    Yeah. Basball's back. That's good. I'm looking forward to the fix. First the numbers.

    We ended 2009 with this:



    and we should end 2010 with this:



    As a matter of fact, Joe Girardi has already registered the new goal.

    All will be right with the moon and the sun and the stars.
    You can not improve on perfection.
    Thanks slick.

    In 1923 the NY Yankees opened their new stadium
    They won the World Series that year.

    In 2009 the NY Yankees opened their new stadium
    They won the World Series that year.

    Baseball is indeed back.

    As stated in the past... A lifelong White Sox fan. This year is once again a crap shoot. Does Minnesota's new park help or hurt their cause? Is this the year Detroit actually lives up to their hype? Can the Sox starting pitching live up to its expectations? These are the 3 main contenders as I see it for the AL Central. Sorry Cleveland I don't think you have the pitching and Kansas City is just soaking up everybody else's rejects and will most likely dwell in the cellar yet again.

    Not making my daughter just focus on one sport has been a blessing... but she is suffering somewhat now in college tennis because of it. Almost all the girls she is playing now have been playing almost their entire life.
    But, for me (her too I think) I would never trade the good times of coaching her in softball since she was about 6 years old, and the basketball she played since she was 5. The funny thing is that we never really even tried tennis until the summer before she was to go to high school... so she has only been playing for about 5 years. The result may end up being that she is not burned out as it seems a good number of the girls that have been playing their whole life seem to be. Some of the best players in high school are not even wanting to play in college we have found.

Not many really good ballplayers from the Midwest or NE due to weather. If we lived closer to an indoor facility for baseball, we might have been inclined to spend the money to have him working every day, 6-7 days per week, but we may well have sucked the joy of baseball right out of him doing that. As it is, he's super excited when ball season rolls around.
    I think your attitude is refreshing. Too many parents force their kids into sports for their own reasons, not because the kids love them. Lots of articles on that.

    Certainly kids in the south, southwest and California (not to mention Latin America) have an advantge in being able to play year-round. That said, I think you might get some serious dispute about "Not many really good ballplayers from the Midwest or NE due to weather." Here is a list of Hall of Famers through 2/09. The top four are New York, Pennsylvania, California and Ohio.
