One of My Favorite Things

As I’ve written before, one of my favorite things is watching a player start playing and see him climb up the ranks. I first saw Jesse Biddle pitch in his very first professional game in Williamsport. ( you can read the story HERE). Back on that first night he played they had auctioned off the […]

Closing time, every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end

As I was listening to my Sirius XM radio, this song came on the 90’s on 9, it’s Third Eye Blind’s Closing time…it’s the last line of the song and quite apropos for this afternoon. It’s the final game of the disastrous 2012 season for the Phillies. Appropriately, here in Clearwater we are sitting in the […]

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly–Phillies Style

I just don’t know what happened to this season. I don’t. While I never expected the amazing-ness of recreating the 2008 season, I certainly expected that we’d do better than we did.

In just the last few weeks, we’ve seen Freddy […]

Ironically we’ll be the same distance from Brighthouse Field where the Threshers play, but we’ll be coming from the North, instead of the South. I mention this because Dunedin has it’s own Florida State League team, the Dunedin Blue Jays. They […]
