It's 10:00 am. To most of you, this would be a mid morning coffee break. To me it represents a success. For minor leaguers on the road you have to count it a victory to be out of bed before noon. It's not so much that we're a lazy bunch of people, it's simply that when you don't have anything to get out of bed for, you can stay horizontal for a long long time. We are stuck in a hotel, in a foreign town, without a car, without much money, and (for some of us) with splitting headaches...not sure why.

We get finished with our game the night before at around 10 pm. We shower up and get out of the locker room while our hair is still wet just so we can get the most out of those few precious hours of "me" time before we have to go to bed. It's usually around 1 am when we cash it in for the night, meaning a 10 am wake up call should be no problem. With the promise of hot coffee and a blueberry muffin I was, in fact, no problem.
