I love the spring. There are so many signs that let you know that spring is here: the smell of freshly cut grass traveling through the warm air, birds chirping in a melodic fashion and of course the up to every day news that comes from MLB Spring Training!
Every baseball fan loves the spring because baseball has arrived. Your favorite team has woken up from its winter slumber and has emerged with the vigor of a busy bee. Every new baseball seasons brings back some old friends, introduces some new faces, and rekindles the dream World Series glory.
I for one am excited to see the Boston Red Sox come out of the gate with guns a’ blazing. After a lackluster 2010 season filled with injuries from stars Dustin Pedroia and Kevin Youkilis, the Sox made some off-season moves that added Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez to cover the departure of Adrian Beltre and a few others. Every year, the Sox get locked and loaded with talent to compete with the New York Yankees and those feisty Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East. Do I think that the Sox have enough to get at least a Wild Card Berth? You bet but the real goal is to get the players healthy and ready for 162 games and beyond and I think that the team will prepared for the grueling season.
Now that you have read me rambling on about the Sox, what teams are you rooting for this season?
