As the great American philosopher Pogo once put it:
Spring has sprung, the grass has riz,
I wonder where the flowers is.
Pogo was referring not to the one-time White Sox catcher who remains unwanted by any team this spring, but by the giddiness about all things blooming, a giddiness present in any all statements by White Sox players, coaches, managers, front officers and, no doubt, batboys and clubhouse crew. Not to be outdone, pretty much everyone covering the Sox has gone ultra-giddy, no doubt from the joy of warm Arizona weather.
In Sharing Sox this week, SSS duty geezer Leigh Allan and son and west coast correspondent, Will, do their bit and wax effusive over all kinds of things, then delve into the great philosophical question of whether spring training performances mean anything. Oddly enough, they even have an answer to that.
Plus. of course, an evaluation of Yoán Moncada’s hit single fo the musical variety.
