Lynch skipping Media Day?

One of the biggest days on the NFL's media calendar may go off without one of its more interesting storylines. As of Monday, [Marshawn Lynch], the NFL's answer to Greta Garbo, was still deciding whether to show up for the mandatory team-interview session, even at the risk of incurring fines that could exceed $100,000. Even if he does appear at the podium, look for Lynch to give a figurative stiff-arm to reporters' questions with the same ferocity he displays when pushing away would-be tacklers on his trademark Beast Mode rushes. "If you're forced to do something, it's not as good as if you choose to do it," Lynch told NFL Media last week during an expansive interview. ... "So no, I won't have a lot of interesting things to say. (NFL.com) Comment

Ortiz floats 'time to move on'

So long, Papi? World Series MVP David Ortiz, who turned 38 in November, said in a TV interview that aired Sunday night that he would like to retire as a member of the Red Sox, but said if the club did not offer him another long-term deal, it was "time to move on." ... Ortiz, who has a year left on the two-year extension he signed last winter with Boston, appeared via satellite in an interview Sunday night on Boston CBS4's "Sports Final." Asked by station sports director Steve Burton if he would like to retire with the Red Sox, for whom he has played the last 11 years, Ortiz said, "Hey, I would like to. I'm having fun. It's been a [heck] of a ride as long as I've been here. But as I always keep on telling people, this is a business. Sometimes you've got to do what's best for you and your family.

NBA open to ditching sleeves

Perhaps the league's experimentation with short sleeves will become short-lived. A recent piece for Bleacher Report that polled players about the league's foray into sleeved uniforms prompted a conversation between B/R and Sal LaRocca, the NBA's executive vice president of global merchandising. ... [LaRocca] said plans for next year's Christmas Day uniforms and the 2015 All-Star Game already are being discussed. If the All-Stars make it clear they don't like the look or feel of this year's uniforms, the league will respond accordingly. "If the feedback is that the players don't want to wear them, we won't," LaRocca said. "We are 50-50 partners with the players in everything we do." (Bleacher Report) Comment
