Baby Blues (2/11/11)

Spring training starts next week, which means every major league baseball team will begin the long (too long if you ask me) process of rounding its players into shape. And what will every manager say when interviewed by his local beat writer? “This year we’re going to focus on the fundamentals.” If only that were true. Unfortunately, not every team can be the Minnesota Twins. Most teams, my hometown Chicago Cubs included, infuriate their fans by overthrowing the cutoff man, grounding into brutal double plays, and leaving runners on third base with less than two outs. So here’s hoping this year’s Cubs finally stop shooting themselves in the foot by cutting down on needless mistakes. Practice, guys. Practice.
