re: MLB: ONE WEEK!
By the way, the situation for the Dodgers with the shortstop position might be transforming into a major headache. (I find all of this ironic since Ramirez should really be at third base these days but whatever.) Not only is Hanley Ramirez now likely out for at least the first week or so of the season, in all likelihood (and it could be much, much worse), but Dee Gordon, who would be their backup SS, is out with a slight ankle sprain, and is probably going to miss the first couple of weeks of the season...
I guess they could play Juan Uribe, who's collecting quite the handsome salary for doing pretty much nothing.
Thank God Sabean actually chose to not bite on any kind of deal like that for Uribe, his 2010 exploits nevertheless still appreciated, lol.

There are some sins that you commit that you can't come back from, you know, no matter how hard you try. You just can't. It's like the devil is waiting for your body to quit. Because he knows, he knows that he already owns your soul. And then I think maybe there's no devil. You die... and God, he says, Nah, nah you can't come in. You have to leave now. You have to leave and go away and you have to be alone. You have to be alone forever.
The Indians optioned Trevor Bauer to Triple-A, reinforcing the idea that the resurgence of Scott Kazmir has culminated to Kazmir winning the 5th starter role this spring. Francona is yet to announce that, but this was one of the more "out-of-left-field" stories of the preseason this year to me.
