The Waiting Game

Behind_Home_View.JPGAs the calendar turns to February, there is nothing to do now but wait until baseball season.

Opening Day...when the final cold days of winter melt into the warmth of spring.

The vivid colors of green grass, the bright uniforms when the players take the field, the cleanest dirt you'll ever find.

The bright lights of a night game.

The MLB Extra Innings package.

David Wright.

MLB Network's nightly coverage.

Johan Santana.

Fantasy baseball.

Standings and stats.

The excitement a healthy Jose Reyes can bring.

You can have your 'pitchers and catchers' and 'position players report'.

I can't wait for the real thing.

Just 2 more full (empty) months until the regular season.

9 more weeks.

63 more days.

Boy, I hope the Mets don't suck.
