I love this time of the year! After a Winter of hot stove dealings, rosters start to materialize, but aren’t quite set in stone. Usually fourth and fifth spots in the starting rotations are up for grabs and at least one starting position on every team could change from now until Opening Day.

How will they perform without all the pressure of trying to win their first World Series championship in over a century? Will they be even better or did pressure turn them into diamonds last year?
