Now that football season is officially over we can now look forward to some baseball. Granted we still have to deal with the mass hysteria that is National Signing Day tomorrow but after it has come and gone we have a lonely eight months till college football season kicks off. But we can fill it in with some baseball talk with pitchers and catchers reporting in 8 days. It should be a very interesting MLB season with a ton of teams having a good chance to go the distance. If you are a fan of about 20 teams you have a lot to look forward to since in your mind you have a chance to win the whole thing. I could go through all the teams but that is what a preview is for and we are not there yet until all these trades are finalized. I tell you one thing, the American League is going to be nasty this season especially when the Mariners acquire Erik Bedard. Granted my Baltimore Orioles are going to be a terrible team from the day they lace up their cleats in Ft. Lauderdale till the final painful out in late September but at least they finally have a plan in place. There is some hope in Birdland but the rebuilding will take some time.

I'm excited to see all the new faces in new places whether they be new up and coming stars(the Adam Jones' and Colby Rasmus' of the world) or veterans who will be joining a new league(Miguel Cabrera and Johan Santana). Of course I have a lot of thoughts rambling in my head about what might happen this season so be prepared to be unleashed with some knowledge that might make sense or on the other hand might come off as badly as an Andruw Jones strikeout.

By the way, it's been a 100 years now since the Cubs won a World Series. I'm sorry. It's not your fault....
