#OneWeek

Sox Love

Sox LoveOne more week, that’s it.  One more week until the season officially starts, and to say that I can’t wait is an understatement.  I’ve done my waiting, six long months of waiting!  I’m really excited for the season to start, and to be able to watch baseball pretty much every day again.  New England/Massachusetts winters are long, and the start of baseball is the light at the end of the tunnel.  While I have enjoyed watching spring training games, they are nothing compared to regular season games.    Regular season games have late season implications.  Speaking of seasons, this one will be different, much different.  This is the first season without Big Papi, but knowing what I know about the Sox, they’ll adjust and be just fine.  I have high hopes for this season, and I can’t wait to see what the season brings.

#WBC

Sox Love

Sox LoveI know there are mixed feelings about the World Baseball Classic (WBC), baseball’s equivalent to FIFA, especially in regards to MLB players leaving Spring Training early. But honestly, I love the World Baseball Classic for a few reasons. The first reason is because I really enjoy watching the international teams and players. Second, I love that Major League players get to represent their countries. Third, I love the fact that there’s baseball on almost all day every day. I think that the WBC is great for promoting baseball on a more international level, which I don’t think it’s promoted enough internationally. I wish international baseball got more attention, like soccer (football) does, because it certainly deserves it.  I can’t wait to see how this year’s WBC unfolds.

#OnPaper

Sox Love

…Means nothing, it really doesn’t.  You can have a team that looks wicked good on paper, but they play like crap.  For instance, there have been times when the Sox have looked really good on paper, but it didn’t translate onto the field.  Right now, the Sox look wicked good on paper, but it’s anybody’s guess as to how that will translate onto the field.  For me, watching spring training games I can make educated guesses as to how the team will look during the regular season, and this doesn’t take into account the possible injuries and necessary roster adjustments to field the team that has the best chance to win.  This is baseball, and it is a rarity that teams perform the way they look on paper.

#TruckDay

Sox Love

If you’re a Red Sox fan, then you should know all about Truck Day.  For me, Truck Day is the first day of spring.  It always has been.  If you don’t know what Truck Day is, it’s the day when the equipment truck leaves Fenway for Fort Myers.  This is the first year that I’ve actually been able to go and believe me I have always wanted to go.  Being there is so much different than watching everything on TV.  Watching it on TV, you don’t really get to experience the experience of being there.  Being there, I really saw what an operation it is.  It was wicked awesome to see all the boxes stacked up and loaded onto the truck before it left Fenway.  I got to Fenway around 9:15 and the truck didn’t leave until noonish.

Every year the truck has a theme, this year the theme was…

If Miami Wins…

If by chance Miami wins the championship, will the criticism of Lebron James stop or will it continue?  In my honesty opinion, it is too difficult to tell.  I feel that no matter the circumstances people will still be critical of him.  People will always be critical of his attitude, which sometimes comes across as …
