In a move that is sure to surprise no one but upset more than a few, Joe Girardi has announced that Joba Chamberlain will start the season in the bullpen. This means Kennedy will be starter number five, giving the Yankees all three of their young pitchers for the beginning of the season. Which should start any minute now. Seriously, start already. As much fun as it is to pretend to care about non play-off NBA basketball, or 64 teams of colleges to which you have no collection, or what Tiger is doing in the Toyota Tercel Classic, the season needs to start.
Pretty soon Baseball will be underway and all will be right with the world (the preceding statement does not include most of the middle east, Africa, or pretty much most of the rest of the world).
Soon SportsCenter will be watchable again, and those of us without cable will have something to watch on TV on Friday nights here in the New York area. Until then, consider doing your taxes to pass the time. You can even watch basketball and pretend it's baseball, which isn't as fun as it sounds. Baseball will be here soon, and then I can finally stop posting about when the season is going to start up.
