Finally, pitchers and catchers report - SPRING IS HERE!
Then, we go to a movie last night, come out and there's snow everywhere.
But it's only physical, right?
Because up in my head I can hear bats cracking and gloves popping and beer vendors yelling and a snow blower blowing...
Dammit, I'm back here again.
Oh well, if you've been paying attention this off-season, the Cubs made a zillion moves mostly to get more left-handed while the rest of the Central did nothing.
Read Jason Stark.
He says the 3 most unimproved teams in the NL are Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Milwaukee.
Hard to disagree there.
We have alot to look forward to, alot of new players to watch, and the same big monkey perched on the big shoulders of the City of Big Shoulders.
Of course there are alot of concerns, but we can talk about that another day.
For today, I choose number 3 above.
Just, you know, after I get the snow off the steps.
ps: Recently, I've seen "Slumdog Millionaire", "Revolutionary Road", "The Wrestler", "Gran Torino", "Benjamin Button", and "Milk" - it's possibly the best back to back string of movies I've ever seen.
And last night we tried for Frost Nixon but the time didn't work out so we saw "Taken" with Liam Neeson.
So the streak comes to an end.
What a giant turd.
