The world is a grind and so is the Major League Baseball season. There is no true offseason anymore much like in life there aren’t any true breaks anymore. Everyone is so busy and everything needs to happen now. We are a society that wants our four course meal cooked for us and we want it now no matter what you have to do to get it done, and God forbid if it’s cold or old or not up to your freshness or general standards. We want our cake and we want to eat it too and we often forget what it’s like to simply sit in a house with a tin roof or sit in a car with the one you love and listen to each other breath while the rain hits the roof.
Why do I bring this up? Life is busy and there isn’t always time for naps. Major League Baseball, and especially spring training during those intense spring training competitions, are unrelenting and don’t allow time for naps either like the nap that Bryan Mitchell took on Monday afternoon. Mitchell, making his third start of the spring, is a definite option for one of the two open starting rotation spots in the Yankees pitching staff and his bad start could not have come at a worse time.
It’s mid-March now and while this is still just the beginning this doesn’t mean it’s time to take a nap. You have to still take the bull by the horns and you have to ride that mother like there is no tomorrow… because tomorrow isn’t promised for anyone this time of the year. Words to live by. Good morning all.
