Things continue to move along. I spoke with a St. Louis ESPN affiliate today. Still a very passionate fan base out there and it was pretty cool of them to act as excited as they did about the potential of playing there.
I also wanted to mention something else. For anyone interested please just assume things are happening with Boston without me mentioning it. Theo and I have spoken more than once but there will be no details or updates of these discussions. I am in contact with the Sox and talking.
Received a call from another of the teams on our list yesterday and played phone tag with 2 teams that had made prior inquiries as well.
Funny how things shake out. Shonda is always trying to get me to ‘clean up’, as I’m a collector. I hate throwing things away. Found a stack of papers yesterday, that I didn’t even look at until this morning, and in the stack was all of my notes and documents from the winter of 2003 negotiations with the Sox. I will talk to Theo at some point soon and if he and Mr Lucchino are ok with it I will post the letter the Sox sent to me, ahead of their visit. I think it’s incredibly insightful to the front office and how they approach dealing with players. It’s certainly different than most other teams I’ve played with.
