Baseball is here. Yes, I know it’s March, and most of you are thinking brackets and basketball, but that didn’t stop Selig and his henchmen from orchestrating a third consecutive opening day in Japan. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, mind you; but it is kinda odd to wake up, turn on the TV, and see Keith Foulke striking out Manny Ramirez to end the 8th. Keith Foulke?! Wha? Ricoh? Am I still awake? Moss who?

So anyway, now that the new major league baseball season is underway, I think it appropriate to compile all the bonus material we have been working in preparation for 2008 here at UmpBump.

Obviously, it wouldn’t be 2008 without some hot off season action. So make your way to our easy-to-digest breakdown of every single major-league club’s offseason strategy.

But don’t forget to check out our “what they still need” features; who knows, some of those teams might still need some of that hocus pocus (yes, Royals fans, keep drinking that Kool-Aid).

For those of you scoring at home, 2008 can be the year of many a milestone. Will Griffey, Jr. reach 600 homers? Will Randy Johnson notch his 300th win? Will Johnny Damon leg-out his 100th triple?

And last but not least, don’t forget to keep up with our Fantasy League. We’ll keep you up with most major transactions. And with all the knowledge we spew everyday and everything, it should be interesting.

(Psst, and don’t forget to be in the look out for these)

What’s that you say? Who are we to judge? Let ‘er rip in the comments!
