Pitchers and Catchers: REPORT!!!!!!!!!!

Postby jonnyblack » Sun Feb 15, 2004 12:52 pm

Well, I needed to take a break from all the A-Rod stuff. I will do so, literally. It's time to pack the bags and cash in the vacation time. Look out Arizona, I'm on my way.

First stop, Peoria, Arizona (I'm watching you R. Soriano)

Scottsdale (how's that arm, Schmidty? Nenner?)

Tucson (B. Webb? RJ? Can Willie Harris hit ML Pitching?)

Mesa (Watching Prior is like going to the Ghugenheim. Is Sammy's bat really that slow? How much of a chance will C. Patterson get to shine?)

Tempe (C'mon Kelvim, stop walkin those people. Either be good or don't, I'm tired of this in between stuff)


I don't care if A-Rod and George are "Ruining the game." It's spring training time. A time of hope for all players, teams, coaches, and fans.

And so, gentlemen (and ladies), without further ado: PLAY BALL!!!!!!!! (I've got chills.)

I would love to do a spring training vacation some year. An absolute dream of a lifetime.
Bah, humbug.

Pitchers and catchers report.

Those words are music to my ears. :-)

I agree: PLAY BALL! :-B
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

This is my first year being able to check out spring training. I'm heading down to Tampa to visit a friend who has gets tickets to Legends Field. In four days I'll get to see the Yankees vs. Philly, Toronto and Minnesota at home and we're taking a bus to Ft. Myers to check out NY @ Boston.

Check out practices, too

Don't forget most teams have open practice once everyone reports.

I like that part better than the games. Stay as long as you want and it's free. Plus, very small crowds. Also a great time to get autographs if you're into that.

Living in the Fort Myers area is awesome this time of year.
Once, I saw Nomar in Publix.

I also saw a kid getting the same ball signed by Jeter, Nomar, and A-rod in the same day.

Where do you live? I used to live in Scottsdale (72nd St.) and Tempe (13th St. right by ASU). Ever go to Casey Moore's? I miss sitting out in the Garden drinking beer and shooting oysters ;-)

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
