A Break from the Books

This has been me for the last two
weeks.  I have pretty much failed
at blogging, but until June 11, school is my priority and it’s been eating up
my time lately.  I promise to write
more regularly now; finals still await, but things are starting to slow down
and I can finally pay some more attention to my blog.  I also promise to stop boring you with the details of my
academic life. 

 

But, disclaimer aside, I am wondering:
where has this season gone? 
There’s still a lot of ground to cover, but we’re practically two months
in! An oversimplified, quick look at what’s happened so far:

 

-The Marlins and Mariners found their
respective ways back to the cellar (or at least very close to it.)  My beloved Ken Griffey, Jr. found his
way to the “Who’s Not” list in Sports Illustrated.  Go figure.


-Raul Ibañez is having a career year.  I can’t wait to vote for him repeatedly for the All-Star game and see what else he does this year.

 

-There have been some terrific arguments
and ejections.  I’m sure there have
been plenty that I’ve missed, but Zambrano was ejected this afternoon and there
were some choice words exchanged between Ron Gardenhire and the umpires during
Sunday night’s Twins vs. Brewers game. 
Please don’t tell me I’m the only one who loves watching a good baseball
fight (extra points if the benches are cleared).

 

-Steve Phillips now stars in his own Baseball
Tonight commercial which is nowhere near the greatness of the Peter Gammons and
Buster Olney spots.  He’s supposed
to get me to watch that show?

 

I’m almost embarrassed to post this…it’s
fairly devoid of interesting baseball information.  But stay tuned. 
Later this week I’ll be asking for the help of my fellow bloggers as I
prepare for an epic baseball adventure with my father, and I’ve been cooking up
some fun ideas for the summer.  Until then, I will settle for enjoying tonight’s Boston vs. Minnesota game.
