    Three most important words of the day -- pitchers and catchers. Where does this day rank on a baseball fan's season?

    Somewhere below the amateur draft. Men play catch!!! Whoopee! Since it happens every year, and since the chances you, the fan, will get to go to spring training this year (which is delightful) are very low, it's not that big a deal.

    Yep, get four guys who lost to the likes of Lincecum, Cain and Bumgardner and all of a sudden the Phillies are world-beaters. This has epic fail written all over it. Older staff, older team.

    Wow. Did someone piss in your corn flakes this morning? I'm going to 3-4 games this spring. Plus, I'll be watching closely to see which players break camp with the big club and which pitchers earn spots in their rotations.

    Pitchers and catchers and it's 51 degrees here today.
    Makes me feel that spring is not far away ... and it won't be long before I'm saying, god, the Mets suck.

    This is the time of year where I can imagine the young Pirate hitters coming together just enough to buoy the arms to a .500 record come late August.

    Sources have confirmed that Jayson Werth's beard has arrived in Viera.

    The Pirates are tied for first place.

    (That's going to be the last time in my life I can write that, so please, let me be.)

    Awful optimistic there, aren't ya? I was thinking April 1 for the Pirates.

    June 1 would be when the Tigers start fading.
