Today is a great milestone in the offseason as the season is approaching faster than John Lackey is declining. Today is Truck Day, which I'm pretty sure is not as big a deal as Red Sox fans make it out to be. In case you don't know, it is when the truck carrying all the Red Sox' equipment heads from Fenway Park down to Fort Myers where the Red Sox play Spring Training. The season truly is rapidly approaching though, as pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training on February 19th, the Red Sox play their first spring training game (as usual, a double-header against Boston College and Northeastern University) on March 3rd, and on April 5th, the Red Sox will gather in Comerica Park, Detroit to start the 2012 season. I'm glad the offseason is almost over, but I can't say I'm terribly optimistic about this season.
