With that being said, here is a list spring training phrases and clichés that I am guilty of beating to death over the course of the past few months. I acknowledge my intermittent lack of original thoughts, and apologize for subjecting you to such repetitive phrases and clichés, and will be more than glad to shelf them until Spring Training 2010.
- “Making the trip north”
- “25 man roster”
- “Staying behind in Las Vegas”
- “A good/bad outing”
- "Question mark(s)"
- “Tear/rip the cover off the ball”
- “In fine form”
- And my personal favourite … “Ready for Opening Day”
