Bay goes 1-for-2, Youkilis singles, Papelbon delivers scoreless frame

Red Sox outfielder Jason Bay and closer Jonathan Papelbon have concluded their participation in the 2009 All-Star Game. Bay started in left field and went 1-for-2 with a first-inning single off of N.L./Giants starter Tim Lincecum. He was replaced by outfielder Adam Jones in the fifth.

Papelbon came on in the seventh, and retired the side in order, though not without drama. Rockies outfielder Brad Hawpe jumped on Papelbon's first pitch, sending it to the fence in left-center, but Carl Crawford leaped to haul rob Hawpe of a homer and record the out. Miguel Tejada likewise attacked a fastball, sending it to the warning track in right-center. Finally, Papelbon fanned Jayson Werth of the Phillies in an eight-pitch at-bat.

Following Papelbon's scoreless seventh, teammate Kevin Youkilis delivered a pinch-hit single in place of the Sox closer in the top of the eighth.

The A.L. has taken a 4-3 lead over the N.L. in the eighth.

Report: Cassel agrees to long-term deal with Chiefs

Former Patriots quarterback Matt Cassel -- who was dealt to Kansas City this past spring with linebacker Mike Vrabel for a second-round draft pick -- has reportedly agreed to a long-term deal with the Chiefs. Cassel, who was franchised by New England before the trade, was scheduled to make upward of $15 million as part of a one-year deal for the 2009 season.

Hunwick and Bruins set July 24 as arbitration date

Defenseman Matt Hunwick and the Bruins have set their arbitration date for July 24 -- less than two weeks away -- but the two sides have had discussions on a multi-year deal that would keep the 24-year-old with Boston for up to three years.

According to sources with knowledge of the negotiations, discussions have recently dried up between the two sides, however, and arbitration appears to be a more likely resolution for the disparity in contract terms over the NHL's leading rookie scorer at the defensemen position last season.

With only $4.3 million remaining under the cap and Phil Kessel still unsigned (but still B's property), it's likely that the Bruins are looking for a little bit of savings with Hunwick and seeking something in the $1-1.3 million range. It's also likely that Hunwick and Co. are looking for something closer to the $1.5-2 million for the 2009-10 season and beyond.

For more information on Hunwick's potential arbitration...
