  • MLB’s free agency has unfolded in bizarre fashion, with some of the top players getting signed late in the offseason or not at all.

  • While accusations of collusion swirl, no one is quite sure what to make of the situation.

About 30 disgruntled free agents trekked to Bradenton, Florida, this week for an unusual spring training camp.
