The Days Ahead

October swirled around the Bronx this morning.

It came down Jerome Avenue and cut across East 164th Street past the construction of the new Yankee Stadium and then moved down River Avenue to the old Yankee Stadium.

The guys gathered around Juan Carlos’s coffee cart wrapped their hands around steaming cups and talked about the days ahead.

“This is the first taste,” someone said. “It’s gonna get colder and the wind is gonna blow harder before we get back to baseball.”

“We should have lots of news to keep us warm,” someone else shot. “It’ll be a busy winter.”

“I’m sure there will be plenty of news,” someone said. “A lot of the news will probably be good, but that doesn’t change the fact that there are a bunch of dark days between us and a ballgame.”

“Yeah,” they all said.

How long until pitchers and catchers? And how long until opening day? Too darn long.
