Jupiter Florida Spring Training 2013

INTERVIEW WITH ADRON CHAMBERS

As my dad and I head down to Florida at the end of March for Spring Training I am reminded how much baseball can change in one year.  Last March I interviewed Adron Chamber when he played for the St. Louis Cardinals, he got called up during the post season for the series against the Dodgers.  During the off season things changed for Adron who is now a member of the Houston Astro’s, but of course my question were never really about baseball but more about Adron as a person and I found out a lot of cool things about the 27-year-old Pensacola, Florida native.

INTERVIEW WITH CASEY JANSSEN

This was an interview that I did with Toronto Blue Jays relief pitcher Casey Janssen.  It ended up being aired on MLB.com / Cut 4.  It was really cool because this time I met Casey at the hotel when the Blue Jays were playing the Yankees in New York.   This was different from some of my other interviews because I got to see how the team travelled.

INTERVIEW WITH LEFTY SPECIALIST CRAIG BRESLOW

Craig Breslow is a pitcher for the Boston Red Sox.   He throws left-handed, and is considered a lefty specialist.  This year he has faced more right-handed hitters (98 plate appearances) than lefties (74) and actually has posted reverse splits (.225 vs. righties, .309 vs. lefties). Only one of each has taken him deep this season. With runners in scoring position, he has allowed just one extra-base hit in 43 plate appearances.  Breslow a graduate of Yale University was given the nickname “smartest man in baseball” by Minneapolis Star Tribune Twins writer La Velle E. Neal III.  Breslow helped lead the team and the bullpen deep into the playoffs and eventually the World Series.  I had the opportunity to sit down with Craig and ask him a couple of questions that weren’t all about statistics and more about his personal life.
