Carmelo Anthony took less than maximum contract from New York Knicks.
At the end of the day, Anthony took less money to stay with the Knicks, as he showed his loyalty to both the Knicks and the New York area fans. Taking less money will allow the Knicks to be more active in the free agent market, although it is unlikely they will be making any big splashes this off-season. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Odubel Herrera will bat leadoff for the Phillies on Sunday.
The Phillies like his bat, which is why they made him a Rule 5 pick from Texas. He figures to play all three outfield positions as well as second base this spring. He will likely be a bench player out of camp if he can hit this spring. He did show some power development in the Venezuelan Winter League, but it remains to be seen if that is something that moves forward for him or not. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
