Okay, I know it has been a long time but it has been a very busy month.
The team is off to a tough start so luckily (at this point) there are still over 120 games left to turn things around. A couple of years ago Trenton started something like 0-11 and 4-20, something like that and they went on to win the Eastern League Championship. The moral of the story is that it’s not too late to get things turned around, but things need to start turning quickly.
On a positive note, the new video and sound system at Metro Bank Park have been very well received by the fans. The new boardwalk isn’t ready just quite yet, but should be ready sometime in early to mid May, which should create quite the buzz. There are updated pics here.
We finally get back to town this weekend after the longest road trip of the season, eight days and seven games. And there are some big doings this weekend but none bigger than the 23rd annual UCP/Senators Sports Memorabilia auction. This auction has raised over $1,000,000 during its first 22 years! Come on on out this Saturday, there’s bound to be something you’ll find interesting!
Back to baseball, not a whole lot has gone right which means once it finally does, things are going to go wild for a couple of weeks. This team is too talented to play like this for very long.
How about Jordan Zimmermann? Two starts in the big leagues for the former Senator and two wins. He is going to be sensational in the Bigs.
Well I’m about 15 minutes from airtime tonight in Akron so I better get going. Lets hope for a “W” tonight, eh?
Good luck to the Nats! It’s been a tough, tough start to the season.
