Listen up, peeps, this is interesting. There's a guy named Gerardo Parra on this team and he's won the Golden Glove award a bunch of times. When he practices, he uses a small almost toy sized red glove. “If you can make a tough catch with that little thing,” Williams (3rd base coach) said, “imagine how much confidence you have when you put your full-sized regular glove on and go track down a ball.” Parra was nice enough to buy some of these little red gloves (at about 70$ a pop) for some of his teammates and they didn't even try them. Parra's a Golden Glove award winner and they don't even TRY to use his generous gift? Let's face it. There are some fools on this team. I don't predict they'll go far.
On a somewhat connected note, I took the day off today to have fun with 20 something daughter. At breakfast she asked if we could swing by Artful School to see some of the kids. "I'd really like to get a visual on that little red head," she told me. So of course we trekked over there and she read with Little Red Head and Cute Trouble during Daily 5. Little Red Head was very content to read to 20 Something, but Cute Trouble was having none of it. "Dr. H. is NOT your mom! She's OUR worker," she told 20 something defiantly. We booked out of there pretty quickly, went shopping for some spring blouses, and then caught the Perle Fine exhibit at the Art Museum. Pleasant. I wish I could do it all again tomorrow.
