Our friend Tom Nichols of the Dayton Dragons has written an 8-part preview for their 2015 season. The first segment, which was about the Dragons starting pitchers, went up today. Here’s the introduction:

On Thursday, March 5, Minor League camp for the Cincinnati Reds in Goodyear, Arizona will come alive when pitchers and catchers report. All remaining position players are due on March 11. Players will be assigned to workout groups and the first Dayton Dragons spring training game is set for March 18 against the White Sox affiliate, the Kannapolis Intimidators. Rosters will be selected for each of the Reds four full-season affiliates (Louisville, Pensacola, Daytona, and Dayton) on April 5 and the Dragons players will arrive at Dayton International Airport on that date. The Dragons first Midwest League game of 2015 is April 9 in Grand Rapids, Michigan against the West Michigan Whitecaps, the affiliates of the Detroit Tigers. Opening day for the Dragons is Sunday, April 12 at 4:00 p.m. against the South Bend Cubs, affiliates of the Chicago Cubs, at Fifth Third Field.
