Two Weeks Notice

It's Friday. It's 10:30. It's time to party. I am your excellent host, Eric Bunnell. We are sitting here on February 8th exactly two weeks away from the start of the 2013 season. Despite having the program's best season ever, we still have a lot to prove. Unless you're the last team standing, you'll never be satisfied with the ending. But 2012 was particularly agonizing considering the way in which it ended. Now we are two weeks away from a fresh start and our chance to rinse the bitterness from our collective mouths. So this is our two weeks notice as a baseball team. We have two weeks to lock down our routines. Two weeks to get reenergized for the new season. Two weeks to snap out of any "halfway thru Spring Training" funk we may be in. Two weeks to get right before the first pitch. 

This is not, in any way, an attempt to push the panic button but spending a month practicing summer's game indoors can inhibit a player or team's development if not in the right frame of mind. So this is more of an attempt to bring the subject to the forefront and to be aware of the position we are in, and could be in three months.

On another note, I would like to wish former pitching coach Mark Sankovich the best of luck in his endeavor in the business world. I have thoroughly enjoyed spending the past two and a half years  talking baseball and coaching along side him through a great deal of success and wish him the very best.
