Rainy day round-up

* Guess we’ll have to wait till tomorrow afternoon to see our beloved local nine “descending the stairs from the grandstands.” From the stands? Are they for real? This positively reeks of Steinbergism.

One SoSHer’s take...

I'm already getting excited for the 2010 home opener...

Dave Mellor will get to work immediately after the 2009 season, plowing and fertilizing the warning track, cutting seed lines with a disc harrow, enclosing it in a thermal insulating tent, and planting an acre or so of Butter and Sugar Corn. Five months later, the Sox will make their entrance Field of Dreams style. Kevin Costner will throw out the first ball after tearfully asking Tek if he wants to have a catch. Meanwhile, Timothy Busfield will pace back and forth in the owner's box, repeatedly imploring John Henry not to sell Fenway Park.

* Guest bloggers galore over at Full Circuit Clout! And remember: “Drink DUFFY'S PURE MALT WHISKEY. For when you are not looking well!”

* In a Q&A on his Web site (subs. only) Bill James writes that “I think my first favorite player was Tito Francona, Terry's father...”

* If you haven’t yead read Boston magazine’s Dustin Pedroia profile, please do so now.

* “If it ain’t broke...”

* Seal, we hardly knew ye.

* 2:10 p.m. and it’s, uh, still not really raining...

EDIT: From the window, that appeared to be the case. But I just stepped out onto Brookline Ave and now it's raining really hard. I stand corrected!
