Pitchers and catchers will all have reported to Spring Training this week. They say pitchers report first because they need longer to get their arms ready, but I’ve always been convinced it’s because none of the hitters want to show up the same time as a fresh new group of weirdo pitchers. Either way positions players have a short while left on their vacations before they’re off to Arizona / Florida as well.
Looks like some guys are more ready than others. Jason Kipnis is on the ready side, clearly. He posted on Instagram showing us all he’s in prime drinking & golf shape. Someone worked hard in the offseason. Name two things baseball players do more of in the offseason than drink and golf? Ya can’t.
Alright well maybe I’m not too confident in the condition of his golf swing, or the time on the shotgun either. Imagine waking up and being able to grab a case of beer and play TPC Scottsdale with your boys when it’s empty.
