The first official event of the 2005 Red Sox season took place yesterday, as the team's equipment truck left Fenway Park for Fort Meyers yesterday. It's a sure sign of spring, and its always a story in the Boston area. A picture of the truck made the front page of the Boston Globe and the Metrowest Daily News even had an interview with the truck driver. Pitchers and catchers report next week.

It was a bit of a strange week on the baseball front, as the news was dominated by steroids. Jason Giambi had his bizzare "apology" press conference, where he said he was sorry for using steriods even though he never even mentioned the word. Then we have the beginning of the publicity blitz for Jose Canseco's new book, where he accuses practically everyone short of Freddie Patek of using steroids. I'll read the book, but much like with Pete Rose's book I'll get it out of the library since I don't want to put any cash in Canseco's pocket.
