For many, Sports is an escape from all of the stresses in real life. We put an importance on sports that could only be negated if we really thought about it.

Does it really make sense that the success of a baseball team can dictate our mood?

Does it really make sense that a group of adults care so much about the success of another group of adults that are strangers?

Does it really make sense that we care so much about our favorite group of strangers touching home plate more often than another group of strangers?


However, it is what it is...and we love it.

We love it so much that when the off season starts, we begin to long for relatively meaningless Spring Training Games. When those meaningless games finally start, we feel right again.

However, thanks to the ever present PED saga regarding our major off-season acquisition, this Spring doesn't have the same feel. This is why so many are probably being unfair to our major off-season acquisition.

Most are calling for him to say something. While this is the call of the masses, deep down we all know this would be a bad decision. From a selfish standpoint, most don't care.

Regardless of how this all plays out, many fans will have resentment toward our major off-season acquisition. This will be the case even if it isn't fair to him.

You see... this cloud has taken a little something away from us. It has taken away the pure fresh air that we relate to Spring Training. While I can't explain why adults feel that way about Spring Training, I can guarantee you that many do.

The Spring of 2007 will not be able to live up to expectations thanks to a huge dose of reality interrupting our attempted escape from it.
Love to hear what you think!
