Those of you who don't live in the Greater Boston area probably don't know why Monday is such a special day. No, it's not just President's Day. It isn't the biggest day of the year to purchase furniture and cars, although that is important, too. No, it's the starting of Spring Training. I am so excited I can't stand it. I've been literally on pins and needles all week waiting for the first reports. I understand Trot Nixon is already in Florida. Tickets are already on sale for the preseason games. In only a couple of months, baseball will be officially underway and I'll be obsessed until October.
I love this time of year. It's all good, things to look forward to. Theo's back, the front office seems to have calmed down, we have a relatively decent pitching staff, and although we're maybe lacking on some infield talent, I'm confident that we're going to have a good year. Everyone thought that after Johnny Demon left to the evil empire that this upcoming season would be at best a rebuilding year. But Manny is still with us, David Ortiz is looking fine, Curt Shilling has finally healed, Bronson Arroyo is looking mighty adorable, it's looking to be a great year.
