Dare to dream
Regarding E.J. Dionne Jr.’s column “Hallelujah, baseball season is here” [Opinion, April 1], I say “Amen, Brother!” I, too, believe that “hope is the virtue on which faith and love depend.”
While unable to relate to Dionne’s dedication to the Red Sox during their “period of boring incompetence,” according to John Sexton in his book “Baseball as a Road to God,” I do know what it is to start a season full of hope in the Seattle Mariners. Opening Day is yet another chance for a new beginning — redemption for all those other fruitless seasons that are now behind us.
Once again my faith in King Felix, Gutie, Saunders and the rest of the returning team is fueled by their performance in the Cactus League, the return of Raul Ibanez and the acquisition of some promising new and veteran players.
Yes, once again I dare to dream of a postseason and a shot at the World Series. After a dreary Seattle winter, I am once again ready to watch and wait, hope and pray.
