Truck Day!

So, have you heard? Today was truck day. It's the day the truck heads down to spring training. It's one more concrete sign that Spring in on the way and I can stop shoveling until my arms come off.

I have to admit, though, I'm not sure I understand the truck. What exactly is in there that you need a truck for? MLB.com actually had a nice article about some of the things that are in various trucks. Pitching machines, sunflower seeds, baseballs, car tires, picture frames, uniforms. My question would really be...why isn't that stuff already in Florida?

Aren't they going to a baseball park/complex? What is happening there during the rest of the year? Is it sitting empty? Is it being used? If it's empty, why not store a few extra pitching machines down there? If it's being used, aren't they using pitching machines? Assuming the sunflowers are new this year, and not holdovers from last season, why not just order them when you get to the Fort? Don't they have a mailbox down there as well? As a matter of fact, does it seem odd that millionaires aren't expected to supply their own sunflower seeds? Or have thier own car tires and picture frames shipped to them? The uniforms are the spring training ones, right? Why did they bring them up to Boston in the first place? Why do they need to ship everything down to Florida?

Why isn't it already there?
