This is it folks. Mid December and cabin fever has set in for me here in Vermont. I am getting anxious nervous and depressed due to the short days and cold nights. Most depressing of all is the lack of Baseball, football just doesn't cut it. I need more games!!! I can't wait for April it's just too much. To save me from REALLY losing it I just got an Xbox and Espn MLB 2k5. I am 14 games into the season and the A's have the best record in baseball at 13-1. Chavez is the best hitter in baseball with .508 batting avg. he also has the most homeruns in baseball with 11. Juan Cruz pitched a full game and got 19 strike outs tying the record in one game! I know it doesn't mean anything, but god it is great to see the A's win even if it is fake and digital. 148 games to go till post season (man i can't wait for spring). Untill April I'm gonna keep my nose deep in the Xbox and on MLB.com watching archived games. Like game 3 against the twins in the first round of the playoffs this year!!! Anyway Happy Hannukah and Merry Christmas. Have a wonderful holiday and everyone THINK SPRING!!!!
