Weekly Wrap: Baseball’s back

Pitchers and catchers reported yesterday. Baseball is back. All is right in the world.

Well, almost. Maybe we could do something with all of that snow.

On Tuesday, Korean pitcher Suk-min Yoon tweeted a picture of himself wearing an Orioles hat. Although there had been rumors linking the O’s and the pitcher, no deal had been announced when he tweeted the picture. The deal came two days later.

Yoon and the Orioles agreed on a $5.75 million deal, guaranteed over three seasons.

MASN announced this week that it’s adding a seventh spring training game to its broadcast. In addition, MASN released its full regular season broadcast schedule. You can view it and download it, so click here and start your opening day countdown today.
