Those Three Little Words

Pitchers and catchers.

As in pitchers and catchers reported to Spring Training yesterday for a lot of teams, including my NY Yankees.  For a lot of us baseball fans, that date is the most important date of the year.  The day that baseball starts again.  For those of you who aren't baseball fans?  Well, you just don't understand.

As for me, this awful winter is finally over and Spring is just around the corner.  It helped that the temperature climbed above 50F for the first time in forever yesterday.  Supposed to stay that way all week too.  I am stoked beyond being stoked.

Baseball.  Sigh.

It's back.

And for you gardeners here in the northern latitudes, those seeds you need to start indoors so they can be planted after the last frost - should be started this week!!

RW - good to know! Although it's still getting down below freezing at night, and probably will for a while. Around here at least.

Doggie - Shhh...not in front of RW!

Paticus - I love to watch the Mets fail! This should be a good year for that.

is THAT why you are always asking me to catch for you?

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - I was being coy...

Paticus said...

No chance, Earl! Ollie Perez has announced that he intends to be a starting pitcher this year, so ALL the Mets problems are now solved. :)

B.E. Earl said...

Paticus - well, with Ollie how could you go wrong? The Mets starting rotation could feature Chris Young AND Chris Capuano to begin the year. Two guys who can't seem to stay healthy. And when one of those guys gets hurt, that's when Ollie strikes! Or throws a wild pitch...something like that.

GO REDS!

That's all I ever have to say about baseball. Although I did root for the Yankees back when Andy Pettitte (or however you spell it) played for them. He won me quite a bit of money sometime in the 90's. :)

Sybil - you spelled it correctly. And he just retired. Too bad, so sad.
