It is finally here! Pitchers and catchers report this week and that means the smack of a leather glove and the crack of a bat are coming to a ball field near you very soon.

One pitcher who finally has his marching orders is Yu Darvish who was signed by the Chicago Cubs to a 6-year deal worth up to $150 million. Was this the piece that the Cubs needed to take them on another deep run into October?

Plus, the 2017 World Series MVP just inked a new deal with the champion Houston Astros. George Springer will almost multiply his career earnings five times over with his 2-year, $12 million deal.

Graham mentioned it last week but now that Chris is back, and is never one to shy away from controversy, he gets a chance to give his perspective on the Indians removing Chief Wahoo,

Finally, the guys start their yearly breakdowns with an early divisional ranking. Who is the strongest, who is the weakest, and did someone have a tie in their rank?

All that and more this week on Out of Left Field.​
