Motivation Comes Early

Well it seems as if some people are looking at this thing since i received some comments, therefore I will continue to keep this train rolling. This last week was a long one. I am beginning to put some names to faces instead of "hey man" in the Twins organization. The past week I have been doing a lot of long toss and some bullpen sessions with Kyle Waldrop. I have to say he goes about his work everyday with great intensity(my kinda guy). He has been very patient with my questions about getting to know the system and what the Twins are really looking for out of their pitchers. I have been trying to push myself as much as possible as camp date seems to creep closer. One thing that really caught my eye this week was the Sound FX of the superbowl. With that came maybe one of the most motivational things that I have seen this year. Drew Brees holding his little boy in the middle of the field with tears in his eyes. I thought to myself that must be the greatest feeling in the world. I plan on putting an image of that in my locker and making sure that I am working toward having this kind of heartfelt joy one day. That means when I am tired all I should have to do is have that image flash in my brain. Hey whatever it takes for me to get it done right. PS the weather is starting to have a florida feel to it. Stoked! WHO DAT!!

First Blog

This is the first blog that I have made. I am going to give this a shot and see what happens. It seems like a great way to share my thoughts, activities and pictures with family, friends and whoever else cares to check out what I am doing.
