Big Papi circling the bases

David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox

I’m not a Red Sox fan, but I am hoping for big things from Big Papi this year as he is on my fantasy team.

Spring Training 2014

Darnell McDonald takes away a home run from Kelly Johnson boston red sox fenway park

Darnell McDonald of the Boston Red Sox leaps …

… and does he catch it?

126_6218 Darnell McDonald takes away a home run from Kelly Johnson boston red sox fenway park

The fans and the Blue Jays bullpen know the answer to that question.

It’s February, and that means spring training for MLB will begin soon. Boston will seek to defend their title, but the Yankees have spent a fortune this off season to try and stop them.

The guy who hit the ball that was caught, above, Kelly Johnson, is now a Yankee. I was actually hoping this hit had turned into a home run as Johnson was on my fantasy team at the time.

Will today be the day?

My random, desktop image of the day turned out to be this one. Weird, no? The last time the Red Sox won a World Series at home in Fenway Park was 1918. Will they do it again tonight?

Omar Vizquel

I meant to post something about Omar Vizquel near the end of the 2012 baseball season, just before he retired, but I forgot that I had watched him play twice (once in Oakland and once in Boston) last year until this photo came up as my random, desktop image of the day.

Omar is actually older than me. With his retirement I became older than every active MLB player which makes me feel very old. As a kid I remember thinking how old the players all were. Now they all seem so young. What happened?

Vizquel had some great years between 1992 and 2006, winning 11 Gold Gloves during that stretch. He finished his career with nearly 3,000 hits and over 400 stolen bases.

Today’s photo was taken at Boston’s Fenway Park during its 100-year anniversary year.

Going, going, gone! Goodbye 2012.

Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays hits a home run (way!) over Fenway Park’s Green Monster and the fans sitting on the Green Monster react.

Fenway Park turned 100 years old in 2012. I visited it for the first time.

In 2013 I’ll be watching most of my baseball games in Gwangju Mudeung Baseball Stadium, home of the Kia Tigers of the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO or 한국 야구 위원회).
