Power surge

It would seem that our new shortstop's bat occasionally has a bit of pop. Let's hope we see a little bit of the same during the regular season.

Unlike others, I have no particular emotional investment in the Caribbean Series, but I have to say that it is wonderful, on a bitterly cold evening in February, to be able to go to and watch some live baseball. And although part of me recognises that these types of games will never have the same hold over me that Major League baseball does - especially with no personal national pride involved - they are still whetting my appetite for the World Baseball Classic next month.
