Leaving work in about 30 minutes to head up to Cheney. I'll be there shooting BP and the game, and whatever else I can get my hands on. If there's any players you'd like me to photograph, send me an email (paul - at - paulmphotography.com). I'm still not sure where I'm going to post pictures, but keep tabs on ProspectInsider, as Jason will be manning the computer...

Churchill's got the rosters up. Feierabend's the OD starter, but I haven't heard the rest of the lineups. Tui at third? Wlad in LF? RF? CF? Clement at C or DH?

I'm excited! I love Cheney, and I love Opening Days!

GS52 will always be my favorite player, even if he's no longer with the M's. Enjoy Dodgerville, George!

Next up -- Official Adopt-a-Players:
  • Adam Moore. 2010, For The WIN!
  • Rich Poythress. Number 2 in the 2009 M's College Bat draft 1-2 punch. A steal at pick #51!

Paul, it must have been a great game! I was thinking about going, but got distracted. I have made plans to go tonight and watch Dickey pitch.

Adopt-A-Players:

 

1. Daniel Robertson, RH - CF, RF, LF, 2B - PCL regular since 2012. Developed by the Padres, MLB time with Angels and Rangers. It's good to finally have him on our side. Not on the 40-man, so he's behind a lot of players, but I still like him.

 

2. Blake Parker,  RH - Co-closer - From the Cubs organization, and rushed to AAA in 2008. First MLB games with Cubs in 2012. Not on 40-man roster so behind Mayckol Guaipe and Jonathan Aro.

 

3. Adrian Sampson, RH - Starter - From  the Pirates organization. AAA since 2014, but his first full year in the PCL. Not on 40-man roster so behind Cody Martin and James Paxton.

I'd LOVE to be there for Dickey's debut. I saw him two years ago, when he still stank. I'd like to get that smell out of my brain.

And get shots of him like I got of Feierabend (awaiting upload on my computer at home)...

Hey, that shot of Balentien is pretty darn good. The composition is great! What lens were you using?

Tell you what, I swap you a killer shot of Ichiro that I took at ST for one of Feierabend in his delivery!

It's my favorite of the pre-game shots. I love the comp and the color (I cropped it just a tad for uploading here). I had the 400mm f/3.5 on the monopod. That turned out to be TOO much zoom for the batters at bat (as was the 300mm f/2.8 really) but I had my D1H with 80-200 f/2.8 for those shots.

I'm sure that can be arranged. Churchill was sitting with me, giving me an assignment to catch the ball coming right out of his hands, and I think I got at least one or two. That's actually a tough thing to do...
