OK, it has been a few days since I last made an entry. I haven’t had ready access to the Internet and I guess I haven’t had a lot to say. OK, I’ll admit it, I ALWAYS have a LOT to say … LOL
Nothing overly exciting has happened since I last posted. I am still getting up early, although I have slept in well past 5AM a few times. Work is good, keeping busy. Baseball is good as well, keeping very busy there as well.
We have been outside a few times with the Peewee’s. We have some talent on the club, that’s for sure. There are also a couple of players who are currently coming out that if they continue to come out during try-outs they will be QUICKLY cut. One thing that I have learned over the years is NOT to over estimate players. I made those mistakes BIG TIME way back in 2001. What an awful year of baseball that was. At least it was a learning experience and I don’t make those mistakes any longer. I think that I have also become a bit harder-lined, if I did choose a player who wasn’t working out, I think I would release him. I think we’ll have a good core of players, we will have a few weaker ones of course, that always happens. Pitching might be an issue – not sure, haven’t really looked at pitchers yet.
We have an indoor workout tomorrow (Friday). It is supposed to be crappy weather in the evening so I figured an indoor workout might be a good idea. I think that I will take a look at some pitchers and see what, if anything, they have to offer.
Saturday will be busy too. I am getting the oil changed on the Grand Prix at 8AM and then have to zip off to bingo @ 9:30AM. After that I have to go to Toronto for dinner and I really don’t feel like doing that, however, I’ll be a team player, this time anyway …
I will be meeting with DV on Sunday to discuss coaches and do uniform stuff for baseball. I am definitely taking on a much more active role in baseball this year than I EVER have before – I hope that I don’t burn out from it … Should be fine, the pre-season stuff is nearly over.
Well, just about time to officially start my day. Enjoy yours.
