MLB pictures have arrived, as teams start getting ready for Spring Training. There's only so much you can do with a bat or a ball in a still photo, and most of the photos are monotonous and involve players smiling directly into a camera while swinging a bat or holding a ball. Occasionally, though, things get wacky. Here are some notable photos that caught our eye looking through the hundreds of shots.

#1 Jeff Banister, Texas Rangers

"Hmm, something doesn't seem quite right. Josh, can you get us that bat with barbed wire wrapped around it? … Perfect."

Google removes ‘view image’ button from search results to make pics harder to steal

  Google removes ‘view image’ button from search results to make pics harder to steal Google is making a change to image search today that sounds small but will have a big impact: it’s removing the “view image” button that appeared when you clicked on a picture, which allowed you to open the image alone. The change is essentially meant to frustrate users. Google has long been under fire from photographers and publishers who felt that image search allowed people to steal their pictures, and the removal of the view image button is one of many changes being made in response. A deal to show copyright information and improve attribution of Getty photos was announced last week and included these changes.

#2 Tim Tebow, New York Mets

"Tim, show us the face you would make if the approaching manager came toward you with a barbed wire bat."

This is your reminder that Tim Tebow got to take photos with the major league club and will probably get a chance to make a publicity appearance in Shea at some point.

#3 Matt Purke, New York Mets

"Matt, any thoughts on Tim Tebow making the major league roster and being your teammate?"

#4 Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig, Los Angeles Dodgers

Taking pictures the right way. Old school. No bat flips here.

#5 Homer Bailey, Cincinnati Reds

The Reds' photographer had broader statements to make about the human condition by going black and white. Something about the futility of life and the never-ending cycle of disappointment. Seems like a good way to start another season in Cincinnati.

Microsoft’s latest app moves photos from phones to PCs over WiFi

  Microsoft’s latest app moves photos from phones to PCs over WiFi Microsoft Garage makes all kinds of mobile apps for iOS and Android. Some, like the Hub keyboard for iPhone, are experiments; others, like the News Pro app, are a bit more long-term. According to Microsoft, when its Photos app was redesigned in 2017, the product team headed out to various US and European classrooms to see how teachers were incorporating videos and images into their curriculum, and to encourage them to use the app. The biggest issue wasn't the app itself, the team found, but the hassle of getting media from smartphones to classroom PCs.

MLB Photo Day has once again come and gone. A non-scientific survey of the resulting images suggests there’s an increase in bespectacled pitchers, which is great because they look that much funnier giving up a long home run. Here are some of the best photos to hit the wires in recent days .

Prepared to be dazzled by these mind blowing pictures and facts. Submitted each day - the craziest and most interesting stuff on the web. A look at some kick ass swords of history ( 10 Photos ). Good gawd almighty these are some killer wrestling finishers!!!

#6 Steve Buechele, Texas Rangers

I'll say this: the Rangers coaches really brought it this year. I really want to know what Buechele's inspiration was as he got into this method acting role of staring deep into his hat.

#7 Elvis Andrus, Texas Rangers

Everything is better with a handful of Blow Pops.

#8 Jon Lester, Chicago Cubs

Several players tossed balls during their photo ops. But Jon Lester nailed this attempt by getting the ball to stop right next to his face. He also somehow managed it so that the ball is showing more emotion.

#9 Avisail Garcia, Chicago White Sox

Avisail broke out the ape mask for his photos. Let's hope this makes it to a baseball card.

#10 Daniel Mengden, Oakland Athletics
