This is a new semi-weekly column from Leitch. It has words, and pictures. It's called Ten Humans Of The Week. It might or might not work. But here it is.
For the first time in my life, I'm heading to spring training this year. Twice, actually. I'm pretty much destined to be disappointed.
This Friday, I'm heading to Jupiter to see my Cardinals (and Chris Carpenter, whose arm is totally not going to fall off) "play" the Nationals, the first spring training trip for both me and Bryan Leitch. I fully expect Dad to wear the same tanktop all weekend. Then, in a couple of weeks, I'm all business baby, heading to Steinbrenner Field for a story for New York. The first trip, I'll enjoy sunshine and warmth and the bathing glow of Cardinals Red. The second, I'll be interviewing a naked C.C. Sabathia — lookin' good! — and trying to find something new to say about one of the most overexposed entities on earth. (I'm making a habit out of this.) I can't imagine which will be more fun.
