Spring Training is a great time of year, because it means the start of Colorado Rockies baseball is right around the corner.

However, few people actually keep up with the news of Spring Training … much less watch the games.

Usually the starting lineup and pitching rotation are set in stone, except for maybe a couple of players duking it out for the starting job or even just a spot on the team.

No matter the situation, Spring Training is a time for players to work on new and different styles or techniques in a game scenario.

Sorry to tell you this, but the player who is hitting .390 in March won’t be hitting anywhere near those numbers come July and August.

The stats players put up in Spring Training tell us very little. For the most part, you have to look past the inflated stats and judge a player based upon how he looks.

For example, is Jon Gray confidently throwing the curveball he wanted to add to his arsenal this offseason? Does Ian Desmond look comfortable at first base?

These are the things that matter. The outcome might not look good, but who cares.

The only thing that matters is improvement.

For all of you out there that missed Spring Training, here are 5 things that happened during March that might affect play come April.
