After a long, way too dry, and warm winter (at least here in OC), pitchers and catchers report today!
Baseball fans everywhere rejoice! Games will start soon, I'll have to update my Gameday app (makes owning a smartphone worthwhile), once again there will be box scores, and MLB Tonight will be live! Can't wait.
The Yanks will sure be different this year. Two-thirds of the 25 man roster is new--a huge factor and not necessarily a good thing. A-Rod will be gone (Yankees fans are thrilled). Mo is gone (I will really miss him). And Derek Jeter will be hangin' em up at season's end (who will be the next face of the franchise?).
In any case, baseball is back!
Predictions (Leave yours in the comments section below):
AL East: Tampa in a squeaker (with Boston or the Yankees winning the wild card)
Al Central: Detroit (pitching, pitching, and more pitching)
AL West: Texas
NL East: Atlanta (Nats winning the wild card)
NL Central: The Cards (who will win the World Series)
NL West: The Dodgers (pitching, hitting, and more pitching)
