Didi, Sandra (Mrs. Ducksnorts), and I checked out FriarFest on Saturday. We couldn’t stay long, but it was nice to get out of the house for a while. (The book project is making me completely mental, I must say.)
I’m happy to report that when I threw a pitch in the visitors bullpen, it arrived in the catcher’s mitt without first stopping to bounce in the dirt. I felt proud and somewhat pathetic, all at the same time.
I also lost my cell phone. Big thanks to a gentleman named Scott who found and returned it to me on Sunday. It’s troubling how dependent I’ve become on that device.
Moving onto the main event, what might be in store for third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff? In terms of projecting Kouz’s future performance, I’m inclined to ignore the first six or so weeks of 2007 and chalk it up to an adjustment period that he won’t need to repeat. With that in mind, I’ll set the bar fairly high: 600 PA, .289/.343/.482.
Am I crazy?
