SUNRISE, Ariz.—After arriving to spring training and settling into the team’s clubhouse, Texas Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder told reporters that he was in the biggest shape of his entire life.
“I feel good about this season,” the 275-pound Fielder said. “This is the first spring training I’ve shown up to where I don’t feel like I can get any bigger, so that can only mean good things for me,” he added.
NEW YORK—Longtime New York Yankees shortstop and captain Derek Jeter took to Facebook Wednesday to announce his plans to make the 2014 Major League Baseball season the most self-righteous, insufferable one in recent memory.
“After thinking long and hard, I felt that forcing Major League Baseball to cover me—and exclusively me—despite my tremendous decrease in skills and athleticism, was the right decision for both me and the New York Yankees,” Jeter said in a note posted to the popular social-media site.
