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!
