As our collective (Post)Seasonal Affective Disorder melts away, this week marks the return of MLB Spring Training. While the games don’t count for any meaningful type of record keeping, the question does remain, “Do spring training games mean anything at all?” As baseball fans, we are prone to making overreactions. The nature of sport usually results in dramatic hyperbole and trying to predict the future. This lethal combination causes us to generate grandiose storylines to give everything more weight and meaning. The only way to know for sure, is to break out the abacus and take a look at the past decade’s spring training records and the seasons that resulted from them.
