Flash to Deer Point, Texas. Andy Pettitte shuffles to the door when someone knocks and it turns out to be a New York Post reporter wondering if he will participate in the 2011 season as a player for the New York Yankees. The Yankees would sure love to know. Here's part of what he had to say...
"I'm just chilling out, hanging. I'm relaxing. If I had something, y'all would know. If I knew exactly what I was doing, y'all would know. I don't want to be a story. I really don't want the Yankees to worry about me. I just want them to go, just go on."
Just go, go on. Well, it sounds to me that he's gong to make his own decision on own his terms in his own time frame. Let's hope it's by February. Please, Andy. Oh, the Boston Red Sox have NO similiar worries. And that's a good thing. Here is the entire Boston Red Sox spring training game lineup. ALL GAMES go on sale today, so get out those credit cards, then go down to Florida and have fun! May the Sox win, especially the games you picked out. And don't forget, before or after the game (both??), to partake of some of the BEST BABY BACK RIBS I've ever had anywhere at Michelbobs. They have a place in Naples and a bigger one in Ft. Myers, not far from where the Red Sox play. And speaking of spring training & the Boston Red Sox, here is the full 2011 spring schedule....

My mouth is watering and it's only 5:38am on a Saturday. YUMMMMMM, though. The unwritten rule is this...if you're lucky enough to have tickets for any spring training Red Sox games in your pockets, before the game (or after), try Michelbobs. You'd instantly become a happier person.
Hey, have a great Saturday and a wonderful weekend. You can click on this post's title to be zapped somewhere that has more about the homeless man with the "voice from God." He DOES have a magic voice. As always, BE WELL and let's be careful out there. See ya.
