Happy Tuesday everyone. With each passing day, we get closer to spring training, and we also get news of MLB throwing a wrench into its own plans. Anyway, today, Josh reflects on the Super Bowl, and warns of a coming MLB campaign that may include plenty of encouragement to support healthcare heroes, while the league itself stages a season that may hurt those same heroes. Tom profiles Jake Marisnick as another potential Brett Gardner replacement, and Cooper examines Gleyber Torres’ standing in the hierarchy of young, exciting AL East shortstops.

Fun Questions

  1. Will Gio Urshela repeat his stunning performance for a third straight year?
  2. Will Tom Brady ever stop winning Super Bowls?
