Fisher Cat season kicked off 2 nights ago, and we have 3 games down, and are 3-0. 3solid pitching performances, a 2nd baseman and 2 hole hitter with 7 RBI's and 4 doubles in 3 games.
My soon to be new room mate (replacing the irreplaceable Martijn Meeuwis with Neptunus and the dutch team) is Marc Rzepczynski. Marc and I go way back, we played summer ball together for the Bellingham Bells in the summer of 2004 when we were both young and not nearly as experienced as we are now. Let me tell you some about him. He's a 23 year old lefty from southern Cali, real nice guy, a talker and a guy who doesn't realize how good he can be, well sometimes he does, but gets quickly chopped down by his team mates when is gets to that. He throws 90-92 with movement, and throws strikes. Dirty.
We are close to moving into our new apartment just off the downtown strip in Manchester, New Hampshire. We just need our furniture on Saturday, and are good to move in.
I am waiting to get my Visa approved and get the paperwork to be able to actually play for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. Since I signed to near to the actual seasons start, I need to wait for my visa to be accepted, and then I can play baseball, and get paid. It should be less then a week from now when I am able to play, but you never know, and we will see.
We have 142 games this season, and I am excited to get into games, I think I would have at least 2 outings in by now. From the way I threw in spring training the double A pitching coach wants me to throw almost all submarine, which is fine with me. It's different, but I will take it, and run with it. I've been throwing strikes and despite I, and no other major league guys can throw submarine harder then 84 MPH, I am happy to make the switch, as long as the Blue Jays like it, and I succeed in that role.
Life's aright... just waiting for Shorty to get here, and for life to keep on keeping on.
