I Swear It Wasn't All Me

Baseball-Reference has pages for just about every player in existence.  So when the come out with the 200 most popular pages since they started you wouldn't expect any specific random minor major league catcher on the list.  Alas, Mike Nickeas is the 173rd most popular player on the site.  If that isn't weird enough for you then I don't know what is.

In other news, pitchers and catchers report in a few days.  Many players have already reported, although none of them are named Oliver Perez or Luis Castillo.  Some players that have arrived are Mike Nickeas, David Wright, Josh Thole, Daniel Murphy, Brad Emaus, Chris Capuano, Fransisco Rodriguez, and Jon Niese.  Baseball is so close I can almost taste it.

As for Joe Smith, because I know you all care, he reported to Indians Spring Training this week.

Let's Go Mets!

That's funny that Mike Nickeas is getting looked up that frequently.

I'm looking forward to the official start of spring training. I'm sure that by the time the exhibition games start we won't be thinking about which players showed up early for the voluntary camp and which ones didn't.

The important thing is that baseball is coming.
