The Cubs signed Manny Ramirez to be a player-coach at Triple-A Iowa.
A player-coach? So the Cubs minor league system can start grooming it's future attitude problems early? If Ramirez can actually teach what he knows about hitting, then this could be a great move for some of the young prospects who seem on the verge of a call-up, however, we're all going to have to brace ourselves for Javier being Javier, Kris being Kris and a whole slew of other annoyances. The player part of this arrangement for Manny seems a little far-fetched and shouldn't fool you into thinking that a resurgence is headed your way.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Le'Veon Bell (knee) hasn't been cleared to start running yet.
After an injury plagued 2015 season, Bell is looking to get healthy and be ready for the regular season. He has not yet been cleared to start running but with the Super Bowl not being played yet, Bell has time to get back into shape. Expect him and the Steelers training staff to work hard on getting him ready for the regular season where he should be considered a top fantasy RB. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
Kings are strongly weighing the firing of coach George Karl.
It has been rumored for quite some time that it wouldn't be long before Karl was out as the coach in Sacramento. It seems like that time has come as Karl has lost support in the front office among other riffs with players on the team. There is no doubt Karl is a great coach but this fit with the Kings just wasn't a good one from the start. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
