Report: Thibodeau-Hornets talks progress

Reports last week indicated that the Hornets were ready to offer their head coaching job to Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau, and a story by Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo!Sports late Sunday night says the team has begun contract discussions with Thibodeau's representatives at Creative Artists Agency. However, a story out of Illinois' Daily Herald Monday morning notes that the Bulls have interest in him as well, and multiple reports say that Thibodeau plans to remain in discussions for the Nets job.

Red Sox, Lester dominate Royals

The Red Sox completed their series with the Royals with an 8-1 victory over KC, Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park, splitting the four-game set.

The performance lowered the left-hander's ERA to below 3.00 (2.97) for the first time this season. The Sox' offense was propelled by David Ortiz and Jason Varitek, who each had home runs, along with the three-hit showing of Marco Scutaro. Mike Cameron (2 doubles, 3 runs) and Bill Hall (2-for-4, 2 runs) also pitched in. For a recap see Closing Time at The Full Count Blog by clicking here.
