And none too soon. After four months, pitchers and catchers and infielders and outfielders have all (or almost all–wherefor art thou Pedro?) reported to their respective camps, ready to begin anew the annual chase.
We’ve been waiting for this day ever since Jorge Posada lifted Josh Beckett’s final pitch to left and those upstart Floridians flooded onto our hallowed ground. (We were there, it was painful.) There’s been plenty to talk about ever since. A-Rod. Schilling. Balco. Rose. Selig. The Boss and Mr. Henry. Of course these things will still be on our minds–and in our posts–as time tracks on, but at least now we’ll actually have some action on the field to think about.
