    Catching up with SONS. So far so good, halfway through ep2.


    Not bad so far.

    Anyone know who the guys were that took the documents from Clay's safe?

    I couldn't figure out if we were supposed to recognize them or not.

    The US Olympic Swimming team is training in Knoxville the next couple weeks.


    I've heard that there will not be any public access to the indoor practices, but it sounds like they will be using the outdoor pool at times, which is more accessible if anyone wants to check it out.

    Definitely fun when the 9th place hitter you've never heard of, who is hitting sub .200 with 0 HR's on the year, has a 2 HR game.


    Did you go last night? What'd you think of Castro? I really wasn't impressed. He was by no means bad, but I never once thought "this guy is special." Then again, I'm not known for my scouting abilities! ...and those HRs were absolutely crushed!

    Barons shuffled up their rotation after the offday. Net result appears to be a full week of extra rest for Castro.


    Yesterday: Bayne

    Today: Molina

    Friday: Kloess

    Saturday: TBD

    Sunday: Castro.


    Good info - thanks! I think I'm going on Sunday.

    You guys need to use your imaginations...I know you were sort of unfortunately led to believe you would just pop out of college and immediately be handed a great job, but that's not usually how it works.


    The best advice I can give you is to network with everyone you know, and then go out and meet more people to network with. Be willing to do anything, really, not just something in your area of study/interest.


    In the meantime, go to the library and read books. Read business books. Read best-sellers. Read self-improvement books. Exercise. Play sports that are cheap. Enjoy your free time while you have it.


    You never know what might lead you to your next job.


    This is so true. My first job out of college was crappy (fun because I worked with a bunch of other people right out of college). You never know where your career will take you, but networking is always priority #1.

    Appreciate the post, Disco72. There's some sound advice there that I will consider going forward.


    I decided to try PR because I know a lot of business and journalism majors end up there since they have skills for it (persuasion, writing). To be honest, I'm not the sales type and don't see myself staying in PR for five years.


    That said, I was thinking of what was growing - healthcare or just something I was considering higher education. Since I am not the best in the sciences (although A&P might be easier than I think), I don't think I could be a nurse, but I could work on the admin side of a hospital in...HR or purchasing, maybe. I may have changed my major from education in college, but I still think I would be a good guidance or admissions counselor. Seeing kids succeed and find the right fit for them would be satisfying.


    What did you teach a class on? That sounds like something I really would be interested in. Maybe getting the MBA or something that would allow me to teach at a college would be ideal.


    I started out teaching international business because that's what I was doing for the consulting gig. Once I realized that it was what I wanted to do for my career, I got the PhD and have since taught Strategic Management and am currently teaching Entrepreneurship. It took awhile for me to figure out what I wanted for my career, and I really found it by accident.

    They're not going to bring in Orlando Hudson to sit behind Brent Lillibridge or Eduardo Escobar.


    KW wouldn't have signed him with the promise to sit him on the bench.


    100% he said 3B is yours as long as you produce something at least halfway decent...that Morel will be either on the DL or assigned to Charlotte for an extended period of time and that they're 100% back into "win now" mode for 2012.


    They are not back into win now mode for 2012 just because they signed Hudson. They literally have nobody that can play the position at a near MLB level. If Morel were healthy, he'd still be playing every day.
