For those of us who believe baseball is the only game, this is a pretty tough time of year. We are told that “pitchers and catchers have reported” in early February, and that “position players have arrived” soon after. Maybe we get a hit of oxygen in the form of a picture of John Lackey looking decidedly less fat but decidedly still douchey. But we are still weeks away from a game where the regulars will take one AB and then sit down for the next six innings, a month away from games where the regulars play…well, regularly, and a month and a half from the games that count. As a fan of the WBC , I at least have the luxury of watching “meaningful” baseball in the near future (if I can find a way to do this without cable, help me internet/MLB), but even for a person like me, that’s not REALLY baseball.
I note that krueg is stoked by the minimal baseball content we have been given this 2013 pre-season, but he also has hockey to keep him warm. How are you doing?
