Last week the Houston Astros signed Brian McCann, a move that cemented what fans and Sports Illustrated already knew. 2017 is the year.
I could not be more hyped, but just a quick note to my new boy Brian, I haven’t forgotten this:
McCann belted a homer off of Roger Clemens in his first playoff at bat in a move that broke my 13 year-old heart.
Sometimes you’ve gotta bring a heartbreaker into the mix and turn him into a heart mender. I’m okay with that, I’ll gladly accept a World Series title as payment for the damages.
And if the rumors pointing Carlos Beltran in Houston’s direction are true… 2017 is gonna be a blast from the past, might even pull out my old Motorola RAZR to celebrate.
