On this weekend otherwise devoted to the pigskin (though not so much in this house), our thoughts turn to the green pastures of the mind. Pitchers and catchers report soon. A few things we are (and are not) looking forward to, come opening day.
In Our Mind’s Eye
-Derek Jeter’s first smack to the opposite field
-Joe Torre drinking his green tea on the bench….
-Next to Donnie Baseball
-Mo’s canter in from the pen across that great green expanse
-Wang’s slumpy walk off the mound after another 6-4-3 DP
-Carl Pavano, St. Louis Cardinal
-Take your base, Mr. Abreu
-Robi: first-pitch double off the wall
-Jorge’s quiet excellence
-Yanks vs. Sox. Obviously.
Visions We Could Do Without
-Bonds passes Aaron
-The eye rolling after A-Rod’s first K with men on
-_____will be on the DL for __ weeks with a ____
-Centerstage: Stump Merrill
