Whenever I sit down to write my articles I usually like to have something baseball-related to listen to or watch.

On the Baseball Solstice

Coors Field Dugout

This is when I start to really get antsy. We’re a month away from the start of spring training. The transaction news has slowed to a trickle since the winter meetings.
