Tonights game, NL vs. MCC

We beat Manatee College in our last warm up game coming up to the exhibitions against the MLB teams march 3-5. We won 4-0, our pitching staff only surrendering 2 hits, both coming in the 7th inning. The offence put up 4 quick ones in the first 2 innings, then cruised the rest of the way. We now inter squad and practice for 6 days until we face off against the Pittsburgh Pirates march 3. My wife should be joining me march first as my 'guest' by MLB, and I'm looking forward to that, not that Martijn is a bad roommate, he's a great one, it's just I can't wait to see my Shorty.

Here's a couple shots of tonights' pregame...

Bert Blyleven and me. Bert should be in the hall of fame (we actually talked about it to extent today) but hasn't been voted in yet. He's a great pitching coach and had taught me quite a bit in the week we've been here. He's 5th on the all time MLB strikeout list, has 60 career shutouts and is now the Minnesota Twins Colour commentator

Martijn Meeuwis here catching in the pen, and despite being cut from the final roster, is coming along with the team to Puerto Rico as our "bullpen catcher" but is also sticking with the team in case of any injury to a position player in pre-WBC practices and games.
