Spring training games start this week, on Wednesday to be precise. I know the game is on MLB Network, a channel that I can get, and it's free for now. The Thursday and Friday games are on Sportsnet 1 and regular Sportsnet respectively. Saturdays game is on the radio and Sunday's is shown on MLB Network on a delay. If you can get the MLB Network and Sportsnet you can see lots of baseball this week.
Elsewhere there is not much to report, the Jays do not appear to be interested in any free agents, Scott Boras thinks Rogers is a cheap owner, and the Jays added another AAA pitcher in Liam Hendricks. That transaction leaves Brett Morel in the waiver dark-zone.
In the absence of news I thought we should track all the reasons why the Jays are going to be much better than last season.
Navarro is better than JP Arencibia Ryan Goins can help the team even if he hits 260 Ryan Goins has changed his swing working with Kevin Seitzer. That change will help improve his BA Jose Reyes and his ankle are back to top form Maicer Izturis has lost weight Melky Cabrera has lost weight and his legs are back to normal Edwin Encarnacion's wrist is completely healed Brandon Morrow is back to full health Esmil Rogers has learned/improved the change-up JA Happ has lowered his arm angle and is getting more movement and better results The training staff are focused on cutting down on oblique injuries
The Jays need a season with few injuries if they intend to compete. Am I missing any?
