Report: New NFL deal '80-85 percent done'

Discussions regarding a new Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NFL owners and players are estimated to be 80-85 percent of the way done, according to Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com. Freeman's report includes a quote from one source that says that at this point, it would be "very difficult" to screw things up. Several reports indicated that the owners and players are meeting this week in suburban Washington, D.C., in the latest attempt to bring a resolution to the longest work stoppage in NFL history.

Rays, Shields snap Sox winning streak

Rays starter James Shields tossed a complete-game shutout, permitting just five hits and needing just 110 pitches to hold a Red Sox lineup that had been the hottest in baseball scoreless in a 4-0 victory for Tampa Bay. The Sox' nine-game winning streak came to an abrupt halt.

Sox starter Tim Wakefield was nearly Shields' match, working seven innings and allowing just two runs (one earned) on four hits. But with Shields proving little short of dominant in dropping his ERA to 2.60 for the year, Justin Ruggiano's solo homer in the fifth and another manufactured run (on two walks, a groundout and two passed balls) proved enough. The Rays would add a pair of insurance runs in the eighth against relievers Tommy Hottovy and Alfredo Aceves.

Carl Crawford, in his first game back in Tampa Bay since leaving the Rays as a free agent, went 0-for-3 with a bases-loaded, two-out groundout and a strikeout. Crawford was initially booed by his former home fans as he...

Miller dominates day before opt-out

Left-hander Andrew Miller allowed one run on five hits in 5 1/3 innings, striking out a season-high 10 and walking just one batter for Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday. Miller threw 96 pitches in lowering his ERA for the year to 2.47.

The start came one day before a June 15 opt-out in the minor league deal that Miller signed with the Red Sox this offseason. The 26-year-old left-hander will meet with GM Theo Epstein on Wednesday to determine the next step in his season with the Sox. While he likely would have opportunities to enter a major league starting rotation if he exercised the opt-out and became a free agent, Miller and the Sox have been operating in what both sides have called an unusual partnership meant to serve the long-term interests of both sides. And while Miller has the June 15 opt-out, there is also a second opt-out clause in his contract, giving him the right to become a free agent if not in the majors on Aug. 5.

Miller has been...

Bruschi optimistic about NFL labor situation

FOXBORO — Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi expressed optimism on Tuesday afternoon about the NFL labor situation. Speaking at his fourth annual SBLI Youth Football Clinic at Gillette Stadium, Bruschi sounded a positive note when asked if the players and owners could reach an agreement sooner rather than later.

"I'm getting optimistic, and so are some of the guys. Having talked to them and they're hearing the same things — looks like a few weeks maybe," he said.

"But I think the whole thing about it is that when it's resolved — and it looks like it may be ... I hope it is — when it's resolved, what's the formula after that? There just can't be an explosion of free agency, signing undrafted free agents, rookies, having to sign rookies, having to sign free agents. There has to be some type of structure. I think that's what has to be worked out, because you would have football chaos if...
