The Wait Is Over!

With so many players are already in camp -- we have seen video of hitters in the batting cages action, fielders taking grounders, assorted interviews -- this feels slightly anti-climatic*, but pitchers and catchers report today!

* Maybe this is why Truck Day remains important. (Yes, it *is* important. Obsessive, fun/silly, and important.) It is a well-defined marker of the coming season. The entire event happens at one place and at one time. We know the date in advance; there is a clear before and after. After all, *a portion* of the truck cannot leave early.
Two more days to vote for Joy of Sox for Best Red Sox Blog in the New England Sports Blog Awards.

This is great--NESN's doing a live show from Ft. Myers, and they're having each guest hit golf balls from right field to second base (the "hole"). Tito went first and was pretty close to the bag. TC: "Is that the first time you golfed in sandals?" Tito: "Unfortunately, no." Tito then said after Bard hits, he guarantees he'll still be atop the leaderboard.
