Dodger Insider shared a tribute from Vin Scully to his former broadcast partner, and It’s Always A Good Dre in L.A. posted some throwback photos from his broadcasting days. Cardinal Red Baseball writes that St. Louis lost a son, while Cardinal Girl wrote one of her trademark haikus for the occasion.

2. Opening Day around the corner. The regular season nearly is upon us, as preparations continue in Arizona and Florida. In Wakefield We Trust examines the good and bad from Red Sox camp, while Gamer Babes from Half Moon Bay wants to see more hitting out of the Giants’ lineup. Inside the White Sox shines the spotlight on Jose Abreu, stlcardinalsminimo looks around at the starting rotations for NL teams and A Twinternal Perspective discusses switching focus back to the Twin Cities. Not to be missed, Newberg Report has an epic one-sentence post covering quite a bit of ground.

3. National Puppy Day. In fuzzier news, Wednesday was National Puppy Day. The Baseball Sociologist looks at how the day was marked around Major League Baseball. Rollin’ with Rick PawSox looks at some similar days on the national day calendar.

Scott Boras

1. GM Meetings. The eyes of the baseball world are on South Florida, with baseball front offices assembled and trade talk in the air. Brownie Points has quotes from Scott Boras about his client, Xander Bogaerts, and a possible early long-term deal with the Red Sox. Sports Hate Me put together a list of possible trade targets for the Nationals this offseason, while Bullpen, Baseball & Sock Talk looks at some potential free agent signings that could help the A’s. THE REAL CUBS FAN is allowing himself to dream this offseason with some recommended moves for the Cubs, and Cardinal Red Baseball discusses the Redbirds’ reported interest in free agent ace David Price.

2. Hot Stove support group. There are two sides to every trade, so what if your favorite player is on the trading block? Plouffe’s New Hairdo is facing that exact nightmare scenario with reports that namesake Trevor Plouffe is being shopped around by the Twins this winter. Meanwhile, halfgameback wants to help Reds fans cope with losing some of their favorite players this offseason as new Reds GM Dick Williams has said he is willing to listen to offers on all current players.
