Four Days Off

August 4, 2008

Scott Patterson’s former stomping grounds…

I’ll be in Lancaster, PA for the next four days, so I’m not sure what I’ll be able to add to the blog in that timeframe.  I’ll do what I can, but it might be pretty limited.

FANswers will continue either during my “break” (and it’s not really a break, I’m covering AL games over here) or when the team returns home.

Regardless, I’ll be back at the ballpark in Trenton on Friday.
