Hunter Pence Is Already at Spring Training

Today, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and predicted six more weeks of winter. Hunter Pence calls bullshit. The Phillies right fielder, Roy Halladay, and a few of their pals are already down in Clearwater for the start of spring training—even though the actual start is more than two weeks out. With that, and the recent stretch of good weather, we’re thinking we should just go ahead and declare the end of winter. Plan accordingly. [Crossing Broad]
