Last week I was obsessing about spring training, even as I couldn’t wait for it to start. I wondered how the players would react to questions about Torre’s book, to the arrivals of CC, AJ and Tex, to the challenge of not making the playoffs last year.
What a chump, right? Little did I know there would be way bigger things to worry about. (I’ll deal with them in the next post.)
Anyhow, I was dying to know how the ’09 season would turn out. So I did what any self-respecting fan would do: I went for a tarot card reading.
O.K. Maybe you wouldn’t have done it, but it worked for me. It must have worked for the New York Times too, because they’re running my article about the reading in Sunday’s paper.
No, I didn’t make any of it up. Not one sentence. If anyone wants Patricia’s number, I’d be glad to pass it along.
