Writes of Spring

8 Mar

MLB Spring Training is its own season.

Whether you are in front of a computer or watching from the stands, the joys come through: silence (no over-amped stadium exhortations), the sight of managers and coaches seated on folding chairs, and lengthy dugout interviews with players and managers touting how good their pitching, hitting and defense look–now.

It’s also the best time to play Minor League Bingo: the higher the number on the player’s back, the more likely he’ll be back at AA or AAA.  98? Yup.  82?  Yup. 73? Yup.  They may make it to the Show someday, but not on Opening Day.
