    • Yankees signed third baseman Chase Headley to a four-year deal. The deal is worth $52 million. Headley also had reportedly been pursued by the Giants, who have a void to fill at third base. Headley, who was traded to the Yankees by the Padres prior to the trade deadline last season, hit a combined .243 last season with 13 home runs and 49 RBIs. Following the trade to New York, he hit .262 with six home runs and 17 RBIs after hitting just .229 in 77 games with San Diego. The signing leaves the Yankees with questions as what to do with Rodriguez, who will be returning from a one year suspension for violations of baseball's drug agreement and labor contract. General manager Brian Cashman said at last month's GM meetings that A-Rod will have to win a job.

      "If I signed a Chase Headley, he would be the starting third baseman," Cashman said then. "[Rodriguez] is going to compete for at-bats and for a position. The position would be third, and obviously DH, and that's it. Maybe some time at first base. He may be eventually the everyday third baseman, he may be the everyday DH; I just don't know." The move gives some infield flexibility to the Yankees, as Headley can also play first base. But it certainly looks like for the first time in two decades, the soon-to-be 40-year-old Rodriguez, who has not played a full season since 2007 because of the suspension, leg operations and operations on both hips, will be coming to spring training without a job. He is under contract until 2017 and is owed a minimum of $61 million, a number that could swell by another $30 million, in $6 million increments, every time he reaches a contractual home run milestone. "That has nothing to do with devaluing Alex or disrespecting Alex or anything of that nature," Cashman said at the GM meetings in November. "It's just a fair assessment of the unknown. You can't quantify the unknown right now until you get him out there on a consistent basis to see if he can actually remain on the field, stay healthy, be productive and be that middle-of-the-lineup threat and force that we've all come to see for years gone by."

      Headley, who played the previous six seasons for the Padres, had a breakout year in 2012, hitting 31 home runs and leading the National League with 115 RBIs -- big numbers considering Petco Park's dimensions and the lineup around him. He added a Gold Glove Award and finished a deserving fifth in the NL MVP voting. Headley, who will turn 31 in May, was paid $10.525 million in 2014. In eight seasons, he has hit .265 with 93 home runs and 418 RBIs.

    • A man who severely beat a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium has pleaded guilty to a federal weapons charge. Marvin Norwood pleaded guilty Thursday in Los Angeles to being a felon in possession of firearms. He faces 10 years in prison when he's sentenced May 7.

    • Tionne Watkins better known by her stage name T-Boz, is an American singer, songwriter, model, dancer, actress, author, and executive producer. This former TLC singer has lived on a financial rollercoaster. In 1995 she went so broke that she was forced to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and just a few years later she filed individually. In 2011 after she received medical treatment for a brain tumor and sickle cell anemia. Recently, she tried to file for debt again after all her medical problems caused her to go broke! The first time she filed for bankruptcy was in 1995, due to a famously short-shifting record deal. The second time was in 2011. By all accounts, the Grammy-winning artist was living a modest lifestyle, but she hadn’t been working much (according to court docs, she only pulled in $1200 a month in royalties), and had accrued crazy medical bills due to the brain tumor and the Sickle Cell Anemia. And then there was her ex, rapper Mack 10, who owed her $250,000 in back child support.

    • Juliet and Shawn go away for a "grown-up" vacation, where they encounter a couple, Clive and Barbie, who turn out to be a couple of conmen. Shawn and Juliet thwart their racket, while simultaneously solving a murder committed by "Arrested Development's" Tony Hale.

      The real interesting news, though, is that Shawn was going to propose. What is awesome is that all along, I thought he was going to. But when it didn't happen in the hot-air balloon, I thought I must be wrong. But instead of it happening, Gus finds Shawn's hidden ring in the Nintendo that was stolen from Shawn's room by Clive and Barbie. Didn't the look on Gus's face just break your heart a little?

      In an awesome B-plot, Gus, Lassiter and Henry go out to see who can do a better job picking up chicks and Henry's finds himself a crazy daddy-issues girl looking for a sugar daddy. It was hilarious. I particularly liked Gus's line to Henry, "Yeah, but when you were young on the outside, this was all farmland."

