Where’s My Invitation?

The Arizona Diamondbacks today announced that they had invited 11 non-roster players to spring training. After hearing that news, I immediately headed for the mail box. Surely they would not have forgotten to invite me! As I reached the mail, my ever fearful mail carrier again explained that I did not receive anything from the Diamondbacks. She is indeed nervous whenever I am around but that is another story for another day. Dejected, I made my way back to the house still wondering why I had not received an invitation. After all, I have not missed a Diamondbacks game at Bank One Ballpark, how could they have missed me? Oh sure, I am nearly 40 years old and I have had 3 shoulder surgeries to fix problems which have stemmed from pitching for 31 years but Mike Morgan is older than I am and Russ Springer sometimes pitches like he has had that number of surgeries. All I am asking is for an invitation. I mean even Garth Brooks got invited, how’s that for getting no respect. Looks like I am going to have to send another letter to Bob Brenly. Looks like the guy just isn’t listening yet.
