THE DECISION...

Hey guys! The weeks seem to be flying by the last few months. I really can't believe Christmas is only a week away. I still haven't gone shopping yet, but that isn't anything new. When it comes to holiday shopping I rank towards the top of the list of procrastinators. I figure I will let everyone else battle it out for shopping mall parking spots and I'll sneak in the night before Christmas Eve.

I know I've been MIA the last few days when it comes to my blog. I have had a lot of different things on my plate this past week. I'm working out everyday during the week, started hitting and fielding more, and been weighing my options when it comes to free agency.

Over the past week my agent has spoken with a bunch of different clubs about the possibility of me joining their team come February. It really is an interesting experience when you are a free agent and have to weigh different options and ultimately decide where you are going to play. After looking through the potential destinations last night I decided this morning that my best opportunity was to sign with the Washington Nationals. I am really excited for Spring Training to get back to playing again and being a part of their team. It has been a while since I've had the chance to be out on a baseball field and I know it will feel great when I'm able to do it again, especially this time being fully healthy. I've received a lot of emails and messages from Padres fan letting me know they will continue to follow me and cheer for me even though I'm no longer with their organization. I really appreciate that and thank you to everyone that has read my blog or shared a chat or two over the past few years.

Anyways, thanks again to everyone for the good luck wishes. I've got a date at the batting cage in a few minutes so I will talk with everyone soon. Enjoy the weekend!
