The weather here in NY over the past few days has been wonderful. It actually was in the low 70’s…but not for long. High’s in the upper 30’s are expected over the upcoming days but I don’t care. You see, it’s baseball season and all in my world is good. As a matter of fact, my wife and I are going to Shea Stadium on April 9th to see the Marlins and the Mets. It’s been a long time since I went to a game this early in the season, even better the opening home weekend. I’ll have plenty of pictures to add to the photo album and I’m sure some funny stories. The two times I went to Shea last year we had a blast and I can expect the same. Looks like we’re getting the D-Train in that game!
We’re opening up in Houston today and I really don’t know what to expect from this team. I have high hopes but the Fish aren’t expected to do much this year so a .500 record would be a blesssing. Dontrelle pitches in the opener and I hope he worked on whatever was ailing him in the World Baseball Classic as he was just off in a big way. I’ve decided to cut this one short as it’s about 2am EST and my eyes are hurting and my mind is crossed between the reality of writing this blog and the rather large piece of toast that is chasing me in my back yard. Sooooo, anyway…..
