Pitchers & Catchers Report Today!

Today is the day we have all been waiting for.  Dodger Pitchers and Catchers are to report to Camelback Ranch for Spring Training today.

Per Ken Gurnick at MLB.com:
On Tuesday, the excitement shifts to Arizona, where Dodgers pitchers -- plenty of them -- and catchers report to Spring Training.

The first battery workout at Camelback Ranch-Glendale will be Wednesday. Position players report Friday, with the first full-squad workout scheduled for Saturday.

"Yes, if everything goes right we could be better than anyone," club president Stan Kasten told MLB Network Radio. "But we have question marks like every team has question marks. We have to see if we can avoid injuries. Still, it's very exciting that we can begin the season thinking we really do have a chance, for real. You don't have to imagine a lot of things happening for it to result in a postseason team, if we can get some breaks to go our way."
I can't wait to see how things develop. 

For those folks heading out to Arizona to enjoy some Spring Baseball and to hunt down some Dodgers for autographs, I put together a list of Dodger players with their jersey numbers to help you out.  The list isn't entirely complete, but it should provide a good starting point.
