ST. LOUIS (AP) — Former World Series MVP David Freese will earn almost $3.2 million under a one-year contract with the St. Louis Cardinals. That’s nearly six times the $518,000 he made last year. The St. Louis County native hit .283 with 20 home runs and 79 RBIs last season and earned his first All-Star appearance.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Blues are activating goalie Jaroslav Halak (YAR’-oh-slahv HAL’-ihk) from injured reserve, a signal that struggling Brian Elliott is headed for some time on the bench. Halak is 3-0 with a 2.10 goals-against average and two shutouts this season. He’d been sidelined by a groin strain.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Number 3 Michigan, fifth-ranked Kansas and 11th ranked Louisville all lost on Saturday, continuing a perilous stretch for the Top 25. The Jayhawks have dropped three straight games for the first time in eight years after they lost 72-66 at Oklahoma. Kansas was ranked second in the country a week ago.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — A report commissioned by Joe Paterno’s family says the late coach did nothing wrong in his handling of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. The report portrays the late Hall of Fame coach as the victim of a “rush to injustice” created by former FBI director Louis Freeh’s investigation of the case for Penn State.

The family’s critique argues that the findings of the Freeh report published last July were unsupported by the facts.

Former U.S. Attorney General Dick Thornburgh is one of the experts assembled by the family’s lawyers to review Freeh’s report. He says the document is fundamentally flawed and incomplete.

In a statement released through a spokesman, Freeh says he stands by his conclusion that Paterno and top administrators concealed child sex abuse allegations against Sandusky.

A statement released by the university says it is “understandable and appreciated that people will draw their own conclusions and opinions from the facts uncovered in the Freeh report.”
