Hope Springs: Pitchers and Catchers Report!

Aren’t you impressed that I refrained from using a caps locky title with multiple exclamation points? BUT IT WAS SO TEMPTING!!!!

Monday was the big day for pitchers and catchers from several MLB teams to report. Others, like my Yankees, report Tuesday. And then you have those like my second husband Derek Jeter recovering from surgery and other ailments who have been at their respective training facilities for a while. All this to say HOORAY FOR BASEBALL’S WELCOME RETURN! How about a photo essay?

Let’s start with new Jay R.A. Dickey, who is kind of an awesome human being in case you weren’t aware. It’s going to be tough cheering against this new AL East foe.

  1. Hooray! I am currently monitoring the Cards’ beat writers for more photos of Lance Lynn, who apparently lost twenty pounds and shaved (and now does NOT look like he’s dressed up as R.A. Dickey for Halloween). I am really, really going to miss having R.A. in New York, though. He’s a delight.
