Discover: Three for Thursday

Ian Desmond

1. Free agents still available. We’ve seen some very high-profile signings so far, but there still are big names unsigned for 2016. Roman report looks at possible destinations for Ian Desmond, while I’m Not A Headline Guy… highlights some moves the Yankees might still make. In his Justice4U blog, MLB.com’s Richard Justice says this is where smart teams can do themselves a big favor with savvy shopping. If that’s not enough, Diamond Talk gazes into the crystal ball at next winter’s crop of free agents.

2. Counting down to baseball. As Phillies Insider points out, we’re just three weeks away from pitchers and catchers reporting to camp in Arizona and Florida. Now’s the time to start thinking about tickets, like Cardinals Red Baseball. And if ballpark food is on your brain, The Baseball Sociologist writes about a Minor League club’s call for fan food suggestions.

3. Getting historical. Hopefully you’ve been enjoying David Voigt’s excellent History of Baseball series on Official MLB Historian John Thorn’s Our Game blog. Part 8 is up now, covering the post-war and expansion eras. Carrie Muskat discusses an upcoming MLB Network documentary on legendary Cubs broadcaster Harry Caray, while Cardinals Insider introduces the new Redbird Relics artifacts for fans. For some more recent history, On Cloud Conine revisits the time the Marlins ran out of catchers in the second inning.
