08:12 AM ET 02.18 | Bruce Rondon didn't put the hammer down, but he did make a statement of sorts. [Rondon] passed his first minor test of spring training Sunday afternoon in his quest to become the Tigers' closer. Throwing against batters for the first time, facing his first dose of pressure, Rondon didn't appear nervous. He didn't look overwhelmed. He stayed around the strike zone and didn't freak out. Which is good news for the Tigers. If Rondon would have failed this first step -- which was nothing but a baby step -- then the Tigers would have been in serious trouble. ... Rondon didn't throw his hardest. He said he was throwing at about 90 miles per hour, about 10 miles below his cruising speed.

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.
