8:30 a.m. EST: OK, now baseball is really getting close. Tuesday marks the day that die hard Red Sox fans anticipate every winter: Truck Day. This year, the Red Sox’ equipment truck, which will be departing at around noon Tuesday to make the 1,480-mile trek to the team’s spring training home in Fort Myers, Fla., features the slogan “Big Things Ahead.” Serving as the unofficial beginning to spring training, Truck Day not only signifies that Opening Day is just around the bend, but it also gives us all a reason to talk a little baseball in the winter. (As if we needed a reason, really.) Fortunately, NESN.com’s live blog is ready to capture this year’s Truck Day in all its glory. Everyone is encouraged throughout the day to slack off a little bit — it’s cool, you have my permission — and send along your two cents. Whether you have questions, ideas, concerns or just feel like getting your thoughts down on the Interweb, feel free to comment in the comments section below. If you’re feeling extra crazy, pop on over to social media. You can send along your thoughts on Twitter @NESN or @TheRickyDoyle, or you can start conversing on NESN’s Facebook page. In order to keep the Twitter convo going, we’re going to be using the hashtag #TruckDay. You’re all encouraged to do the same. It’ll be fun I swear. Now, assuming you already have your cup of java poured, how does everyone feel going into this spring training? Photo via Twitter/@Monaghan21
