Pitchers and Catchers Report, Manny to the A's.

Pitchers and catchers have reported to PSL and have their first workout on Wednesday. To be honest, their isn't much to talk about at this point until they start working out and playing some games. It just feels good to know that somewhere on a ball field today, in St. Lucie County, R.A. Dickey is throwing a ball to a catcher, life is good.

   This is how I felt this morning when I woke up to pitchers and catchers today.

On the A's side of things, Oakland signed free agent Manny Ramirez today. This seems like a great move for the A's. As we have discussed before, the A's are clearly out of contention this year and are focused on the future. That being said, they still need to put fans in seats and win some games. Signing Manny is a no risk move that will give them some offensive power and has enough name recognition and infamy that people might pay to come see him. He only cost half a million dollars, if he busts no one will be surprised and if he meets his projected .241/.342/.363, then he will be a good value.
