But I wanted to go to a place that wanted me and that had a great chance to win, and I think Boston fits those two things perfectly." – Rick Nash on his trade to the Boston Bruins, whom he said were atop the trade list he handed the NY Rangers.

Following the Yankees' 8-3 win over the Phillies that pushed them to 3-0 in the Grapefruit League, Aaron Boone touched on Justus Sheffield's up/down outing. He wants Sheffield to take away positives.

Young Yankees lefty Justus Sheffield was impressive in his first inning of work, striking out two en route to retiring the side 1-2-3. He featured a few 96 mph fastballs and a sharp 88 mph slider for his strikeout pitch. His second inning went a little differently. A leadoff walk, a hit batter and a two-run Maikel Franco homer put an end to Sheffield's day. After an early 4-0 lead, the deficit in the fourth was cut to 4-3.
