I returned to the lineup since my last post, and things are coming along. My swing is coming along. I’m just another bat in the lineup. Rocco is back, too. Now that we’ve got the lineup back together, I think we’re going to keep producing just like we did in Kansas City. I’m just so happy to be back. And I think we’re going to keep finding a way to win.
It’s good that everything seems to be coming together on the team. Our pitching has been tremendous lately. And the best part is, everybody is having fun. If we keep doing that we’re going to win a lot of games.
I also have to say something about Mexico winning its first World Cup game on Sunday, since I spent so much time here blogging about playing for Mexico during our run at the World Baseball Classic. I’m pulling for them every day. Yesterday, everyone saw me celebrating the first goal. I stretched that day and then saw the end of the game. Mexico’s next game is Friday against Angola.
Anyway, so far so good, and hopefully my fans will keep writing.
Here are a couple of AP photos below worth mentioning. The first one is me meeting our new first-round Draft pick, Evan Longoria.
The photo below is me breaking a bat. That was in the ninth inning on Saturday, and even though I’m only holding a bat handle, the ball made it to left field for my fourth hit that day.
