Yankees fans coming to Tampa this spring will find several aesthetic and culinary changes at George Steinbrenner Field. One of the most subtle additions is this No. 4, recognizing the legendary Lou Gehrig. The team is slowly adding these monuments here to recognize past captains. Derek Jeter and Thurman Munson's numbers were already standing in the ballpark.

Trade grades: Grabner to the Devils

The Devils and Rangers franchises hadn't made a trade with each other since 1979. But they did so on Thursday, with speedy winger Michael Grabner headed to the Devils in exchange for future assets. Who came out ahead?

For those keeping an eye on lottery odds: the Knicks' win tonight moved them 3 games ‘behind' Chicago in the race for the NBA's 8th-worst record. They are percentage points ‘ahead' of the Lakers in the race for the 9th worst record. Competition for 9th worst record between NYK, CHA & LAL is tight. A team can fall no further than three spots back in the lottery.

The day before the Yankees' spring-training opener was about communication. During the morning workout, players went through defensive communication drills on pop ups and fly balls. In the afternoon, they participated in improv and communication games led by actor and comedian Steve Shenbaum. (photo courtesy the Yankees)

Knicks snap an 8-game losing streak with a win in Orlando. Trey Burke led New York with 26 points on 12-for-22 shooting and tied Tim Hardaway for a team-high with six assists. Frank Ntilikina played 29 minutes and Emmanuel Mudiay started and played 22 as the Knicks began to look at their younger players. Veteran Jarrett Jack didn't play against the Magic.

Trey Burke has been the best among the Knicks' three young guards tonight. He gave NYK a lift in the first half with 14 points off the bench. Starter Emmanuel Mudiay distributed the ball well but the Knicks struggled defensively during his time on the floor, getting outscored by 12 points.

The Knicks' lineup change - starting Emmanuel Mudiay - hasn't helped its perimeter defense. Orlando has hit nine of its first ten threes in the first quarter and has a four-point lead.
