    My fantasy baseball is A-Rod starting for anyone except the Yankees or the Rays.
    Hey how about the Yankees trade A-Rod (and agree to pay his salary) to the Red sox for the Red Sox 35th Round Draft pick in the 2024 Draft?

    It’s funny because even though it’s later than usual, there are still delays. I’m just a little annoyed the WBC caused Opening Day to be on the same day as the National Championship.
