Manny Ramirez arrested for battery

Retired slugger Manny Ramirez was arrested following a domestic dispute in his Weston, Fla., home and charged with battery, the Associated Press reported. The news was first reported by TMZ (with an accomanying mug shot), which added that Ramirez was taken from his home in handcuffs around 7 pm EST.

The police report said that Ramirez slapped his wife in the face during an argument, and that her head hit a bedroom headboard as a result of the act. Ramirez' wife told police that she feared the situation would escalate, prompting her to call in the incident to authorities. Manny Ramirez denied hitting his wife.

The 39-year-old hit 555 home runs in parts of 19 seasons, including a stretch of nearly eight seasons with the Red Sox during which he helped Boston to two...

Savard will be on Cup, Kampfer uncertain
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli confirmed Monday night that center Marc Savard's name will be on the Stanley Cup despite the fact that he played in only 25 regular season games last season (41, or one Stanley Cup finals game are required). The Cup will be engraved this week, with 52 names (including the players) allowed.

"It's not an easy task, it really isn't," Bruins president Cam Neely said of trying to narrow down the list while also seeking approval for petitioned players who don't meet the required games. "You'd like to get as many on there as possible, but it was important to have Savvy on there, and fortunately enough it worked."

While the Bruins know Savard will be on the Cup, the same can't be said for defenseman Steven Kampfer, who played in 38 games in the regular season. Both Savard and Kampfer had injuries last season (Savard a season-ending concussion and Kampfer a lower-body injury during an AHL stint late...

UPDATED: Report: Koppen breaks left ankle

Already thin on the offensive line, the Patriots suffered a major blow during the season opener in Miami as starting center Dan Koppen had to be carted off after sustaining what appeared to be a serious left leg injury. 

Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby fell on Koppen's left leg as Koppen was engaged on the offensive line. Koppen came out on crutches after getting examined at halftime and the team ruled him out for the rest of the game with a left ankle injury. WBZ-TV reported in its postgame show that Koppen sustained a broken left ankle, a report coach Bill Belichick would not confirm. "We'll see, I don't know," Belichick said. 

"That's tough," added Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who said he didn't know the last time he took a snap from a center other than Koppen.  "He's the best. There's no one like him. I think he and I have a great chemistry between the two of us, we always have. He's one of my great...
