Three straight postponements because of snow only heightened the anticipation for this week’s series in Puerto Rico.

You can pretty much bank on the fact early in the year there’s a good chance that you might lose a game or two, Minnesota manager Paul Molitor said.

Pitaro is charged with repairing ESPN’s relationship with the NFL, which suffered under John Skipper’s leadership. Skipper resigned at the end of last year, telling the Hollywood Reporter he was being extorted by someone he bought cocaine from.
