  1. It was worth the wait!

  2. I’m officially concerned that Martin has either a labrum or a rotator cuff tear.

    • Wouldn’t that be pretty easy to diagnose?

      • With an MRI? I would think so. Why hasn’t he had one yet? Maybe because they wanted to see what would happen after a few days. If I have this right, they don’t want to go around giving MRI’s unless they think it’s necessary.

        • I obviously don’t have any more knowledge than the next guy on the bus, but I think they’d be pretty darn quick to check up on their $17m investment.

          • You would think. Maybe the trainers are all over it, know exactly where his problem is, and it isn’t the location of the labrum or rotator cuff.

    • I think it’s safe to say that was a good signing.

  3. Got an e-mail today

    Season Tickets have been shipped.

    Crap, today is March 1, one month till Opening Day

  4. Was Jose doing his offseason training in Miami by any chance?

  5. Just caught up on the chat.

    “They need a couple of total $#%^%$ types.”
    - They need MORE $#%^%$ types??? Haven’t you read my posts?

    “Promised myself I wouldn’t spend this whole trip bashing Florida”
    - Why not? Go for it. Gotta be right on target. I mean, it must be why no one comes here anymore.

    “This is the Internet at some of its worst.”
    - Again, haven’t you read my posts?

    “Holiday In Cambodia”
    - I prefer Turtle “Crick”

    “Get back to being a lot more annoying”
    - Again, haven’t you read my posts?

    I predict that by July, we’ll complain that Tabata is too muscular for baseball.

    I’ll leave you with a final thought.
