When I was a kid, I always got "sick" the day of the Dodgers first spring training game. I couldn't go to school knowing that Vinnie would be sending out his wonderful descriptions of baseball and the Dodgers' newest future Hall of Famer again. Sorry Jeff and Dave, I was 9 years old and not nearly old enough to know that I should have been cynical, snarky and sarcastic to be a true fan. Well, damn it all, I like getting excited about the what ifs and the possibilities. If Peguero never makes it, at least I've enjoyed what he has done, instead of looking for all the reasons it's illusory. Isn't hope and renewal what spring is all about? Leave me alone in my blissful ignorance.
