What’s up everybody?  I apologize for not posting for awhile. I’ve been pretty busy and spring training can sure wear you out.  I appreciate all the comments and feedback you guys have given me and I enjoy reading them.  Please feel free to ask any specific questions that you may have about myself or what it is like playing minor league baseball and I will try and address as many as I can.  Since my last post we have been spending some long hours out on the field and in the cages.  This is my third spring training and has been my most successful camp in part to that fact I came in healthy and stayed healthy.  I believe staying healthy is one of the greatest factors to success in this game.  This spring training I was fortunate enough to get called over to play in a couple of our big league team’s spring training games.  It was a lot of fun and is definitely the place you want to be playing as opposed to the minor leagues.  In three days we break camp and I along with several other minor leaguers are flying with the big league team to play in an exhibition game at our Double A and Low A affiliates against the big league team.  I look forward to playing in Dayton, Ohio which is where our Low A team plays.  I never had the opportunity to play there but anyone who has, said nothing but great things about the stadium and their fans.  From there we will be heading to our assigned affiliate to start the season.  Everybody around camp is very ready for spring training to be done so we can get the season rolling.  I have to give a shout out to my good friend Ricky Romero who made the Blue Jays starting rotation this spring.  We were roommates in college for three years and always joke about who was going to get to the big leagues first.  He is a great pitcher and even better person so we are all excited for him. I will get back on here more frequently and let you guys know how things are going.

    cant wait to see you and the other guys in Dayton for the futures game. From what I am hearing you have been crushing the ball with the Bats in spring training…. hopefully you can stay there when the season begins. After what you have done in AA the last two seasons there just doesn’t seem to be much left to prove there for you. Best of luck the rest of the week and I will see you in Dayton.
