Good morning baseball fans!

Here is a roundup of what’s going on around the National League East.

  • The Mets had a pretty quiet offseason. Should they have made more noise or are they in the right place?
  • The Nationals were very sneaky in assembling a World Series caliber team this offseason.
  • Hosmer and the Royals may be heading towards a feud of reality TV proportions. Just in time for the season, amiright?
  • The Orioles didn’t do the offseason work that they should have.
  • Ian Desmond has a broken hand and it’s hard to see who the loser in this situation really is.
  • Javier Baez is not of this universe.
  • The Red Sox are out to win the AL East again with a powerhouse pitching rotation.
  • The Yankees still need young arms if they want to have any success this season.
  • Trevor May has torn ligament and will likely get season ending Tommy John surgery.
  • Manny Ramirez has a new Japanese baseball contract and it’s pretty amazing (we’re jealous).
  • The World Baseball Classic is getting extremely exciting, just in case you needed us to tell you.
  • The things go very wrong, very fast for the Royals...expect a mass exodus of player
  • Tim Tebow got a hit in a real, live baseball game and it was glorious.
  • The Rockies lined up very specifically for Pi Day and we applaud their effort.
  • Cleveland fans: Don’t panic yet.
  • The Cubs had a very special guest visit them at spring training.
  • What teams are building themselves to be better later and will actually fulfill that destiny?
