The Miami Heat and Chris Bosh haven't seen eye to eye regarding the approach to his medical condition. But this quote from coach Erik Spoelstra today says it all about how Bosh is locked in with his current role as pseudo assistant and bench hype man during games: "(Bosh) has the reputation that when he says something, guys listen. And it was just what we needed last night (entering OT against Toronto). It was a kick in the a--. It really was."

West Virginia athletic director Shane Lyons, on the Big 12 and potential expansion: "Conference expansion is always on a conference's mind. It's just, is it a front-burner issue or is it a back-burner issue? I think right now, obviously, (it's) a front-burner issue (in the Big 12). So we have to make a decision one way or another, then move on. To keep meeting and talking about it and meeting and talking about it is not really doing any of us any good. Once we get all the information, let's make a decision and go with the decision."

Yankees manager Joe Girardi and Carlos Beltran both downplayed the urgency of the meeting the team held prior to Tuesday's loss. Alex Rodriguez had revealed that he told his teammates they could score five runs per game. Beltran said A-Rod made the statement during the team's regular hitters' meeting that occurs before each series to go over the opposition's pitchers. Girardi emphasized to his hitters to stay positive during the session, according to Beltran. While not declaring the contents of his message, Girardi agreed that the team should be able to average five runs per game.

"If we do nothing, we will be substantially behind a decade from now," he said, adding there have been "frank discussions" about falling behind Big Ten and SEC financially, noting "trend lines start to diverge." Doesn't mean expansion is imminent, but it must be seriously considered. "You only do nothing if you have your eyes open to what implications are," he said.
