Spring Training 2013 Thread (add your photos)

    Cubs, Indians, Rockies, Red Sox are the early leaders for pitchers and catchers reporting, today. The rest of the teams report in the next few days.

    Last month a friend gave me the Neil Leifer book of baseball photos. I wrote something meshing Neil's baseball photos with some of the baseball photos I've taken over the years. If you love baseball, or know someone who loves baseball, it's a great present.


    Who here wants to share some of their baseball photos?

    And, of course, this thread is all things Spring Training 2013.

    Opening Day is 49 days away.

    This site, and twitter feed, is a must-visit during spring training.

    First rueful chuckle of the spring comes via this tweet from the AJC's David O'Brien:

    I assume they're breaking into afternoon programming on all the Boston TV stations because of this.

    The annual wonders of spring -- crack of the bat, smell of the grass, Pablo Sandoval going in for more conditioning.

    And now this:

    @hankschulman: Cain hobbled off the mound looking like he was in a lot of pain as the ball deflected. #sfgiants.

    Stupid ass pigfucker Sterling of course goes into the typical-fatass-broacaster-who-hasn't-played-a-real-sport-in-40-years song and dance about how Granderson was drama-queening it up, "bending over like it's some horrible injury," "in the olden days nobody bent over like that after getting dinged in the hand."

    Of course all traces of the imbecile soliloquy have scrubbed from the internet. Last night on the radio highlight shows they played the clip and hurriedly added, "It must be noted at the time Sterling didn't know Granderson was injured."

    In other words, "here's the reason the stupid shit was talking like a stupid shit."

    In the interim of course I am sure the Yankee Powers that be decided, "Goddamn, this sound clip makes Sterling sound like a complete fucking idiot, better call MLB and get it scrubbed off all the sites."

    Of course if Sterling wasn't a complete fucking buffoon in the first place, he wouldn't make snarky/dimissive comments after players get hurt, but he is, so he does.
