Opening Day

30 03 2008

Really pumped about tomorrow. It is definitely a different feeling being on the team for the start of the season. Sorry for the lack of updates lately. Trying to get settled into NY. 

Hitting the Road

26 03 2008

After tomorrow’s game we head to Miami to face the Marlins in our last 2 exhibition games. Then it’s on to New York to start the regular season. After all this build up from the offseason to Spring Training it’s finally time to get things going. I hope to keep up on the blog as much as possible during the year. Thanks for the continued support.

Easter Contest Winner

24 03 2008

Just got home and I was about to post saying that I would allow another guess for everyone. But while scrolling through the entries I found someone had gotten it. My favorite Easter treat is when my Mom would make egg salad out of the Easter eggs. So good. So congrats to tarainmadrid for getting it. Good work. You’ll be emailed soon at the email address you provided Goodnight everyone.

Easter Contest

23 03 2008

Just wanted to say happy Easter to everyone. Also had a little contest to throw up there on this special day. I’ll be giving away my game used spring training hat from this year. Signed and inscribed (picture below). First person to guess my favorite Easter treat wins. ONE guess per person. Hope everyone has a great day with friends and family. Good luck!


Evans Blue

I can’t get enough of their newest album, The Pursuit Begins When This Portrayal of Life Ends. Really, really good stuff. I suggest checking it out if you’re into alt rock/hard rock stuff. I was trying to put together a new list of songs I’ve been listening to lately when I realized it’s just been this CD over and over.

WCC in the mix

21 03 2008

I don’t follow the NCAA tournament too closely, but I did notice today that 3 West Coast Conference teams were in it.(St. Marys, Gonzaga, and San Diego) I signed a letter of intent to go to Santa Clara University which is in the WCC. So it’s nice to see them do well.

Pretty cool thing the team is doing by playing an exhibition at Virginia Tech today. I didn’t make the trip because I pitch tomorrow but it would have been a neat thing to participate. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the families of the victims. Be back later.
