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.

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.
