Continuing to Enjoy Myself

Hello all. Josh Reddick here again reporting from Scottsdale Arizona. As you can see by our teams record we are still struggling quite a bit. But all in all we are enjoying ourselves even though we are losing. Like ive said before, this is a great team with tons of great guys. We all get along and have a great team chemistry.

As for myself, I seem to be having a hard time adjusting to the better pitching here. I’m just trying to take it one day at a time just to see how that goes. I did get to warm up pitchers between innings for the last two days. That was something totally different! But it was fun for me.

One thing I want to add is one of our guys on the team who always keeps us in a positive mood. Kevin Fransden is a great guy not only because he has been in the big leagues but he is always in a good mood. He is one of those guys who is serious during the game but as soon as we are in the clubhouse he is talking to everybody and making us laugh. We all need a guy like that on our team because he has had the experience and can keep us laughing.

 

As for the questions. I grew up loving the Atlanta Braves. Chipper Jones was a favorite but i mostly admired Ken Griffey Jr. They both played the game the way it should be. Hard and with heart

Hey Josh,

I’m enjoying reading your blog. I write this online column on the Sox every week or two for a website called redsoxconnection.com. I was wondering if you might be interested in granting an interview. If so, you can check out the site and find my e-mail address. My name is Justin.

Thanks.

Hey Josh,
Just wanted to say keep up the good work and keep working hard man. i worked for South Georgia College’s Baseball team in 2006 when you all won the championship down there for Middle Georgia. Lived in Boston my whole life and was pumped when we drafted ya. Followed you ever since you got drafted and been telling my friends to watch out for ya…

see ya at fenway…

hi josh, thanks for answering my question. i finally got to see griffey jr play this year, albeit he’s a bit removed from his glory days.. i think you and i are about the same age and i remember him in the same light as you do, playing “hard and with heart” and just being the coolest player out there. but my favorite was a somewhat under-lauded pitcher named Jimmy Key.
what do your days consist of down there? i imagine you get some serious baseball time day to day, but what else do you and the other guys find yourselves up to?
