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.

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby on conference's discussion about expanding to 12 teams. "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.

The Miami Heat issue statement moments ago announcing that Chris Bosh will not play in the playoffs, but that the sides will continue to work together to get him back on the court in the future. Bosh attended practice today in Toronto and watched film with coaches and Miami's younger players. Bosh has repeatedly declined to comment on his status. He has been sidelined with a medical condition since February. Bosh also missed the second half of last season to treat a blood clot that traveled to his lungs.
