The Syracuse Post-Standard and ESPN have come under fire for failing to publish stories about the Bernie Fine accusations when they were first contacted by former ball boy Bobby Davis in 2003. In Wednesday's Post-Standard, executive editor Michael J. Connor explains why the paper passed the first time, even after Davis taped a phone call with Laurie Fine in which she makes some statements that appear to corroborate Davis' story.
Connor explains that the tape -- which he implies was made with the encouragement of the paper -- was "sleazy and sickening" but still too vague and ambiguous to use as verification of the accusations. And when the paper confronted Laurie Fine after hearing the tape, she said it had been doctored and then stopped talking to the reporter.

Tim Frazier scored 20 of his 22 points in the second half as Penn State defeated Boston College, 62-54, Wednesday night for BC's first-ever loss in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. BC had won its first five Big Ten/ACC Challenge games and was the last ACC team to lose in the event.
Jermaine Marshall also scored 22 points for the Nittany Lions (6-2). Matt Humphrey scored 15 points to lead the Eagles (2-5), who shot just 36 percent from the field and scored only three points in the game's final five minutes.
BC led by three at the half, 29-26, and by six points with 13:29 remaining after two Humphrey free throws. Penn State took the lead for good on a Frazier 3-pointer with 6:59 left that made the score 51-48. It was 53-51 with 5:07 left after two Game Moton free throws, but BC then went 4:49 without a point. The drought ended when John Cahill hit a trey with 18 seconds left to draw BC within six, but the Eagles would not score again....
The Bruins took over first place in the Northeast Division with a 6-3 win over the Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre Wednesday. The win wrapped up an impressive month of November in which they went 12-0-1.
David Krejci had a three-point night, with Milan Lucic, Zdeno Chara and Nathan Horton contributing two points apiece in the win.
The Leafs got on the board first with a power play goal from Mikhail Grabovski in the first period, but the B's responded with a power play goal of their own thanks to Milan Lucic. Krejci gave Boston its first lead of the night at 3:33 of the second period, but former Bruin Phil Kessel set up a Joffrey Lupul goal to tie it. The B's then got goals from Chara and Pouliot to give them a 4-2 lead before Tim Thomas surrendered a soft goal to Matt Fratin. Lucic provided the B's some insurance with his second goal of the night at 15:21. Brad Marchand sealed it with an empty-netter.
Thomas collected the win for the...
Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, in his weekly appearance on The Big Show, was asked about the news that Bobby Valentine will be the next manager of the Red Sox.
"It's exciting," Pedroia said. "Just excited to have a manager, it took a long time. I think the search is over and now we can all get ready for next year. And I bet all the fans are excited too. He's been around, he's done it before in a big market. So it's going to be fun."
Alex Speier of WEEI.com reported earlier Wednesday that after the Red Sox parted ways with Terry Francona, team officials told at least one player that there had been no plans to hire “someone like Bobby Valentine.” Pedroia was asked if he was ever told that by Sox officials.
"No one ever mentioned like that to me," Pedroia said. "They were going on with the manager search, trying to find the best guy for the job. It's...
