Important Graph re: the Proximity of Opening Day
Actual data from a totally real source reveals that the baseball enthusiast’s ability to care for most everything declines considerably as the official start of the season approaches.

To wit:

Two Games to Maybe Watch
If you’re not busy or whatever, maybe consider watching one or both of these games on MLB.TV.

Colorado at Seattle | 16:05 ET
After recently securing the No. 2 spot in the Rockies rotation, famously old left-hander Jamie Moyer is scheduled make what is presumably his final spring appearance today.

New York AL at Miami | 19:10 ET
Right-hander Carlos Zambrano, averaging about a strikeout and a walk per inning this spring (17.2 IP, 18 K, 14 BB) makes his first start at Marlins Ballpark. Reports on Zambrano’s velocity have been encouraging this spring — and he’s scheduled to make the fourth start of the season for the Marlins — but he has nine walks against only two strikeouts in his last two spring starts, too.

Crowdsourcing Broadcasters: New York (NL) Radio
Recently, we released the results of our television broadcaster rankings — itself the product of reader crowdsourcing that started in late November. Now, FanGraphs is asking readers to rate the radio broadcast teams for all 30 major-league clubs (Click here for more on this project.)

Please note that today we’re crowdsourcing the Mets radio broadcast from last season — to help serve as a baseline of sorts for the other 29 broadcast teams. We’ll publish a ballot for Rose and new partner Josh Lewin during the season sometime, to give fans a chance to become acquainted with the latter.

Rate other teams: Washington / Toronto / Texas / Tampa Bay / Seattle / San Francisco / San Diego / St. Louis / Pittsburgh. / Philadelphia / Oakland.
