Hello again, everyone. I thoroughly enjoyed reading comments on my first blog.
Let me answer some of your questions. Joe_Lisa@hotmail.com, we are looking at about two and a half years before our wine will be ready to be sold. I have a waiting list already, and if you are serious just send an email with your address and we will put you down on the list.
As you all probably know, I have built a vineyard on about three acres and we have Cabernet grapes. It truly has become my passion.
Even though it has become my passion, baseball will always be right there among everything in my life, so let me not lose my focus.
Let’s talk about Interleague Play, which resumes Monday with the second round. I wasn’t a big fan of it when it started but Interleague Play has added in certain areas a very interesting draw. The matches that everybody is watching — such as Mets-Yankees, Cubs-White Sox, St. Louis-Kansas City — are wonderfully obvious attractions. But trying to find a natural matchup with a team like Seattle is very difficult in Interleague Play. It was pretty amazing that last weekend, the Mets drew their largest crowd ever for a three-game series in their history. (Here’s a picture of that catch in the stands by David Wright.)
As far as the National League East goes, I think it will be a horserace to the end. Atlanta has always been able to figure out a way to get there, and the Mets are much improved; and the Marlins with their pitching are going to be right in the hunt.
