It's finally here. After months of waiting, Opening Day is just around the corner.* Although honestly, good luck picking which day is officially "Opening Day". Is it Wednesday, when the Cardinals and Marlins play the first non-Japan MLB game? Or is it Thursday, when the vast majority of other teams start? Or maybe Friday, when the Rays actually play their first game? The beginning of the season is so staggered this year, I feel like we're easing into baseball instead of having one grand, spectacular Opening Day.

*Yeah, I'm not counting the Japan series as Opening Day. It didn't feel the same to me.

With the season just around the corner, there's a ton of news happening in the baseball world right now. Michael Pineda has shoulder tendinitis and will start the season on the DL. Andrew Bailey has a thumb injury, and it seems like that he starts the season on the DL. Daniel Bard and Felix Doubront have been named the Red Sox's final two starters. And goodness, that's not to mention all the non-AL East news out there.

The big "news" concerning the Rays right now is that Desmond Jennings had a monster game yesterday. Yeah, it's a spring training game so take it with a grain of salt, but Jennings hit three home runs against the Orioles, including one grand slam. Anyone else excited to see a full season of Jennings?
