The thermostat may not say so, but it’s time for spring baseball. (Darron Cummings / AP)

In Atlanta, the view from your window is dreary and miserable. A threat of snow and freezing temperatures is no way to welcome in the boys of summer.

Braves players have begun arrival in central Florida. Heck, they’ve arrived half a nation away in Arizona, too.

Pitchers and catchers will hold their first workouts Saturday at the Braves’ training facility at Disney World in Lake Buena Vista. And it’s a good thing, because from the looks of the thermostat down there, it’s not baseball weather just yet.

To put in perspective, this is Atlanta’s forecast. Ugh.

The first full-squad session is Feb. 26. Let’s hope for warmer weather everywhere by then.
