The whitish Indiana limestone and Deer Isle granite walls of the new Yankee Stadium rise imposingly in the Bronx, a structure meant to awe like a modern Colosseum or perhaps Versailles. Across town in Queens, the red brick exterior of Citi Field frames its arched entries, leading into a massive rotunda that evokes Ebbets Field and simpler times.

Sabathia strong in last spring start (AP)Posted by DuckSnort 53 minutes ago (http://us.rd.yahoo.com)
The New York Yankees got a major scare in opening-day starter CC Sabathia's final spring outing. The left-hander had Jason Ellison's line-drive RBI single go off his glove in the second inning of New York's 8-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday. "Not what to you want to see," New York manager Joe Girardi said.
Ramirez to be Royals' No. 5 starterPosted by DuckSnort 53 minutes ago (http://feeds.cbssports.com)
The Royals optioned RHP Brian Bannister to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday, handing the No. 4 and 5 starting pitcher jobs to veterans Sidney Ponson and Horacio Ramirez. Manager Trey Hillman said Ponson would be the fourth starter and work the home opener April 10 against the Yankees. Left-hander Horacio Ramirez will be the No. 5 starter but would also work out of the bullpen. The Royals do not have to add Ponson to the big league roster until April 10, which would allow them to carry a position player, such as Ryan Shealy, Bryan Pena or Tony Pena Jr., who are out of minor league options, for a few extra days.
Baltimore SP Mark Hendrickson is likely to end up pitching out of the Orioles rotation when the team breaks spring training camp, reports MLB.com. The Orioles traded Hayden Penn and manager Dave Trembley tabbed Alfredo Simon as a starter. Trembley also admitted he's looking at Brian Bass in a relief role. Those two developments lead to the assumption that the final three spots in the Orioles rotation will belong to Simon, Adam Eaton and Hendrickson.
Wright extends deadline for decisionPosted by DuckSnort 53 minutes ago (http://feeds.cbssports.com)
Royals right-hander Jamey Wright, who had a clause in his contract he could become a free agent if not placed on the big league roster Wednesday, extended the deadline. "We've got some more time with Jamey as we continue to filter through some things," GM Dayton Moore said. "Jamey decided this was his best chance to be on an opening day roster and that's what he is going to do."
Royals buy time for extra roster spotPosted by DuckSnort 53 minutes ago (http://feeds.cbssports.com)
The Royals do not have to add No. 4 starter Sidney Ponson to the big league roster until April 10, which would allow them to carry a position player, such as Ryan Shealy, Brayan Pena or Tony F. Pena, who are out of minor league options, for a few extra days.
The News According to the Washington Post, there is one outfield spot left up for grabs in the Nationals' lineup. That spot is in right and the job has apparently been narrowed down to two choices: Austin Kearns and Elijah Dukes. Our View It looks like it will come down to who has the best production in the remaining spring games. But if we had to choose, we'd give Kearns the slight edge. He doesn't come with all the attitude and the rap sheet that Dukes brings to the table. Then when Kearns inevitably gets injured, Dukes can have the job.
The News The Washington Post reports that Elijah Dukes is in the running for the final spot in the Nationals' outfield. He and Austin Kearns are the two finalists for the job. Our View Adam Dunn and Lastings Milledge are slated to start in left and center respectively and if Dukes can impress enough over the last few games he has a shot to win the job in right. However he got off to a rough start today striking out three times in three at-bats. We're guessing he'll end up in right eventually though as Austin Kearns has proved over his career that he can't stay healthy.
The News Jorge Cantu had a nice day at the plate Wednesday going 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI. The homer was his second of the spring. Our View Last year was quite a surprise as Cantu bounced back with 29 homers and 95 RBI. There's no telling which Cantu will show up this year, but we're guessing he won't repeat those numbers. Still, if he even comes close he's a nice late pick at third.
The News Jeremy Guthrie got blasted by the Marlins on Wednesday, allowing eight runs on ten hits in only four innings. He was marked with his second loss of the spring. Our View Baltimore's "ace" was miserable once again this spring. He now has a 10.57 ERA since returning from the WBC and doesn't look like he even knows what he's doing out there. He may be Baltimore's best pitcher, but he'll be your worst if you draft him.
The News Nick Markakis was 2-for-2 with two RBI Wednesday and blasted his second homer of the spring in a losing effort. The Marlins trampled his O's 13-2. Our View Markakis is hitting .370 this spring and looks ready for the season to start. He's a great outfield pick on draft day as he's productive in every category, and he's due for a break out season.
