Baseball Time!

First off, I feel really bad about not blogging for the past few days, so I am really sorry about that. But I have a good excuse: I was really sick. When I was in the mountains last weekend, a bug was starting to go around. First it was a sore throat, then I got the stuffy nose and the coughing going, and finally I got the fever on Wednesday night, and it hung around until Sunday morning. It was a long, hard, weekend. I have never been sick this long before. I usually have the 24-hour-virus thing, but the fever stuck around forever! Anyways, I’m feeling much better now. The cough is still pretty bad, but I am definitely on the road to recovery. Hopefully I won’t have to keep away from blogging like that ever again!

Baseball! In the last week, there have been a lot of tidbits and reports coming out of the Padres camp. Lots of little things, really, but they are all pretty interesting. Kouz had shoulder surgery in the offseason, and he’s almost back to 100%. There’s this dude from Mexico, RHP Walter Silva, who looks like a really good pitcher, who the Padres have in camp this year, and he could get a spot in the rotation. Catcher Henry Blanco finally made it into camp on Friday, but I think we can excuse him because he was with his sick mom. Lots of interesting stuff going on!

I can’t believe the first Spring Training games are this week! I mean, they just reported like a week ago! This offseason really went by so much faster than the last offseason did. It’s so cool to think that I’ll be listening to Padres baseball this weekend! How amazing is that? After this long, dark, hard offseason, we are into the light and hope of spring. It’s going to be so much fun!

Wednesday is the Padres annual charity game against the Mariners (we share the Peroia Sports Complex with Seattle, so there’s a bit of a rivalry there). That game is not broadcast on the radio, even though Jake is starting it :) Our second game is against the Mariners again, and presumably, Chris Young will be starting it. Friday is the Indians, probably Cha Seung Baek starting, and then Saturday is the Royals. I’m not sure who will be starting that one. This is pretty exciting…GO PADRES!!

Hopefully you are feeling better. I look forward to the weather of Arizona when I go down there to see the Tribe later this week. Good luck on Saturday! I saw Cha Seung Beck pitch against us last year and he did pretty well.

It seems like last season just ended. I heard that the first game at Citi Field will actually be a college game instead of the Mets. It just makes me think that baseball is starting for everyone again.

I’m so glad games start this week. What ever happened to Chris Young. Last I heard about him was the Pujols line driver that hit him in the face.

Chris Young is really tall…that’s all I know about him. But Peavy and Baek are good…Baek helped clobber the D-Backs on the fourth of July last year, if I’m not mistaken.

Glad to hear that you’re feeling better, Kaybee. This offseason really did go by fast, but I think it’s because we’re part of this great baseball community. Baseball was on our minds for what– the entire offseason?
