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.

  1. The wagnermlbblog author is from Philadelphia, so you have to appreciate these words at the end of today’s post about the first-place Mets: “A team that entered the season on the playoff bubble seems to be proving to the world why they are better than just a bubble team.  And, let’s be honest, us Philadelphians do have some compassion.  Every once in a while you have to let a New York City team have some fun.”
  2. Our friends at the incredible Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City have their official blog right here: Monarchs to Grays to Crawfords. Please be sure to follow it so you see all the posts as they hit your inbox, like these thoughts on what’s missing in the game and the need for more involvement. (By the way, did you know Jackie Robinson’s No. 42 is still being retired?)
  3. Because cat loves the dodgers, we’re going to show you what cat is posting. Like this great photo recap of a rivalry. And cat really loved matt kemp, because that gravatar is still going strong. On an unrelated note, I wonder if cat or anyone else can guess why Cubs manager Joe Maddon likes Meat Loaf. Or which MLB mascot is about to start a blog…
