Josh Hamilton, B.J. Upton and Kyle Lohse were among nine free agents who turned down $13.3-million offers from their former clubs Friday as the annual general managers' meetings ended and team officials headed home for what figures to be a busy month of negotiations. Also rejecting the one-year guaranteed offers were the New York Yankees' trio of Nick Swisher, Rafael Soriano and Hiroki Kuroda along with David Ortiz, Michael Bourn and Adam LaRoche. :: Charlie Beljan had trouble breathing even before he teed off, called for paramedics when he made the turn and even told his caddie at one point Friday that he thought he might die. With his job on the line at Disney, he kept right on playing until he had a remarkable eight-under 64 to build a three-shot lead going into the weekend at Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The next question is if Beljan can even play on the weekend.

In her eighth NASCAR race, Danica Patrick and stock car racing finally seemed to click. After struggling with an average 31st-place finish in her first seven races in NASCAR's second-tier Nationwide Series, Patrick was running 12th ? and on the lead lap with eventual winner Kyle Busch ? with 11 laps left in the 150-lap CampingWorld.com 300 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. But Nationwide races have a habit of getting dicey as they near their end, and Saturday was no exception.
