Source: Tito to interview with Cards Tuesday

According to a major league source, former Red Sox manager Terry Francona is scheduled to interview for the St. Louis Cardinals' vacant managerial position Tuesday. 

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Monday that Cardinals GM John Mozeliak was planning on interviewing at least one candidate Tuesday, with the hope of having a manager in place by next week. St. Louis had planned to interview six candidates to replace the retired Tony LaRussa, with Cards special assistant Mike Matheny, Triple A manager Chris Maloney, and White Sox third base coach Joe McEwing all interviewing last week.

Other potential candidates who could garner interviews with Mozeliak are Ryne Sandberg and St. Louis third base coach Jose Oquendo.

Report: Phillies have talks with Papelbon

According to a tweet from SI.com's Jon Heyman the Phillies have had talks with both Ryan Madson and Jonathan Papelbon recently and "seem to determined" to sign one of the two closers. Earlier Monday, it was reported by multiple outlets that Philadelphia was making a strong push to re-sign Madson, who saved 32 games for the Phils in 2011, going 6-2 with a 2.55 ERA in 62 games.

One industry source suggested the Phillies would prioritize Madson due to their familiarity with the closer, although interest in Papelbon remains strong on the free agent market.

Papelbon, who saved 31 games for the Red Sox in '11, is just about three months younger than Madson (both born in 1980). The Sox reliever went 4-1 with a 2.94 ERA in 63 games in his sixth season closing game for Boston.

Both relievers are Type A free agents, potentially resulting in two draft picks for their '...

Paille (puck to face) to see specialist
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien offered little update on forward Daniel Paille, who left Monday's 6-2 win over the Islanders in the third period after getting hit in the face with a slapshot from New York defenseman Steve Staios. 

"He's going to be seen by a specialist tonight," Julien said. "Obviously a puck hit him in the face, and in the nose area. We'll probably know more tomorrow, once he's seen by a specialist."

Upon getting hit with the puck, Paille remained down on the ice by the blue line and was tended to by trainer Don DelNegro. He left the ice under his own power, but left a puddle of blood where he landed.

B's climb out of cellar, beat Isles

Nathan Horton and Tyler Seguin scored goals 29 seconds apart in the first period and Tuukka Rask stopped 24-of-26 shots to record his first win of the season as the Bruins pulled away and beat the Islanders, 6-2, Monday night in the opener of a five-game homestand at TD Garden. After starting the season 3-7-0, the defending Stanley Cup champs have scored 18 goals in winning three straight, with Monday night's triumph lifting them over the Islanders and out of the cellar in the Eastern Conference. 

Benoit Pouliot, filling in for the injured Rich Peverley, scored his first goal with the Bruins since coming over this summer from Montreal. He was on the doorstep in front of starting goalie Evgeni Nabokov and put back a loose puck under Nabokov's pads just 92 seconds into the game. 

The Islanders came back four minutes later to get the equalizer on a redirect from Matt Moulson. But Horton scored his third of the season on the power play to put...

Belichick: Spikes having tests on right knee

FOXBORO -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick indicated linebacker Brandon Spikes is having tests done on his right knee Monday, one day after he suffered an injury that knocked him out of the contest against the Giants.

“We’ll see how he responds,” Belichick said Monday. “It’s hard to tell right after the game -- a lot of adrenaline going and all that. (We’ll) take a look at it (Monday) and see what it looks like (Tuesday). Sometimes those things clear up and they’re bruises; sometimes they’re more than that and it takes a little bit longer. Probably a little better idea tomorrow and we’ll see whether he can practice on Wednesday.”

Spikes suffered the injury on a third-down play at the New England goal line in the second half of Sunday’s loss to the Giants when he collided with teammate Kyle Arrington. He limped off the field, and soon after that, left for the locker room. He...
