Three Weeks Away
Officially three weeks until the home opener and the construction team is hard at work getting everything ready. Our staff generally gets to the office between 8-8:30 a.m. — the construction workers, though, have been getting here well before that. They are working really long days in advance of the season … it’s a race against the clock. To that extent, great progress has already been made, especially with the brick facade that will now cover many of the bare concrete walls inside the park. In the words of owner Andrew Berlin, it will provide a much “homier” feel.
In case you missed it, here is Mark Haley’s second blog post from Spring Training. Usually at this time of year he is 75 percent sure which players are coming to South Bend. This year there has been so much competition for spots that he is only about 50 percent sure. Not a bad problem to have, for the Diamondbacks at least.
Tyler Skaggs had a bounce back outing for the D-Back yesterday. It sounds like he is starting to get a little more comfortable.
If I seem rather scattered, it’s because my 49ers are courting Peyton Manning and I can’t focus. Hopefully that will be resolved soon and I can get on with my life.
Did I mention the home opener is three weeks away? Yikes.
Until next time,
