Whoa! Too loud – sorry!
And on that note, welcome to the newest feature of the Tacoma Rainiers website: the Mike… Off-Mic blog.
In this space I will be sharing my observations and insights throughout the 2010 season. Once the season begins, I will post daily thoughts regarding the Tacoma Rainiers and the Pacific Coast League. There will be a variety of types of posts: series previews, game analysis, roster moves, updated starting rotations, prospect reports, and some general items from around the PCL and the Seattle Mariners organization.
And since I travel with the team, there will certainly be some “life on the road” items that will come up often. I’ll try to keep those stories funny and interesting, which means no boring complaints about airlines and hotels. That being said, I am sure there will be at least one epic travel-related blow-up post.
I go to spring training on March 28 and the daily posts will begin at that time. Up until then, I will chime in occasionally as the Tacoma Rainiers 2010 opening day roster begins to take shape.
At the start we are going to leave comments open, and I invite you to ask questions or simply comment on posts. There are only two rules: Keep it clean, and be nice (that’s actually one more rule than former Rainiers manager Dan Rohn had for the entire team – his rule, scrawled on a cocktail napkin, was “be on time”).
I’ll try to answer questions when I can. Also, I’ll be collecting questions for a FAQ that will be posted at some future date.
Well, that’s it for now. I’ll try to weigh in with some “names to know for 2010″ early next week.
Thanks for checking out the site!
