Spring training is underway and   there has been a flurry of hot stove moves the last three weeks. The   regular season will begin Thursday, April 7. Exactly one week away. <br>Throughout the season the CBS Sports <a href="/mlb" data-is-autolink="true">MLB</a>                                   experts      will   bring you a weekly   Batting Around roundtable           breaking           down pretty       much   anything. The  latest   news, a                historical           question,         thoughts      about       the   future of              baseball, all   sorts    of         stuff. <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/batting-around-what-was-the-most-surprising-mlb-free-agent-signing-of-the-post-lockout-hot-stove/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Last week we debated the most surprising offseason move</a>. This week we're going to discuss reunions want to see a la <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/players/playerpage/390851/zack-greinke">Zack Greinke</a> and <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/players/playerpage/223571/albert-pujols">Albert Pujols</a>. <br><strong>R.J. Anderson:</strong> <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/players/playerpage/1114751/evan-longoria">Evan Longoria</a>, <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/teams/TB/tampa-bay-rays/">Rays</a>. Did you know that Longoria ranks sixth among  active position players in Wins Above Replacement? What about that he'll  turn 37 shortly after this season? He's had a fantastic career, but  it's probably coming to an end sooner than later. The Rays fan base  seldom gets to enjoy the twilight of their best players' careers;  Longoria coming back and retiring after one more ride in St. Petersburg  would be a fun change of pace.    <br><strong>Matt Snyder:</strong> <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/players/playerpage/530362/justin-verlander">Justin Verlander</a>, <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/teams/DET/detroit-tigers/">Tigers</a>. The Tigers took Verlander second overall in  2004 and he was winning the Rookie of the Year as part of the AL champs  in 2006. He also won a Cy Young and MVP in his 13 years in Detroit.  From 2011-14, the Tigers won four straight AL Central titles and took  the 2012 pennant, but they never won the World Series. From a certain  point of view, it felt wrong seeing Verlander win the 2017 World Series  with the <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/teams/HOU/houston-astros/">Astros</a> after he'd only been there a few months. He's currently  on a one-year deal with a player option for 2023 while the Tigers are  looking to emerge as contenders from a rebuild. He's 39 and this will be  his first year back from Tommy John surgery. It's possible either 2023  or 2024 line up for Verlander to get one last run with a contending  Tigers team, should he want that chance. That would be fun. <br><strong>Dayn Perry:</strong> <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/players/playerpage/1103290/andrew-mccutchen">Andrew McCutchen</a>, <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/teams/PIT/pittsburgh-pirates/">Pirates</a>. While I hesitate to send McCutchen back to  perhaps the worst team owner in sports, it would be a thrill for  Pirates fans, who could use a thrill these days. Cutch was a Pirates  lifer from the time they drafted him with the No. 11 overall pick in  2005 until they traded him away in January of 2018. Along the way, he  put together one of the great peaks in franchise history. Across a  five-year span from 2011-15, McCutchen won an MVP, finished in the top  of five of the balloting on three other occasions, made the All-Star  team every year, and tallied a WAR of 31.5. At the time, he appeared to  be on a Hall of Fame track. The Pirates probably won't contend any time  soon, but it would be cool to see the immensely popular McCutchen back  in Pittsburgh for a farewell tour.  <br><strong>Mike Axisa:</strong> McCutchen was going to be my pick before Dayn beat me to him. That's what I get for being last to reply to the email. Anyway, there are some great "<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efHCdKb5UWc" target="_blank" rel="noopener">some men just want to watch the world burn</a>" options here (<a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/players/playerpage/1765813/bryce-harper">Bryce Harper</a> and the <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/teams/WAS/washington-nationals/">Nationals</a>, <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/players/playerpage/532997/robinson-cano">Robinson Canó</a> and the <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/teams/NYY/new-york-yankees/">Yankees</a>), but I'll go with <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/players/playerpage/1619074/madison-bumgarner">Madison Bumgarner</a> and the <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/teams/SF/san-francisco-giants/">Giants</a>. He's a postseason legend and fans always welcome those guys back with open arms. Plus with the way things go for San Francisco this days, Bumgarner would probably return to the Giants and throw 195 innings with a 3.10 ERA. He's my pick. <br>© 2004-2022 CBS Interactive.
