BSOHL stories are usually reserved for veterans looking to rebound from a decline. But even a 23 year-old can be in the BSOHL. Just ask Orioles’ pitcher Chris Tillman:
“I’m in better shape than I’ve ever been, at least stronger,” he said. “All the running has definitely helped. I truly believe I’m better than I’ve ever been. I went to API last year, but that was more about injury prevention. This year, I’m going after it. No more tryout stuff. I’ve got to get after it. I’m train pretty hard out there.”
I worry about these younger guys being in the BSOHL. They’re way more media-aware than the older guys. They get memes quicker and stuff. Soon — like, at any time now — some young player is going to ironically offer that he is in the BSOHL, and once that happens I feel like all of the fun will be taken out of it.
And don’t you dare say that the fun is already out of it. I NEED these stories, dammit. It’s the only way to get through the winter. So humor me, OK?
