More Football than Baseball

Welcome back,

After a full week out here in Arizona, I wish I had more than just one at bat to tell you about.  Unfortunately, that is not the case.  In the second to last game of the regular season in Corpus Christi I tweaked my hamstring a little bit.  It was reaggrivated the other day and I had to come out of my first game here after just three innings.  I don’t think that it is a very serious injury though, and hope to be back on the field within the next couple of days.  Since then, most of my days have been spent getting treatment and rehabbing so that I can be healthy as soon as possible.

It’s been a tough first week for the Scorpions.  We have won just one game so far, but that doesn’t mean that we haven’t done a lot of very good things on the field.  Many of the players have turned in very good performances in our first seven games.  We have been in almost every game right down to the end, but we just haven’t been able to pull out many wins.  When you have a group of about 40 players coming together from five different organizations it is hard to develop team chemistry in just a few days.  I have a feeling that very shortly we will develop more of an identity as a team and therefore start winning on a much more regular basis.  You can see the players from the five teams mixing more than a week ago.  During our first couple of practices our stretch circle was clearly segregated into seperate organizations.  By now everyone has gotten more comfortable around each other and is interacting as if they’ve known eachother for much longer than a week.  I think that things like that are  good signs that we are becoming a team, so hopefully that will result in more wins.

The day to day schedule here is different than during the regular season.  With so many day games I have found myself with more free time in the evening.  My roommate, Sergio Perez, brought his Playstation 3 out here with him and we have been going head to head in Madden Football almost every day.  I don’t think I’ve played a video game since Super Nintendo but since we started playing I’m a perfect 5-0 aginst Sergio.  He is not very happy about that.

That about sums up this past week.  Keep your fingers crossed that next week brings more success in real life baseball than in video game football.

See you later,

Brian Bogusevic

    Thanks for the post. I was wondering why you haven’t seen much action. I hope you can get the injury behind you soon enough to get some ABs. Do you read these comments at all?

    Looking forward to your next post,

    Thanks for your lastest post. Like Trevor, I was also wondering what had happened to you. Hope you can get back on the field soon. FYI, the reason I’m following your performance in the AFL is that you’re on my fantasy team. When you switched from pitching to outfielder this summer, I began to take notice. After only about two weeks after you made the switch, I picked you up in my league. Anyone that can post an OPS of near 1.000 in AA can be on my team anytime. Maybe in a future post you can tell us what the transistion from pitcher to outfielder has been like. Good luck the rest of season. Kevin

    Thanks for the blog Brian. Yeah I was disappointed to here that you were having injury issues. It looks like you’ve bounced back though going 2 for 4 in your first game back. Nice work. Great to see Astros raking in the AFL. You and a bunch of the others are tearing it up. Like bigkahuna712 I would also like to know what your transition is like. What do you enjoy most pitching or playing outfield? Well looking forward to your next blog.
