OK, OK, OK
Sorry I haven’t posted since Thursday. Friday, I took my family to the air and water show. The team was in Oakland over the weekend (and I was still angry about Friday night) and yesterday, I played in the annual charity golf tournament for the Deicke Eye Center in Wheaton. Dr. Tracy Williams, one of our eye doctors, hosts a tournament each summer to raise funds for his center. Ed Farmer and Hawk Harrelson captain two teams and we play 27 holes. It’s a long, fun day.
By the time I battled traffic down 355 and up 55, I didn’t get to the ballpark until the second inning (so credit the runs to me).
Joe Crede begins anoher rehab stint in Charlotte tonight, so let’s all hope for the best as far as his back is concerned.
First round pick Gordon Beckham is hitting .636 (7-11) with a double, home run, four RBI and four runs scored in his first three games at Class A Kannapolis.
If ever anyone wanted to compliment KW and our baseball ops department, today would have been the day … first, we beat Gio Gonzalez (how can you trade him) in Oakland Sunday, then return home to handle Seattle’s Jarrod Washburn with Carlos Quentin homering to extend his league lead.
Anyone mention it? Maybe, just maybe, they have a clue.
