Pickles (2/25/10)

It’s that time of year again, when All-Stars, bench warmers, prospects, burnouts, steroid junkies, and other characters all report to spring training in the hopes of winning a World Series. Late February tends to be a magical time for me, but this year’s spring training seems tinged with sadness. That’s because, for the first time since 2001, the New York Yankees will open the season as defending champions. For eight glorious years, non-Yankees teams prevailed at the end of October. That all came crashing down last year, when the senior-most team from New York bested a very good – but perhaps a bit too cocky – Philadelphia Phillies team. And now the Yankees are one month away from claiming their championship rings. Ugh.
