Sun sets on Jupiter
As I write this, I have a beautiful view from the Roger Dean Stadium of a few clouds at sunset. The second and last equipment truck to St. Louis is pulling out right now. The Cards and Marlins have one more game tomorrow, but I’m heading home in the morning, and I can definitely tell you that the clubhouse is already starting to take on a last-day-of-school kind of feeling. Don’t expect many long at-bats tomorrow.
I don’t have a lot to offer that I didn’t get in my stories today. It’s been a grueling camp, with all the news, but it’s also seemed to go by very quickly in a way. It really does seem like just a few days ago that games started. The decisions have pretty much made themselves in most cases, and I have very few quibbles with how the roster will shake down, given the list of players they started with. It’s going to be an interesting team, whether it’s good or not.
Your faithful correspondent probably won’t blog tomorrow, but Friday in Springfield I’ll have more for you. And of course the opener is coming soon — M. in a tie! — so that’ll definitely be fun.
I leave you with today’s playlist…
Stone Roses: "I Am the Resurrection"
Joy Division: "Atmosphere"
Beck: "Que Onda Guero"
Mike Doughty: "Unsingable Name"
