I know spring training is that time of year when hope abounds and every team in baseball is destined for the World Series, even crappy teams like the Houston Astros or perennial losers like my Pittsburgh Pirates.
But, really .... this is cause for actual hope that the game's on firm standing.
If the Red Sox and Yankees are already getting in you-know-what-ing matches in spring training games, you know it's going to be a great year. Best part of this story: The headline.
"Bobby Valentine Irked By Yankees."
Well, sure. Who isn't?
