Back to Work and Loving It!

Greetings from Hadlock Field in Portland Maine!  Today is my first day back in the office full-time and I feel like it’s the first day of school.  I mean that in a positive way, I always loved the first day of school because it was a change.  It feels great to be around the tremendous front office staff of the Portland Sea Dogs and prepare for the 2010 season.

Starting today, my blog will be updated daily until the end of the season.
I thought this week we could travel back in time (not that far) to the 2009 season and re-visit some great moments.
Last year the Sea Dogs had six walk-off victories:

April 10 vs. Connecticut
(Lars Anderson bases-loaded walk)

April 28 vs. Binghamton (Bubba Bell RBI single)

June 3
vs. Binghamton (Ryan Kalish RBI single)

August 23 vs. Harrisburg (Jorge Jimenez RBI
single – 10th inning)

September 4 vs. New Hampshire (Ryan Kalish HR into
the U.S. Cellular Pavilion) 

September 5 vs. New Hampshire (Iggy Suarez
bases-loaded walk)

Quick Hits…Jed Lowrie is undergoing some tests today, he described his condition as feeling like he has been hit by a truck…Clay Buchholz was solid in his Spring Training start on Sunday against the Pirates…Top Prospect Jose Iglesias was optioned to the Portland roster over the weekend bu that does not guarantee he will start the 2010 season with the Sea Dogs.

Opening Day is April 8 at Reading, can’t wait!!!
