Brown appeared to have lost control of the car while making a left turn out of her apartment complex, the Alpharetta, Ga., police department told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution . Drugs or alcohol did not appear to be a factor, police said....

BOBBY ABREU , 38, outfield Final 2012 stats (as a Dodger): .246 batting average, three home runs, 19 RBI, six stolen bases, 35 walks, .361 on-base and .344 slugging percentages in 195 at-bats. Contract status: free agent. The good: In truth, he was pretty much what you hoped he would be. More, actually, early on. His numbers don't wow, but he was a what-have-we-got-to-lose pickup after the Angels - with their overstocked outfield - designated him for assignment.

It's never too early to start getting excited about a possible Kentucky Derby contender, so attention will be focused on unbeaten Shanghai Bobby in Saturday's $2-million Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita. Trained by Todd Pletcher, the 2-year-old son of Harlan's Holiday is four for four and coming off a five-length victory in the Grade I Champagne Stakes last month at Belmont Park. "What I've really liked is he's learned to settle off a horse," Pletcher said. It will be Shanghai Bobby's first race around two turns.

A 10-year stint in the Angels organization, including the last two as a big league reserve, came to an abrupt end for Bobby Wilson on Monday when the catcher was claimed off waivers by the Toronto Blue Jays, a move that clears the way for Hank Conger to be the Angels' No. 2 catcher. "I wasn't expecting the phone call, and I don't know what to think of it, but it's time to move forward," said Wilson, a solid defensive player who batted .211 in 75 games last season. As a player entering his first year of arbitration, Wilson, who made $487,500 last season, would have cost the Angels a little more than they will pay Conger, a first-round pick in 2006, next season.

The Boston Red Sox thought Bobby Valentine would restore order to a coddled clubhouse that disintegrated during the 2011 pennant race. Instead, he only caused more problems. The brash manager was fired on Thursday, the day after the finale of a season beset with internal sniping and far too many losses. Valentine went 69-93 in his only year in Boston, the ballclub's worst season in almost 50 years. :: Sandy Alomar Jr. , who guided Cleveland in its final six games after Manny Acta was fired last week, interviewed to become the Indians' full-time manager.

Bobby Valentine was fired by the Boston Red Sox on Thursday after going 69-93 in his only season as the team's manager. Valentine, who led the New York Mets to the National League pennant in 2000, was brought in during the off-season after former manager Terry Francona lost control of the clubhouse as the Red Sox fell out of the playoff race down the stretch last season. But the 62-year-old baseball veteran wasn't able to right the ship. “Our 2012 season was disappointing for many reasons,” General Manager Ben Cherington said.
