MINOR LEAGUE CAMP

Bill Lumbergh: Milt, we're gonna need to go ahead and move you downstairs into storage B. We have some new people coming in, and we need all the space we can get. So if you could just go ahead and pack up your stuff and move it down there, that would be terrific, OK?
Milton Waddams: Excuse me, I believe you have my stapler...

Yesterday I was called into our manager's office and told that I would be packing up my stuff and heading over to Minor League Camp. First I wanted to thank everyone that has sent me messages over the last few days wishing me luck in Portland and saying they are sorry to see that I didn't make the team. I appreciate the letters and good luck wishes.

As much as I wanted to make the big league club out of Spring Training I had a pretty good idea that there wasn't a great chance of that happening. Lets face it, the last two years I have done nothing to earn that shot. It is going to take more than a good Spring Training to be back to where I want to be, but it was definitely a good start and I feel like I am back on the right track again. I am really looking forward to getting up to Portland and starting the season. This is the best I have felt in a baseball uniform in a few years and that is always a good feeling. Right now we have about six days left of Spring Training before I pack up my car once again and begin the twenty hour drive up the California coast for Portland, Oregon. The next few days will be spent getting everything prepared for the start of a new season. Lets get it going.

  1. Again man, I'm sorry that you got sent down. Keep that head up, and you'll keep destroying the ball in AAA. I bet you're the starting 2B of the Padres in mid-July.

  2. Wow, you're going to have your car here, now you will finally get to experience not pumping your own gas! We also passed a law while you were away, gas attendants can no longer top-off filling your car, so don't worry about gas getting on your car.

    Hey drive safe and if you are taking Highway 101 up, drive exactly the speed limit through Reedsport, Or, it is a giant speed trap from end to end. They pull over out of state license plates for going +3 MPH over the limit.

  3. I'm so sorry, Matt. True fans will follow you, no matter what league you play in. You'll do go in the Minors. Soon, you'll be back in the Majors in no time.

    Nothing says you can't force their hand though. That gig in San Diego is yours for the taking. Please take it.
