Writing the Book (15 Dec 08)

I’m pressed for time this morning, so we’ll be quick. Work and various other commitments kept me from writing at all during the week, so it was another 20-hour weekend. Really, with enough coffee, almost anything is possible.

Oh, and I’m sporting a sweet mullet these days. Think of a cross between Barry Gibb and Larry Fine. Did I just ruin your day with that visual? Good.

It’ll all come off once the book is done. That’s pretty good incentive to keep writing, methinks.

Where was I? Ah, yes, the book. I plowed through more of the prospects chapter. It’s approaching 40 pages and I haven’t even gotten to the pitchers yet. I’m hoping I’ll have more time to work on stuff during the week and maybe finish this chapter by the end of next weekend. That would be nice, because there’s a lot more to do in other areas.

What else? Speaking of prospects, Peter Friberg and Ben Davey (Padman from Friar Forecast) have published their top prospect lists over at MadFriars.com.

And I’ve penned a little something over at Baseball Digest Daily about former big-leaguer Cliff Johnson. There isn’t much of a Padres connection, except that the article was inspired by Russell Branyan. And Johnson was kind of like Gene Tenace, I guess, if you want to keep it old school.

Okay, I think that’s it. Why do I feel like I’m missing something? Oh well, I usually feel like that. The house hasn’t burned down, though, so I think we’re good.

For now…

    I say we put together a Ducksnorts Ownership Group!

    I’ll pitch in $20! now we just need 9,999,999 more people to do the same!

  3. Rob Neyer has a piece on how good Peavy is and how much of that could be Petco Park:


  4. 2: I will pledge twice your ante for a very small piece of ownership in the Padres.

    OK, we are down to 9.999.998. Come on, people.
