Wednesday’s Workout Day

In 2005, I had the best of both words. I got to sit back
and enjoy and reap all the benefits. This year is a little different. Hopefully,
I’ll be participating and doing stuff to put runs on the board or make plays in
the field. This year, I can partake first-hand instead of sitting back and
watching.

It’s weird. I think that after you celebrate with all the
excitement we had last night, you tend to get carried away congratulating
everyone. It’s crazy how quick it goes. But I think everyone was emotionally
drained.

Guys were sitting around talking on the plane, and it was
a lot of fun. Usually our flights consist of guys playing cards or listening to
their Ipods or listening to music.

I got a bunch of text messages from my family and
friends. I won’t throw out the number because I don’t want to brag and make
anybody feel bad. But it was awesome. The ones I enjoyed best were from my friends
back home and the guys I played with in the past. They gave me a hard time and
said I didn’t need to dive to catch that final out. All the guys I played with
at the University of Arizona
who know the game, they were saying things like, ‘Quit timing it, Edmonds.’

When I caught it, I knew we had two outs and either me or
Jermaine Dye, one of us was going to lay out for that ball. I’m glad I got the opportunity
to make the catch.

They are all supporting us, and it shows us a lot.
Through the ups and downs we had, and it was a frustrating season, at times, for
them to come together, it really helped us pull through.

Tampa Bay
is going to play their game and we will play ours. It’s going to be a competitive
series, but it should be fun to watch.
