You hear that?
It's the sound of basballs popping into leather gloves. And it's glorious.

La Velle wrote last night that Scott Baker, Nick Blackburn, Joe Nathan, Carl Pavano, Matt Guerrier, Kevin Slowey, Brian Duensing, Pat Neshek, Jon Rauch and Jesse Crain all arrived early to camp. J.J. Hardy (minus some Joe Mauer bromance this weekend), Brendan Harris, Matt Tolbert, Michael Cuddyer and Orlando Hudson have already reported as well.
