This is the week.  All of our Eagles complaints, all of our disgust with the Flyers, all of our hope in lottery balls, they will all be forgotten this week.  Pitchers and catchers.

Bob Ford did a great job in Sunday's Inquirer setting the mood for the glorious day in February when pitchers and catchers show up in Florida.  No breaking news from Ford, but a simple reminder of what that day means to fans in Philadelphia.
