It’s here, televised baseball. While it might not feel the same, it’s a milestone. Weather is changing, spring is coming, everyone loves Arod again, and real baseball is only a few weeks away. For now we get to watch the guys we haven’t seen in months take bats, and the guys we’ve never seen at all shutout Jimmy Rollins. The weather might not indicate it, but today feels a little closer to summer, a little closer to summer baseball.
