As I write this, I'm listening to the Twins getting beat by the Toronto Blue Jays in the second game of the season. Things haven't looked good so far, but that's OK. It's a marathon, not a sprint. Last night (the season opener) the Twins lost 13-3. But there's still 160 games to play.
I like to start each season with a great quote from the Terrance Mann character in the movie Field of Dreams, as played by James Earl Jones: "The one constant through all the years has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game - It's a part of our past. It reminds us of all that once was good...and it could be again."
