About a month away from opening day in the MLB.

I have to say, I LOVE the addition of the pitch clock. More games ending in the "2 Hours 15 Minutes to 2 Hours 45 Minutes" range. Not too many games going past 3 hours anymore. Like some long games are fun but at times it is still excruciating watching a game go 4-5 hours lol like in the past, especially in the middle of the regular season.

It's weird having anything "timed" in baseball it had always been a "timing-free" sport but IMO the pitch clock/hitter clock is a good idea. Not being timed is a recipe for all sorts of neurotic/OCD behavior batting glove adjusting, cup adjusting, toe tapping, bat swinging, blinking 10 times before each pitch ...

As far as the Sox go, my expectations are low in terms of record; I'm thinking they won't even finish at .500. I do expect Sale to get hurt AGAIN, and I expect Arroyo to get hurt AGAIN. I'm sure there will be one or two guys who do surprisingly well, but I can't see their lineup generating a ton of offense.
