I know I should be writing about Ash Wednesday today, but I'm not. Instead I am happy to inform you that pitchers and catchers report today! Let the defense of the title begin!
Now, I personally like the winter. I like the cold and the snow, but man do I miss baseball. But today, today is different. Because today means that real genuine baseball is right around the corner. So come on April 4th I'm waiting for you.
Although theologically maybe this is important. Pitchers and catchers report on Ash Wednesday and opening day is Easter Sunday. Coincidence?
