Truck Day

Okay, I know it's strange that we Red Sox fans get so fired up about a moving van. But it's not just any moving van, it's the big rig that transports all the baseball equipment from Fenway Park to Fort Myers. It's the surest sign that the dreaded off-season is nearly over and that Spring Training is so close you can almost smell it.

And it's happening Saturday! I wonder if NESN will do any live shots?! It usually happens on a Monday, so I'm stuck at work, relying on random shots via ESPN. Having it on a Saturday is fantastic - almost sounds like something Dr. Charles would have orchestrated, if he hadn't headed over to Dodgertown.

Other key dates:
Feb. 14 -- Pitchers and catchers are due to report to Fort Myers.
Feb. 16 -- First workout for pitchers and catchers.
Feb. 20 -- Reporting day for Sox position players.
Feb. 22 -- First Red Sox full squad workout.
Feb. 28 -- First Red Sox spring training game.
