Dear Winter

In Scottsdale, AZ at 3:11 p.m. Eastern, wiry Giants righty Tim Lincecum threw a first-pitch ball, low and inside, to Arizona's Willie Bloomquist. And with that, Spring Training began. Major-league pitchers are honing their deliveries; major-league hitters likewise their swings. Tomorrow brings a full slate of games in the Cactus and Grapefruit Leagues, including my Blue Jays' Florida debut vs. the Detroit Tigers.

In a little over a month, the boys of summer will make their way north ... to Cleveland, Detroit, and Chicago; to New York, Seattle, and Boston; to Pittsburgh and Philly and Baltimore. Yes, even to chilly Toronto.

Baseball is coming. Winter, you have been warned.

The Writer Is In ...

... and working so hard on his book that there's no time to blog. Mes excuses.
