11:39 pm
temperatures, not bad. chilly in monticello, barely above freezing there. 42 for babylon and 40 on the nose in the hamptons. look at the 24-hour temperature change, and it's definitely cooler right now than it was this time yesterday. 8 degrees cooler than it was this time yesterday. so that rain is now coming to an end from northwest to southeast across the area. higher pressure moves in, so we're expecting dry, sunny conditions tomorrow, and certainly cooler than what we saw this weekend. a larger system pushes into the area tuesday afternoon, remains through thursday. that's going to make for some unsettled weather this week and right now, it does look like a primarily rain event. take a look. we mentioned the rain moving through the area. this is a light rain. the rain amounts have been
11:40 pm
nevertheless, here is that system moving through the area of low pressure to the south and as it continues to move offshore, the rain will come to an end tonight. higher pressure moves in tomorrow. we have a cool day and get it with lots of sunshine, so it's dry and nice monday. tuesday, a little bit chillier, afternoon rain starting to pick up, but it continues late tuesday into wednesday and thursday, so you can see something substantial there, 1- 2" of rain with the system that moves in mid-week. tonight, we'll see temperatures at or just below the freezing mark, so any place it's wet, we'll see black ice developing on untreated roads. tomorrow's temperatures will be in the mid-upper 40s. 28 days until the official start of spring. tomorrow, 92 -- not bad, but you'll need the umbrella tuesday, wednesday and thursday.

twitter. now, your jeep sports desk. >> let's start with spring training. decades ago, the purpose of spring training was to get these baseball players into shape.
11:44 pm
job. now they're expected to show up in prime physical shape. congress seems to be a problem for the yankees last year. their lackluster offense late in the season was somewhat due to the fact that they were gassed. otis livingston is in tampa. and they're not going to do it this year. >> let's cue the olivia newton john music, let's get physical. am i dating myself here. hopefully a long run in the playoffs, players will get fatigued and get gassed. the yankees believe they have a remedy for it. put some dirt out and some grass on top of it. another day of stretching, fundamentals, light jogging, and a humongous mound in the outfield that the players have to run up a number of times >> it's cool. i like it >> not a big deal? >> no. it goes, indeed, we have a lot
11:45 pm
of those. it's not a big deal. >> reporter: there are six increments of 10 yards, and it gets to as high as 10 feet at the top. >> just something i've used throughout my whole career. i used it when i was a college coach, i had it for entire teams. that was with the agility, form running, speed development, base running stuff with it. forcing the guys to have to work hard constantly. that's what i'm doing is here to make the guys work >> obviously, it's different, but i don't think they're doing things that are dangerous. it's not like we're skiing down it. i suggested we put snow on it one day and go sledding but i don't think i'll win that. >> reporter: what to name this monstrosity, yankee hill, bunker hill, or my personal favorite, benny hill. instead, they settle on >> i don't name anything that's come from, like, from the stump, it's gone from a bunker to whatever they want to call it at the end of the day,
11:46 pm
happy we're getting support from ownership to the front office, to our staff and our players and i know guys just want to work. >> reporter: there was no c.c. sabathia running the hill. he will, he will be limited because of his knee. reporting from tampa, otis livingston, steve, back to you in the studio >> thanks to otis well, this week, the yankees raised some eyebrows by changing their ticket distribution policy. it's a move that directly impacts your ability to purchase tickets at least on the secondary market on anything but the yankees ticket exchange. for more on that, let's send you back down to tampa where we find wall street journal writer jared diamond. good to see you once again. thank you for joining us. >> glad to be here >> all right. this is something you wrote about last night. for those who weren't caught up on all of the particulars here, did he quickly explain the crux
11:47 pm
