t was reported today that the Houston Astros pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training on February 11, 2013, with position players reporting on February 15. I thought about how much I used to look forward to Spring Training in conjunction with the phrase that I think that most people are aware of ‘how to do more with less’. Could it be that my Astros will try and do more with less next year? Alas, I do not believe that will be the situation with the Astros, who have apparently decided to do ‘less with less’ by not spending any of the $80MM they receive from the local television contract on their $30MM payroll. Either new owner Jim Crane needs some serious money to service his mountain of debt or he is just keeping the money and laughing all the way home. One thing neither Jim Crane nor I am laughing about is the smack down the Houston Texas received by the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football this week. Being on the short side of two ‘friendly’ wagers for this game, keep checking out my blog, as you will soon see me gracing a Patriots jersey so stay tuned. And for Matt and Jay, I wear an XL.
