Well as all you guys know by now Spring Training has started and it has been
a little while since I have written a blog. Yes, I have been pretty busy and I am tired when I get home but that's no excuse (haha). Anyway, Spring Training has gone great so far. I have had a blast seeing all the guys and meeting all the new guys this year, we really have a great bunch of guys this year and I'm super excited to get these games rolling so we can get this season under way. The first couple days of camp we did the normal stuff: you know physicals and all the running tests and all that stuff, to see if we were all ready coming into spring. After the Spring Training speech from Manny we finally got to the playing part of the game, which all of us do best. Some of the guys that I have been talking to and hanging out with on and off the field are Luke Montz, Jordan Zimmermann, John Lannan, Ryan Zimmerman, Nick Johnson, Mike O'Conner, Joel Hanrahan, Tyler Clippard, Ian Desmond, Clint Everts, Brian Peacock, Devin Ivany, Fast Eddie, and Bailey (Lannan's dog). I mean there's more but hey, I can't list everyone on the roster. This Spring really has a different feel to it. There is a lot more energy and just different attitudes going around, everyone here belives that we are a good team and that last year is over and that we are going to win this year. It's an awesome feeling to be a part of this camp. Some of the other things going on around here is just a lot of media stuff. Next week we start games so that's another thing to look forward too. Besides that, everything else right now is going real smooth, my arm feels great and it's really great to see that this whole team is healthy and ready to start this 2009 year off with a bang. Also it's great to see all the fans out here. I mean there has been a lot of people coming everyday, even in this freezing cold weather ( 45 degrees haha). Also if you haven't filled out your Oscar poll: you have 'til tomorrow to do it. I will be keeping up with this every 2 to 3 days, no more going 2 weeks without blogging. Also, check out this thing I did with Ron Jon Surf Shop the other day, it was pretty fun to do.
