Some Notes from Arizona

New, 38 comments

Well I'm sitting in my hotel room in Arizona right now, getting ready to head out to a game this afternoon. Three points.

1) This won't come as a surprise to you, but Matt Wieters is really, really good. He is a cross between Joe Mauer and Mike Piazza. The only things that could hurt him would be injury (always possible) or a really severe case of Young Catcher Stagnation Syndrome (seems unlikely to me).

2) A lot of the players here look tired, going through the motions more or less. The ones with the better work ethics and/or greater reserves of stamina and energy really stand out.

3) Occasionally I get questions about the how the website and the Sportsblog network are doing. The answer is, really well. We have just secured strong venture capital financing which you can read about in the Sports Business Journal.
