One small step at a time in the blog world

For the blog readers that responded to some of my recent blogs, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Now that we have two obstacles removed — how I post them and how you answer them — the next step is for the blogger (that be me) to figure how to respond to your responses.

You really can teach old dogs new tricks, but it is difficult to teach someone who grew up using a typewriter (remember those?) all the ins and outs of this high-tech world of ours.

With any luck, I will figure it out sometime today — probably later today as this is a day off for the Mariners and a little white ball with “Titleist” on the side wants to be hit around the desert. And who am I to refuse such a request.

However, late last night I finished my off-day story on Ken Griffey Jr., discussing what lies ahead as he moves from designated hitter to left field sometime during the next week. He has played just eight innings at that position during his Hall of Fame career, and has some interesting observations, as does manager Don Wakamatsu.

The story should be posted on the Mariners Web site sometime this afternoon (PT) or early evening.

Have a good day and be chattin’ later.

Sorry Jim, i meant Thanks Jim,for your response to us as blog readers who respond to some of your recent blogs and insights too. Thank you Jim.and keep them coming.

It is most pleasant for us blog readers to receive some notice — makes us feel as though we are a part of the process.

I rely on you for news, tidbits, and insights. I think there are a lot of us out here who do that.

Yes, thank you Jim for taking the time to acknowledge us fans?you would be surprised (or maybe you wouldn?t be) at how many sports writers completely ignore us little people…another 2 hits for my guy Shelton. What in the world are they going to do with Sweeney, Shelton & Branyan (plus The Kid will also be a DH, so throw him in there)? Help Jim!!!
