For twelve glorious days this March, I'm going to leave behind the windchill of Nebraska and bask in the baseball-filled warmth of Phoenix, AZ. I'll be spending a good amount of my time around Phoenix Municipal Stadium, the home of the green and gold for six weeks every spring.
As you may have expected, I'll be splitting my time equally between watching baseball and writing about baseball. Of course, that's an oversimplification, as I'll probably need to find some time to eat, sleep and stop by Mill Avenue in Tempe.
I'll also be toting along my brand new camera to the games. In my highly scientific estimation, it's somewhere around a thousand times better than my old one. Hopefully my new and improved shots of Rich Harden will be the first of many we'll see of him on the mound in 2007. Here's what he looked like in March of 2006:
If you're going to be in the Phoenix area between March 6th and 17th, drop me a line. I'm always up for shooting the breeze about any and all things baseball.
And for those of you expecting something more... sabermetric from me, I'll be back with some fancy pictures and numbers in a couple days. Until then, I'll send you back to your regularly scheduled programming of the stylings of Ken Arneson.
