FROM THE DESK OF BLACK LARRY KING In a world exclusive, Black Larry King shares his thoughts on the upcoming baseball season. ------------------------- If time begins on Opening Day, where does it spend the offseason? They should tell you this stuff! … He may have been nicknamed “The Cobra,” but the great Dave Parker tells me he’s deathly afraid of snakes … If there’s a better broadcaster than John Sterling, I haven’t heard him … Do kids still eat Cracker Jacks? … Taking walks is for wimps. The great Jim Rice told me that and I never forgot it! … My sources tell me Sparky Anderson would love to manage again … What’s with these new statistics? I’m still trying to figure out ERA! … My 2 cents: The game misses Marge Schott … Why three strikes and you’re out? Why not 2, or 4? … What’s with these skyrocketing salaries? In my day players got minimum wage and fought in wars in the offseason … Trust me, gang, Tony LaRussa’s pasta sauce is terrific! … Is there a more beloved owner than Jeffrey Loria? ... Why do they call Ozzie Smith the Wizard? … I miss the Rally Monkey … Sad to hear Fay Vincent is retiring. He’s been a fantastic commissioner! … The Uptons are the most talented brother duo since Ellis and Bobby Valentine … Watch out for the Expos this year! ------------------------- Black Larry King will be providing thoughts throughout the upcoming season.  In the meantime, you can follow him on Twitter at @BlackLarryKing.
