…report tomorrow for the Yankees and Nationals. Thursday the Yahoo Fantasy League arrives. The baseball magazines have hit the news stands. The New York Mets and the Sea Otters [my entry] will once again consume my thinking. Will Pedro be back by the AllStar Game? Who will be the best ‘sleeper pick’ in the draft? [Last year Matt Holliday and Garrett Atkins led me to a third place finish.] It may be 18 degrees in Fargo and Buffalo, but sweet spring has arrived. For a while, no news will be good news. Tales of sprains, muscle pulls, broken knees, Tommy John surgery, failed comebacks, and holdouts will fill our morning fishwraps. Exhibition games start March 1st.
As the boys from Liverpool once sung, “…here comes the sun.”
