Speaking of short-lived mascots:

And why is Ace still mostly grey?

Perhaps because blue jays actually have a decent portion of their bodies in gray coloring.

EDIT: sorry for the massive picture, guys.

Speaking of Screech. Has any other team (any sport) aged their mascot the way the Nationals did with Screech?

Mike Cameron announced his retirement instead of camping with the Nats. That brings the CF competition/platoon down to Rick Ankiel, Roger Bernadina, and Jason Werth (but only if Bryce Harper is ready to go at the start of the season).

Odd. I'd have thought the Red Sox fans would not have taken kindly to a mascot from Sesame Street.

Also, why does DJ Kitty appear to be in a dorm lounge?

I think you answered your own question.

Cork Gaines claims the "housewives and college co-eds" love DJ Kitty

It's for the kids. Kid like Sesame Street. I don't care either way whether or not the Sox have one.

PROTIP: Where is Sesame Street set?

New York, I guess? It's been years since I watched, man.

Good tip to all young ispriring ballplayers:

Don't have your cellphone on during a press conference.

Albert Pujols got fined for that goof.

Yankees finally sign Ibanez for 1.1m plus incentives (can make up to 4m) ... just dont know why they had to "clear room" for him by trading Burnett, if it was only 1.1m that should be affordable even with AJ. Also sounds like they will sign Chavez soon.

In other random signing news. Manny Ramirez will sign with the A's for 500k. Still has to sit out 50 games. Moneyball at its finest.

I'm sure that's going to really hurt his account balance. I mean, he's barely getting by as it is now.

I'll not be too biased about this, but these are my award winners

AL MVP: Evan Longoria- The reason is that Albert and Prince have an elite supporting cast; Prince with Miguel Cabrera and Albert with Vernon Wells and Trumbo. Evan last year, especially in September, was basically carring his team to the postseason. If he has a breakout season and takes his team to the postseason, he will win the MVP.

AL Cy Young: Justin Verlander- Same as Evan, but for pitchers.

AL Rookie of the Year: Matt Moore- I believe that he will have an amazing season with 18 wins and an ERA less than 3.00. If he wins this year, the Rays wiil have two straight rookie of the year winners (Hellickson- 2011).

NL MVP: Joey Votto- With Prince and Albert gone, this makes it easier for Joey to win the award. Also, he faces the same problem with Evan Longoria with the lineup. I think he will destroy NL Central pitching this year.

NL Cy Young: Roy Halladay- Albert and Prince's disapperance will make it easier for Roy to strike out batters.

NL Rookie of the Year: Bryce Harper- He would win it, if he is on the starting lineup.
