The start of the MLB season is here and I, for one, couldn't be more thrilled. All that offseason stuff doesn't mean anything to me. Roger Clemens, Winter Meetings, Trades and Free Agency ... who cares!
Now that the season is underway, I'm checking box scores, watching and attending Spring Training games and looking at a lot of stats. I enjoy what happens on the field and I don't want to know about anything else.
I don't want to know about how much a player is making. I don't want to know about who Derek Jeter is dating. I could care less about Barry Bonds or Roger Clemens. None of that enhances or takes away from my love for the game.
I'm looking forward to attending several Marlins games this season and not because I'm a Marlins fan. Truth be known, I'm a Brewers fan, but I enjoy sitting at the ballpark and watching games, no matter which teams are playing.
Here's to an exciting 2008 season. Go Brewers!
