TIME FOR LUNCH. Many years ago when I was but a lad and mastodons still roamed the plains freely, consuming entire swaths of scrub grass as they went, Roger Clemens on the heels of his first Cy Young Award stormed out of Red Sox camp demanding a better deal than the one the team was allowed under the CBA to pay him.

Gorman, when questioned by a ravenous pack of rabid hyenas, better known as the Red Sox press corps, responded to the tantrum that indeed, the sun would rise, the sun would set and he'd have lunch and those were the three things he could count on that day.

Words to live by. And on that note, it's time for me to affirm the validity of the third truism Gorman uttered.  Here's to you, Lou.

Requiescat in pace

RICH DYER on the sudden seriousness of spring training: "You don't need to slide too many abacus beads back and forth to figure out that nine players currently in camp will either be sent to the minors, cut, or traded in the next week. Spring Training is no longer about feel good stories, slow moving ballgames in the desert sun, and fans stretched out on the lawn beyond center field."

Meme shamelessly swiped from Glenn Reynolds.

SPOCK, BONES, WHAT THE DEVIL'S GOING? - Wait. What? I missed Shatner's 80th birthday, yesterday?

If there was no William Shatner, we'd need to invent him.
