90 days

Temperatures in the Midwest have been quite frigid lately, and the eastern portion of the United States seems to be in pretty bad shape as well.  But keep holding on, because we have only 90 days until pitchers and catchers report!

101 days…

Why not start counting down?  Each new spring brings a new beginning, no matter where your team finished last season.

This day in baseball: Koufax and Drysdale sign

Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale signed for $130,000 and $105,000, respectively, on March 30, 1966 with the Los Angeles Dodgers.  The agreements ended a 32-day holdout in which the two pitchers had refused to report for Spring Training.  Their actions would pave the way for other players to be more aggressive when negotiating with team owners.

Quote of the day

I hate the cursed Oriole fundamentals… I’ve been doing them since 1964. I do them in my sleep. I hate spring training.
