“Baseball is a game, yes. It is also a business. But what it most truly is is disguised combat. For all its gentility, its almost leisurely pace, baseball is violence under wraps.” -Willie Mays
Every spring, the cold drifts, and the adrenaline accelerates. The automatic renewal of my MLB.com memberships makes it offical; it’s baseball season. Hello, churros and Giants dogs. Hello, Buster. Hello, Orange Fridays. Hello, L.A.; it’s too bad that we have to beat you. Hello, Kruk and Kuip. Hello, the coldest nights at AT&T that never seem that cold when we win with a walk-off home run. Hello, boys. See you in October.
