## Derek Jeter had his first at bat this spring. Unfortunately, he wasn't up there long enough to to determine how his ankle was holding up. He singled on the first pitch.

## Mariano Rivera announced his retirement after this season. He had his first outing yesterday, too. I think it's a good thing he's retiring because he looks like he's lost something. He only struck out two of the the three batters he faced.

## I've said before that I don't care for or about the World Baseball Classic, so I don't follow the games, but I do like a good fight. This one between Canada and Mexico was a beauty.  (Copy and paste into your browser)

## The Syracuse Orange hit a new low yesterday, being beaten up by over 20 points by Georgetown. The shooting slump for the Orange is getting worse. They shot 15 for 47 from the field, a whopping 32%. Michael Carter-Williams is second in the nation in assists, averaging just under 8 per game. Syracuse only had four assists as a team yesterday. No wonder John Thompson had a big hug for Jim Boeheim after the game. The way they're playing, it might be a good thing if the NCAA Tournament selection committee bypasses them next week.

Seahawks cornerback, Richard Sherman, was interviewed on ESPN by Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless. Sherman took the opportunity to go off on Bayless.
"I'm intelligent enough and capable enough to understand that you are an ignorant, pompous, egotistical cretin. I'm tired of your ignorant pollution." 
Bayless' response: "I can respect that." Another reason I call him 'Clueless'.
