March is here, and I couldn't be happier. For starters, January and February have been annoyingly cold in Baltimore. I like cold weather, but I like when it's accompanied by snow as opposed to the wind that almost knocks my lanky butt (it's Ash Wednesday so I won't use the other word) over. I also add another year to my life this Saturday. 26! Woot. But, I'm really excited about March because I think it's the best month for sports. You've got Spring Traning and the hope, beer, and sun that comes with it. But you also have March Madness, aka the best postseason tournament around. I think September (pennant races and the start of college football) and October (playoff baseball and college football kicking into high gear) are close, but March is the best.
So how does Scott Hanson of the Seattle Times start this wonderful month? By jinxing Richie Sexson. Thanks a lot Scott. Now why don't you go ahead and write an article annointing (yes I know I spelled that wrong) Felix as the savior of the franchise?
Also, if you get a chance check out this post over on Lookout Landing. It's a very interesting look at the many young Mariners pitchers that have had injury problems.
