Been insanely busy these past two weeks. Players signing, players getting called up, scouting, the season ending, fall leagues beginning, traveling etc... I was in Huntsville,Melbourne, and Tallahassee to end my regular season. Jeremy Jeffress was named the Brewers minor league pitcher of the year as earlier noted and this Friday I am going to see Luke Montz play in the big leagues. Stephen Chapman spent a few days with me in south Florida which was terrific and I finally got two days "off" (spent at home). Congrats to Steve Clevenger who was on the fsl champion Daytona cubs.
Booking my flights to the winter meetings and the Arizona fall league.... going to push myself to buy the book "The Road" and am very very very happy/devastated that the final, or what seems to be, the final Mitch Hedberg album was released today. I had the pleasure of meeting Mitch and his wife while I was in college and I have to say, without him, I probably never would have ever tried stand up comedy in college. I am thankful I had a chance to tell him in person before it was too late.
And to everybody who takes this blog way too seriously, relax and who cares? If you dont like whats here, obviously stop reading. I still cant believe anybody would take the time to take me to task for anything thats on here. Either you like me or you dont, you like whats here or you dont. This is for me and if anyone is following the parade thats their choice. Just try not to waste any time over me in cyberspace, it's insanity to me. There are bigger things in the world than a rushed together agent blog, like global warming, the election, and the war for starters. Here is my political social commentary of the year, then Im stopping because thats not what Im here for, but if people are going to complain about me, Id rather it be for something that matters. Courtesy of the good Doctor.
"He knew who I was, at that time, because I had a reputation as a writer. I knew he was part of the Bush dynasty. But he was nothing, he offered nothing, and he promised nothing. He had no humor. He was insignificant in every way and consequently I didn't pay much attention to him. But when he passed out in my bathtub, then I noticed him. I'd been in another room, talking to the bright people. I had to have him taken away." -on meeting George W Bush at Thompson's Super Bowl party in Houston in 1974
