                          It was a chilly Friday night at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park in beautiful downtown Durham, NC but the ink was flowing from my Sharpie! For those members that are keeping score at home, the "legendary grapher" from Durham was not in attendance due to tax season. All of us are receiving a reprieve until April 15!

                          I concentrated on the Bulls pregame and the Knights post-game.

                          Pregame festivities were:
                          Jaff Decker 3/9
                          Dylan Floro 4/4
                          Luke Maile 3/3
                          Mikie Mahtook 2/2 No death stare this time! LOL
                          Jhan Marinez 4/4
                          Richie Shaffer 3/8
                          ameron Seitzer 2/2
                          Daniel Robertson 3/8
                          Blake Snell 8/8
                          Ozzie Timmons 2/2

                          Post-game autographs
                          Matt Andriese 8/8
                          Phillippe Aumont 5/5
                          Chris Beck 8/8
                          Matt Davidson 1/1
                          Travis Ishikawa 3/8
                          Matt Purke 2/2
                          Hector Sanchez 3/8

                          A total of 64 autographs were acquired tonight. Also the Charlotte Knights continue to be one of the worst signing teams ever although it was somewhat improved from last year's horrific team. Carlos Sanchez did not pick up a Sharpie all night and several other players turned down graphers

                            Today at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park in beautiful downtown Durham, the Bulls had their first autograph session of the season with "select players". The ink was flowing from my Sharpie as well as my wife's Sharpie as she assisted hence the insane numbers. There were fourteen of the players positioned behind seven tables on the right and right center field warning track. All players were signing multiples and you could go through the line as many times as you desired. In fact, I went through the Blake Snell line so many times that I actually became embarrassed. By the way, I know that someone will probably send me a nasty PM because I received several of those last summer from a couple of people but if you have the opportunity to rack on these players, you take advantage of the opportunities. I do not mind the good natured ribbing but some of the PM's were a little bizarre and there was nothing "good natured" about them.

                            Matt Andriese 9/9
                            Dylan Floro 9/9
                            Patrick Leonard 32/32
                            Mikie Mahtook 6/8 He does not sign dupes this year.
                            Kyle McPherson 8/8
                            Richie Shaffer 23/23
                            Blake Snell 40/40

                            After the "select players" team signing, I moved over to the Knights' dugout and had decent luck there.

                            Jason Coats 6/6
                            Richard Dotson 1/3 (Will not sign dupes)
                            Daniel Fields 8/8
                            Erik Johnson 2/5
                            Tommy Kahnle 2/2
                            Vinny Rottino 2/6 He also took two cards!
                            Blake Smith 1/1
                            Chris Volstad 2/2

                              The season is only five days old and I have graphed four of the five days. What a way to start the season! Back to the South Atlantic League tonight to the Greensboro Grasshoppers and Hickory Crawdads in The Boro.

                              Justin Jacome 2/2 (2 for jcq08)
                              Josh Naylor 2/2 (2 for jcq08)
                              Cody Poteet 4/4 (4 for jcq08)
                              Kevin Randle 1/1 (1 for jcq08)

                              Eric Jenkins 1/1
                              Dylan Moore 1/1
                              Dillon Tate 1/1

                              Total 12 autographs but those were the only ones that I was seeking. Everyone signed for everyone tonight! Tate would not sign going out to the field but signed next to the dugout after stretching!

                              Up next...the Salem Red Sox!

                                Tonight it was back to the grind and the first Carolina League game of the season in downtown Winston-Salem as the Salem Red Sox paid their first visit to The Camel City. In all my years of graphing in Winston-Salem, I have never seen as many graphers as tonight including collectors from Virginia and a couple of board members from Charlotte.

                                If you are keeping score at home, it is Andrew Benintendi 1, icee82 0. I was not alone in my despair as he did not really even turn an eye towards any of the graphers on either side of the dugout. I will not be dealing with him tomorrow night as I have bigger things on my agenda but will be plotting a strategy over the next 48 hours to insure success on Saturday night when I have a post game meeting planned with this young prospect. I will not be defeated!

                                The Red Sox were not one of the better signing teams. I can hardly wait until they get to Triple A. Perhaps Benentendi's inflated ego will have suffered a few blows along the way by then and he will be a little more humble. Doubtful but I can certainly hope.

                                I did not need much but here are the meager pickings.

                                Rafael Devers 1/1
                                Joe Oliver 3/4

                                On the Dash side, I only had one card and I nabbed Spencer Adams charting behind the plate.
