Mankins fined $7,500 for late hit vs. Chiefs

According to multiple reports, all citing a league spokesperson, the NFL fined Patriots guard Logan Mankins $7,500 for a late hit against the Chiefs in Monday night's victory over Kansas City. Mankins was flagged for unnecessary roughness in the fourth quarter of the contest when he shoved defensive end Amon Gordon to the ground after the play; the Patriots were also penalized for an illegal shift on the play, resulting in a Tom Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez touchdown catch being taken off the board. Mankins now has incurred eight penalties this year, most on the Patriots.

Reports: A's hire PawSox hitting coach Davis

According to Maureen Mullen (via Twitter) and subsequently confirmed by multiple outlets, the A's have hired Chili Davis -- the hitting coach of the Red Sox' Triple-A Pawtucket affiliate in 2011 -- to be their major league hitting coach for next season. The report was subsequently confirmed by multiple outlets.

Davis spent 19 years in the majors, retiring after the 1999 season.

Davis will replace Gerald Perry, who was also hired by the A's from the PawSox for the 2010 season.
