spring training, day two

TBF and I were up this morning promptly at 7:30, bright-eyed and bushy tailed. We headed over to Tradition Field, the plan being to watch the open workouts and then get back in the car and drive down to Jupiter – split squad playing the Marlins at Roger Dean Stadium.

Rule #1: Don’t go see the split squad on the road. I know you’re all going to write in and tell me that you knew this, but ya know, we didn’t. And it seemed like a good idea at the time, let’s watch David Newhan take four at-bats and let’s watch Lastings Milledge somewhere outside of Shea Stadium, and heck, what’s bad about watching Johnny Maine pitch from seats right behind home plate?

Yeah, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Sitting behind the mesh meant that I couldn’t even really get any good photos. Which is okay, I think, but I like taking baseball photos, I have discovered. I started going through them to see if there was anything worth posting, but not really. (Aside from the photo of TBF with Billy the Marlin, which he will not let me post.)

More, likely on the plane home tomorrow night. Tomorrow day, back to Tradition Field, and the Orioles.

P.S. Chan Ho Park drives a Durango. Shawn Green drives a stylin’ brand new black Lexus LS400 with super-black-tinted windows.
