Time flies, haven’t seen this pic in years! Anna is now 20 and a junior in college, my son Ben is 17 and a senior in HS. He made me rethink and ask myself many times why we decided to have a second child! :oops: Boys are crazy!

This pic is at the Whitewater Center in Charlotte when it was new, we lived 5 or 6 minutes from there.

He is my mini-me twin!

I know. It seems like yesterday I was graduating from high school and playing in my final travel ball season. Now, my sister is at Bloomsburg University as a freshman, not playing softball. It feels weird her not playing. Did Anna do her intramural sport yet and what did she choose? I'm doing mine and picked field hockey.

Anna’s strictly schoolwork, labs, and studying now, no sports anymore for her! 😭 It was one really fantastic run but it’s over!

I'm kinda jealous your team is still playing baseball and mine isn't. At least I can hang on to some hope with the Phillies because we were in first for I think it was like two months.
And actually one more positive...if we had a bullpen, we would have easily won the East. They have
so many holes, but a reliable closer is sooooo important and would have gotten us in the playoffs the past 2 years
if you look at the numbers.. Then they need to tackle some other issues

Not only would a new bullpen help but also if we got someone to sure up the back end of the rotation, and some better defense I think we really could have ran away with the East. I think if I was Bryce, I'd be so mad.

bullpen was the easiest fix and the most glaring issue...thats why i mentioned that first. any capable reliever, and we make playoffs 2 years now.
But yeah, but who do we have with Nola after last year...he went from a number 1 to who knows anymore. We dont
even have a good number 2 right now...plus a 5 guy. hoping Nola pulls it together, then we have Wheeler, Nola, Gibson, Efflin...and we def need a quality guy just in case Nola doesnt realize how to pitch again.
Then a SS like Story, so it kills 2 birds with one stone. ss and middle bat
