As mentioned in my last blog, today was definitely an exciting day for me, as I watched Jed Bradley get drafted 15th overall by the Milwaukee Brewers. I just wanted to take a quick moment to say congrats to Jed. It’s nice to see all of the hard work, Ezekiel bread and the Green Goodness finally paid off for you. Best of luck!
I titled my blog ‘Live the dream’ because I think people need to start chasing after their dreams. It’s sort of that ‘you never make the shots you don’t take’ cliche, but I really think it’s true. Sure, this doesn’t mean everyone’s going to win the lottery, and that’s certainly not the point I’m trying to make. However, if you have the tools, the dedication and work ethic to chase after your dreams, you put yourself in a chance to make that come true. Tomorrow, a friend of mine will be doing just that.
Years ago, I volunteered as an assistant coach at my old high school. I worked mainly with pitchers and outfielders, as those were the positions I played and the ones I could assist the best with helping. A former player that I coached is now projected to be a first-round draft pick in tomorrow’s MLB draft. For me, it’s exciting beyond words. To see someone put countless hours in, and finally get a chance to start living their dream, it’s nothing short of inspiring. I just wanted to take a moment and wish the best of luck to Jed Bradley, and I look forward to seeing your major league debut wherever it ends up being.
Word from Tigers beat reporter Jason Beck is that the Tigers have just announced that the Tigers will be placing Brandon Inge on the 15-day disabled list with mono. In the meantime, the Tigers will be calling up catcher Omir Santos from Toledo, who will likely be sent back down once (and if) Magglio Ordonez makes his return to the Tigers which could be as soon as next week Monday. In all likelihood, it would appear that Danny Worth and Don Kelly will split the extra playing time at third base until Inge returns.
