Sizing up the Rays
The exhibition season is underway, giving the Rays players a chance to show off. Good thing, because some of the decisions are going to be difficult, and every action will be studied. Here is a position-by-position look at what the Rays have to work with and decide over the next month.

Keeping their focus
Yankees have their own ideas about what it takes to repeat as champions.
