Another Reason to Enjoy Spring Training
Due to the lack of meaningful game action (unless someone gets hurt or a player wins a starting role with a great performance) baseball beat writers spend their days in Florida and Arizona coming up with stories there probably wouldn't be enough time or space to do during the regular season. In today's New York Times Ben Shpigel tells the story about the Mets new left fielder Moises Alou coming to play in the town where his father-in-law was murdered. It's a great piece of writing and well worth checking out. And reading how Alou dealt with the tragedy makes me thinking signing him will go down as one of the best deals of the winter.
