Spring Training Games on MLB.TV This Weekend
As I threatened I would yesterday, I’m once again printing this weekend’s MLB.TV schedule.

Right here, specifically, is where I’m reprinting it:

Sat, Mar 3
1:05 PM New York Yankees vs Philadelphia Phillies
7:05 PM Boston College Eagles vs Boston Red Sox

Sun, Mar 4
1:05 PM Houston Astros vs Washington Nationals
1:05 PM Philadelphia Phillies vs New York Yankees
1:35 PM Minnesota Twins (ss) vs Boston Red Sox

Here are some notes on that sort of thing:

• Nationals manager Davey Johnson has indicated that Bryce Harper will play quite a bit this spring, reports MLB.com’s Bill Ladson — suggesting that he could very well play on Sunday, is what I mean to say.

• Click here to read some assorted notes (at NotGraphs) regarding MLB.TV for 2012.

• A complete list of all spring training games available on MLB.TV can be found here.

Three Notable College Series
Friday represents the beginning of the third weekend of collegiate baseball.

Below are three notable weekend series. For each entry, I’ve provided the broadcast times (ET) for the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday games, respectively. All games are available streaming on CBS Sports ULive — about which I recently wrote a review at NotGraphs — unless otherwise noted. As usual, Aaron Fitt’s weekend preview at Baseball America is both thorough and free of charge.

(1) Florida at (12) Miami: 7:00pm, 7:00pm, N/A
Preseason favorites Florida are still ranked No. 1 overall, with a record of 7-1 so far. Outfielder Preston Tucker has been absurdly productive so far, putting up this line: 31 AB, 5 HR, 2 BB, 2 K. Sunday starter, left-handed junior Brian Johnson, also gets regular at-bats at DH. Miami enters the weekend undefeated, having played six of their eight games against Rutgers and Albany. Senior Rony Rodriguez has struggled (31 AB, 0 BB, 14 K), but starters Eric Erickson and Eric Whaley have combined for a 29:1 K:BB in 25.0 innings over four starts.

(3) South Carolina vs. (15) Clemson: N/A, 2:00pm, N/A
Fourth-year junior Matt Price’s conversion to starter from closer has been very successful so far. Here’s his line so far: 10.0 IP, 15 K, 4 BB. He’ll start the televised Saturday game.

Maine at (13) Florida State: 4:00pm, 2:00pm, N/A
Mostly, I just want to see center fielder James Ramsey a little. He entered the season as Baseball America’s No. 1 senior prospect. Here’s his line so far: 19 AB, 3 HR, 13 BB, 2 HBP, 2 K.

Video: South Carolina Right-Hander Matt Price
Here’s video from a South Carolina-Clemson game last season. This Saturday’s starter Matt Price (#22) can be seen pitching the last two innings (beginning around the 3:17 mark).

Carson Cistulli has published a book of aphorisms called Spirited Ejaculations of a New Enthusiast.
