Red Sox Pitchers And Catchers Report!
A new baseball season is approaching! Yesterday, the next big step towards baseball season came as Red Sox pitchers and catchers reported for spring training. It's finally time to cast away the disappointment and despair of the end of the 2011 season with Jon Lester and Josh Beckett (right) apologizing for the chicken and beer shenanigans. It appears that the Red Sox new acquisitions-- particularly Andrew Bailey-- are fitting in well with the team. Bailey has been chatting quite a bit with the media-- stating that he won't back down from anyone as the closer of the Boston Red Sox. He is not in the least worrying about taking over the role in the wake of the best Red Sox closer ever-- Jonathan Papelbon-- who departed for Philadelphia this offseason. On a separate note, I'm sorry for the difficulties that have come with my G-mail (and blogger) account being hacked and briefly shut down. While I'm not the most optimistic fan in the world right now, I'm very excited for baseball season.
