Can you believe that Opening Day is less than two weeks away?
While it's always hard to decipher what to make of spring training, it's good to know that following the Seattle Mariners' hot start early on that the team has remained competitive day after day.
Of course, every team over the span of a 162-game season is going to experience both highs and lows, but I like to believe this year's squad will show a certain level of consistency based on what we've seen so far.
Now, though, as we approach the final stretch of spring training some tough decisions need to be made as the roster will need to be reduced before the start of the season, and while most spots at this point are relatively secure, a few are still up for grabs.
So which players have managed to surprise us in their bid for a roster spot?
Which players seem to be on the outs with a disappointing spring?
And perhaps most importantly, who is hurt as we approach the regular season?
These questions and more I hope to address with this week's status report on the M's...
