No baseball. While baseball has had its history of various problems, it has managed to put on an appearance of a game without a lot of accompanying BS. Having read "K" I was ready for the season. This was going to be a White Sox year. Their free agent pickups, the maturation of young players, and solid managing and coaching were going to make them fun to watch after several years of mediocracy. The worst part of the season that might never be is the death of Ed Farmer; the Sox play-by-play guy. I loved the way he described the game. He had a unique way of describing what was in the heads of the pitcher, batter, and runners. His understated description of a big plays and dead pan sense of humor were a great way to listen to a game. RIP.
