Report: Wilfork named in Miami scandal

A report by Yahoo! Sports indicates that Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork accepted $50,000 while he was a player at the University of Miami in order to sign with Axcess Sports, a player agency started by Nevin Shapiro and Michael Huyghue. A seperate page of the report details the benefits to Wilfork while he was at Miami. Shapiro is in jail for his role in a $930 million Ponzi scheme. Huyghue, who is now the commissioner of the UFL denied the claims made by Shapiro.

Shapiro revealed the details of his role as a booster to Miami to Yahoo as part of an 11-month investigation by the website, saying that he "provided thousands of impermissible benefits to at least 72...

Sox turn triple play vs. Rays

The Red Sox turned a 5-4-3 triple play in the fourth inning of Tuesday's nightgame of a doubleheader against the Rays. It was the first triple play turned by the Sox since John Valentin turned an unassisted one on July 8, 1994, against the Mariners.

With runners on first and second and no outs, southpaw Erik Bedard elicited a grounder to third from Sean Rodriguez. Jed Lowrie fielded the ball, took a step to his right for the force on B.J. Upton at third, threw to Dustin Pedroia at second to force out Casey Kotchman, with Pedroia relaying the throw to Adrian Gonzalez at first to complete the play. It was believed to be the first 5-4-3 groundball triple play in Red Sox history.

Reports: NFL supplemental draft delayed
By: DJ Bean

According to multiple reports, the NFL's supplemental draft has been delayed after it was initially scheduled to take place this Wednesday. 

The supplemental draft is a process in which teams bid future draft picks (a team awarded a player on whom they bid a third-round pick would lose their third-round pick in the next draft) on players not entered in the annual NFL draft (often times players facing NCAA discipline or ruled academically inelgible). This year's supplemental draft could feature Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor this year, though it is unknown whether commissioner Roger Goodell will declare Pryor eligible. Pryor left OSU after being suspended five games for accepting improper benefits.

Only three players have been chosen in the supplemental draft over the last three years. Nose tackle Josh Brent (Cowboys) and running back Harvey Unga (Bears) went for seventh-rounders in 2010, and the Redskins gave up a third-round...

Ortiz out with right heel bursitis

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz was a late scratch from the opener of Tuesday's doubleheader, and the reasoning was originally that he was sidelined with an illness. However after the Red Sox 3-1 win over the Rays, Boston manager Terry Francona revealed that Ortiz was actually out with right heel bursitis. 

Francona said that Ortiz had been dealing with the issue during the six-game road trip in Minnesota and Seattle, although the DH did not miss any time during that stretch. The skipper was unsure of how much time his DH would miss, but in the immediate future, Ortiz will also sit out Tuesday's second game due to the injury, meaning he will miss multiple games in a row for the first time in a month.
