Spring training is happening, but MLB fans never know how to view those happenings.

Nobody wants to be that person who is convinced Mark Reynolds is going to hit .300 after witnessing him fire one liner past the infield off a pitcher bound to start the season in Triple-A. Then again, those who remained oblivious to spring events last year missed harbingers to Domonic Brown and Julio Teheran's coming-out parties.

This isn't the real thing, but it's the closest we have to the real thing at the moment. Might as well make the most of it.

Other than NFL free agency, the NBA and NHL gearing up for the playoffs and March Madness almost kicking off, what else is going on in the sporting community? We might as well kick back and watch some exhibition baseball games.

If the scores don't matter, what exactly should interested onlookers monitor during spring training? Consider these factors for your spring viewing pleasure.
