NBA talks continue, but little progress

The NBA and the players union met for another 12 hours in New York on Wednesday night and while the two sides again failed to reach a deal on a new collective bargaining agreement, they will resume talks on Thursday.

Additionally, NBA commissioner David Stern said that the league would not revert back to its hardline offer while negotiations were taking place. He had set a deadline of Wednesday at 5 p.m. for the union to agree to the owners' last proposal.

"We've agreed that we've stopped the clock while we continue to negotiate," Stern said. "We've agreed to convene here tomorrow at noon. I would not read into this optimism or pessimism we just continue to negotiate." 

There appeared to be little progress made on the main issues: the BRI split and the system issues.

"We spent a lot of time covering all of the issues we still have remaining, but we can't say there was...

Rodney rips Haynesworth: He quit

Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison ripped into defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth Wednesday, telling Vic Carucci on Cleveland’s WKNR Radio that Haynesworth “flat out quit” on New England.

“To see Albert Haynesworth get an opportunity to come to a great organization, with a great coach, a fabulous quarterback and all the good parts around him...to see him come out there and flat out quit, for him to pretend like he’s hurt and not go out there and become a professional football player with every chance and opportunity that guys hope and dream for, he gets it. He gets a $100 million contract, and to see him flat out quit was very disappointing.

“And I’ll tell you this, he’s going to look back five, 10, 15 years from now when he’s done playing football. He will look back on his career and he will be sitting in his mansion. But he will feel miserable, because no one is going to ever...

Paterno, Spanier out at Penn State

Penn State football coach Joe Paterno has been fired in the wake of allegations that former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky committed numerous acts of sexual abuse against children. Paterno, the winningest coach in Division 1 history, had said in a press conerence on Wednesday that he planned to step down after the 2011 season, his 46th at Penn State. But the Penn State board of trustees opted to move immediately to oust Paterno and school president Graham Spanier amidst questions about how they handled the matter, and why the allegations were investigated internally but not brought to the attention of the police.

Erickson will serve as interim school president, and defensive coordinator Tom Bradley as interim coach. Sandusky, who stepped down in 1999, has denied the charges.

Sox don't plan to add managerial candidates

Red Sox GM Ben Cherington and members of the Red Sox front office met with Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar on Wednesday, and the team will host Blue Jays first base coach Torey Lovullo on Friday as well as Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont on Saturday. Beyond those three candidates and the two with whom the Sox met last week -- Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin and Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum -- Cherington said that he does not anticipate conducting any additional interviews at this time, though he did reserve the right to change his mind.

"[I] wouldn't rule out adding another person, but there are no plans to right now. Someone could emerge but right now we don't have any plans to," said Cherington. "Our hope as we get into next week and get to the GM meetings is to start to narrow that down some, still with the goal of having someone in place before Thanksgiving."

As for the process, Cherington suggested that he has...

Cherington offers Ortiz/Papelbon update

Red Sox GM Ben Cherington said that he has traded messages with David Ortiz and that he has spoken with the designated hitter's agent on multiple occasions, and that he has also been in touch with the agents for closer Jonathan Papelbon since the expiration of the period of exclusivity to talk to a club's own free agents. Cherington suggested that, because Ortiz has a smaller pool of clubs with whom he can talk (since there is no DH in the National League), the conversations with the slugger have been more specific than the ones with Papelbon.

"With David, [there has been] continued dialogue with his agent. I've actuality traded messages with David but I've spoken with his agent a couple times," said Cherington. "I think with David, I think it's in some ways a little bit more clear in terms of what his market could be. It's a little easier to have the conversations earlier in the offseason and start to get into what we might be able to, so...
