Paille (broken nose) to have surgery
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli issued the following statement Tuesday regarding forward Daniel Paille, who took a slap shot to the face Monday against the Islanders:

"Daniel Paille has been diagnosed with a broken nose and facial lacerations after the injury he sustained in our game Monday night. He will undergo surgery on Wednesday, November 9 at Mass General Hospital in Boston to repair the injury. Dr. Thomas Dodson will conduct the procedure. Following the surgery, he is expected to be listed as day-to-day."

Paille was attempting to block a shot from Islanders defenseman Steve Staios in the third period, but was hit in the face by the puck. He remained down on the ice before leaving under his own power. He did not return to the game.

Report: Lakers near deal for Chris Paul

As trade scenarios flew back and forth on a hectic day before the NBA opened training camps, it appeared that the Lakers and Celtics had emerged as the two remaining teams in the hunt for New Orleans All-Star guard Chris Paul. The Hornets have reportedly decided on the Lakers offer of Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom, according to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Celtics had reportedly offered Rajon Rondo, restricted free agent Jeff Green and two first round draft picks. With Gasol in the deal instead of Andrew Bynum, that could pave the way for the Lakers to also try and trade for Dwight Howard, but that's a future debate. Gasol is reportedly headed to the Rockets who will then send Kevin Martin, Luis Scola and Goran Dragic to New Orleans.

For now the Celtics will have to retool around Rondo, a two-time All-Star who has been dangled in trade talks twice in the last three years.

Pats release Haynesworth, D. Gronkowski

The Patriots announced Tuesday the signing of wide receiver Tiquan Underwood. In addition, the Patriots announced that defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth and tight end Dan Gronkowski have been released. The Patriots also released offensive lineman Thomas Welch from the practice squad.

Underwood, 24, is a veteran of two NFL seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars who signed with the Patriots on Aug. 29 after being released by Jacksonville. He was released by the Patriots on Sept. 3. Underwood, 6-foot-1, 183 pounds, originally entered the NFL as a seventh-round draft choice (253rd overall) by Jacksonville in the 2009 draft out of Rutgers. After beginning his rookie season on the practice squad, he joined the 53-man roster and appeared in three games, mainly on special teams. Last season, he played in 10 games and caught eight passes for 111 yards and returned 24 kicks for 561 yards, including a career-long of 53 yards in the season-opener vs. Denver (Sept....

Sox to interview Lovullo, Lamont

The Red Sox will interview Blue Jays first base coach Torey Lovullo on Friday and Tigers third base coach Gene Lamont on Saturday about their managerial vacancy. Both coaches have ties to the Red Sox.

Lovullo, 46, was the manager for Triple-A Pawtucket in 2010 after eight years managing in the Cleveland Indians system. He was named to the coaching staff of former Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell when he became manager of the Blue Jays for the 2011 season. He has been a finalist for three big league managing jobs: First with the Dodgers after the 2005 season, then with the Pirates after 2007 and then again with the Indians two offseasons ago.

Lamont, who has spent 47 years in professional baseball, has been third base coach in Detroit for the last six seasons. He was the third base coach for the Red Sox in 2001.

Lamont, 64, is the first candidate to interview with the Sox with a full-time managerial job on his resume. He has managed parts...

Source: Sox were at Cuban star's workout

According to a major league source, the Red Sox were among the teams in attendance at the workout of Cuban star (and youtube sensation) Yoenis Cespedes in the Dominican Republic last week. Cespedes, who defected from Cuba in the Dominican Republic last summer.

Once cleared to play in Major League Baseball, Cespedes is expected to inspire a significant bidding war as an international free agent, with the source suggesting that the six-year, $30.25 million contract signed by Cuban pitcher Aroldis Chapman two years ago represented a likely benchmark for Cespedes' deal. Reports suggest that the Cuban is a five-tool player with tremendous all-fields power and the ability to play all three outfield positions.

In Cuba's Serie Nacional, he hit .333 with a .424 OBP, .667 slugging percentage and a league record 33 home runs in 99 games in the 2010-11 season. He also starred in the 2009 World...
