    I would guess that more than half the people there ( there weren't many) were Jays fans. Nice that the attendance is so low, we were able to sit anywhere. For today's game and tomorrows, the total cost of my tickets was $22.11. ..$15 tonight (senior special every Thurs) and a promo every Friday from 7-Eleven...3rd deck tickets for $7.11. Of course, I won't be sitting in the 3rd deck. Gotta love it I hope they never leave the Trop.
    Will be at the Dunedin games on Sat and Sun.
    Sounds like a pretty damn good retirement life!

    I expected him to be at Lansing. Maybe there are some things they want him to work on.

    Something's going on with Pentecost. Saturday he homers, Sunday has a double and looks good in both games. Dunedin goes on a road trip for a week and he is assigned to Vancouver. If he was hurt, they could just put him on the DL. Extended spring games start today and I'm wondering if he will finally be catching and then they can reassign him later. Will post later if I hear any news.

    Palacios played today...only saw one at bat since I spent most of the time at the other diamond watching Gurriel. Gurriel drove a line shot double into the right field corner in his first at bat and just jogged into second.. I think he's nursing a hammy injury. No sign of Pentecost , so I asked a gentleman, who looked like a coach, about him and he wasn't sure but the guy next to him said that they kept him back from the road trip to get more work and would catch tomorrow before being reinstated next week. I didn't realize at first but that guy was Pat Hentgen. Never know who you'll see at the complex. Will report on Pentecost tomorrow.

    Btw, Reggie Pruitt is really fast... scored from first on a single when the outfielder bobbled the ball. Also a Mitch Nay (remember him) sighting...hit one to the warning track.

    Score never lets facts get in the way of a good story. They got the info from Scott Carson's Twitter though.

    Early game today at complex. Couldn't stay long..have to pick up my girlfriend at the airport.
    Pentecost was catching and looked good behind the plate. Pat Borders, Ernie Whitt and Pat Hentgen with a watchful eye on the proceedings. Hope to see him catching when the baby Jays return next week. Will keep you posted.

    This is extremely encouraging in terms of maintaining his prospect status. Did he have any chance to show off his arm?

    I was only there a couple of innings but he rifled the ball to 2nd after the warm up pitches. Good accurate throws.

    From a friend who stayed to watch the rest of the game this morning-

    Pentecost threw out a runner stealing second easily and handled everything behind the plate flawlessly. Meanwhile Gurriel played 3rd on the other diamond and my friend was impressed that he ranged to his right on a slow roller, looked the runner back and still threw out the guy at first. He also hit a deep HR to left after 2 doubles yesterday...one to each field. I am excited about this kid. Off day tomorrow. Will be at the Dunedin game on Monday.

    That Jays From Away guy is pretty good. Wish I could take photos like him.

    Thanks for the Pentecost and Palacios updates, Spats! Info on Extended can be very hard to come by - Gil Kim usually responds to my texts and/or emails, but he was quiet on this one.
