No more tears now; I will think upon revenge.
Mary Stuart (1542–87), Queen of Scotland
I love baseball. It’s simultaneously nostalgic and current while the action takes place between the lines. Last year was a storybook finish for all the baseball fans who tire of the New York Yankees being the dominate team. As you recall, the Boston Red Sox came back from three games down to beat the hated Yankees.
However, if the Red Sox’s continue to bask in their glory, they may be sorry. The plan is to award the World Series rings in front of the all-star Yankees, since their home opener is against the Bronx Bombers. One of the rules of competition in all sports is not to say anything the opposition can hang on the locker to inspire them. This ceremony will only serve to motivate the Yankees throughout the year.
Here is my first prediction of the coming baseball season: look for the Yankees to have the best record in baseball this year, I’d say ever, but their pitching will have to hold up all season.
