Judge forces Foxboro to let Kraft rep speak

On the same day a U.S. District Court judge ruled the town of Foxboro must allow representatives of the Kraft Group to speak at a selectman's meeting, town officials on Tuesday withdrew a Town Meeting measure that would have taken land on Route 1 to acquire a pair of billboards owned by the Kraft Group.

Selectmen voted unanimously to withdraw the article, shortly after Kraft Group director of project development Ted Fire spoke at Tuesday night's meeting and criticized Town Manager Kevin Paicos for previously refusing company officials to speak.

"It is truly shameful that Mr. Paicos and at least one member of this board took the steps they did to deny our constitutional right to be heard," Fire said.

Despite speculation to the contrary, Fire said he doesn't believe there is a connection between this controversy and a proposal for a resort casino complex on Kraft-owned land near the stadium.

"This has nothing to do with...

Mashup: Yanks' Joba explains bizarre injury

Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain met the media Tuesday for the first time since suffering an open dislocation of the subtalar join in the heel area in a trampoline accident last week. Chamberlain claimed the injury was not as bad as reported, and he said he plans to return later this season.

"One of those things that bothered me, people calling me asking me if it was life-threatening and that I was going to lose my foot," Chamberlain said. "There was no bone out of my ankle. It bothered me to have my family go through that. I broke no bones. I didn’t dislocate my ankle. Nothing was out of the skin. I didn’t lose a lot of blood, contrary to what people wrote. It wasn’t life-threatening and I wasn’t planning on losing my foot. Basically, when you rolled your ankle the skin just went."

Chamberlain, who has been rehabbing after Tommy John surgery last year, was jumping on trampolines at a facility with his 5-...

Magic's group wins bid to buy Dodgers

The group that includes Lakers legend Magic Johnson agreed Tuesday night to buy the Dodgers for a record $2 billion. Mark Walter, chief executive officer of the financial services firm Guggenheim Partners, willl become the controlling owner.

Frank McCourt, the previous owner, will acquire land surrounding Dodger Stadium, including its parking lots, for $150 million.

"I am thrilled to be part of the historic Dodger franchise and intend to build on the fantastic foundation laid by Frank McCourt as we drive the Dodgers back to the front page of the sports section in our wonderful community of Los Angeles," Johnson said in a statement.

McCourt purchased the team along with Dodger Stadium and land around the park in 2004 for $430 million, but his tenure was marked by controversy. Following a divorce settlement with his wife, Jamie, and a dispute with Major League Baseball, McCourt filed for bankruptcy. The team's sale must be approved...

Insurance plan: B's pad lead with win

On a night the Bruins honored Zdeno Chara for passing the 1,000-game plateau in his NHL career, the captain matched a career-high with three assists as Boston beat the Lightning, 5-2, Tuesday at TD Garden. Benoit Pouliot scored into wide open net with 8:26 left in the third period to break a 2-2 tie and give the Bruins a vital two points, pushing them five points ahead of second-place Ottawa in the Northeast Division.

Steven Stamkos fired a wrist shot past Tim Thomas on the short side for his NHL-leading 54th goal of the season, putting Tampa Bay ahead, 1-0, at the 5:03 mark of the first. 

Shawn Thornton put in a rebound of a Chara shot after Chara took the puck at the Lightning blue line and skated across the offensive zone and rushed the net. Just minutes later Thornton had a golden opportunity for his second goal of the night when he had a clean breakaway but Dwayne Roloson stopped this shot to keep the game tied, 1-1.

UMass bows to Stanford in NIT semis

UMass point guard Chaz Williams scored a game-high 19 points Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden, but the Minutemen fell to Stanford, 74-64, in the semifinals of the NIT.

Anthony Brown scored 18 points for the Cardinal (25-11), who advance to Thursday's title game against either Washington or Minnesota.

Stanford led by three at the half, 36-33, and kept a slim lead for most of the second period. UMass (25-12) only led once in the final 36 minutes, at 50-49 with 8:05 remaining after a long 3-pointer from Freddie Riley. Brown answered for Stanford 30 seconds later with a longer 3-pointer.

It was a three-pint game with four minutes left when Brown hit a short jumper to start a 9-1 run. UMass got no closer than six the rest of the way.
