Welcome back to FanPost Friday, friends. It’s still hard for me to believe, but the MLB lockout did indeed end yesterday. The players didn’t get everything they wanted and the owners tried to slip as much nonsense into the agreement at the 11th hour, but they sure as heck came to an agreement to make the 2022 season a reality.

Yeah! Spring Training! You know, that daily background noise that we should already be tired of by March 11, but instead we haven’t gotten the onslaught of BEST SHAPE OF HIS LIFE articles and revelations about players re-inventing themselves through a new dietary and/or training regimen. I, for one, cannot wait!

Today and over the course of the next week or so, we will hopefully see some of the long-awaited offseason free agent moves we’ve been endlessly speculating that the Mariners will make. But, to tide us all over until we get some real news to have a meLLtdown about, let’s do some BASEBALL IS BACK polls, shall we?
