Hope springs eternal or eternal Spring hopes!
Expecting a heavy snowfall this afternoon really makes one wonder if we will experience the same opening day in 2008 that we had in 2007, 48 days from today.
The time has passed quickly since game 7 of the ALCS in Boston.
It all starts again in 48 days, right here, at the newly named Progressive Field.
What if Mark Shapiro is right?
What if familiarity breeds success as he believes?
With all but two players (Lofton and Nixon) from 2007 reporting for Spring Training over the next week in Winter Haven, the "getting to know you" part will not be necessary. This team is expected to be able to hit the ground running where they left off.
Let's hope Shapiro is right!
