Baseball is Back, Winter is over.

I am off to Florida to take in Spring Training, my Blue Jays look terrific and will challenge this year.

Yankees, Jays, Baltimore, Boston in the East.

I've got another season of "Manny being Manny", I wish he'd just make a move, any move even if it's wrong.

Re: Baseball is Back, Winter is over.

eagle, I have been a long time Sox fan, before the Jays came to town, i don't like the new attitude, they are becoming as arrogant as the Yankees(but I still LOVE Boston ).

Nobody will ever be as arrogant as the Yankees but you're right, things/attitudes have changed. Sad but true.

Money breeds arrogance. It shows in the NBA as well. Put $1M salary caps on and that might help the situation.
