I'm in love and I don't care who knows it

It's official! Spring Training began today when pitchers and catchers showed up for their first work-out (and probably some physicals, too). I'm eating chocolates (and not feeling a bit guilty about it) and looking through the PD's online album of straight-from-the-heart-of-the-action ST photos. 

Sounds like there are some Cardinals sporting new facial hair this spring, and while I'm not a huge fan of the look, I can't help but remember how Ryan Franklin's chin squirrel may have helped out his pitching a bit last year just when he needed it. Well, whatever works. 

Since I'm sans MLB network (thhhhbbbbt), I have to take what I can get, and today that means the 1993 World Series between the Phils and the Jays. Spoiler alert(!) The Jays won. Coming up next: The Cubs suck, but don't blame Steve Bartman. Sounds promising. 

I'm also enjoying today's two installments of C70's Playing Pepper series featuring the Cubs and White Sox. It's fun to get a look at what's going on in the rest of baseball as we wait for the season to start. If you haven't been keeping up with the interviews, you should check out the index and catch up. It's good reading.