>> sure. in a nut shell what's happened is the yankees have outlawed print-at-home pdf tickets. those are the tickets you commonly find on stub hubs, you upload them, the buyer buys them, prints them out and goes to the game. those are no more. the yankees are going to a mobile ticket. the ticket is straight on a smart phone, you go to the game. the problem as it stands, stub hub and other third-party resellers cannot transfer mobile tickets from the original person to the new person. the only way to transfer them is on the yankees ticket exchange which is run by the yankees and has a ticket floor. which means you cannot sell your ticket for dirt cheap. there's a bottom for how cheap you can sell them. at stub hub, you can sell them for as little as you want. >> the yankees say they are
11:48 pm
it happens about 1/100th of a percent of the time, stub hub says. but this isn't really about fraud, is it? >> no, it's not about fraud. it's almost ridiculous we're being told it's about fraud. everyone is aware, which is about controlling their inventory. control of their own secondary market. they're not the first team to try to do this. the dallas cowboys have done this, the golden state warriors have done this in some way, command of stub hub and their inventory. however, for a baseball team to be doing this, it could have a major impact on fans getting those great deals, and it could lead to fewer people in the ball park when the summer comes. >> you reported 40% of the ticket sales are done within 72 hours of actual game time. you spoke to the yankees' randy mede about this, and he said we have the ultimate right to protect the value of our inventory, as long as it's done
11:49 pm
if they're setting a floor on the ticket prices, jared, which makes good business sense, can they really claim it's a free market society? >> let's be clear. they are not doing anything that's illegal. they're not doing anything wrong. we could argue whether it's a good business decision or bad business decision. we could argue whether it's a good pr move or bad. what they are doing is certainly allowed. there's no questions there. when he said it's a free market economy, to me, stub hub is a free market economy. if there's a wednesday night in may against the white sox and no one wants to go to the game, you should be able to sell your ticket for $3. if that's how much they go for on stub hub, that's the free market. on the yankees ticket exchange, they may say you can't sell it less than $9 or $10. stub hub is really the free market but the yankees don't want that. they want these tickets to have value. they want to be able to tell their season ticket holders, look, you will be able to recoup some of your investment
11:50 pm
frankly, it wasn't a very good look to see tickets on stub hub going for $5. >> as we put a pin in this topic, which i think is going to be a topic we're going to be talking about throughout the year. the yankees are an organization built on character but the biggest move includes a man accused of domestic violence. no official ruling has come down, but chapman could be banned from camp. if this is true, is the spring suspension more damaging? >> joe girardi, the manager of the yankees was not happy about that possibility because if you think about it, let's say chapman is handed a 10-game suspension for this alleged domestic violence suspension. part of that suspension is you can't work out in spring training. when he gets back, he's not going to be in shape because he hasn't worked out with the team. if it's 10 teams and he can go through spring training, he's
11:51 pm
10 days, does an extended spring, comes back out, no big deal, ends up flying out after 10 days. >> we'll find out. rob manford might rule on it at the end of spring training. yankees beat writer jared diamond, thank you for your information. >> anytime. now to the ice. and for all the flack the rangers got earlier this year, they are still an amazing home team. their record is 22-6-3. kevin klein drills in the game winner in overtime. they beat the red wings. 1-0 shutout at the garden. nets taking on the charlotte hornets. kimbalwalker has averaged 24 points per game since christmas. that's the second most in the east. tonight, he negotiated around for 28 against brooklyn. 104-96 the final there. a lot on the line in today's rivalry game between st. john
11:52 pm
they were down 19 and stormed back to take a three-point lead with 58 seconds left. isaiah whitehead only shot one for 12 for the pirates and made his free throws down the stretch. st. johns had a chance to win this in the final seconds, couldn't get a shot off. 61-62. seton hall moves within one win of a 20-win season. to the daytona 500 on the final lap. he goes too high. he slips to the back. hamlin had a chance to dive in between him, and he ekes out a 4-inch victory to take his first daytona 500 win. finally, over the past five years, this high school basketball team has gone undefeated. they have 82 section 1 wins and three state championships.
11:53 pm
