    very relaxing, no pressure games, just pure baseball, good showcase for prospects. And no pink hat know nothing fans. Very knowledgeable crowd. Everyone there knows the roster and our prospects, and are excited to get Remdawg’s autograph. No dumb questions like “did he want to do that?” — when a Red Sox player strikes out. I heard that one recently at Fenway. Also heard, “why is that wall so high?” None of that silliness at JetBlue Park.

    I’ve always wanted to go, even back to Winter Haven days.

    Ever? You have about 60 years left to go.

    Back then it was really laid back. I have heard stories about Spring Training at other facilities back then where you had a lot of access to players and it was soooo cheap. Today, everything is a revenue stream that they need to maximize.

    The amount of young celebrities dying from drug use lately. I feel like I've been seeing way to many "accidental overdoses". Latest casualty was the rapper Juice WRLD, who just turned 21 this week. It is just so sad to see people younger than me (I'm 25) or even around the same age as me, such as Mac Miller passing away.

    Being my own boss for 5 years was really great.

    Now I have a boss who can't get along with literally anyone else in the company because he's a shit head. He has the social skills of a rabid goose. I'm getting the feeling that holding out for him to retire/get fired isn't going to be a pleasurable experience.
