I’m too lazy (and bad) to do the math, so I’m going to take MLB.com’s word for it when they say there’s only 97 days left until Opening Day. So close, yet so far.
In the meantime, not counting today, there are only two days left in 2011. Hard to believe.
I know the common thing to do around this time is post a ‘Best Of’, highlighting the Jays’, well, highlightes of 2012. Unfortunately, I’m terrible at that stuff. If I were to do that, almost everything I mentioned will be from September. That’s not to say the Jays’ final month was their best, I just have a bad time remembering what happened back in April.
Plus a .500 season isn’t really much to reflect upon.
So rather than look back, I’ll choose to look ahead. Unless you’re the St. Louis Cardinals, 2012 can’t come fast enough. As soon as the new year starts, they are no longer the current year champs.
Jan. 1st also signifies a ‘half way’ mark as such, as we’re now through the two of the four months in which no baseball is played. Now if we can just find a way to survive January and February, we’ll soon have the warm comforts of Spring Training baseball to remind us why we love the sport so much in the first place.
A big name free agent signing or a block buster trade to improve the team would be nice though.
