Ah, the smell of the grass, the smell of hot dogs, the taste of a cold beer and the sound of overreaction -- spring certainly is in the air.
The exhibition season got underway today in Arizona, and already there's "trouble" for the defending champs -- Arizona managed five hits and three runs off of Tim Linecum in 1 2/3 innings. The first four Arizona batters singled off of Linecum to start the spring.
OK, nobody's too worried about Lincecum, and they shouldn't be. Even on Twitter, all the responses are sarcastic. Really, what's more important is that baseball's back and I'm listening to it on the radio (well, through the internet), but it's still baseball.UPDATE: The Giants took the Cactus League-opener, 7-6. So at least Linecum doesn't have to worry about a big L in his first start of the season.
