Mashup: A-Rod's drug-buying pal resurfaces

Two years ago, during his public confession about his use of performance-enhancing drugs, Yankees star Alex Rodriguez explained that his cousin, Yuri Sucart, purchased steroids for him in the Dominican Republic. Now, Sucart — who was banned by the Yankees from any team-related function or facility — has resurfaced at A-Rod's side, allegedly accompanying the player on road trips this year and last, according to the New York Daily News.

"We have been in contact with the Yankees about this matter," Rob Manfred, baseball's executive VP of labor relations, said Wednesday. "We are looking into it."

Bergeron on Burrows bite: 'Come on'
By: DJ Bean

VANCOUVER -- Wearing an adhesive bandage on his left index finger, Bruins center Patrice Bergeron confirmed following the team's Game 1 loss to the Canucks in the Stanley Cup finals that Vancouver winger Alexandre Burrows bit him at the end of the first period. 

"Oh yeah, he did," said Bergeron. "He cut me a little bit on my finger, but I'm not going to complain about it. I'll let the league do their job, but he sure did [bite me]."

Bergeron and Burrows were each given roughing penalties for their tussle at the end of the period, though Bergeron's was a minor and Burrows' was a double-minor. Bergeron wanted further action to be taken against Burrows, though the refs did not see the play. Bergeron was uncharacteristically irate following the play.

"They didn't see it, but we were speaking French and I [asked Burrows] why did he do that," Bergeron said. "That lineseman speaks French, and he said that [...

Sources: No decision yet on Daisuke

According to multiple industry sources, a final decision has not yet been by the Red Sox and pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka regarding the next course of treatment for the injury to his ulnar collateral (Tommy John) ligament and common flexor mass of his right elbow. Matsuzaka is scheduled to meet with Sox team officials on Thursday to discuss treatment options.

While there have been reports that Matsuzaka has already decided to undergo Tommy John surgery -- first from Nikkan Sports, and then from Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports (who declared via twitter that Matsuzaka was "leaning towards" surgery) -- that would prevent Matsuzaka from pitching until at least 2012, one source suggested that no decision has been made at this point about how the injury will be treated. Another source indicated that the decision will be made by Matsuzaka and his family after his meeting with the team.

Matsuzaka, 30, is 3-3 with a 5.30 ERA in eight games (seven...

First blood: Torres stuns B's late in Game 1

Raffi Torres scored with 18.5 seconds left in the third period to break a scoreless tie as the Canucks beat the Bruins, 1-0, in a thrilling and stunning Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. The game was an epic battle between Boston goalie Tim Thomas and his counterpart, Roberto Luongo.

Thomas stopped 33 shots before the game-winner, including several spectacular saves throughout a frantic third period. Alex Burrows had a point-blank chance in the opening minute of the period. Thomas was big again on Jannik Hansen five minutes later. But Thomas could not stop Torres on a give-and-go from Hansen, who froze Thomas out of position. That allowed Torres to put the puck in an empty net. Luongo stopped all 36 shots for the winners. 

The game was marred by an ugly incident at the end of the first period when Burrows and Patrice Bergeron exchanged words. Burrows and Bergeron were called for roughing, with Burrows picking up an...

Bergeron: '[Burrows] bit me. That's not OK'

Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals Wednesday night featured lots of hits, penalties and biting between the Bruins and Canucks at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

The game was marred by an ugly incident at the end of the first period when Alex Burrows and Patrice Bergeron exchanged words. Burrows and Bergeron were called for roughing, with Burrows picking up an extra two minutes for the exchange. But as Bergeron left the ice, he held out his finger and claimed he had been bitten by Burrows. 

"He bit me, that's not OK," Bergeron said during the game, as reported by the team's official twitter page. 

Both stayed in the game and returned to action after Burrows served his extra two-minute penalty at the start of the second period.  Both teams were scoreless through two periods, with both teams unable to convert six power play chances.
