UPDATES & NEWS
Monday has been loosely mentioned as the day Carmelo Anthony will make his decision.
Ha, that basically means nothing to me as Melo could make a decision Monday, but could also wait a few more days. From what I have read, the Lakers and Knicks are the two main teams he is deciding between. A lot of teams are waiting on Melo and Lebron to sign with a team before they sign other free agents. It would be a devastating blow to the Knickerbockers if Melo chooses the Lakers over them. ANALYST: Mark Kaplan
Jon Lester said he feels good after his live batting practice session on Friday.
The Cubs have very high expectations after signing the 31-year old lefty to a six-year, $155 million deal in the offseason. The move to the NL should help maintain that 9.01 K/9 he had last season and if he can maintain his usual walk rate and groundball rate, he should be able to keep the ratios down as well. If you miss out on one of the top-tiered pitchers in your draft, a fourth-round Lester isn;t such a bad anchor for your rotation. Analysis: Howard Bender
