There are still a lot of things up in the air; but that’s why we have a month of Spring Training to pare down and really figure out what this team is going to become. Soak in that Arizona sunshine– vicariously if you must.

And just be happy that the Mariners are playing baseball again! I know I am.

One last thing to be watchful of this spring: the battle for bullpen spots is far from over. Veteran Joe Beimel is fighting for a spot, and so far it has been up and down for some of the supposed mainstays in the ‘Pen (ahem Tom Wilhelmsen ahem).

But like everyone says over and over and over again, it’s just Spring Training. Enjoy it for what it is: practice and preparation for the regular season.
