Today was our first day at Spring Training after arriving from Pittsburgh this morning. I'm down with 2 die-hard Pirates fans, one is a casual follower of the minors and the other is just focused on the major league team. But both are true Pirates fans, which makes the event interesting. I'm not surrounded by "prospect guys" so it's fun to give them a taste of what is coming from the system -- I usually stop when I see their eyes start to glaze over.
Normally coming from Pittsburgh in March means you are escaping 30 degree weather, but the weather in Pittsburgh right now (mid 70's) is just as nice as here (mid 80's). No matter...I'm not working my day job, I'm absorbing major and minor league baseball, eating great food, and playing golf. Life does not suck right now.
