Hope springs early

It feels like spring training with all the feel-good stories popping up.  On Wednesday, we had Alex Rios and his “five swings,” Scott Linebrink learning lessons, Carlos Quentin recovering from plantar fasciitis and Camp Cora in full swing.
Today?

These guys better pace themselves, because at this rate, we’re going to have nothing to talk about when pitchers and catchers report.
******************************
Speaking of Jones, 7-11 won’t be paying for his salary.  The Sox now find themselves $500,000 poorer with the convenience store dropping their sponsorships of the game time.  First pitch will now take place at 7:10 p.m.

That was such a good promotion I wonder why 7-11 dropped it, that company seems recession proof and heck they bought out white hen with a big bag of cash.
I AM LOVING THE PRESEASON HYPE ALREADY, if I hear one more cub fan excited about soto dropping 40 lbs im going to have a have a laughing meltdown.

Read that article on Rany on the Royals about Scott Podsednik. My favorite lines: “Does Podsednik bring intangibles to the ballpark? I have no doubt that he does; it’s just that you have to sit near the players’ wives section to appreciate them.”

Also, Gordon Beckham also appears to be in great shape: “He’s been lifting weights for the past 2 1/2 months, and after a relaxing offseason, Beckham feels like he will come to Arizona in the best shape he’s ever been.”–http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20100120&content_id=7946620&vkey=news_cws&fext=.jsp&c_id=cws

FWIW, I plan to be in terrible shape when I get to Glendale. Someone’s got to do it.
