Bruins defenseman Mark Stuart, sporting a cast and out four-to-six weeks with a broken hand, spoke on Thursday about how his injury occurred.
Though Stuart left the first period of Tuesday's game, the injury actually dates back to last Thursday's 8-1 win over the Lightning. Stuart blocked a shot from the point, getting hit in the right hand.
X-rays after the game were negative, and he played through pain and swelling for the rest of the night and in Saturday's game. On his third shift of the night on Tuesday, Stuart made a pass and his hand "caved in," as he both broke his hand and dislocated his ring finger at the same time.
Stuart said that by the time he had made the pass, his hand was "hanging on by a thread."
This marks the second time in as many seasons that a hand injury will keep Stuart out for a prolonged period of time. He missed 26 games last...
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Red Sox lost a pair of pitching prospects in Thursday's Rule 5 draft, as the Rays selected left-hander Cesar Cabral and the Yankees chose righty Daniel Turpen.
Cabral, 21, was dominant for Single-A Greenville in 2010, posting an ERA of 0.29 in 31 1/3 innings out of the bullpen. He struggled, however, after being promoted to Salem, where his ERA jumped to 5.81.
Turpen, 24, arrived to the Red Sox organization in the Ramon Ramirez trade and had his problems in Double-A Portland, with an ERA of 4.91 in 18 1/3 innings pitched. The Red Sox passed on making a selection in the Rule 5 draft.

According to a tweet from Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated, the Yankees have now added a seventh year to their contract offer for free-agent pitcher Cliff Lee. It is believed that the club's previous offer was for six years and $140 million.
Considered by most to be the top pitcher on the free-agent market, Lee posted a 12-9 record with an ERA of 3.18 and led the major leagues in both WHIP (1.00) and K/BB ratio (10.3) for the Mariners and Rangers in 2010.

It's not uncommon for a sports writer to pen a column before a game so that it's ready to be published right when the contest ends. It is uncommon, however, for a newspaper to put the story on its website before the game is played. It happened Monday when William C. Rhoden's column noting the demise of the Patriots and the rise of the Jets was made available to the readers of The New York Times website before the Pats rolled to a 45-3 victory.
Rhoden blamed Spygate for the Patriots' demise in a story that was headlined: "The day the Patriots' empire began to crumble." The Times altered the column later in the evening to reflect what happened in the game, but the second half of the column remained an analysis of how Spygate brought down the Pats. The new headline: "Patriots romp stirs questions, and not just for Jets."

According to a report from Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox offered free agent pitcher Cliff Lee a seven-year deal this week. Rosenthal cites a source from another team as saying that Boston gave the pitcher a low-ball offer regarding dollars so Lee's camp could use the seventh year to get the Yankees to up their offer. The Yankees have reportedly offered Lee a six-year deal worth between $138 million and $150 million, with Lee wanting a seventh year.
