Get into spring training mood with Phillies workout set to steel drums (Video)

As The 700 Level points out, the best part of this video might be the glimpse we get of Carlos Ruiz wearing a "Fake Tough" T-shirt, which references the Cole Hamels diatribe Nationals GM Mike Rizzo made last year after Hamels admitted he hit Bryce Harper on purpose. Ah, you know what it all means: Baseball is back!

And this video is great to chillax with, too. Listen to the steel drum rhythms reminiscent of Jimmy Buffett; Watch infielders Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins taking grounders in shorts; Brace yourself from Roy Halladay breaking faces doing a bullpen; Admire closer Jonathan Papelbon weening himself off anti-inflammatories.

Phillies pitchers and catchers aren't required to report to Clearwater, Fla. until Wednesday. But with the weather so nice and the music just right, why not get a little bit of a head start?

Pitchers and catchers are reporting!
