcher Victor Martinez. Martinez rejected the Sox' offers of either a three-year, $36 million deal or a four-year, $42 million pact.

 

While he suggested that it was a "no-brainer" to want Martinez back on the Sox in 2011, the manager -- who spoke with GM Theo Epstein about Martinez on Monday night -- respected the organization's hesitancy on a long-term deal.

 

"We’re pretty much on the same page on a lot of things. Being the manager is a little bit different, making the lineup out, is a little bit different than having to be the care-taker for the organization and looking at it four years down the road. I try not to lose sight of that," said Francona. "Wanting to have Victor in the lineup next April is a no-brainer. When you have to make a decision...
