Rick Burleson Interview

The Angels’ blog Three Days of Cryin’ has a lengthy interview with former Red Sox and Angels shortstop Rick Burleson. I always knew who Burleson was, of course, but before this interview I really couldn’t tell you much about his career beyond the highlights and lowlights of the teams on which he played, so this was a supremely enjoyable read. Highlights: Burleson’s very centered and reasonable take on the life of a minor league manager and the behind-the-scenes details of what it’s like to suffer a major injury as a player.

Definitely worth your time today.

What was that you said about a slow posting schedule today?  Did your hearing get canceled, or do the ShysterKids not need to eat that much after all? 

Happy Friday!

They’re both looking a little chunky lately, so some starvation would do them good.

Seriously, though: while I’m checking in at the moment, things going live right now may have been written a few hours ago and post-timed.  I’m never proud of myself when I do that, but until someone starts paying me to blog, the job comes first.

Hearing at 3pm.  Frantic preparation ongoing!

3 PM on a Friday?  Will the other guy show up?

Yeah, this one will.  He was the one who picked the time, probably thinking that the state employee wouldn’t show up.

Bonus: he’s a former boss who doesn’t yet know that I’m the state employee who is going to show up.

You should wait outside until 2:59 just to get his hopes up.

Excellent Interview and I had no idea Rick was in my D’Back organization.  Great news.
