It’s the tension.
That’s what’s missing. We’re only two weeks away from Opening Night, and it’s not that I’m not excited for baseball to be back. Because I most certainly am. But that’s… kind of it? It’s like a friend coming to visit. I’m happy for the company. Especially as long as our friend baseball tends to stick around. And like most guests who stay that long, you do get annoyed from time to time with them.
But this March, this spring training… there’s no anxiety.
