Here's another 'few' from this morning. I got some catchers today. I didn't see the bearded dude around, but Tim Mead was leading a group of about 20 Japanese media around (I caught the back of the group). Even yesterday I forgot to mention there were two Japanese media gals there. Pedro Gomez was on site too.
Another initial impression and concern is that John Lackey and before him Troy Percival could be counted on to be a vocal leader of the pitching staff. We don't have that veteran mound mouth now and can't see any one filling the void.
I guess Jeff Mathis is in FL doing his arb thing, so it was just Bobby Wilson and Mike Napoli as the big two catchers. Anyway, here THEY ALL are. (I might not be back up there till next Thursday - besides tomorrow, that's my next opportunity)
