The game of ball is glorious."

...And Desperation Sets In

Ah, I miss baseball. More so this year, without the beloved distraction of hockey, but every offseason is far too long. Let's slap a retractable roof on every stadium and play year-round, how about it?

I know, I know. The offseason makes you value the season more. It's difficult to properly appreciate what you never have the opportunity to miss. But perhaps the season could be extended? Just a bit? Start in mid-March instead of early April. Is that too much to ask? We could pay for it with the Yankees' luxury taxes.

Maybe we could round up some of those out-of-work hockey players and put on a few exhibition baseball games for charity. It wouldn't be good baseball, but it would sure be entertaining!
