Good morning everyone! Here's the latest from around baseball:

  • Shannon Drayer has the probables for the Mariners' first Cactus League games which kick off tomorrow.
  • The M's intrasquad game yesterday was rained out.
  • Angels' starter Garrett Richards is expected to miss the first 2-3 weeks of the season.
  • The Phillies lost an exhibition game to the University of Tampa.
  • Our very own Patrick Dubuque hops over to The Hardball Times to discuss the managerial career of Charlie Brown. Yes, that Charlie Brown. Definitely worth the read.
  • Craig Calcaterra tells the story of John Baker (current spring training catcher with the M's) and Jeremy Brown's (a main figure in "Moneyball") relationship after Brown left baseball. It's an interesting story for sure.
  • August Fagerstrom at Fangraphs examines the case of Giancarlo Stanton and how the rest of the league pitches to him.
  • A Yankees fan is attempting to walk from his home in Tampa to see his team play in the Bronx.
