Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Baseball Blues


As much as I hate to admit it, I think Shaugnessy has a point here... Not much hope left for my BoSox this season, with all of the injuries and lack of depth/breadth in all areas (bench, bullpen, pitching, etc.). At least we finally got rid of some dead weight by shipping Wells off to San Diego. Good riddance!


In other baseball news, I learned yesterday that recent Red Sox call-up Dustin Pedroia is a Woodland native and also just happened to ride the shuttle to the River Cats game last night with a woman who knows his mother, Debbie Pedroia. Small world, no?

And the Cats came from behind to win their last game of the season at Raley Field, 7-3 against the Tucson Sidewinders. A couple of home runs gave the Cats the lead, and the franchise set a minor league attendance record for the 7th straight year (i.e. the entire life of the franchise). Not bad...

With stats like that and a great venue like Raley Field, who needs the Kings anyway??!!

VOTE NO ON Q & R - A downtown arena is a great idea for Sacramento, but the current deal on the table (and on the ballot) isn't the way to accomplish this goal. Stop the Arena Tax!
