Baseball is coming!

I'm starting to see more grass in my backyard so my anticipation is rising for baseball season. Just two weeks ago I had nearly a foot of snow on the ground. Now, I've got large patches of grass and even smaller patches of snow.

Regarding Tigers baseball, the relief pitching questions remain. Will Rodney be ready by April? Will Byrdak or one of the other relief pitchers step up and perform? Will Todd Jones break out of his funk and get command of his pitches?

On the other side, Verlander is looking awesome this spring training. Last I heard was that he had not given up a single run so far. Let's hope that kind of pitching continues throughout the season.
