Well, another Sunday, another entry. Not really too much to report on here in Mesaville, Az, but here’s the rundown….
The last week in baseball out here was pretty mundane. The Mesa Solar Sox posted a very run of the mill 2-3 record. We dropped three straight games to start the week, which wasn’t too smooth. Now, the Fall League certainly isn’t all about our W-L record, but winning is way more fun that losing. Anyway, we finished the week with back-to-back wins… way better. I only pitched in one of the games, at home on Wednesday, against Scottsdale. I came out the the bullpen to throw one inning, as I was slated to go to Surprise on Saturday to participate in the "AFL Rising Stars Showcase". The inning started a little shaky, but I escaped only giving up one hit and one hit batsmen… no serious damage. As for the "Rising Stars" game, I was a fantastic spectator.. I ended up not throwing, but still collected my part of the $500-a-head winners purse ( not too shabby).
In non-AFL news this week, the San Louie Cardinals cleaned house to win the World Series. I wasn’t really pulling for either team, but I was happy to see a buddy of mine, Skip Schumaker, on the Cardinals bench during the whole Series.
Off the field news this week includes the Steelers dropping another game, this time in Oakland….bad news all around. Also, a handful of guys (including myself) went to the theater to see "The Prestige"… one of the best movies Ive seen in a long time, I highly recommend it. That’s all for now… be back in a few.
