According to a report in the Chicago Tribune, a 44-year-old Massachusetts woman was arrested near the Lakeview, Ill., home of Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein after informing police she was "inviting Mr. Epstein to go to church."
Kathleen Kearney was arrested two blocks away from Epstein's home on Monday night. She told police she had been watching the home of Epstein and was planning to offer the church invitation to Epstein. Kearney was then taken to Epstein's home, where he confirmed that she was a person who had been warned to stay away from his home in the past.
A police source told the Tribune that Kearney had contacted Epstein previously and that Massachusetts authorities were asked to investigate, though no charges were filed.
Kearney, a Canton native, was charged...
Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch are the latest NFL players to be arrested in what has been a busy offseason. There have been at least 25 arrests in the past six months.
Bryant was arrested Monday by police in DeSoto, Texas, after a domestic incident Saturday. According to an ESPN report, Bryant got into an argument with his half-brother and pushed his mother. Police paid a visit then but did not decide to make an arrest until Monday.
Bryant was charged with a Class A misdemeanor, which is punishable by a fine of up to $4,000 and a year in jail. Bryant also could be penalized by the NFL for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
Bryant has had a couple of run-ins with law enforcement in the last year, but this is his first arrest. His mother has a checkered past, including an 18-month stint in prison for selling cocaine when Dez was a youngster.
The 23-year-old had 63 receptions for...
While an MRI confirmed that Red Sox DH David Ortiz does not have a tear of his right Achilles, the slugger is currently in a walking boot, and he reported feeling worse when he woke up today than he did upon suffering the injury while rounding second base on Adrian Gonzalez' homer on Monday night. He plans to go to Miami on Wednesday for a second opinion.
Ortiz said that he expected that he would miss at least a week. The Red Sox plan to wait until Wednesday to decide whether or not to place him on the 15-day disabled list.
"I talked with some of the medical staff, they thought the 24-hour wait at least is something that gives you a different opinion sometimes. We’ll wait at least the 24 hours and probably into [Wednesday], maybe until we get a second opinion," said Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine.
Valentine said that he was not concerned about a short bench, particularly given that such circumstances have become very...
According to an industry source, an MRI on Tuesday revealed that Red Sox slugger David Ortiz suffered neither a rupture nor a tear of his right Achilles tendon on Monday night against the White Sox. The slugger appeared to pull up as he switched from a sprint to a jog when Adrian Gonzalez' three-run homer cleared the Green Monster, and he hobbled around the bases from that point, moving at a slow walk as he crossed the plate. But Ortiz said as he left Fenway Park on Monday night that he thought he would be all right, and manager Bobby Valentine's expectation that the DH probably would be lost for a few games -- but not much longer -- appears to be accurate. The source said that Ortiz is likely down for a few days, but it appears a more serious injury has been avoided.
Ortiz has at least one hit and one walk in 10 straight games, a new Red Sox record. He has an 11-game hitting streak, and is hitting .316 with a 1.024 OPS this year.
For more Red Sox...
A major league source denied a report that the Red Sox are "aggressive in the pursuit of Ryan Dempster." To the contrary, the source suggested, the Sox have not been pursuing the right-hander actively.
Dempster is 5-3 with a 1.86 ERA in 14 starts this year for the Cubs, and he currently has a scoreless innings streak of 33 innings. For now, however, the Red Sox -- whose starters have produced a 4.71 ERA, a mark that ranks 26th among the 30 big league teams -- are taking more of a wait-and-see approach to the trade market for starting pitching, at a time when they are trying to determine whether the excellent performances by Franklin Morales and Aaron Cook in short samples as rotation members are sustainable.
The Cubs right-hander represents a pure rental, as he will be eligible for free agency following the season. Under the new rules of the...
