A few photos from Tuesday night's and Wednesday afternoon's games in Oakland.

Possibly one of the last photos taken of Miguel Sano before his trip to the 15-day DL. Notice the tear in his left trouser leg. Left hamstring injury next time up to bat... coincidence? I think no...

Quick report from Oakland: Sano trying to swipe at that one flyball "triple" by Burns in the second inning didn't look any prettier from a seat right behind the fair-foul pole than it must have from the normal camera view.

In fairness, the A's right fielder (I think it was still Coughlan) returned the favor almost identically, in the fifth as a favor to...

An Unexpected Night At Fenway

Posted by ashburyjohn , 08 July 2015 · 679 views

Community Blog Post
My wife phoned to say someone at work was looking to sell a couple of bleacher tickets at Fenway. So, mere hours later (well, 30 is "mere", no?), I was on the Worcester commuter train, getting off at Yawkey Station.

Fun game versus the Marlins. Tied 1-1 for a long while, then the Sox starter Miley tired at around the 100-pitch mark and the score became 3...

Vacation time in Ft Myers is coming to a close. We had a very fun day at the Twins spring complex today.

We arrived at 10:30 unaware the minor league games had been moved up several hours, presumably in response to the forecast of rain. I started watching the Cedar Rapids game, and then a little bird told me, "you're missing Phil Hughes". I switched over...

Special jetBlue Edition!

We took a break from Hammond Stadium for a day, and visited the Red Sox spring facilities for a game.

Before we went inside, we wandered in their minor league area. I was initially annoyed, because we went in what I thought to be an obvious direction but...

Today we skipped the major league game and spent our morning and afternoon on the back fields. But only after watching some of the major leaguers doing drills on the front field. Looked like they were concentrating on the pitchers making their throws to bases - I wonder if the snafus in yesterday's game had anything to do with that. :)

Had a nice chat th...

We allowed ourselves the luxury of arriving sometime after 11, and learned that the minor leaguers would not play at noon but at 1. Since we had cheap-seat tickets for the big league game, we chatted outside the park with Thrylos then went on in. Tomorrow we'll stay outside and watch the prospects again.

Warm day, starting out overcast but changing to pa...
