Spring Training is Here

The Twins opened spring training in Fort Myers, Fl. yesterday. After one of the busiest and most controversial off-season in their history, the Twins will now start playing some baseball.

There are a lot of questions about this team, and now we will start getting some answers. I always enjoy the start of a new baseball season. It signals the end of winter and the start of spring. It also means I can some more baseball cards to players during spring training.

I will be writing more about the challenges that await the Twins this year. However, one problem they don’t have is their ace pitchers won’t be leaving via free agency at the end of this year. Cleveland ace C. C. Sabathia has told the Indians he is done negotiating with them and will become a free agent. Cleveland could lose Sabathia without getting anything but draft picks in return. I guess they should have traded him to the Mets for prospects.
