Blah Blah Blah

So life hasn't been too blog friendly lately... Since moving to the bullpen last week, Internet on my computer has been terrible, opportunities to take pictures have been nil, and games have been hard to follow from the telescopic view of the pen. My week which used to consist of 5 distinctly different days has now turned into a damn mush of the same thing every day (not too different than the now famous pb and j sandwiches). I went from starting one game every five days to throwing one to two innings every three to four days. I know it is for my own protection, but I didn't know that it would play on my sanity. But in all seriousness things aren't too bad, they're just more boring. I no longer have my nature runs or my charting to tell you about, now all I have to go off of is bullpen chatter (almost all of which is not suitable for the Internet). So, I find myself still without internet, typing this blog on a recently downloaded app (which needs a few improvements) for my iPhone, telling you about practically nothing. Is this what my blog has come to? Rest assured, no matter how boring the rest of the summer is, I will be blogging about it.

  2. Hey Eric, Mom/Aunt Char's buddy Robin here...spent a week with Gary Adams (30 season UCLA coach) who knew of you and had high praises!! He was also the UCI coach for 5 seasons before that..but I bet you knew that! How's that for bullpen chatter!

  4. Hi Eric -- I'm glad you'll keep on blogging. We like to hear from you! Keep up the fight, you're on top of the stats at the moment- for the league!! And your mom and dad will break up the monotony next week, when they arrive. They are excited!! We try not to miss any games now, because we never know when you'll be put in. You have lots of fans in CA!!!

  9. FROM THATBALLSOUTAHERE.COM - A PHILLIES BLOG SITE.

    So you’ll probably recall me gushing over Eric Pettis last week, awarding him high honors and basically just filling up this space with chants of mindless praise. Which, if you read this blog, is about 50% of what it is anyway, except for the times when it is chants of mindless hostility.
    But the official site of the New York-Penn League is giving an equal volcano of joyous compliments. He’s being carefully shifted out to the bullpen, after starting for Williamsport for the first half and going 4-0 with a 1.16 ERA in five games. The Phillies, no doubt, have spotted the illustrious arm and are looking to slightly close the window of opportunity for injuries to sneak in
