Good morning baseball fans!

For all you baseball diehards, here is a list of all the Opening Day games, along with their pitching match-ups and stream links.

Those who love to talk about rankings, the latest rankings come to us from Baseball Prospectus, and they are sure to cause some discussions.

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal published his "good-for-nothing" predictions for each team.

The Tampa Bay Rays have told James Loney that he won't be on the team, and that he will either be traded or released.

Here is a round up of the latest news surrounding the American League West.

Seattle acquired Nick Vincent from the Padres.

And the Angels signed Kyle Kendrick to a minor league deal.

For a team that will be down one reliever for a while, losing another could be a big blow. Yankees left-hander Andrew Miller has a chip fracture in his wrist, and is set to visit with a hand specialist.

Owen Watson of FanGraphs tried to put together a record-breaking strikeout rotation.

Whether we’re in a strikeout bubble is something that can be debated; the realities of it cannot, and those realities make it a lot harder to post better-than-average strikeout numbers over a team from 25 years ago. Maybe it’s simply not a record to be broken in this era. Then again, few teams have had the sort of resources that the Dodgers currently have. Maybe we just need them to go all, all in. Somehow, $238 million doesn’t seem that bad for that rotation.
