2018 Trading Deadline


Where did the baseball season go?

Started this site to document my trips to Arizona for Spring Training? Not this year.

First post for Opening Day. Did catch the four games on MLB Network.

And then….

The day job got in the way and before you know it I missed the volunteer work at Nationals Park and the ASG!

This has not been the baseball season I envisioned after the December GM Meetings.

With that said, I am trying to pair down some side work and get back into baseball mode.

So like a great pitching coach, just work with me!
