The winter has taken its toll even on those of us living in paradise. A series of unexpected events and a new book (yes, Reamus always seems to be writing a new book ) has kept me from doing anything in this space. I still stalk the blogs and enjoy reading as many as I can.
You may note that I have had to add moderation and bar anonymous posts. I have been hit by a growing number of bogus bloggers and websites that do not seem to be as they appear. Wish we could all just get along.
Meanwhile, "Truck Day" has occurred for all major league teams and the first players will report today. My annual pilgrimage will occur in late March this year. I am looking forward to the rites of spring, ignoring all comments about drug use and I will try enjoy the game I have loved all these years for what it is:Grown men playing with sticks and balls they should have put down when they reached their twenties. If they enhance their performances somehow, that's their problem and will have to deal with it if they ever grow up.
As always it will be fun to watch the very good, the good enough and the ones headed for obscurity under the warm Arizona sun.
