Just seven days until we can say those four magical words

We’re getting close.

You can now justifiably buy those fantasy baseball magazines without any guilt–as if there was ever any to begin with. Pretty soon we’ll be talking Grapefruits and Cactus. And how far the daily Spring Training bombs traveled (it’s always impossible to tell in those Spring parks).

And the Red Sox or Twins will scrimmage Division 3 Penn State Altoona and play guys who will be bagging groceries in a few weeks and lose and it will be a story for a few hours.

And we’ll kick things off with a good old fashioned Spring Training story from yesteryear–for traditions sake.
