Sprung Training

Russell Martin greets fans on the first official day of spring training.

Jason Schmidt throws. Really.

Spring training has sprung! has photos and video and Yahoo! Sports has photos. Tony Jackson and Diamond Leung have updates. The LA Times has a nifty travel guide to Camelback Ranch ("Swing fever: Dodgers make Phoenix home to spring training") and has its own Camelback Ranch page. But Jackson comes up with the quote of the day:

Martin seemed noticeably more relaxed before, during and after the workout. When reporters asked him at one point what caused some slight discomfort he is feeling in his left foot - he underwent an MRI on Friday that came back negative - Martin joked that he might have hurt himself in the bedroom.

"Kama Sutra Position 68," he said.
