And by awkward, I just mean awkward for people who want to write stories counting down to Spring Training.

I used to try to do that one year, every day go through a player profile, or an area of the team leading up to pitchers and catchers, but its messy. A lot of players come to camp early now, and not just pitchers and catchers but position players. Then when players don’t come early, like Tejada last year, it becomes a story about how the player didn’t come early!

So, Spring Training starts sometime this week, but it really already started with images of players in cages and on mounds.

Happy early but actually already started spring training season everyone!
