Today is practically a holiday in Sox Nation as the trucks get loaded up with spring training gear and equipment to begin the trek southward to Florida. This event is covered by all five Boston TV stations as well as the radio outlets and newspapers in town.
Today means only one thing around these parts, spring training and "spring" is less than a week away!
Later today on the blog, I'll showcase two trade packages that I received this weekend.
Also, in case anyone missed last night's tweet from Beckett's Chris Olds, the 2011 Topps clamsell packs at Toy R' Us contain purple diamond insert cards. So for those of you collecting these diamond cards, Target has red, Walmart blue, and Toys R' Us purple.
