Left handed pitcher Jeff Francis - the Colorado Rockies - I know him! And he pitched game 1.

I love it that we have a Single-A baseball club in our town. When you do, you can meet the guys, and get close to them, before they make it up to the big leagues.

Another one of our guys, Ubaldo Jimenez, will start the game tomorrow. In fact, he's treating a friend of mine, her husband, and their two children to game 4 -- and 5 if needed.

Former Oaks at World Series: P Jeff Francis, P Ubaldo Jimnez, P Ryan Speier, OF Ryan Spilborghs and Jeff Baker.

Go OaKS!....um, I mean....GO ROCKIES!

(I know, I know - we lost Game 1)
