rlos Beltran replace Curtis Granderson and Wells. Kelly Johnson and Brian Roberts will both vie for Canos job at second while Brian McCann comes in behind the plate. The Yanks also lured the off-seasons biggest international free agent to the Bronx, plucking Masahiro Tanaka from Japan at a cost of $155 million over seven years. Pressure will likely be huge to make the Jeter era end on a high note as the franchise bids farewell to one of its icons. However, the Yanks deep pockets and "winning it for the captain" might not be enough if the teams age starts to show.

Tampa Bay Rays GM: Andrew Friedman Manager: Joe Maddon 2013: 91-71, second in AL East. Lost to Boston in American League Division Series. That was Then: Stop us if youve heard this before, but a shrewd piece of off-season business proved to be a catalyst for the Rays success last season. Trading James Shields to the Kansas City Royals brought in one of the games top prospects in Wil Myers and the 23-year-old turned on the jets almost the minute he made his full-time debut for the Rays in June. Less than a week into his MLB career, Myers had his first grand slam and the kid would hit .293, driving in 53 runs in 88 games en route to the A.L. Rookie of the Year Award. The Rays responded in kind to Myers arrival, losing just five games in July and finishing strong to force not one, but two win-and-youre-in playoff games after a three-way tie left the Rays, Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers tied after Game 162. David Price went the full nine to top the Rangers in Game 163 and Tampa blanked the Indians to make the ALDS. There they would run into destiny in the form of the Boston Red Sox, but the Rays booked another solid season, proving themselves once again to be one of baseballs model franchises. This is Now: The Rays will once again piece together their line-up and try to get maximum efficiency out of low-profile pick-ups. James Loney and Yunel Escobar will stick around in the infield and be insulated by Logan Forsythe. Fernando Rodneys arrows will head towards someone elses rafters, replaced by former As closer Grant Balfour and one-time stud Heath Bell, whom manager Joe Maddon believes will show marked improvement at the Trop. Any team with Maddon at the helm has a fighting chance and the Rays still have tremendous balance both at the plate with Evan Longoria anchoring the line-up and on the mound with Matt Moore and Alex Cobb emerging as legitimate threats alongside Price. Speaking of Price, the vultures will be circling soon enough as the 28-year-olds clock appears to be winding down in Tampa. Likely the next high profile casualty of Tampas tight budget, Price is free agent-eligible after next season, putting his value at arguably its high-point by the middle or end of the 2014 campaign. If the Rays dont get the kind of performance to which theyve become accustomed, could a mid-season move be in the cards?

Unlike the way Roethlisberger toyed with their defence in that game, the Colts didnt let Manning and the Giants (3-5) get going until the game was out of reach in the third quarter.Its awesome. Again, to get number six, that was our goal; get that bad taste out of our mouth coming off the last game and the way we lost that game, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. To, again, be 6-3 and go into the bye on a positive note, get some confidence back, all that stuff.The Giants did everything they could to take Luck off his game. They blitzed him repeatedly and hit him 11 times and sacked him once on a night he was 25 of 46 for 354 yards. Nine different receivers caught passes.Luck hit former Stanford teammate Coby Fleener for a 32-yard TD in the first half. He had scoring throws of 31 yards to T.Y. Hilton, 40 yards to Reggie Wayne and 2 yards to Dwayne Allen in the third period to blow the game open.This is as solid a group as Ive ever played with, Luck said. There are a lot of weapons on this team. Its tough for defences to focus on one guy.Former Giants and current Colts halfback Ahmad Bradshaw cant say enough good things about Luck, who is only in his third season.The sky is the limit for Luck right now, Bradshaw said. With all these great weapons he has and with this offence we have, the sky is the limit for how much he can produce with our offence.It was the eighth time this season that Luck had thrown for more than 300 yards and the 17th time in short career.Andrew Lucck is a great quarterback, Giants safety Antrel Rolle said. Hugo Lloris Jersey. He is a rising star in the league. He has a lot of heart. He is good at finding the mismatches. He did a good job of finding the mismatches. You have to find a way to confuse quarterbacks. I felt we did a good job of doing that early on but in the second half he figured us out a little bit and got a lot of one-on-one matchups.The Giants were generous in defeat, too.Fleeners touchdown came on a play when the defence didnt line up properly because they were wondering whether coach Tom Coughlin would challenge a catch on the previous play. The red flag came out too late.You know as a defence we have to get lined up and get a call. No one got lined up ... we failed to do so as an entire unit. It was one of those plays that cost you, Rolle said.Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie allowed Hilton to rip what looked like a sure interception out of his hands early in the third quarter for another touchdown and Mannings fumble on a sack set up Allens TD catch.Things to know about the Colts-Giants game:COLTS Defence: After allowing Roethlisberger to throw six touchdowns the previous week, the Colts allowed Manning only two late TDs to Corey Washington and Larry Donnell. Indianapolis led 40-10 before taking its foot off the gas.FLEENER: Fleener was targeted 11 times by Luck and finished with four catches for 77 yards. Wayne, who missed last week with an elbow injury was targeted 10 times, making four catches for 70 yards.GIANTS INJURIES: Cornerback Prince Amukamara is probably lost for the season with a torn biceps injury. Rookie guard Weston Richburg left the game with an ankle injury. Coughlin did not know its severityBECKHAM: First-round draft Odell Beckham Jr. had career highs of eight catches for 156 yards with a long of 59 that set up a touchdown by fellow Giants rookie Andre Williams.NEXT WEEK: The Colts get to enjoy the bye, having a two-game lead over the Houston Texans (4-6) in the AFC South. The Giants head to Seattle this weekend to face the Seahawks (5-3).Losses before a bye week stink, Luck said. Not that we needed any more motivation to come out and play, but its good to get a win on this bye week.
