"I know that 37 pitchers is a funny number. But every pitcher we're bringing to Viera has some intriguing feature of interest in his career history. The more pitchers we look at, the more we improve our odds that one of them will be that guy."

1 might be the loneliest number, but 37 is the funniest number. Spring is in the air!
Like a scene out of George A. Romero's 1978 Classic, NAAAts pitchers and catchers report for duty in Viera, FLA.
...meanwhile, Patterson wants a big raise ($1.85 mil), but Nationals only offered $850K...The Starting Centerfielder inked a 1-year deal...and Steve Trachsel signs a deal with the O's; guess that $400K or whatever the Nats offered earlier this winter wasn't enticing enough.
