A source confirmed to WEEI.com that the Red Sox will meet with Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum for a second-round interview about the team's managerial vacancy. News of Sveum's second-round interview was first reported by FoxSports.com and then confirmed by other outlets.
The initial report suggested that Sveum will meet with Sox GM Ben Cherington as well as members of the Sox' ownership group in Milwaukee this week, where both the GMs' and owners' meetings will take place. The Sox are also expected to meet with at least one additional candidate for a second-round interview.

Andre Carter also had a franchise-record 4.5 sacks on the night for the 6-3 Patriots, who swept the season series with the Jets for the first time since 2007, and lead the Jets and Bills by a game in the division.
Playing without Patrick Chung and Brandon Spikes, the Patriots defense showed remarkable resiliency in the first half and took advantage of a big break on New York's first drive to capture early momentum.

Bruins forward Milan Lucic has a hearing scheduled with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan for Monday at 1 pm, according to a tweet from TSN's Bob McKenzie. The hearing will determine whether Lucic is suspended for Saturday's first-period play in which he hit Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller.

According to multiple reports, Mike Matheny will be named the new manager for the St. Louis Cardinals in a press conference Monday. It was a position former Red Sox manager Terry Francona had been a finalist for, having interviewed with the Cardinals Tuesday.
The 41-year-old Matheny, who had been a minor league instructor for the Cardinals, has no managerial experience. He takes over for Tony LaRussa, who retired after St. Louis' world championship 2011 season. Matheny caught from 2000-04 for the Cardinals, winning three Gold Gloves. He becomes the second major league manager hired this offseason without any previous managing experience, joining the White Sox' Robin Ventura.
The Cardinals were the only team Francona interviewed with since parting ways with the Red Sox following the '11 season. Other men to interview for Cardinals' job were Ryne Sandberg, Chris Maloney, Joe McEwing, and Jose Oquendo.
