Here we go Again!!!

On my flight to Spring Training this year I couldnt help but chuckle a few times thinking about some of the stuff that I used to say when I was a really young player just starting out in professional baseball. The first time that I have to repeat a level I am going to shut it down. My personal favorite was If I am not in the Big Leagues by the time I am 30 then I will retire for sure! Now fortunately I had enough sense not to really say these things to other people but they definitely rattled around in my head. Well I went to Double A twice and I have been in Triple A since August of 2003 and I am still playing so that statement is out of the window. Obviously the title of my Blog suggest that my other statement is null and void as well. I continue to play because I love this game and I really do think that I can contribute to a Major League team. Honestly it is really that simple. So yeah, here we go again on another six month journey, who knows where it will take me. One thing I do know is that I am going to ride this thing until the wheels fall off!!

Hey good luck Bobby! I’m sure you will do well this year. I saw you got to play in new Yankee stadium. I’ll bet that was fun. Keep hittin’ ‘em hard and you’ll be fine. P.S. 30 isn’t that old(look at Moyer.)

Hey good luck bobby! I hope you make it to the majors soon, you have the skill lets just hope that some teams will notice it more then they have

Bobby, Good luck man! You keep pushin’, you’ll make it soon. Loving the game is all that really matters. Baseball is the greatest game ever played and at least your lucky enough to be at the level you’re at now. Again, good luck brotha!

Good luck this season and hope to see you in Chicago. I see you’re a golf nut too. How often do you get to play during the season and what are you’re favorite courses around Des Moines?

Good luck on getting up to the majors this year. I saw somewhere that a couple of days ago the Cubs had you in Chicago ready to DL Ramirez, but he said that he felt good so you got sent back to Iowa. That sure must suck and again, good luck on getting up to the majors this year!

One thing I do know that you were taught never to be a quitter. But you also have something within you (God given) that makes you a winner, fighter and a hard woker. I have been praying for you to make it to the “Bigs”. If it is God’s will, it is going to happen. And when it does, thank Him. Good luck.

You made it! you got your first big league hit and made GREAT play at second! congrats! your really good, how were you stuck in the minors that long? well, i guess it doesn’t matter now cause we definitely accept you in chicago if you keep playing well. once again, congrats!
