Bruins re-up blueliner Stuart for one year

WILMINGTON -- Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced on Friday that the team had re-signed defenseman Mark Stuart to a one-year deal. 

 

Stuart, 26, is a veteran of 252 NHL regular season games and has 12 goals, 23 assists for 35 points and 261 penalty minutes in those contests. He also has 22 Stanley Cup Playoff games, with two career assists in those 22 games.

 

Last season, Stuart played in 56 games for the Bruins, with two goals and five assists. He was sidelined for 26 regular season games and eight postseason contests with a broken left pinky finger and a subsequent infection within that finger.

 

During his 2008-2009 campaign, Stuart set career highs in goals, assists and points as well as tying his career high in games played, registering 5-12=17 totals in 82...

Post's Sherman on D&H: Lee deal 'on brink'

New York Post baseball writer Joel Sherman joined the Dale & Holley show Friday morning to talk about the potential Cliff Lee trade. Sherman's story early Friday morning indicated that the Yankees are close to acquiring the standout left-hander from the Mariners.

 

"All sources continue to tell me what people were telling me last night: It's on the brink of occurring," Sherman said.

 

Lee is scheduled to start against the Yankees Friday night at Seattle's Safeco Field. Sherman said there appears to be a gentleman's agreement that if the deal goes down prior to the game, New York will not pitch Lee against the M's in this weekend series.

 

The key prospect in the trade would be Triple-A catcher Jesus Montero. Sherman noted that catcher is the Yankees' deepest position in the organization, making Montero expendable.

 

Assuming the deal goes through, Sherman said he expects...

Coroner: NBA alum Turpin's death a suicide

Authorities in Lexington, Ky., confirmed the death of former University of Kentucky star and NBA player Mel Turpin, and the county coroner said the 49-year-old had committed suicide.

 

Turpin's body was discovered by police Thursday afternoon at his home after a personal injury call. Turpin's sister, Margaret Burrus, told reporters outside her home that her brother was diabetic and trying to keep it under control. "I didn't know he was depressed or anything,'' she said. "I would have never said that he would have done this."

 

Turpin, a 6-foot-11 center, led Kentucky to the SEC title in 1984, averaging 15.2 points per game, and was the sixth overall pick in the draft that year by the Washington Bullets, who immediately traded him to Cleveland. He spent three seasons with the Cavaliers before ending his career with a season in Utah and one in Washington. He averaged 8.5 points and 4.6 rebounds in 361...

Reports: Lee to Yanks falling apart

According to multiple reports, the framework of a deal that would have sent Cliff Lee from the Mariners to the Yankees is falling apart. Joel Sherman of the New York Post, who first reported early this morning that a deal was close, is now reporting (via twitter) that "the Mariners have turned in a different direction" and that "the Yankees aren't getting Cliff Lee." Further reports from Sherman and others suggest that the Rangers are now making a hard push for the left-hander, who is 8-3 and leads the American League with a 2.34 ERA.
