Spring training is nothing if not grueling. Here Dustin Pedroia of the Red Sox wisely prepares for the coming Red Chinese invasion by brushing up on his ping-pong skills in a game against Kevin Youkilis. Which makes the whole thing worse, because the only part of Youkilis that has any chance of being in shape at this point in the season is his goatee.
Anybody else ready for the games to start?
