Marchand: 'We'll get something done'
By: DJ Bean

Bruins forward Brad Marchand said at the team's Championship DVD premier Monday that he is confident that a deal will soon be reached to keep the 23-year-old in Boston. A restricted free agent, Marchand was extended a qualifying offer by the B's, meaning the Bruins have the right to match any offer sheet the forward could be signed to by another club. 

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli has noted he will not issue constant updates on the progress of negotiations, but Marchand expressed optimism.

"They know I want to be back here, and they want me back," Marchand said, "so we'll get something done." 

Marchand pointed to the hoopla of the Stanley Cup celebration as a reason as to why he has yet to put ink on paper. He noted that he has not been involved in the negotiations, and that his agent, Wade Arnott, has handled things. 

"It's obviously been a very busy time for everyone with the...

Pedroia propels Sox to win over O's

BALTIMORE -- For the second time in less than 24 hours, Dustin Pedroia apparently had enough. Roughly 20 hours after he delivered a game-winning single in the top of the 16th inning to give the Red Sox a 1-0 win in Tampa Bay, Pedroia stepped to the plate in the top of the eighth of a 7-7 game against the Orioles and lined a two-run double to right field that gave the Sox a 9-7 lead. His knock was the start of an eight-run eighth-inning eruption by the Sox in a 15-10 victory in Baltimore.

Pedroia extended his hitting streak to 16 games, going 2-for-5 while driving in three. He delivered the key blow in a balanced Red Sox attack that featured six players who collected multiple hits, including Jacoby Ellsbury (3-for-4), Kevin Youkilis (2-for-6, 3 RBI), Jarrod Saltalamacchia (2-for-5, HR) and, in his first game since June 17, Carl Crawford (2-for-5).

The offensive explosion allowed the Sox to win on a night when Tim Wakefield was able to last just 4...

Report: NFL players to vote Wednesday

NFL players are ready to vote on a new 10-year collective bargaining agreement on Wednesday if unresolved issues are settled between the players and NFL owners, according to a report by Adam Schefter on his twitter page

Approximately two hours after U.S. Magistrate Arthur Boylan arrived at a Manhattan law firm, Adam Schefter reported that the players would be ready to vote a day before the owners gather for a special meeting in Atlanta to discuss the new CBA. It's presumed that if the players ratify on Wednesday, owners would be ready to do likewise. 

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones - on hand for Monday's session in Manhattan - was quoted Monday, characterizing the labor deal as being down to "circumsizing mosquitoes".

Schefter also reported that the NFL sent a memo to all 32 teams Monday, directing key executives with each team to attend Thursday's meetings in Atlanta. ...

Ortiz on suspension: 'Take it like a man'

BALTIMORE -- David Ortiz heard on Monday morning that his suspension for his altercation with Orioles reliever Kevin Gregg had been reduced from four games to three as a result of his appeal. The Red Sox DH, who will take batting practice and work out with the Sox before games before he has to vacate the Sox' dugout and clubhouse for the three contests in Baltimore, suggested that he was at peace with his punishment.

"I'll take it like a man," Ortiz said. "I know doing what I did wasn’t the right thing to do. I’m gonna be punished because of that, like anyone else. I just want to get it over with and continue the season."

Ortiz is hitting .294 with a .381 OBP, .557 slugging mark and .938 OPS to go along with 19 homers and 58 RBI. That said, his numbers have been trending down since the end of June, at a time when his playing time has been halting, the result of interleague play (when he started just two games of a...

Ortiz suspension reduced to three games

BALTIMORE -- David Ortiz has had his suspension reduced from four to three games and will miss the entire three-game series with the Orioles, which begins Monday night at Camden Yards. 

Both Ortiz and Orioles reliever Kevin Gregg will sit out the series. The two were given four-game suspensions on July 14 following their fight on July 8 at Fenway Park. Both appealed the ruling and Gregg also had his suspension reduced from four to three games.
