Conflicting reports on new deal for Gronk

There are conflicting reports about a new contract for Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. On Thursday night, Pro Football Talk, quoting a source, reported that Gronkowski and the Patriots have reached an agreement on a new deal that would replace the final two years of Gronkowski's rookie contract. However, PFT also quotes Gronkowski's agent Drew Rosenhaus as saying a deal has not been reached. A second-round pick in 2012, Gronkowski is currently slated to earn base salaries of $540,000 in 2012 and $575,000 in 2013, per NFLPA documents. For more Patriots news, check out

King James: MVP's epic night forces Game 7

LeBron James scored 45 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in 45 minutes while Paul Pierce fell ice cold and the Heat pulled off an improbable 98-79 blowout of the Celtics in Game 6 Thursday night at TD Garden. Rajon Rondo finished with 21 points for the Celtics, who now must win Game 7 on the road Saturday night in Miami to win the Eastern Conference finals and advance to the NBA finals. Pierce was just 4-of-18 on the night, including 0-for-6 from long range. 

James showed why he was voted the league MVP by dominating the first half, connecting on 12 of his 14 field goal attempts and putting up 30 points in a spectacular display.

Rondo was nearly step-for-step with him, scoring 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting, getting the basket early and often. But with the game tied, 12-12, the Heat went on a 10-0 run to assume command of the game. The Celtics would get no closer than seven points the rest of the half and trailed 55-42 at the half when Miami...

Buchholz dominant as Sox blank Birds

For Clay Buchholz, the confounding start to the year now has given way to a run of excellence. He continued his recent upward trend with his best outing of the year, a complete-game shutout in the Red Sox' 7-0 victory over the Orioles at Fenway Park.

Buchholz seemed completely in command from start to finish, rarely seeming taxed over the course of his nine innings. Though he threw 125 pitches, he kept the Orioles in check for the entire night, permitting just four hits (three singles and a double) in delivering his third career complete-game shutout. He had a terrific fastball/curveball/changeup combination that left Baltimore unbalanced, and he attacked the strike zone, punching out six and walking one.

Buchholz got all the offensive support he needed in the bottom of the first inning, when Adrian Gonzalez stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and two outs and lined a two-run double down the right field line (in the process improving to 5-...

WR Chad Ochocinco cut by Patriots

The Patriots announced on Thursday that they have released wide receiver Chad Ochocinco. The 34-year-old Ochocinco, who was not present for the team's OTA session Thursday at Gillette Stadium, struggled since he was acquired by the Patriots last July, finishing the 2011 season with 15 catches for 276 yards and a touchdown. He restructured his contract in March, lowering his base salary for 2012 to $1 million.

Lineup: Gonzalez back in sixth spot

After not batting sixth in the lineup since September 2006, Adrian Gonzalez will hit sixth for the second consecutive game on Thursday as the Red Sox (28-28) look to avoid a sweep against the Orioles (32-24) at Fenway Park. 

Gonzalez had a single in three at-bats in the sixth spot Wednesday and is hitting .263 with just four home runs in 224 at-bats this season. He will start in right field as Kevin Youkilis plays first base and Will Middlebrooks starts at third base.

Clay Buchholz (5-2, 6.58) starts for the Sox against Brian Matusz (5-5, 5.41). After allowing at least five earned runs in each of his first six starts of the season, Buchholz has allowed three or fewer earned runs in four of his last five starts. He struggled in his only appearance vs. the Orioles this season, allowing five runs on seven hits in 3.2 innings on May 6.
