I can't remember having this kind of uneasy anticipation for a season in, pretty much, my lifetime.

Red Sox win a wild card.

Troll pick: Marlins get more wins than Toronto.

I still haven't even picked my 'World Series' pick yet...

I think this should be a great season of baseball. It's been a long time since there has been this much talent in the league. So much ridiculous young talent out there spread across a lot of teams. I'm leaning towards Washington to go all the way...

Nats are a good pick, I think they'll take the NL East, or at minimum a WC. It's all about who's hot at the right time, that's what's hard to predict. I also haven't voted in the poll yet.

Please let this happen, my cousin is a Angels/closet Yankees fan, and Wells is the bane of his existence.

LOL! Vernon is actually playing decent this spring I believe. The best I can say about him is he has been a true professional despite his issues at the plate. He hasn't complained once about lack of playing time. Who knows, maybe a change of scenery will do him some good. Did he ever deserve that contract? Probably not. But he's certainly a better hitter than what he's demonstrated the last couple seasons.

And Cashman getting him isn't that dumb if Moreno is paying most of the contract.

From what I've read looks like the Yankees will only pay about 10 mil of the 42 left on the 2 years remaining. Not terrible, but not sure who they're trading for him.

No name minor leaguer it looks like ... Though the name hasn't been released yet

This is just the Angels clearing him out. If he doesn't completely suck (like he has or the past 4+ years) it could be a decent desperation move ... But he's going to suck. It's inevitable.

Looks like Kyle Lhose finally found a team.

Brewers apparently signing him.

That's good news (for me anyway)

I was thinking that the Yanks or Red Sox would get desperate ... plus I drafted him in late rounds with two different fantasy teams

He's still free in OT's league. But you'll have to use a waiver to claim him right now.

Not an O's fan but I feel for you who are. I caught the replay of Betemit's injury this afternoon and just cringed. No doubt gone for the season but I hope the guy can salvage his career.

Groupon, Miami Marlins’ latest ploy to sell tickets

Remember a couple weeks back when the Miami Marlins turned to a buy-one-get-one-free ticket offer to get fans in the stands for their April 8 home opener? Turns out that was just the start of "Operation Desperate to Sell Tickets."

Now, the Marlins have started selling tickets on coupon site Groupon, giving their "fans" the chance to get tickets for 52% off. But wait, there's more: Buy this deal and you still get the buy-one-get-one-free tickets for another home game in April or May. Act quick and the Marlins will also throw in a $10 merchandise voucher, perfect for buying that "I went to a Marlins game and didn't get traded to Toronto" T-shirt from the gift shop.

I hope you read that in Billy Mays' voice, because that's how it sounded in my head. (Both of those secondary offers, by the way, are true).
Two points here that make me shudder for the future:

• We're still two weeks away from the Marlins home opener. By then who knows what they'll be offering to get fans through the gates. For $20 you'll probably be able to get season tickets, a $50 merchandise voucher, a year's supply of Sham-Wows and a Chia-Pet shaped like Jeffrey Loria.

• If opening day is this tough a sell, what's going to happen in August? How are the Marlins going to get fans out to watch a team that's closing in on 100 losses? Groupon's gonna be like, "Sorry, the cupcake shops have us too busy this week, call Living Social." Living Social's gonna be like, "Sorry, call Little Caesars and see if you borrow some of their sign-twirlers." Little Caesars is gonna be like, "Haha, joke's on you. We're down with the Detroit Tigers."

No joke: I wonder how many people in Miami would rather have a Little Caesars $5 pizza than a Marlins ticket at this point.

Get there early enough and you may become part of the bullpen.
