Never Fear, Baseball’s Here!

Hozzie the Cat can stop hiding now. The Mets return to something resembling action this afternoon at 1:00 on SNY, taking on…like it matters who they play. Jace is mostly right [1]: Spring Training games are useless teases — except for the first one, which serves the same purpose as the adrenaline shot [2] in Pulp Fiction. This is the injection that jumpstarts us back to life and gives us a reason to peek out from under our tarps, our shrouds and our Snuggies [3] for another year.

Even the preternaturally reticent Hosmer is excited today.
