High Hopes

Spring is a season of re-birth, and nowhere is that more apparent than in the world of Major League Baseball. Nobody knows how the upcoming season is going to turn out, but it's always good to read that Matt Clement wants to atone for a dismal second half of '05, Keith Foulke is feeling focused and Curt Schilling plans on pitching about 750 innings.

Of course, if your glass is half-full, you'll tell me that none of this is stuff we can take the bank, but it's encouraging to know that players are feeling good about the season ahead. Somebody has to take home the World Series trophy in October, so what's wrong with hoping that it can be us?
