So, this is what 2;30 am in Australia looks like, the coffee will be in high demand today. Its game three in the series and let hope we can get out with a much-needed win. Jake Peavy had the mound pass today, and fingers crossed he is well rested and ready to go. Gordon Beckham is on the 15 day disabled list as of April 12. Weather is STILL an issue with it being very cold and rain.

Settle back, get some coffee and lets play ball

Addison just turned the lights out and locked the door to the mound office. A very much-needed win today. Jake looked amazing, after that first pitch home run, Jake settled down and went to work.  Ok, kids it’s time to pack the bag again and grab the passport because we are heading north to Toronto Canada, for a four game series with the Blue Jays and then its straight home for a three game series with the Minnesota Twins, then the Indians come for a visit on home turf for three games and finally closing out the home stand is a four game series with the Tampa Bay Rays before a well deserved day off.

See you on the field in Toronto
