    The Baseball Calendar

    I thought you'd enjoy this, which is an extra feature from the Random Thoughts book, which is now available at Amazon.com too.

    The Baseball Calendar:

    Pitchers and catchers.

    Visa problems.

    The hitters are getting their timing down and the pitchers are working on a few things.

    Tired arm.

    Night of the Turk.

    Trip North.

    That weird first game on the night before Opening Day.

    Opening Day.

    The kids are in school and the game-time temperature is 42 degrees.

    Someone's on a pace.

    June swoon.

    All-Star voting.

    Buyers and sellers.

    The last-minute scramble to fill the All-Star lineup after everybody has already voted.

    All-Star break.

    Despite a $200 million payroll, the Yankees need a losing team's ace.

    Trading deadline.

    Waiver wire.

    September call-ups and interim managers.

    Arizona Fall League.

    Winter ball.

    Hot stove.

    Next year.

    Love it. I don't know what your day job is, but I think you might've missed your calling.

    Very enjoyable, but why'd you skip the playoffs entirely?

    I guess I'm still not used to being there. You're saying these playoffs happen every year?

    He didn't miss it, he found it. And thankfully, he shares it with us.

    Since day one on this site, consistantly excellent, the best thing ever on RedsZone.

    You guys should pick up his "Random Thoughts" book. It's a gift to Reds fans everywhere from a brilliant and hilarious mind.
