GyroBabyIt's been some time since I posted here at Matsuzaka Watch, but I assure you it's not for lack of interest. I've had my hands full with some very happy and important business.
On New Years Day my wife and I were blessed with the arrival of our first child, a son. There are no words to describe this experience, but indeed I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the Earth.
Hiroto (HEE-roh-toh) Plugh (Ploo) is 7 pounds, 5 ounces and 20 inches long, born at 7:42am on the first day of 2007, year of the boar. His wingspan is absolutely ridiculous. He's all arms and legs like his daddy was, way back when.
My wife is a lefty so I'm hoping the free agent market for pitchers hasn't dried up by the time his rookie contract is up sometimes around 2036. At any rate, his lullaby has been "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" since he was conceived and he heard it for the first time on the 1st, as a member of the air-breathing world. He smiled.
Play ball Hiroto!!
