Well we are finally back home, and it is for only three days. Surprise, surprise it is raining here in Altoona. We did get our game in tonight, but it also reained the entire game. Its getting to be pretty ridiculous how much it rains here.
Tomorrow we have a double header against Akron, the first game features a match up of Brad Lincoln versus Jake Westbrook. That should be a fun one to watch.
We have also arrived at another favorite time of yearof mine in terms of sports. College baseball playoffs. The two teams I will be pulling for this year are the Clemson Tigers of course, and the Florida Gators. My pitching coach from college is now the head coach there and so I wish him the best. College baseball is played with so much passion and energy that it is hard not to love watching it.
The last topic for today is going to be my last outing. The best word I can think to describe it is erratic. My stuff was pretty good for the most part, but my command just wasn’t very good. This led to alot of strike outs and alot of walks. The hits came too, but there weren’t that many of them that were hit well. A couple ground balls with eyes, and a few bloop singles. The hardest hit balls of the night both went for lineouts to the second baseman.
One mroe final note, how bout Randy Johnson, still doing it. He had to wait through a couple rain delays that lasted for several hours, but he did get win number 300. At this point its just another notch on his belt of a hall of fame career, but good for him.
Well that is all for today guys, my next outing will be in New Brittain, and I will probably have another post sometime around then. So until then, take care.
