We're Born Again, There's New Grass on the Field

It’s snowing. A whiteout. The roads are covered, schools are canceled. The weatherman just said we’re going to have four inches of accumulation.
In two days, though, all that won’t matter. Our thoughts will be filled with sunshine, the crack of the bat, the smack of the ball hitting leather. On Thursday, the Pittsburgh Pirates will be in Bradenton and Opening Day will only be a month and a half away.
I say we just fast-forward through the Grapefruit League games and head to Houston now. Heck, I’ll even give Dave Littlefield a hand and set the rosters for him:
