Weather Conditions: Tampa area

Key Additions: DH Frank Thomas, SS Royce Clayton, RHP Tomo Ohka, RHP John Thomson, C Sal Fasano, OF Matt Stairs, RHP Victor Zambrano.
Key Losses: LHP Ted Lilly, C Bengie Molina, OF Frank Catalanotto, RHP Justin Speier.
Spring Questions: Will the Big Hurt revert to his nickname after a healthy walk year in Oakland? ... Does Clayton have enough left at 37 to be a playoff-caliber shortstop? ... Can CF Vernon Wells possibly do enough to justify the seven-year, $126 million extension he signed over the winter?
Phenom Watch: LF Adam Lind has a sweet lefty stroke and could push incumbent Reed Johnson for playing time.
