Pedroia has surgery
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox have announced that second baseman Dustin Pedroia had season-ending surgery on Friday, a procedure that consisted of having a pin inserted in his injured left foot. Dr. George Theodore and Dr. Tom Gill at Massachusetts General Hospital performed the operation. 

 

Pedroia fractured the navicular bone in his left foot on a foul ball June 25 against the Giants. He has had two stints on the DL as a result, with his return last month consisting of just two games at Fenway vs. the Angels.

Report: NHL, NHLPA agree on contract issue
By: DJ Bean

 According to a tweet from TSN's Darren Dreger, an agreement has been reached between the NHL and the NHLPA on a revision to the calculation of salary cap hits. As part of the settlement that has been agreed upon, the latest Ilya Kovalchuk contract proposal will be approved and, if previous reports prove consistent, so-called "retirement contracts" being investigated will be grandfathered.

 

Previously, a player's cap hit was calculated simply by dividing the contracts total money by the years of the deal. Teams found a loophole and capitalized on it by paying players big money up front and tacking on additional years for very little money. This meant a player would still get the high salaries they demanded while the team would have a managable cap hit. Marc Savard's seven-year, $28.5 million deal...
