The Last One!

Well as the AFL comes to close so does my season. As I look back on the AFL I can see that I learned alot and fixed things that I have needed to work on. I have met my goals here in learning to control my pitches better and throw more strikes. Now even though my stats don’t show it I feel really good about what I did down here and it will really help me when it comes to Sring Training next year. Now that it is all over back to Oregon I go and home to rest and relax and get ready for Spring Training. So hope all is well with everyone and see you in Spring training.

The End is coming Soon!

Hey everyone back again. Sorry about last week but I was having some problems that i needed to take care of and forgot about the blog. But besides that we are still rolling along in the AFL. We are still wininng alot of games and battling for first place in our division. I have been pitching very well and making all my pitches work for me. Now I know the numbers are not shoiwing it but this is a league to work on things and get better so era and those things don’t matter that much at all. I am getting stronger and a better feel for my piitches as well which is nice. The rest of the mets on the team have been doing really good also. Murphy is still hitting the ball very well and getting alot better at 2nd base with his defense. Josh Thole is hitting alot better and still is doing a great job at catching. Bobby Parnell is still throwing the ball hard and getting people out, while working on things and getting better as a pitcher. Jason Vargas is also doing very well throwing all his pitches and keeping hitters off set and changing speeds, he gets stronger with every outting and looks great.

Besides all of that things have been trucking along and the Arizona life has been alot of fun. I have been hiking around camelback mountain and working out at the gym as well and around this time Arizona is beautiful and the hiking has been alot of fun. Halloween here was a blasts it was a little weird cause I am from Portland, OR and it is never warm during halloween so it was a little change of scenerie for me around that time.

Well I will update you again next week and comments are more than welcome and I will answer any questions too! Bye
