The most beautiful words in the English language are not "I love you," nor are they "Of course you can have seconds." They are "pitchers and catchers report." The Cubs' batteries do so Wednesday, the Sox on Friday, a sure sign that spring is just around the corner. Soon our sidewalks will again be populated by mango vendors and children jumping rope. As of Jan. 29, Vegas gave the North Siders 3:1 odds to win the World Series, compared with 15:1 for the White Sox.
