It's February today. That means that the start of spring training is a little more than a week away for most teams and that regular season games will be played....gulp...next month.

And yet, Manny Machado and Bryce Harper remain unsigned. So, too, is Craig Kimbrel.

That would have seemed impossible way back in November when free agency officially began. And yet Kimbrel sits and waits.

The man with the best strikeout-to-walk ratio and lowest batting average against ever for a closer can't find a job.
