Looks like there was a bug in the ordering system or some people cancelled.....last time it took 6 days for my order...this time only 5 days. Best regards, David

I miss baseball.......

We were planning a trip to Fenway this summer - depending on when the season starts and how many home games each team gets, may have to pass on our annual baseball vacation. Crossing fingers that it doesn't come to that. While I think Fenway is one of the worst stadiums to see a game in - it is still a classic place to see a game. And I know my son was looking forward to the trip!

Feeling like Syndegaard and Sale made the right call to get Tommy John surgery. They may miss this season, but how many games will that actually entail?? Just think if Ohtani had made the decision to have the surgery last year - could have ended up only missing one season.....Hindsight is always 20/20.

Missed watching the games in San Francisco or my favorite Japanese restaurant! Best regards, David

Hear you on restaurants - we are missing going out to our favorite places locally for sure! And there were (still hoping it is are, and the trip happens) a couple of places in Boston that I couldn't wait to go back to.

But kids are probably getting tried of staying indoors......but on the flip side......those Piazza delivery to your door keep them in a good mood. About time for me to order a Medium Round table combo piazza with a small side salad...I always request additional red chili package and cheese package with my order........I use the red chili on piazza....in my tuna sandwich....and in my devil egg sandwich.....gives it a little kick! The Parmesan package...I use when ... I made spaghetti and I use them on the portion that I'm currently eating......lefted over ketchup packs from mcd.....use it on my hash browns.......Best regards, David PS tips for the single guy!

The child is definitely starting to get stir crazy. Fortunately the weather has been pretty good the past couple days, so we are outside hitting off the tee or soft toss, doing some footwork and agility drills and of course throwing the baseball around.

We hit the local pizza joint for a pie and some mozz sticks on Saturday - they have a drive thru, so minimal contact opportunity.

Baseball for tonight -- 7pm on ESPN -- Ripken Jr., Game 2131.

Watched 1987 WS Game 7 a couple nights ago -- Twins/Cardinals -- good guys win!

Hearing rumors of MLB coming back in May with an all Arizona schedule. Not sure how it would work out - but anything positive is a plus right now.

Made me wonder - what will be the next sport we see played?? Baseball? Hockey? Basketball? Or do we have to wait until football season kicks off.

Today was supposed to be Jackie Robinson day around the majors. One of my favorite days of the season - everyone wearing the #42. Was even more fun when Mariano Rivera (last person to have the number) was just out there wearing his normal number.

Still hoping they open in June....maybe play 100 games. Best regards, David

I hope so to!! A summer without baseball isn't really summer in my book!

Different note - get well soon to Trey Mancini of the Orioles. Diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer.
