It's snowing. It's dark, football season is over (although the Eli Manning hagiography, a strange and surprisingly anemic phenomenon outside of New York, straggles into its second desperate week), and most of the basketball news these days is about trades as much as games.
And then, a ray of sunshine: as if on cue, to wash away news of Roger Clemens' idiocy, pitchers and catchers report for spring training this week (my Detroit Tigers had their guys report today). This is the year we steal the World Series crown from Jonathan's Red Sox, I'm sure of it.
