A large moving van was filled to the brim with gum, helmets, cups, and the spirit of Spring Training. It will travel 1,089 miles from Citizens Bank Way to Old Coachman Road in Clearwater, Florida. They will unload the contents upon arrival at Bright House Networks Field and with that a new year will commence.
There will be no snow, no shovels, no digging out from Snowzilla, or whatever they called it. What there will be is sun, plush grass, and a fresh opportunity to once again reign supreme. There will be a Halladay, a Hamels, and a Happ. There will be a skinnier Charlie, a wealthier Shane, and a healthier (hopefully) Lidge. There will be baseball.
And baseball begins in just six days.
