It's still so early for baseball, Josh Beckett hasn't yet gotten back from his "special off-season training retreat"(see above*), and today's slush storm in Boston doesn't exactly let you smell the peanuts and Cracker Jack in the air just yet, either.
But forget about prognosticatory rodents. Around here, our sign of early spring has 18 wheels and hauls a load of baseball equipment over highways from Massachusetts to Florida. A very happy Truck Day, one and all!
