Off To Arizona

Just a quickie this morning to update two things.

First, in case you missed it, Dustin Ackley was optioned to Tacoma yesterday. Look for Ackley to play daily in Tacoma for about two months as he continues to refine his defensive skills at second base while deftly avoiding MLB service time.

Second, I’ll be in Peoria for spring training tomorrow – look for blog updates all weekend. Here is my tentative schedule:

  • Friday afternoon: In N Out (#1 priority) then Triple-A game, Tacoma vs. Tucson (SD) in Peoria.
  • Friday evening: Meet with Tacoma coaching staff, or Mariners/Dodgers MLB night game in Peoria if Tacoma coaches are working it.
  • Saturday afternoon: Triple-A game, Tacoma at Omaha (KC) in Surprise!
  • Saturday evening: Meet with Tacoma coaches if it didn’t happen on Friday.
  • Sunday daytime: minor league intersquad games and MLB game vs. Texas in Peoria
  • Sunday evening: Open. Check out Talking Stick? CAZ? NCAA Hoops? Salty’s?
  • Monday daytime: Triple-A game, Tacoma vs. Omaha (KC) in Peoria.
  • Monday evening: fly home.

I hope to have details of what I see in the Triple-A games, updates on Tacoma roster possibilities, and amateur photography. Check back over the weekend.

    Back in snowy Wisconsin after 5+ days in Phoenix. Got a chance to attend the Pads-M’s game on Sunday.

    Was a little disappointed my guy Tui wasn’t in the lineup. But did get to see Mike Wilson (’05 Timber Rattler) put the hurt on a ball for a late inning double.

    That & getting my first taste of Sierra Nevada Kellerweis on tap from the fine people on the 1B concourse helped make up for no Tui 🙂

    If you get a chance, I’d check out Salt River Fields. We saw Brewers-Rockies last Friday there. Wow! I like the Peoria Sports Complex just fine, but I thought Camelback Ranch was the crown jewel…until we saw a game at Salt River Fields.

    Have fun Mike!
