Countdown to Opening Day: 19 Days

     OK, so I’ve decided to countdown to Opening Day on my blog, and it is really hard to believe that it is just 19 days until the Padres play their st game of the season on the road versus the Arizona Diamondbacks. I can’t wait, it’s gonna be a season filled with excitement, you and i can be sure of that.
       So now, getting down to business. The Friars are 4-9 in Spring Training. Big deal. Lol it doesn’t really matter. In fact, the Phillies had a 13-19 record in Spring Training last year- and look how they ended up- as NL Champs. In fact, even the Angels (3-8), Pirates (4-8), Rangers (4-8), and Orioles (5-8) have similar records as the Padres. So nothing to worry about. They are just getting their timing down and adjusting to playing ball everyday again.
      I really wish that I could’ve tried to sign up earlier to play some senior league baseball at my local little league, but the teams have already been set up and I wasn’t able to get a spot because I waited too long to try and sign up… oh well. I’ll play in the summer. In the meantime, I think i’m gonna play in a basketball league with some of my friends, so that will be fun.

Padres play today versus the KC Royals at 1:05 PM PT. Clayton Richard and Sean Gallagher are scheduled to pitch today. Also, the OKC Thunder play at 4 PM PT versus the Charlotte Bobcats. Both should be great games.

Also, outsidephillies had my 300th comment on my blog earlier this week! Thanks for checking out my blog outsidephillies and everyone!!!

Have a great day, and God bless.

GO PADRES!!!!!!!!!

GO THUNDER!!!!!!!!!

Not much to blog about

Man, Spring Training is in the thick of things and the Padres are 2-7. No worries, though. They’ve been playing good ball. Everybody will be ready for Opening Day. I don’t really follow Spring Training games closely, you know what I mean? It just isn’t like the regular season. I don’t know about you guys, but I am already ready for Opening Day.

I’m not yet locked into baseball, though. I’m more into basketball right now. But when Opening Day comes around, I am surely going to be in the baseball and basketball mood. 
Matt Antonelli has been a real bright spot for the Padres this Spring. He was a guy who fell off the radar last year, and didn’t hit very well. But now, he’s out of that slump, and could maybe be the Padres future 2nd baseman for years to come. 
That’s about all I have for now. 
God bless!!!
