Today the Grapefruit league begins for Major League Baseball. I couldn't be happier for two reasons: 1) I like baseball; and 2) It's a sure sign spring is just around the corner in the frozen north.
Today the Tigers take on the Mets. The game won't really tell us very much about how good either team is. It will still be fun though. I'll be listening on MLB's Gameday Audio service. It'll be great just to hear a baseball game being called after a long winter break.
My intention is not to make this a baseball blog. I will be making comments about the Tigers as the season progresses. Hopefully the comments will be constrained to things like "I can't believe they lost to the Royals" or similar.