    • Dish Network subscribers were unable to watch Fox News Channel and the Fox Business Network on Sunday when the channels were taken down as part of contract negotiations. The Fox blackout is just the latest skirmish as cable and satellite TV providers fight with networks over subscription fees. Dish Network just settled disputes that led to the temporary blackout of some local CBS stations and a separate blackout related to Turner Broadcasting channels — including Cartoon Network, CNN, Boomerang and Turner Classic Movies. Dish has more than 14 million satellite TV customers. Fox is urging viewers with emails and tweets to switch to another TV provider. Both sides in the latest spat are blaming each other. Englewood, Colorado-based Dish Network Corp. said in a statement that 21st Century Fox, Inc., was blocking access to the two chancels as part of contract negotiations. New York-based Fox said Dish shut down the server at 11:50 p.m. Saturday, 10 minutes before the contract ended.
      Dish blamed Fox for introducing other channels into negotiations despite those not being included in the contract up for renewal. "It's like we're about to close on a house and the Realtor is trying to make us buy a new car as well," Warren Schlichting, Dish's senior vice president of programming, said in a statement "Fox blacked out two of its news channels, using them as leverage to triple rates on sports and entertainment channels that are not in this contract." Fox said Dish was to blame for prematurely shutting down the network "in an attempt to intimidate and sway our negotiations." Tim Carry, executive vice president of distribution for Fox News, said in a phone interview that Fox was offering Dish a deal similar to what it has with various cable providers. Dish wanted something different, he said. "How can I continue a relationship with someone who feels that they can be treated differently?," Carry said. He blamed Dish for not evolving its business model: "There's at the end of the rope of the pricing and marketing model they put in in 1993 and have not changed."
    • It is hard to imagine a classier hockey player, on and off the ice, than Jean Beliveau. A supremely skilled center who spent 18 full seasons and parts of two others with Montreal, Beliveau was also a popular ambassador for the sport. He scored 507 goals, won 10 Stanley Cups and was captain for 10 seasons before his retirement in 1971. He then moved seamlessly into an executive position with the club.

      Beliveau was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1972. He won two league MVP awards and has his name engraved on the Cup 17 times, including for years he was in the Canadiens' front office."No record book can capture, no image can depict, no statue can convey the grandeur of the remarkable Jean Beliveau, whose elegance and skill on the ice earned the admiration of the hockey world while his humility and humanity away from the rink earned the love of fans everywhere," NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement.

      "Mr. Beliveau was a formidable presence and his departure leaves an immeasurable void. As we grieve that he has left us, we cherish what he gave us: A sport elevated forever by his character, his dignity and his class." Canadiens fans who revered Beliveau were given a scare in 2000 when he was diagnosed with throat cancer, but after losing 30 pounds during treatment and enduring "the worst period of my life," he recovered. Soon, he was back in his familiar spot attending nearly every home game with his wife Elise in the seats among the fans. He also survived a stroke in 2012.

      When the Canadiens opened Centennial Plaza at the Bell Centre as part of the team's 100th anniversary, their four greatest players were honored with statues: Maurice Richard, Howie Morenz, Guy Lafleur and Beliveau. "Like millions of hockey fans who followed the life and the career of Jean Beliveau, the Canadiens today mourn the passing of a man whose contribution to the development of our sport and our society was unmeasurable," team owner Geoff Molson said in a statement. "Jean Beliveau was a great leader, a gentleman and arguably the greatest ambassador our game has ever known."

      Molson said the club will work closely with Beliveau's family "to organize the ceremonies that will take place in the coming days." Beliveau embodied all the attributes of the Montreal dynasty teams of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s: talent, flair, intelligence and success. "Meeting him is not like meeting other stars from the old days," said Beliveau's former linemate Gilles Tremblay. "When people see Bobby Hull, they say: 'Hi Bobby.' When they meet Big Jean, it's always: 'Hi, Mr. Beliveau.' He commands respect."
    • Former teammates joined hundreds of fans and Quebec's premier at the Bell Centre on Sunday to pay tribute to Jean Beliveau, one of the greatest Montreal Canadiens. Beliveau, who died Tuesday at 83 after a long illness, lay in a closed casket at center ice. Fans stopped briefly to give their sympathies to Beliveau's wife, Elise -- who shook every hand that passed -- as well as his daughter and granddaughters Magalie and Mylene.

