When spring training really matters

Only a few spring training games to go now for each team. The real games are about to start, where all batting averages and ERAs head back to zero. The good thing about performances in spring training is that they can be turned to your advantage whatever the situation. (more…)

Tigers rumble with the Red Sox

So much for spring training games being gentle, laid-back affairs. The Red Sox and the Tigers had a bit of a stand-off yesterday.

U.S. Time change
