Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all. This is a season of giving and sharing, and a great reminder, to me, to not take things for granted. I am blessed to be the husband of a woman who has endured much over the past 22 years. The baseball lifestyle is not nearly as glamorous as it appears, but she handles every challenge with courage and every success with humility and grace. Grateful for 5 kids who know who they are and are beginning to figure out who they want to be (instead of who I want them to be). Honored to be a part of this organization and to be a voice of one of the greatest sports franchises in history. The rich history and tradition have a high calling for anyone involved and this is a responsibility that I take very seriously. Proud of my extended baseball family and miss seeing them. From the players, to the front office, stadium personnel, to the fans, we are all in this thing together and I look forward to taking another run at a Championship in 2015. God Bless and best wishes to you all.

    As someone who has been blessed to be a little bit around a few of the ballplayers and their wives, I concur that it's not as glamorous as it appears. The guys work really hard all the time with very little downtime. I so admire their commitment to their profession and to their spouses. It's not an easy ball to juggle..no pun intended, but it's only raised my admiration for you all. God bless you everyone! Enjoy the off season!!! And see you at Spring Training!
