Random Stuff

  • I turned my Twins calendar to the new month today (yeah, I know the month is almost a week old, but that's kind of how I am -- a late calendar turner), and Mr. February is....

    Luis Castillo.

    I almost forgot about him -- well not quite. I do miss him, but I was happy to see that he signed an extention with the Mets.

  • Speaking of the Mets, it looks like Johan will be wearing his usual number 57 for them. I don't know why I thought he would wear a different number, but I did. I suppose he has an attachment to the number, good luck or something, but I was just hoping that he'd keep #57 his Twins number. Silly me.

    But I'll bet he'll be happy to meet up with his buddy Luis in spring training.

  • Speaking of spring training, it's only 10 days away. I'm very happy that the season is getting close. I bet a lot of the guys are already down in Florida getting ready. Good for them, because it's supposed to get super-cold again this weekend (not that any of them actually live here).

    God, I wish I was traveling to Florida.

  • Speaking of traveling to Florida, I had to chuckle at one of LaVelle's recent blog entries where he says:

    "It’s time to lay low as much as possible until Feb. 16 when the 60-hour work weeks begin in Fort Myers, Fla."

    Poor guy. He has to go in Florida. In February. To watch baseball.

    Actually, I wouldn't want the routine of being a sports beat writer. Too much traveling, days that are too long, and too much responsibility. So in a way, I'm glad it's him and not me. Then again -- Florida, February, baseball.

That's all I have for now.

I'd love to get the heck out of here and go watch baseball. Maybe laVelle would like to switch with me and go be a receptionist in a doctor's office and deal with cranky sick people. :-)

I have that calendar too. It's ridiculous. The July/August Hunter/Santana double whammy should be particularly painful. Can't wait.
