Through the wickets

Our old friend Jose Vidro reports to Mariners Spring Training...

First day of workouts, and it looks like at least a dozen grounders have already gone through his legs.

Amen, brother.

...from today's Post:
"Reliever Jon Rauch had his first child -- Aubree Elizabeth -- in December, and he arrived at spring training with a tattoo of his daughter's feet on his right calf. 'We were all ready and prepared,' Rauch said, 'and then she came, and you're not prepared for any of it.'"

Pitchers and Catchers Report Today

With apologies to the great Ernie Harwell...

For, lo, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of the singing of birds is come;
And the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.

~Song of Solomon 2:11-12 (KJV)
