Opening Day Countdown: 14

Let’s see if I can come up with a post every day of the rest of the offseason.  Today, there are 14 days left until Opening Day on April 6.

Two weeks, ladies and gents. TWO WEEKS from right now, we’ll be staying up late watching the Royals play the Angels. It’s about time. We’re to the point where something that should be a non-story – Eric Hosmer getting a bit of playing time in the outfield – has people yelling at each other on the KC Star website.

Oh wait, they all do that anyway? Sweet honey mustard, I need to stay away from that noise. But seriously, I don’t understand how people are actively upset about this. I have been trying since this afternoon to put myself in the mindset of the people who comment on Star stories like that. I imagine they get upset about absolutely everything:

“There are usually three M&Ms on these cookies, but this one has four?! UGH, I try to be a good fan but the stupid company just keeps making these boneheaded moves……..I don’t know how much more I can take.”

I don’t know, kids. It just seems like getting upset about the creation of roster flexibility is not super healthy. With interleague play stretching out over the whole summer, it’s probably more important than ever to get a little creative so you don’t have to stash a brilliant hitter on the bench every time you play in an NL park. It’s probably a good thing we’ll have actual games about which to complain in two weeks.

(I thought about highlighting some fun comments from that Star story, but I didn’t have anything nice to say, so I won’t say anything at all. Thumper taught me well.)

COMING UP: Next week, I will be unveiling a new fundraiser via Amazon Associates. It’s not for me, mind you, which is why I’m so excited about it. Basically, you’ll have the opportunity to use your shopping to help a lot of families who really need it. More details to come soon!
