The 2008 Baseball Season - According to a 5 year old

I am pleased to interupt my normal blogging for this special guest blogger. I am proud to introduce our own personal baseball analyst, 5 year old Carter.

Momma: Which team was your favorite this year?
Carter: I don't know . . . what team hit the most homeruns . . . probably the Braves

Momma: Who is your favorite player?
Carter: Probably . . . Mark Texiara, Chipper Jones and Brian McCann

Momma: Who became some of your favorite players this year?
Carter: Manny Ramirez, Prince Fielder, C.C. Sabbathia, Ryan Howard, Big Z (Carlos Zambrano) and Andruw Jones

Momma: Why are these guys some of your favorites?
Carter: Cause I like them. They are good and they are big guys!!!

Momma: Who do should win the NL MVP - Albert Puljos or Chipper Jones?
Carter: or Brian McCann . . . Chipper Jones because he hit his 400th homerun this year.

Momma: Who do should win the AL MVP?
Carter: Jacoby Ellsbury for the Red Sox - he has been doing so good.

Momma: Who is going to win the Cy Young?
Carter: Big Z because he pitched a whole game and hit homeruns

Momma: What was the best trade this year?
Carter: Mark Texiara - he has hit 13 homeruns for the Angels since he was traded.

Momma: What about CC being traded to the Brewers from the Indians?
Carter: He's good but he has not hit as many homeruns. He did pitch a whole game and caught a ball with his bare hand but I think Big Z is better.

Momma: What was the saddest thing that happened to the Braves this year?
Carter: McCann getting hurt when that Philly ran into him.

Momma: Do you think Smoltz is going to pitch next year?
Carter: Yes because he is a good pitcher - that's why.

Momma: Who was your favorite Braves player that was called up when everyone got hurt?
Carter: Omar Infante because he was on the DL when Bennett was and then came back to play.

Momma: Since the Braves are not in the playoffs this year, who is going to play in the National League Championships?
Carter: Cubs and Phillies

Momma: Who is going to play in the World Series?
Carter: Red Sox and Cubs

Momma: Who is going to win the big trophy?
Carter: Cubs because of Jim Edmonds, Soriano and Big Z

Thank you, Carter, (Why are you typing my name) for joining us today. We have enjoyed having you here today and keeping us our toes during baseball season this year. We will enjoy watching you watch the playoffs this year.

Sandy said...

That was great!!

Brian and Staci said...

Oh good! You haven't done your shopping either :) I'm feeling better already! We are in Edmond OK. Did I read somewhere that you lived in Enid for a while?

Melissa Lester said...

Wow, Carter's baseball knowledge puts me to shame! Maybe if I ever watch sports with him he will tell me what is going on.

I popped over earlier and didn't have time to tell you how sweet you were to prepare such a wonderful meal for your family. I know your Grandmama would be proud!

Karen said...

Hi Becky, I'm very pleased to meet you :-) I'm looking forward to receiving the package. It's rather exciting !! This is the first awap that I've taken place in.

Love the interview with Carter. He definitely knows his baseball !!! He sounds like Alex, my grandson who lives in NZ, when I talk to him about rugby. :-)

Karen said...

I really need to proof read my comments !!!

That's 'swap' and not 'awap' :-)
