You know that the baseball season has truly begun when Reyes hits the DL with a hamstring strain. Ahh, how I have missed wondering if Reyes will return to full health on schedule!
The man they call Shanf has also landed on the DL with a hamstring strain, opening up an opportunity for top prospect Jackie Bradley Jr. after he lost the battle for the starting center field spot to the newly re-animated Grady Sizemore
The Cubs won't talk about extending Samardzija during the season, making a deal there less likely as well.
The former Pirates and Red Sox star hit turned into a pumpkin the minute he hit his age-31 season and as it turns out, pumpkins can't hit. At 35, Bay will call it a career rather than wondering the far East.
