Let’s remember how long a baseball season is. When 2012 began, the Marlins and the Angels were supposed to be in the playoffs and the A’s and the Orioles weren’t. We still haven’t played Game 1 of 162. Let’s try to enjoy the ride.

The right-handed hitter has played all three outfield positions in his six-year career, though he’s predominantly played right field and center field.
David Phelps improved his chances of making the Yankees rotation by giving the Bombers another superb outing in their win over Jays on Sunday.
On occasion, Mariano Rivera took A-Rod to task, demanding that Rodriguez raised his game.
