You know I just realized the holidays are a lot like free agents: Rarely as good as the hype that precedes them.
No joke, guy. My Thanksgiving weekend could be described as one part Edgah Renteria and one paht Matt Clement.
Really the holiday family gathering encapsulates much of the tenor of a typical baseball season …
It stahts off full of hope and promise with so many "so nice to see you's" but usually ends in fingah pointing, animosity and "25 family members, 25 cabs."
Can't hardly wait for Christmas. W00T!
