Report: Sox interested in Johnson, Sanchez

According to a report on, the Red Sox have expressed interest in Marlins starting pitchers Josh Johnson and Anibal Sanchez.

Both Johnson and Sanchez own 5-7 records this season, with Sanchez's ERA at 3.94 and Johnson's at 4.35. Johnson led the National League with a 2.30 ERA in 2010 but missed almost all of the 2011 season with a right shoulder injury (Johnson also had Tommy John surgery in 2007). Johnson, 0-2 with a 7.56 ERA in his last three starts, will make $13.75 million this season and in 2013.

Sanchez, a former Sox prospect who was part of the deal that landed Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell in 2005, has struggled as of late, posting a 5.63 ERA since June 1. He is making $8 million this season and will be a free agent at the end of the 2012 campaign.

Paterno family: 'Panicked response' by NCAA

The family of the late Joe Paterno responded Monday with disappointment to the NCAA's announcement of penalties for Penn State due to its mishandling of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case and the school's acceptance of the punishment.

Paterno was named in the Freeh report as having helped cover up Sandusky's crimes, but the family remains adamant that the legendary coach has not received "due process."

Regarding the penalties, which include a $60 million fine, a postseason ban of four years and the loss of 40 scholarships -- plus all victories from 1998-2011 will be vacated, meaning Paterno no longer is the winningest coach in Division 1 history -- the family said: "Punishing past, present and future students of the university because of Sandusky’s crimes does not serve justice. This is not a fair or thoughtful action; it is a panicked response to the public's understandable revulsion at what Sandusky did."

Report: Celtics to open against Heat, Allen

The 2012-13 NBA season will open with an Eastern Conference finals rematch between the Celtics and Heat at Miami's AmericanAirlines Arena on October 30, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Not only will the C's be present for the ring ceremony for LeBron James & Co., but there will surely be more than a few mentions of Ray Allen's decision to turn down a reported two-year, $12 million offer from the Celtics to play in Miami on a two-year, $6 million contract with a player option in Year 2.

The complete NBA schedule is slated to be released later this week.

PSU's O'Brien: 'Committed for the long term'

Acting Penn State athletic director David Joyner and first-year football coach (and former Patriots assistant) Bill O'Brien released statements following the Monday morning announcement of NCAA punishment in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Both promised to commit themselves to improve the situation at the school, which was hit with unprecedented penalties.

Stated Joyner:

The Freeh Report concluded that individuals at Penn State University entrusted to positions of authority, shunned their basic responsibility to protect children, and innocent children suffered as a result. Our hearts go out to the victims of this abuse and their families.

Today Penn State takes another step forward in changing the culture at the institution as we accept the penalties of the NCAA for the failure of leadership that occurred on our...

Penn State fined $60M, banned from bowls

NCAA president Mark Emmert announced Monday morning that Penn State will be fined $60 million, banned from postseason play for four years and lose 40 scholarships but will not be forced to suspend its football program for its failures in the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case.

The team also will vacate all victories between 1998 (when the first reported abuse by Sandusky occurred) and 2011, and serve a five-year probationary period.

"The Penn State case has provoked in all of us deeply powerful emotions and shaken our most fundamental confidence in many ways," Emmert said. "As we -- the executive committee, the Division 1 board and I -- have examined and discussed this case, we kept foremost in our thoughts the tragic damage that has been done to the victims and their families. No matter what we do here today, there is no action we can take that will remove their pain and anguish. But what we can do is impose sanctions that both...
