Grady will not be going to the WBC after all. I was not sure how to feel when I heard the news today. I actually read the news. I was looking at my iPod in class (bad me) and read the headline saying Sizemore was not going to the WBC and I said, probably too loud, “He’s not?” I read the whole article and while I am disappointed that he is not going I ma happy that he will betaking cae of himself and making sure he does not get worse before the regular season. I know he is very disappointed; you can see his press conference and read the article here and see what I mean. My response (inside this time) was “Poor baby!” when I read the whole article. Grady rarely gets hurt so this is not common and I guess I knew it was only a matter of time before he did get hurt. I am just glad this is just Spring Training.
Speaking of Grady I forgot to mention yesterday that he stole his first base of the “season” in yesterday’s game. This stolen base was actually one of Grady’s signs that he should not go to the WBC. So to commemorate this event here is this:
The Indians and Padres are playing as I write this and the Indians are winning 5-2 after a 3 RBI/2 home run day for Victor Martinez. Ryan Garko debuted in the outfield today as well. He made a somewhat difficult catch I suppose with the sun and all. Overall I guess he did a fine job in left field and he says he feels okay, which is important.We are having a pretty good day; hopefully we can pull out a win for the first time today. Bud Black just got hit with a flying bat! Scary. Another highlight of the day: I got to see David Eckstein play today as well! That was exciting.
My mom wants me to tell everyone that she sent me an awesome care package the other day. And I must say I agree. It was the day before Spring Training started and she sent a package full of baseball movies (where I got Major League), peanuts, cotton candy, Big League Choo (Chew), Cracker Jack, and sunflower seeds. It was a very good package. I also got Indians earrings and a keychain.
