Buy Me Some Peanuts and Crackerjack!

A nice balmy 55ish degree day. Clear, beautiful skies. That is baseball weather baby! Fittingly too, because pitchers and catchers reported to their spring training facilities today and not a moment too soon! My interest level in basketball was starting to creep past "passing interest". (how about that one? Period outside the quotes for a non-title, right?)

Quick primer for all you baseball lack-of-enthusiasts:

The Red Sox are coming off their first title in 86 years. (Curt Schilling is a schmuck)

The Yankees are coming off the worst choke in major North American sports history. (Let's go Yankees!)

Mike Scioscia is coming off about the worst managerial decision a guy can make in the playoffs. (Washburn against Ortiz? Come on)

No one is talking about Mike Scioscia's decision at all. (Except I did, for some reason)

And everyone in the world does steroids. (Even David Eckstein)

And as always, another baseball season, another attempt by Ken Griffey Jr. to come back from a major injury!

Actually, Geoff, according to one website I found, "In the United States, periods and commas go inside quotation marks regardless of logic."
