Good News/ Bad News
So as some of you might have read, I have landed myself on the disabled list, that’s the bad news. The good news is that it is only a blister on my finger that is causing it, and that I will make a start either Thursday or Friday. In my opinion I don’t feel that a trip to the DL is necessary, but it isn’t up to me.
As for everything else, the Curve are playing some pretty good baseball of late. I do not believe that we have lost a series dating back to right before the all-star break when we lost to Bowie. I could be wrong on that though.
We leave for Portland tomorrow, out longest bus trip of the year. I believe just over 10 hours, yikes. However, we are leaving after the game, and we have an off day the next day, so I should get to explore a new town. I have been told that Portland is a great place, and that you can get great lobster. Each of which is good news.
An update on my last outing really quick. I was able to work out of a few jams early, and eventually settle in. The blister on my finger developed during my pre game bullpen, however, I don’t think that it really affected me too much during the game. Despite the 5 walks, I thought I actually threw the ball pretty well. Fortunately I was able to evade too much damage, only surrendering 1 run, and doing just enough to earn a win.
Well that is all for now, I will be back later with an update on Portland. Until then everyone take care.
Hey Daniel…sorry about the blister! I hope it heals soon! In the meantime, enjoy Portland! Mark and I honeymooned on the East Coast and went to a Portland game in May 2007. The stadium is great, and has a replica of the Green Monster! Although we didn’t have lobster in Portland, we can recommend the lobster in the Bearskin Neck area of Rockport, Mass. It’s not that far of a drive and you eat your lobster literally within minutes of the time it’s been brought off the boats.
Hey, did you see that I tagged the photo of you & my husband in Facebook?
Sucks about your thumb man. Keep up the good work though, not every outing can be pretty but a win is a win.
Yes – in Portland, Maine you can get great lobster and all sorts of seafood! (We are know for that here in New England!) Good luck with the thumb and hope you are back in the game soon.
Are you saying you won’t even miss a scheduled start though being on the DL?
If not, maybe putting you there helped with making room on the roster with all the player movements from the recent trades. It must be exciting to see the changes there, including the arrival of Tim Alderson.
In any case, get well soon!
Get well soon…we’ll see you in New Hampshire this weekend! Hope you enjoy your trip to New England! 🙂
Hey, just wanted to say good job last night. Looks like you really had a great night.
Nice, two good outings in a row this deep into the season. Very encouraging. Hopefully you are still having fun playing!
