Is this thing on?
So evidently, blogs don’t update themselves. You have to go and do it yourself. You learn something new every day.
Since it’s been a month since Lisa or I have touched this thing, I could write forever…but I won’t. We’ve been travelling all over the Minors lately, covering All-Star Games and regular games. Just since that last post at the SAL All-Star Game, here’s a list of locales and events we’ve covered:
Little Rock, AR — Texas League ASG (Lisa)
Salem, Va. — California/Carolina League ASG (Lisa)
Pittsburgh, Pa. — Futures Game (Lisa and Jonathan!)
Toledo, Ohio — Triple-A ASG (Lisa)
Altoona, Pa. — Eastern League ASG (Jonathan)
Akron, Ohio — ATM video shoot (watch it next Wednesday — Jonathan)
I was just in Akron a few days ago. My first time to Canal Park. It’s a nice one, though it could use some updating. And I got to see Adam Miller pitch, a treat in and of itself.
The main reason I finally got back to the blog here is I want to plug someone else’s blog. And he’s likely to be a heck of a lot more active then we’ve been. Giants prospect Kevin Frandsen just started his own personal blog, Frannie on the Farm. He’s been up and down, riding the Fresno-San Fran shuttle and should give a lot of insights into what it’s like for a prospect on the cusp of making it to the bigs. So check it out and leave him some comments.
OK, I’m out. Be sure to listen to Around the Minors today on MLB Radio at 12 p.m. ET. We’ve got PCL prez Branch Rickey to talk about the Triple-A Championship Game and Reds first-round pick Drew Stubbs.
