Twelve teams to receive supplemental '15 Draft picks
Major League Baseball's version of the Draft lottery doesn't attract nearly as much attention as its NBA and NHL counterparts, mostly because baseball's top picks aren't determined randomly like they are in the other sports. But for 12 big league clubs, the Competitive Balance Lottery will provide them with a valuable extra selection in 2015.

While the UKâ€™s Islamic advocacy groups whine furiously about â€œIslamophobia:â€ â€™Wave of hatredâ€™ warning as attacks on Jews hit record high.
Attacks on Britainâ€™s Jews have risen to the highest level since records began.
A study published today shows the number of reported anti-Semitic incidents has almost tripled in 10 years, with more than half the attacks last year taking place in London.
The findings prompted the reportâ€™s authors to warn of a â€œwave of hatredâ€ against Jews.
The number of incidents increased to 594 last year, up by 31 per cent on the previous year.
Violent assaults soared to 112, up by more than a third on 2005.
Not that the Muslims were content to just mess with the jews, British Muslims reacted to Wednesdayâ€™s anti-terror raids by releasing a statement that Britain is becoming a police state. All the terrorist were trying to do was blow up airplanes and behead innocent people. Jeez.

Ravens LB Mosley eager to carry on tradition (The Associated Press)
C.J. Mosley completely understands the significance of becoming part of a defense that has a long-standing reputation of greatness. Mosley, the 17th overall pick in the 2014 draft, will seek this summer to become a starting linebacker with the Baltimore Ravens. Athletes who have starred at the position for Baltimore include Ray Lewis, Peter Boulware, Terrell Suggs and Bart Scott - who once wore the No. 57 now utilized by Mosley. The Ravens won two Super Bowls by playing rugged defense, and now Mosley is being asked to adhere to that custom.
Bills' sloppy offense concerns Marrone (The SportsXchange)
Progress is in the eye of the beholder for the Buffalo Bills, who held their first practice in pads on Tuesday before veterans for any of the other 31 NFL teams have even reported to training camp. Head coach Doug Marrone kept a sharp eye on the offense, which appeared sloppy as second-year quarterback EJ Manuel worked on his chemistry with an equally young receiving corps. "They finished strong, but it was not what we wanted," Marrone acknowledged of the offense. While Marrone wasn't pleased with the overall execution of the offense, Manuel thought it was a productive practice.
Rex, Jets hoping new pieces solve playoff puzzle (The Associated Press)
New playmakers, fresh-faced rookies and a rejuvenated Rex Ryan. They all have the New York Jets feeling pretty optimistic heading into training camp, with their sights set on ending a three-year playoff drought - the longest since owner Woody Johnson bought the team in 2000. Despite having inconsistent rookie quarterback Geno Smith start every game last season and an offense that lacked big-time playmakers, the Jets finished 8-8. New York added running back Chris Johnson, wide receiver Eric Decker, quarterback Michael Vick, and a dozen draft picks - many of whom, including safety Calvin Pryor, tight end Jace Amaro and cornerback Dexter McDougle, could see significant playing time.
