Weekly Link Round-Up

The final round-up of spring training!


  • Fangraphs examined the sophomore curse and pointed out that even Troy Tulowitzki suffered from it a tiny bit. They wonder whether Juan Nicasio will.
  • In the third round of Seedlings to Stars’ mock draft, the Rockies take catcher RJ Ybarra 104th overall.
  • Bet you didn’t think the Red Sox rotation could get any more douchey! But they are nothing if not overachievers.
  • The ever entertaining Mark Townsend gave us both written and pictorial evidence of the fact that sometimes baseball is weird. Special thanks to Tyler Colvin for serving as visual aid.
  • There’s nothing quite so entertaining as reading a true fan’s account of their spring training pilgrimage. Especially one as funny as this guy.
