    Attended the Pawtucket Red Sox (Red Sox AAA) annual "Hot Stove" party yesterday.

    The team, as always, does a great job with the event...free hot dogs, soda, and snacks, opportunity to buy tickets and merchandise, Q&A with players and management. The event was very busy this year, but the team's staff did a great job of keeping it organized and keeping everyone moving.

    There were four players and a coach there signing - Hitting coach Dave Joppie, top prospects Jackie Bradley Jr and Allen Webster, and Justin Henry and Dan Butler, who should be on the Pawsox this year.

    I got autographs of all but Butler (I didn't have a card of him), but the two from Henry bled (my fault...glossy cards I forgot to powder).

    The autos of the other three look great, though:

    Jackie Bradley Jr. (SCAN1) (SCAN2)

    Allen Webster (SCAN1) (SCAN2)

    Dave Joppie (SCAN)

    Tommy Davis
    Orestes Destrade
    Chris Hammond
    Willie Horton

    -Didn't do as well as in years past, a lot of the regulars didnt show up, the gates opened later than usual, some of the players were late, they switched the clubhouse they usually use to get dressed and by the time we realized we were on the "wrong" side, the "right" side was packed, and I couldnt stay to graph after the game and in the parking lot. Sad this was the last year though.

    Nice going J.P. As for the Machado, even if it's not as viewable as possible, it can't be worse than some of those Vladdy Guerrero "offical" autos back in the 90s. My dog writes better with a crayon in his mouth.

    I also "won" an 8x10 canvas of Marlins Park on Opening Day just for spinning the roulette, I almost landed on "Winner", and the girl was like: "You just missed the tshirt", I was like: "are you kidding me?!. I got it signed by Ruggiano, McKeon, Hatcher, Cishek, and Turner, and plan to add more sigs to it.

    I went in as my friend's guest on their VIP season tickets holder event, which was supossed to have a special autographs session. But of course, being the Marlins, they managed to screw this up too. After free breakfast, they had a question/answer session with the entire coaching staff, afterwards they separated us into two groups for two different autograph sessions, but you could only attend one, (of course, Tino Martinez didn't go to my side ) , we had Redmond, Pierre, Hechavarria, Skipworth, Jennings, Espada, and Leary. Right after we get out, we start heading to the open to the public sessions, and realize that their first set of autographs sessions was almost over, who was signing there? Andre Dawson, Tony Perez, and Jeff Conine. So for the few season tickets holders that they have left, the "VIP" event, they sent two minor leaguers, two players on the active roster, the manager and two coaches, and for the general public they had two HOFers and Mr. Marlins- genius

    Last night I attended the Mercer University First Pitch Classic in Macon. The special guest speaker was Dale Murphy (in previous years they've had Chipper Jones and John Smoltz). He is simply a nice guy. Prior to the dinner he had an autograph session. It was supposed to last one hour (like it did with Jones and Smoltz). However he was yakking it up so much that he went over by more than thirty minutes. His speech was fun too; telling stories about his early struggles, Bobby Cox and some of his team mates before taking a few questions from the crowd. The funniest moment was when a kid (about twelve or thirteen) asked if he thought he could still hit homeruns like he used to. He coyly said, "Yes." I was able to get a few words in by helping him remind the crowd him that Cox had come from the Yankees organization prior to being hired by Ted Turner to manage the Braves in '78 and that it was Joey Devine who gave up a grand slam in his first Major League appearance.
    If I had only spent a tenth of the time studying Physics that I spent learning Star Wars and Baseball trivia, I would have won the Nobel Prize.

    Also there were two late additions...Dick Drago and Glenn Beckert. I didn't have any thing for them to sign

    Orestes Destrade was a no-show due to a family emergency. Both Dr. Steve Korcheck and Brain Tollberg were also no-shows.
