Back from San Jose then seven hours later hit the road and now Im in Vierra Florida. Im going to see the Brevard guys again for about the 700th time this season. They're semi-local so at least it makes sense. The trade deadline came and went for me quietly which is a nice relief (I dont have to travel anywhere thank god). The manny trade was good for a couple of my players. Josh Bell has one less roadblock to the show while Sean Danielson has one less OF to worry about now that Brandon Moss is gone. Hopefully both guys make the most of their opportunity (I know they will)
Spent three quality days with Darren in SF. I enjoyed helping him get setup out there. It's one of those things that doesnt come with the job description but it's important to adapt with what the job brings you. We went to the local mall where someone in the Giants team store recognized him. He signed a ball for the guy and that was that. It's an interesting experience watching someone grow up and become "known" right in front of your eyes. Darren is a long way away from celebrity but this is one of those awkward first steps. Enjoy anonymity while it lasts, once it's gone it's gone for good.
Tired as hell which is to be expected. Im a walking zombie. Ill update again when I can with hopefully a better story or five. Anything worth doing is worth doing right.
