RB Donnel Pumphrey catches a pass as New York Jets running backs coach Stump Mitchell looks on at San Diego State's pro day Thursday. Pumphrey stood on his combine numbers. He did a nice job catching punts and going through bag drills. The FBS all-time leading rusher with 6,405 yards, Pumphrey understands he'll have to make it as pass-catching back and returner at the next level.

Since the Yankees have three off days in the first 2 weeks of the year, they could wait until April 17th, the 13th game of the season, before using a fifth starter. Jordan Montgomery, a rookie lefty, continues to come around the outside to possibly be that man.

The Jets announced the signing of former 49ers WR Quinton Patton. He will be reunited with his former 49ers position coach, John Morton, now the Jets' offensive coordinator. Patton set career highs last season in catches (37) and yards (408). The deal had been in the works since Patton visited last Saturday.

Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera just got tossed from the game - in spring training. He'd had words with home plate Angel Hernandez after a pitch, then lined a single on the next pitch. But his first couple steps out of the box were spent looking back at Hernandez, who ejected Cabrera when he got to first. Here's Cabrera leaving the game - by walking across the entire diamond and out the RF corner. Just plain weird.

Jordan Montgomery sure made this Yankees rotation battle interesting today, with eight K's in 4 1/3 innings. He's yet another endgame sleeper for AL-only owners.

How cold is it at Citi Field today? It's so cold the Mets are pumping heated air under the tarp to keep the infield warm. There's an exhibition game here next Friday, just 8 days from now.

The Mets' starting lineup today vs. the Nationals is predominately made up of regulars, meaning no Tim Tebow again. Tebow, who will start his professional career at Single-A Columbia, hasn't played with the Mets since going 0-for-3 on Monday against Detroit.
