Well, that was some opening day. Am I right? I loved all the games I did get to catch. I being a Ranger fan am glad I missed last night’s game. No one likes to see their team get shutout. So after all this baseball watching I have a few concerns.
Jon Lester and the No Pick Off Move.
Now, don’t get me wrong Lester is a great pitcher but according to ESPN broadcast. Lester has not really had a pick off move since 2011. Come on Jon, you are in the NL now where small ball is king. The base runners are going to figure out that they can run on you. Oh and if you’re on base and Lester is on the mound. RUN!
New York Yankees Infield:
I watched the infield yesterday make what I would call careless errors. One might argue with me that its just one game. True. but I hold the New York Yankees to the highest of baseball standards and they were not in the infield yesterday for sure.
No l’m Not in Love with San Diego Padres.
I have been watching the baseball news and reading baseball stories about all the trades the San Diego Padres have done. I need more proof that all these moves are going to work. People are calling general manager A.J. Preller a genius He is only a genius if it works, and the fact that he was trained by Jon Daniels scares me.
Happy Opening Day!. Twitter has this phrase all over and I just love it. Opening day should be treated like a holiday. I am very excited I have my day of television planned out If you are one of the lucky ones who gets to go to the stadium today. I am super jealous but also I have a few tips to make your day easier and fun. Some Do’s and Don’ts I learned working in the promotions department for the Texas Rangers
Do: Take the promotion. If you really don’t want it, give it to someone else. Believe me there are people who want 50 calendars.
Don’t: Ask a promo person to give a child a promo with an alcohol ad on it. We are not allowed. Sorry those are the rules
Do: Check your ticket to make sure you have the correct time and date.
Don’t: Yell at the promo people. If you have a problem go to Guest Services.
Do: Get to the ballpark early. You can pass the new security measures and watch the ballplayers warm up. Promotions run out quickly so you can be sure to score one.
Don’t: Tackle a promo person for a promo. You will get one I promise. Now back off!
Do: Smile. You are about to spend some time watching America’s Pastime. Yes, traffic and parking are a nightmare but you are here now. Enjoy it!
Don’t: Be afraid to ask questions we will help you anyway we can.
