A cool and drizzly night at the Astros Spring Training ballpark in Kissimmee.Carlos Pena hit a two run HR in the first inning off Dillon Gee. I think Gee's struggles continue this spring. There are better writers out there to describe the rest of the game. Look at The only other highlight I will mention is the triple by Matt Dan Dekker. Love triples.

Spring Training 2013

Getting ready for a mini-spring training trip. I say "mini" because in the past I would go for 8 full days and catch nine games. But, moving back to Tampa has changed that. Here is my itinerary for next week's trip.

3/20: Mets at Astros (night game?)
3/21: Cards @ Mets
3/22: Mets @ Marlins (night game)
3/23: Nats @ Mets
3/24: Tigers @ Mets (ss)

That's it. Five days, five games. Counting last week's trip to Clearwater to see the Rays take on the Phillies and the Rays final Spring Training game at the Trop, that will be seven Spring Training games for 2013. I will post photos and updates as the week goes on. I do need to get the truck into the shop before I go to get the A/C checked out before I leave or it is going to be a miserable trip. The weather is mild this week, but I know that as soon as next week rolls around it will be hot.
