Baseball On My Brain

Only 45 days?

I’m a member of a bunch of groups on LinkedIn, and one of the posts earlier today announced that there was only 45 days or so left until pitchers and catchers report to spring training.

While I’m unquestionably looking forward to the upcoming season, I find myself not so wrapped up in the who’s playing where and which team will finish atop their division discussions this year as I have been in previous years.

Maybe it’s because I’m not a fantasy player, and ultimately I realize that I can’t control who signs whom and what happens to come off the Hot Stove. I can only trust that those in charge of my favorite team are able to make decisions that will bring postseason play and a World Series trophy.

In fact, I just went to the Mariners’ website and there is nothing on there that screams 2009 will be a good season – something that I think most fans already understand given how bad the club was last year and how little has been done this offseason to make them better.

But with that being said, I find myself looking forward to the season with the same level of deep-rooted interest and anticipation – to get back to the yard and out in the sun, watching my favorite sport and our country’s national pasttime. Having endured several inches – maybe even a foot by now – of snow, let me say that the spring and summer months can’t get here quick enough.

I’m sure lots of Yankees and Mets fans are looking forward to the season because of the new faces on their clubs. But what about you – what are you looking forward to most about the 2009 season?
