A bit of History

So back in 2004 and 2005 I used to post here regularly.  My own views on what was going on, predictions, ramblings, etc.  It was fun.  Yet, as life got stressful, busy, and confusing, I put this blog behind for a while.  This year I'm back at it for no other reason than to write and record for myself - but if you happen to stumble upon the blog that first (on draft day) predicted Jacoby would be starting within 3 years of draft day then I hope you enjoy.

Pitchers and catchers report

This will be my baseball card for the year... I'm slated as the number 5 starter behind Mats, Schilling, and Beckett, and Wakefield... though some people are predicting that this may be one of the years that a rookie starter has an under 3 era and 20 wins and wins the mvp and wins the cy young and and and... okay and I'm dreaming.

Is this the longest offseason or what?

But hey in interesting news - Jonathan Papelbon attended David Wrights Second Annual "Do The Wright Thing" Gala, a benefit to provide financial support and raise awareness for multiple sclerosis and children's causes.

Even though I'm a Sox fan ... I sit here (with my David Wright poster above my Red Sox sheet covered bed) and can tell you I would honestly go to that to see Wright over Papelbon. :-)

Not a time to Gripe

There seems to be a resounding sound coming from those around me; that is, everyone seems to think I’m miserable because the Sox will not be in the postseason for the first time since 2002. What people still don’t seem to get is that this is not what’s upsetting me.

Rather, what disturbs and discourages me is the attitude people have that not making the postseason is the end of the world, that the whole point is winning, that what matters is being the best in the world. Instead of seeing that baseball is about playing, learning, growing, accepting, striving, overcoming, and being the best you can be as people and players, not just in the standings.

This is how I see it. This is why I love the game. :-)
