It’s all over. The season is done and now there’s naught to do but count the days until pitchers and catchers report. We of baseball fandom are left to make due with other sports to satiate our need for competition. The holidays should be more than enough to keep us busy in the interim, but what about the players and staff? The offseason is a vacation of sorts and while we wouldn’t expect grown men to go buck wild like schoolchildren set free after that last June school bell, it’s no surprise that the team will be looking for activities in the offseason. Sure, there are workouts and conditioning to keep up, but they must be making some additional plans.
Albert Pujols is due a pretty big pay bump this year. Perhaps he will go on a spiritual journey to see some monks on the top of a mountain and they will teach him their ways of mental and physical health so that he may once again move with the speed and power of his younger days. To speak frankly, at his salary it’s either that, or he tries to find a doctor that will prescribe HGH *and* keep his mouth shut.no comments
