Team Canada has made it into the Olympics! Billy Crystal leads off for Yanks! Schilling on 60 day DL! Padres in China! Lots of !!!!
OK, not really a lot of news, but time to move on from injuries and back to the fun stuff.
Team Canada makes the Olympics thanks to a 4-3 win over South Korea. They beat the other two teams tied for the top spot, South Korea & Taiwan thus are locked in for one of the three spots.
The Yankees are being silly and giving an actor a spring training at bat, ala the Tigers and Tom Sellick years ago.
Curt Schilling officially on the 60 day DL now, as expected. He is listed as being a possibility to return post-all-star break but odds are the Sox are out a few million instead.
MLB continues to try to move to new countries with the Padres & Dodgers going to China which will probably result in a few stories for the media and a slow start to the season for those two teams and not much else.
MLB's site also has a scouts rate the best tools article today. Ichiro Suzuki wins for best hitter, best bat control, best outfielder, best arm, best baserunner. Orlando Hudson gets best at turning the double play. No sign of any other former or current Jays on the list for first or second place.
So, any other interesting stuff out there?
