Spring training is coming! Spring training is coming!

Okay, sure, not for another month. And then more than a month until the season actually starts.

BUT, we have DATES now! Actual dates! Dates on a calendar, even! Per MLB.com, the first pitchers & catchers workout will be on February 14th, with the first full-squad workout taking place on February 19th. And according to Hank Schulman, pitchers and catchers report on February 12th.

As we gaze out upon the atmospheric river making its way across California, the warnings of thunder storms, multiple feet of snow and flash floods, I ask, is there more welcome news than the announcement of the start of spring training?

Spring weather warming the air, the smell of freshly cut grass, the sound of a ball hitting a glove. All of that sounds pretty good right now.

Hurry up and get here, baseball. We sure do miss you.
