1. St. Patrick’s Day. Everyone can use a little luck now and then, and across MLB there’s a lot of green on display today and celebrations from fans like The Canuck Cubbie. Phillies Insider shares some St. Patrick’s Day-themed Phils trivia. Speaking of trivia, did you know Jackie Robinson made his Spring Training debut with the Dodgers on this day 70 years ago?

2. Spring Training at the midway point. As The Baseball Addict informs us, we’re halfway done with Spring Training. On Cloud Conine points out something that many have yet to notice about the 2016 Marlins, while Fish On The Farm put together Marlins Spring Training power rankings. The mid-point of Phillies camp is a great time for The Zo Zone to do a roster projection with Opening Day now rapidly approaching.

3. Previews abound. Freelance Fuego examines how the Royals consistently seem to outperform expectations lately, while Sconnie Sports Talk wonders whether the Brewers might do something similar this season. The Metssiah previews the extremely competitive AL East, Carrie Muskat asks where Addison Russell will hit in the Cubs’ lineup and BBST sees 2016 as a make-or-break season for the Angels’ C.J. Cron.
