Good morning and happy Groundhog Day! We are now only 63 days away from Opening Day!
- Apparently the Pirates signed some loser named Juan Cruz to a minor league deal with a Spring Training invitation. Cruz is a 33 year old reliever who may or may not have a chance to make the MLB team, assuming he does well in Spring Training.
- Speaking of pitchers, @rtjr and @McEffect got Edwin Jackson trending. in. Pittsburgh. While this may seem a bit odd, I think it’s more of a practical joke just to get Jackson trending. Of course, Joel Hanrahan, @hanrahan52, had to get involved.
