The snow outside is melting away. It's currently about 50 degrees outside. There's the smell of spring in the air, even though the calendar says there's about 3 weeks of winter left.
Let's play ball.
The Mets open their spring training schedule today, with a game on TV on SportsNet New York against the AL champion Detroit Tigers this afternoon at Port St. Lucie. And tonight, Curt Schilling takes the mound against the Minnesota Twins at 7 in Ft. Myers on NESN.
I wish I could be there in person, but the TV will have to do.
At least the weather here in New York is cooperating. It makes bringing on the baseball season all the more enjoyable.
33 days and counting until Opening Day. Let's go.
