Bundling Up

Up here in Michigan, the snow has finally fallen, and it didn’t take long to cover the landscape frosty white. It was a record high 65 degrees this month, but things have changed back to normal unfortunately. The kids have been playing in the snow non-stop, and I’ve had to bundle them up before school to keep them warm every day this week. Down in Comstock Park, home of the West Michigan Whitecaps, Fifth-Third Ballpark is bundling up as well. The thermal blankets were put onto the field today, to protect the grass from snow and ice thrown at us the next few months. For me, April 4th can’t come soon enough. Maybe I can just go into hibernation after Christmas

Thermal blankets? Yeah, snow always sounds so romantic to this California girl…until you folks who get real weather start sharing the day to day details of living with it and then I’m thrilled to keep the snow as something I just visit from time to time. :)
I love the blog rennovation! Did MLBlogs finally get a few new backgrounds or is this something of your own design? And I really like the side bar additions…might even steal a few ideas. Keep warm Mike and enjoy yourself as best you can this offseason!

Kristen-I’m not complaining about the weather too much, yet. It can ALWAYS get worse up here! It’s supposed to be in the 50′s this weekend, so it might go away anyway. The theme is new from MLBlogs, and I love it, too! They did a great job with the background and color scheme. Hope both you and Seth have a great Holiday Season.

Winter is really a non event for us here is Southern California so it’s sounds crazy to me to have to put a blanket on your field but I guess that’s what you’ve go to do to protect it.

Yeah, winter is all but here in Michigan. The grounds crew does a great job of taking care of the field. Especially in early April when winter isn’t ready to leave yet…

Observing Baseball

I grew up a Yankee fan, I favor Pitchers whenever possible, I am a stathead, and my dream job is to be a GM for an MLB franchise. In the summer, I go to MLB games and catch baseballs. In the winter, I write about what teams are doing to get better or worse. I try to be positive and unbiased in my writing, but that isn't always possible when evaluating teams truthfully.

This is a very simple game...

You throw the ball. You catch the ball. You hit the ball...Of course, baseball fans know that this line from Bull Durham is far from true, part of the humor of the movie and a huge part of the fun of the game. This blog is a space to talk about baseball, being a baseball fan, all of those things that make the game fun and the Angels, because they make baseball fun for me.
