The first story line of the exhibition season: Can a college kid upstage the New York Yankees? No, seriously. The Yankees open the Grapefruit League season Tuesday against Florida State, and the Seminoles' roster includes Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston. Winston closed Florida State's 5-0 victory over Georgia on Sunday by striking out the final batter, Jess Posey, younger brother of San Francisco Giants star Buster Posey. In three relief appearances this season, Winston has given up no runs, no walks and one hit in four innings.

Tuesday will be a landmark day for the Los Angeles Dodgers because their new cable network -- SportsNet LA -- will debut. Unfortunately for Dodger fans, so far only Time Warner Cable -- which is partnering with the team on SportsNet LA -- is carrying the channel in this region. None of the other area pay-TV distributors, including DirecTV, Cox, Verizon, Dish and AT&T, are anywhere near a deal to carry the service. The issue holding up distribution is price. Time Warner Cable agreed to an $8.35-billion, 25-year deal to run SportsNet LA, according to a valuation by the Dodgers and Major League Baseball . The annual fee that Time Warner Cable will pay to the Dodgers starts at $210 million this season and increases dramatically through the life of the contract.

WOMEN'S BOBSLED The U.S. put itself in a risky situation when it switched up bobsled teams last week, moving former sprinter Lauryn Williams to the No. 1 sled with Elana Meyers.

SOCHI, Russia - The waiting Monday morning and afternoon was something to be embraced, not detested. There was no fear in U.S. snowboarder Nate Holland's vocabulary when weather disrupted the Olympic schedule, causing a day's delay to the men's snowboard cross event. "I live for days like this," Holland said. "Like I said, it was a dress rehearsal. You get a free rush out of it…. Like I said, we'll be back tomorrow. Hopefully the weather cooperates. It's time to go. Tomorrow should be a good day to try and win the Olympics.

PAIRS FIGURE SKATING The rich history of Russian pairs skating will once again be on display. Its dominance was so great that some incarnation of Russia won 12 straight golds from 1964 until 2006. Then it was shut out in Vancouver in 2010. This Games pair of Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov should regain gold. WOMEN'S SKI JUMPING It's a showdown in this first Olympic event for women. On one side is 17-year-old Sara Takanashi of Japan. On the other, 19-year-old Sarah Hendrickson of the U.S. It was unknown if Hendrickson would even make it here after suffering a training injury.
