New York Daily News | Anthony McCarron: Alex Rodriguez says he is not interested in becoming a manager of a big league team once his playing career is over. Maybe his future is in broadcasting instead.
LoHud | Chad Jennings: MLB announced changes to the rules on sliding and pace-of-play on Thursday. The neighborhood play at second base is now reviewable and runners must make a bona fide attempt to reach the base. A 30-second timed visit to the pitcher's mound by managers and pitching coaches was also added.
Newsday | Erik Boland: Rodriguez is much more at ease coming into spring training this year. Having a strong return year behind him, one that he calls a Cinderella season, he's in a much better place this time around.
New York Daily News | Bob Raissman: Mike Francesa has defended Yankees COO Lonn Trost's comments about elitist fans not wanting to be subjected to sitting with folks who have no idea how to act in the rich section. Yawn.
LoHud | Chad Jennings: The Yankees being willing to try Rob Refsnyder out at third base has opened up a new opportunity for the prospect who performed well in his big league debut. Jennings heaps praise upon the person Refsnyder is and how hard of a worker he has been. Hopefully this new adventure works out for him.
