08:11 AM ET 02.18 | In the crowded house that is the catcher position in Fort Myers, one name has stepped up quickly. It hasn't taken David Ross long to take control behind the plate. The catcher, who was signed to a two-year deal over the winter, was firm and vocal while catching Jon Lester Sunday, offering tips on mechanics during the outing, then huddling with Lester to go over some issues after the outing. "He's an encouraging catcher," said Farrell. "Just talking to guys who have thrown to him, there's been such positive feedback on the interactions that they've had, either after a bullpen or while they're actually throwing a pen and David's comments in between pitches. He encourages every guy that he catches. I think pitchers feel that connection."

Attention Dirty Little Fantasy League Team Owners:

The site is paid for and I've sent PayPal requests for league dues to the email addresses you have listed on the CBS site.

I don't have time to chase you folks down for payment this year so I'm doing things a little differently. If payment hasn't been recieved by the end of the day on Sunday, February 24th, your spot will be offered to everyone on the waiting list and the first person to pay gets it.

If you see or have any contact with any of the other team owners, please make sure they're aware of this.

Thanks.

Old moose antlers. He's going to make PED's from them and sell them to the Alabama football team. He'll clean up.

Thanks, Cat.

My business took an unexpected turn last September and I just haven't had the time for much besides my work and family.
