Baseball starts this weekend, who's ready and who's not?
Spring training will officially be over in just three days. While several MLB teams are still making some last-minute tweaks, for better or worse, they are ready to start the 2013 season.
Let's face it, spring training is pretty much meaningless in terms of win-loss records. But it is the work that gets done during the month of March in order to get teams ready for the long haul of a 162-game season that truly matters. After all, the end goal for each team is the same: win a World Series title.
So, which teams came out on the winning end in terms of what they accomplished, and which teams came out on the losing end in terms of injuries and other minor catastrophes?
Which players gained the most by their experience over the past six weeks, and which players completely spit the bit in their efforts to come out of camp with a leg up?
Let's take a look.
