SPRING TRAINING – HERE WE GO AGAIN

February 13th, 2011 · No Comments · sports

Well, we didn’t win it last year. And to be sure that stinks.

But every year – can you think of any team you’d rather be (odds wise) than the New York Yankees?

Tut tut! I know some of you will say The Philadelphia Phillies who truly have taken over the mantel of trying to buy themselves another championship. And the Red Sox? Well, they certainly added some big bats to their line-up but the record clearly shows that the Yanks are truly the only team you can consider a “shoe in” to be in the playoffs. At least in the last 15 plus years.

So pitchers and catchers are here. And not a moment too soon. I don’t know what it is about football but I’m always happy when it’s over. Not so with baseball as I’m always ready to get the new season underway. Probably one big reason is because my son Nodari absolutely loves baseball. Now if he could just avoid getting himself grounded long enough to get to the schoolyard we might be able to work on his formidable skills. He likes (and is good at) kicking field goals too.

But pitchers and catchers are here. And while I will be at the school yard playing Stickball, forgetting my age and putting my body through punishment it doesn’t deserve, I make sure there is plenty of time left for the other sweet things in life….

like Yankee Baseball.

Here’s an interesting site I found called Beat of The Bronx.
