The 2022 MLB playoffs were electrifying, with several moments we will never forget.
The World Series was exciting and closely contested between two excellent teams.
The offseason then took the scene and brought us several high-dollar signings and a few shocking trades.
We are currently in the final phase of the offseason, patiently waiting for Spring Training to come.
If you think about it, Opening Day is actually not that far away in the calendar.
85 days until Opening Day
— Baseball Reference (@baseball_ref) January 4, 2023
Baseball Reference, one of our favorite websites for stats, data, and information about the game we love, is reminding us how far removed we are from Opening Day.
We all have to get through the next 85 days without baseball to get back to enjoying America’s pastime.
The good thing is that the league will probably keep us entertained in the meantime.
There are still big free agents to sign, like Carlos Correa – he has a deal with the Mets but it’s paused due to concerns with his physical.
There are still trades to be executed: several teams need a corner outfield and Bryan Reynolds will likely find himself out of Pittsburgh in no time.
Once Spring Training finally arrives, we will be much, much closer to the real thing.
And, as a nice bonus, baseball fans will get to enjoy the fifth edition of the World Baseball Classic from March 8 to the 21.
We all want live baseball, and it seems we are not that far from enjoying actually meaningful games.
Patience, we are almost there!