      The casket lay between two giant posters of Beliveau in his prime as an imposing center on the powerhouse Canadiens teams of the 1950s and 1960s. Also on display were the Stanley Cup and three other trophies he won -- Hart (MVP), Lady Byng (sportsmanship) and Conn Smythe (playoff MVP). Fans began lining up in the early morning in frigid weather for the public viewing, the first for a Canadiens player since Maurice "Rocket" Richard died in 2000. Many were dressed in the Canadiens' red, white and blue jersey. "It was wonderful," said former teammate Dickie Moore, who visited Beliveau often during his illness. "I think Jean would love to stand up and say thank you." Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard recalled getting the autographs of Beliveau and other Canadiens when he was a teenager. "To me he summarizes elegance, confidence, and the image of what we would like ourselves to be," Couillard said. Asked what he felt Beliveau's life represented, Couillard said "confidence."

      "It was at a time when Francophone Quebecers in particular needed much more confidence in themselves and I think he was one of the elements that created that confidence," he said. "For this, we are immensely grateful. He was not only a great athlete and player, he was a great man, a great Quebecer and a great Canadian." Beliveau won 10 Stanley Cups as a player with the Canadiens from 1950 to 1971 and another seven as an executive. In 1,125 regular-season games, he had 507 goals and 712 assists. He is best remembered as an iconic team captain, and for his grace off the ice. It was a difficult week for the Canadiens, who had lost speedy left wing Gilles Tremblay to an illness only days before Beliveau died. Yvan Cournoyer played on a line with Beliveau and Tremblay, and Beliveau was his first captain with the Canadiens. "I always called him not Jean, but my captain," he said. "I had a chance to win my first Stanley Cup with Jean. I had a chance to dress beside him and I roomed a lot with Jean. For me, he was like a father. He called me his son many times."

    • First of all, love does not run smoothly in the "Dexter" world. As soon as a couple gets moony-eyed, we're afraid for the fate of their relationship or worse, their mortality. Both Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) and Dexter (Michael C. Hall) especially have bad track records.
      That doesn't mean we don't have hope though. We were reluctant at first but are coming around about Quinn (Desmond Harrington) and Deb together. She's seemed a little more steady, mature this season. And really, his declaration of love, saying that Deb's like a man, but in a good way, is just too adorable. Yeah, they deserve each other.
      We're not thrilled with how Deb's been making herself the target of Jordan's (Jonny Lee Miller) police hatred though. When he insinuates that she's obsessed with him and how he's concerned for her ... why does that sound like a threat? "You're in danger. Don't say I didn't warn you," she tells him. Heed yourself, Deb.
      The Morgans are falling fast. After Dexter's night with Lumen (Julia Stiles) they're all cosy now. They act like a couple, holding hand, making plans. Record scratch. Yup, isn't that the kiss of death? We're not talking about a house and home, but Lumen has invited herself to Harrison's birthday party in Orlando, and they do fantasize about just running away together (hence, "Hop a Freighter").
      Even Deb observes that whoever is helping the Vigilante/Victim, that it must stem from love. "what they're doing is devotion ... serious s***. It's pretty f***ed up and kind of beautiful too."
      Is it any wonder that Jordan captured her? Don't make plans, people. Some villain just wants to come along and ruin them for you.
      Of course, our biggest fear is that Lumen will have to die. We don't think the producers will do that to us (and poor Dex) two seasons in a row, but frankly, we're not sure. We can't even begin to predict how they'll wrap up all these loose ends in the finale.
      We hope Dexter's wrong when he says, "Is this the only love I'll ever find -- that ends in blood?"
      Other musings and highlights:
      Deb has become incredibly astute and instinctive this season. We wonder if this will translate do figuring out her brother's secret.So suddenly Laguerta is a good guy again? Okayyyy.What's on Quinn's computer: "A cat that hiccups and farts at the same time."Hey, Leslie Grossman! What have you been up to since "Popular"?We were NOT happy when Dexter got tased. Liddy's death was such a relief for us, and we're afraid of what that means about our humanity.Okay, Liddy's texting "yes to magician" was kind of funny. But that's all.Yeah, Emily. You knew that your Stockholm Syndrome thing with Jordan was going to end badly, right?Jordan scares us so much, especially when he says lines like, "I find this profoundly distasteful. I never had to do anything before," while wielding a poker. Follow Zap2it on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest news and buzz
