Baseball Fever Seems Low Grade This Season

Baseball season officially began last week when the Oakland A's and Seattle Mariners played some games in Japan.  However, many baseball fans probably feel like the season officially started last night when the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals helped the Miami Marlins open their new stadium.

My favorite team, the Chicago White Sox start the season tomorrow in Texas against the Rangers.  I used to countdown the days until the start of a new baseball season.  I always enjoyed all the corny stuff about a clean slate and another chance to make good.

I'm just not feeling it much this year.  Maybe it's because the White Sox are predicted to have a horrible season or maybe it's because I'm starting to realize that my cheering will not have any impact on how million dollar athletes will perform.

Don't get me wrong, I'll be at the White Sox home opener this season.  I go every year and will continue to go as long as I'm in within driving distance of the ballpark, but I'm not "feeling" it as much as years past.

I'm not sure the Sox are feeling it either.  Each year the White Sox have a slogan for the season.  Past years include "Good Guys Wear Black", "Grinder Ball" and "All In".  This season the slogan is "Appreciate the Game."

Are you kidding me?! 

Why don't they just say "Appreciate the Good Food" or "Appreciate the Ample Parking" or Appreciate the Time Away From Your Job."  Better yet, they could be honest and just say "We Think We're Going To Suck, But Please Come to At Least One Game This Season."

Who knows.  Maybe the team will surprise everyone and contend for the division.  I will make this prediction: the White Sox slugger Adam Dunn will bounce back this year and have a solid season.

Hopefully there will be some fans around to appreciate it.
