The smell of the grass. The smack of ball into mitt. The crack of the bat. All signs that the baseball season is near. The 2013 season opens Sunday night when the Texas Rangers travel to Houston to face the now-American League Astros.

This should prove to be an interesting season in the AL East, where the Red Sox and Yankees could struggle. Toronto made some major off-season moves, the Orioles continue to develop and the Tampa Bay Rays have gone from also-rans to perennial contenders.

Our panel of baseball experts share their thoughts on the new season as Spring Training winds to a close.

Also on the program, VPR's Ross Sneyd provides analysis on the moves made at the State House this week.
