Finally brought my camera back out into the wild. Photographed my soon-to-be niece’s 1st birthday. She did not disappoint. Check out the damage she can do to cake!
There has been little interest in signing veteran DH/OF Vladimir Guerrero this offseason. At first glance you see a 37 year old outfielder turned DH who can’t run too well anymore and see why this is a risky player to pick up. When you look deeper you see a 37 year old stud who doesn’t have to run around the outfield anymore and focus on hitting, which he does extremely well. Considering he hit .290 with 13 home runs and 65 RBIs with the Orioles last season. He has hit .318 with 449 home runs across 16 Major League seasons.
This may be a little too close to my heart because he is one of my favorite players of all time, but MLB general mangers are mental to not sign this guy. For those of you non-baseball followers, a career batting average of .318 is damn good! Better than most of the chumps getting all the hype these days…
Poor Vladdy. Would love to have him back on the Angels but they spend millions of dollars on other players in their prime… (Pujols) Can’t get much better than that. Good luck Vlad!
Some people are not too bright…
TUSTIN – A pedestrian has been hit and killed by a train south of the Tustin railroad crossing.
A man was hit by the train after walking underneath the pedestrian crossing on the west side of Red Hill Avenue and stepping onto the tracks in front of a southbound Metrolink train, at least two witnesses told police.
The train engineer hit the brakes after the man was hit, and the train stopped about a quarter of a mile down the tracks toward the Tustin train station, said Sgt. Duane Havourd of the Tustin Police Department. No injuries were reported on the train, he said.
The man’s body came to rest on the opposite side of Red Hill Avenue next to the tracks.
“From all the indications, this is a suicide,” Havourd said, though the investigation is ongoing and no suicide note has been found.
Before the man was hit, he had been walking northbound on Red Hill Avenue toward the train crossing.
The man’s name is not being released pending notification of relatives, officials said.
Train traffic through the area was delayed for several hours the incident, and Red Hill Avenue was temporarily closed from Edinger to Sycamore avenues. Traffic returned to normal about 7 p.m.
The city silenced its train horns May 13 when a quiet zone was enacted at the Tustin crossing. Train engineers sound their horns only when a person or car is on the tracks or in an emergency.
Several people have been killed by trains near the Red Hill crossing in Tustin. The most recent was a Santa Ana man who died after he stepped in front of a train at Red Hill Avenue on Feb. 11.

Heard about blogging from people at work and thought I would check it out. Not sure what exactly I will use it for but I’ll give it a go.
