This morning's 12-miler was done in 55-degree weather when it started. There was a little rain, but it was GREAT running in shorts and a longsleeve in January. Memo to other people I saw out running - check the temperature before leaving the house. I counted a handful of people with long pants, multiple layers, hats, and gloves.
But, today was one of those days when the high was at midnight and the temperature just dropped throughout the day. Now, it's 35 and continuing to drop.
Tomorrow's the trip up north to Edinboro for our hs track meet. Looking forward to the many athletes in all the different events.
In other news, the Pirates had 4 players ranked in MLB.com's top 100 prospect rankings. It included RHP Jameson Taillon (#8), RHP Gerrit Cole (#11), OF Starling Marte (#40), and OF Josh Bell (#69). It's exciting to see 4 in the top 70. If you figure there are 30 teams, you would expect only 2 or 3 from a team in the top 70. Also, the pitching is coming. I've said it before, but I can't wait to see Cole and Taillon in Altoona this summer. Marte's knocking on the door in AAA. I can't wait to follow Bell in his debut summer.
