Upcoming Posts


A week from today I leave with my family for warm and (hopefully) sunny Jamaica for my sister-in-law’s wedding.  It will be my first time outside of the United States and I am borderline freaking out about the trip.  I’ve never seen the ocean, and it will be only the second time in my life that a trip involved flying.  

All that is kind of scary to me, but the biggest trip related stress is the prospect of dealing with our 2-year old and 5-year old sons in the various airports and on the planes.  The boys are both really excited about the trip so I’m doing my best to put on a “happy face” for the benefit of my sons and my wife.  As far as the impact of the trip on my work for FanSided, my laptop will be in tow and I am hoping to keep publishing content while we are there, but I can’t make any guarantees.

Before we head to the airport next Saturday, I have planned out the following articles.  Of course this is all subject to change based on other news that comes up, but I will do my best to stick to this schedule and tack on other articles as necessary.

First off today I will be publishing an edition of From the Fish Pond as well as another Market Fresh update.  Next up is an article based off of Sam Mellinger’s List that I’ve been meaning to write for a couple weeks.  That one may be up tonight but more likely will be published tomorrow.  On Monday I plan on publishing another Market Fresh profile and will then start revealing the Kings of Kauffman Royals prospect rankings.  I am still on the fence on whether or not it will be a top-15 or top-20 list.  My plan is to publish one prospect each day, once I get started, until all 15 (or 20) players are revealed.  One change from my original plan is that I will be writing the profiles as I go.

Also in the works is the next installment in the Draft Recall series and an interview with a big name prospect who will remain a mystery.

In other news, Kings of Kauffman has a newly designed header (see the top of the page)!

    You’re kidding, right? Grown man with children and can use a computer, has never been out of the country before? And only the 2nd time on a plane?

    I bet there are fewer of you than there are 40 year-old virgins.

    Enjoy your trip. And try to get out a little more.

    Sadly I’m not kidding. I’ve never had any desire to travel abroad and were it not for this wedding that wouldn’t be changing.

    My first time on a plane didn’t come till I went to Vegas with my wife and some friends back in 2003.

    I’ll be making up for lost time starting in 2011 when we (wife and kids) start visiting a different ballpark every year. PNC will be our first destination. Actually Target Field in Minnesota is this summer but that doesn’t count since we go up there to visit my parents every summer.

    PNC Park is an excellent choice. I used to live in Pittsburgh for a couple of years, and the view from the third base side is simply stunning. Can totally rec some places to go in the city too, if you would like.

    Brent,
    Please drop some recommendations. We’re going for the baseball, but am open to suggestions on how we can pass the time when we’re not at a game.

    Thanks!
