I’ve heard from so many people reaching out in support of my family and me. They’ve expressed a desire to continue to hear my voice and communicated to me that I’ve been their baseball go-to guy for as long as they can remember.
When pitchers and catchers get ready to report, I immediately wonder how many guys will be quoted as saying, “I’m in the best shape of my life.” I know I said it aloud at least once. My curiosity has already been confirmed with a recent article by Hardball Talk. http://www.prosportsdaily.com/Headlines/ExternalArticle?articleId=500622. Madison Bumgarner is ready for Spring Training. It’s so predictable that players league-wide will suggest that somehow this year and their off-season will be different than the others.

Drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 1989 MLB Draft, Zaun reached the majors in 1995. After being traded to the Florida Marlins, Zaun won a World Series in 1997. After that, Gregg continued to live his major-league dreams, but it wasn’t until 2004 when the Blue Jays made him their starting catcher that Zaun finally felt at home.
