Yankees GM Brian Cashman said it is his "responsibility" for his last place team's poor start more than manager Joe Girardi or his staff because he put the roster together. Cashman said that he would not represent how owner Hal Steinbrenner feels at the moment, but added Steinbrenner is "clearly not happy." The Yankees are 8-15 as they head into tonight's first pitch against the Orioles.

Carmelo Anthony previously said he planned to play in the Olympics this summer. Now, it sounds as if he's uncertain: "I would like to, but there's other things that come in. There's the time commitment, the load it puts on your body, going to Brazil—there's a lot of safety things that's going on," he said in an interview with Complex.com. "I'm pretty sure sooner than later the USA people would like to know, but I didn't feel like it was a rush. This is the time I distance myself from basketball and try and get some clarity and new energy."
