I know I’m ready for winter to give us a break, and New Jersey hasn’t even had it particularly bad this year in comparison to other places.
But we’re finally starting to see signs of spring.
Yesterday, Matt Harvey spoke to the media about how “excited” he is to be in spring training this year.
“I feel great; I feel extremely healthy,” Harvey said, according to MLB.com’s Paul Casella. “It’s exciting to be back with this group and being able to work like one of them, and not being on the side doing your rehab. It’s fun to be part of the crew again.”
(Harvey’s not “in the best shape of [his] life,” which I’m sure is disappointed to some baseball bloggers, but let’s cut him some slack. There will be plenty of time to work on cliche delivery in Port St. Lucie.)
And today, Mr. and Mrs. Met helped to load up the equipment truck for its annual drive from Citi Field in Queens to Tradition Field in Florida.
Baseball is coming… hopefully we’ll be able to thaw out and enjoy it when it gets to us.
