Scanning the latest MLB headlines

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

Don't have time to read the latest MLB news? Just read the headlines and make up the rest!

I'm a busy guy, and I assume you are too. Unless you're not a guy at all, in which case, this could get awkward fast -- am I in the right restroom? Anyway, as a fast-moving member of society with things to do and people to see, I don't have time to read all of the daily MLB stories in the paper. I barely have time to read all of the headlines. Still, I want to stay up-to-date on the latest "happenings," so I do a quick scan of the top headlines, and infer the rest. You don't really need to read the stories, honestly, the pertinent details are usually in the bold, 15-point font.

As a service to you, then, here are today's top headlines and what are, I'm sure, the down-and-dirty details that you'd find if you read any further.

Yanks reportedly near deal with 2B Roberts

They're still bickering over whether they can just call him "Robertson" and try to fool the fans.

Tigers expecting big things from Rondon

This headline is heavy with innuendo, but the weight of responsibility prohibits me from binging on the buffet of jokes that would surely tip the scales against me.

And now you're up-to-date on the latest buzz around the MLB network. Sigh. How many more days until Spring Training?
