After a thrilling Super Bowl that saw the Philadelphia Eagles take down the mighty New England Patriots, we can fully turn our attention to baseball season.

For most baseball fans, the end of the Super Bowl signals the beginning of baseball season. I know there are still other sports going on, but who really cares.

In the NBA nothing matters until the eighth round of the playoffs, and college basketball is only exciting for a couple of weeks in March.

But with pitchers and catchers just a couple of weeks away, and spring training games shortly after, it’s baseball season!

This year is different than most though as there are still over 100 free agents out there looking for jobs.

More from Around the Foghorn

This February is shaping up to be one of the most exciting ones we’ve ever seen. At some point you have to figure these guys are going to sign — even if they have to take a shorter deal.

And believe, San Francisco Giants have to be hoping some of these players take shorter deals. If that’s the case, then all bets are off. I think at that point you see the Giants blow past the luxury tax threshold and go win a championship.

But even if these free agents continue to hold out, that will be big news throughout spring training.

For the Giants, spring training will be truly interesting with several newcomers, and guys competing for time in the outfield and in the starting rotation.

There will be plenty of baseball to talk about in the upcoming weeks, and I can’t wait.

Bust out the old baseball movies and get ready for the upcoming season. The time is almost here when we can smell the freshly cut grass, hear the crack of the bat, and enjoy a game that puts us in a better place for three ours of our day — or if Rob Manfred gets his way, 2:50 or less.

It’s baseball season!
