Well, wouldn't you know it.
Some of the first news out of Arizona is about injury.
Jake Arrieta is the possible back of the rotation guy who we're all interested in 'cause he was the Oriole's opening day starter a couple years ago and was the main guy in the Scott Feldman trade (along with Pedro Strop).
Word is he's being "slowed down" by the Cubs because of some shoulder tightness he experienced this winter.
Just yesterday I was so happy with the, you know.. pitchers and catchers reporting and spring is coming and it's the time to however misguidedly dream and all that.
But I walked into my office and ohhhhhhh myyyyyyy.
The Girl Scouts had come to save the frickin' day.
A breathtaking box of Samoas, the cookies I'd ordered maybe a month ago and totally forgot about, sitting there on my desk.
Far and away the greatest Girl Scout cookie of all time (feel free to argue if you want if you want to be doltish).
Fresh out of the box, crispy cookie with the soft caramel chunky coconut coating and considerable dark chocolate drizzle.
I could get all worked up about shoulder tightness but I choose Samoa Euphoria instead.
Sorry Jake, if you were here I'd offer you one.
