Pitchers and catchers came and went.  It was actually pretty uneventful.  Most of them were already down there.  The entire rotation and most members of the bullpen are already there.  As they should be, because for some of them, like Dice-K, Beckett, and Lackey, if they weren’t early for Spring Training, they were late.  But they look good.  Everyone seems to have lost some weight, and the extra time should pay off in the long run.  Everyone is heading down to Fort Myers next week.  Although I doubt that will be very eventful either, because many of the position players are there early as well.  That’s obviously something to be very proud of and very reassured by, that we’ve got guys on our team who are dedicated, responsible, and raring to go.  I just want some baseball already, is all I’m saying.  At least we’re that much closer.

In other news, the Bruins lost to the Leafs on Tuesday, 3-4.  But we made up for it with back-to-back wins on Thursday and Friday against the Islanders and Sens.  6-3 and 4-2.  We also traded a second-round draft pick to the Sens for center Chris Kelly.  Oh, and we also traded a first-round Entry Draft pick, forward Joe Colborne, and a conditional second-round pick in 2012 provided we make the Stanley Cup finals this year or re-sign the object of this whole string of perks after this season to the Leafs for Tomas Kaberle.  Finally.  This trade has been bandied about for at least a year.   So I can’t say I’m surprised.  I’m just glad that it’s finally finished so we can all just play some hockey and maybe actually get to the Stanley Cup finals this year.  That would be nice.
