I need a mileage allowance

3 03 2011

For  real.

The week so far: Mariners game in Peoria. Dodgers game in Glendale. A’s game in East Phoenix, featuring photo by Marcio Sanchez, one of the best in the business and a guy I know. Giants vs. Diamondbacks game in Scottsdale. And today, spent the morning with the Cleveland Indians in Goodyear.

Also, I got a chance to talk to Portland Timbers owner Merritt Paulson last weekend, and here’s the Q&A I did with him in Casa Grande. He’s an enthusiastic guy who is passionate about his soccer team; nevertheless, I had to give him a bit of a hard time about his other team, the former Portland Beavers of minor-league baseball, who left Portland when no deal could be reached to build a ballpark for them. Paulson was a good sport about it all, and a good interview.

Putting in work, trying to get paid. Here are some photos from yesterday and today.

Cleveland pitcher Justin Masterson vs. the A's on March 2.

Above is Cleveland’s facility. Had never been there until today.
