I am leaving Tampa for a vacation this morning, and will be gone for about two weeks. I’ll only be without Internet access until Thursday night, which means I’ll be missing the big Cubs series. I’ll get to New Smyrna Beach on Thursday, but until then I’ll have to get my updates over the phone from others with access to information. I’ll have no Internet or cable TV until then.
In other news that more people should be reporting, Rocco Baldelli played designated hitter in a minor league game last night, going 13 with 2 RBI as he works back up towards the Major Leagues. He has been recovering from a rare mitochondrial condition that has probably been a source of his recurring injuries in recent years. He’s still only 26 years old, which gives him a little time to become productive. Just ask Rick Ankiel and Josh Hamilton.
I’ll be out soon, so until I get back to the blog, go Rays.
