One day closer to spring training

January is the l-o-n-g-e-s-t stretch of the off-season for pro baseball players, and it's starting to make them a little stir crazy. Justin Jackson was obsessed with gaining 2,000 followers on Twitter, and he finally got there. Now J-Jax is giving away a game-used bat and dropping videos.  "Stay Thor-Mode," he says ... Cabin-fevered Kevin Ahrens told his Facebook friends "You gotta love pedicures. Makes the feet so soft. Colby Rasmus came out of his tree stand and hollered at his FB peeps. "How's everybody been during this long off-season?" he said. Rasmus, IMO, will be a bargain for $2.7 million in 2012.

Ex-Fisher Cats outfielder Ryan Patterson signed a minor-league deal with the Marlins. He's been indy balling the last three seasons, playing in Wichita, St. Paul and Fort Worth ... Congrats to @BlueJayGal for winning the game-used Moises Sierra bat that I gave away on Twitter. I picked that one up at the Fisher Cats team store for 20 bucks.

How do you know if your bridge height adjustment is wrong? If it is very difficult for you to push down on the string and adjust notes your guitar bridge it's possible out of adjustment. Or if the strings buzz no issue what spot you play in. Vincent (Starry, Starry, Night) This is a beautiful song written by Don Mclean and it is a great piece for classical guitar. There are many interpretations of this song but I highly recommend you use the arrangement created by Chet Atkins. It is quite possibly the best piece of guitar music ever written. It's got that nice Beatles vibe to it, with a lovely melody - what a great song. Also check out the live version by C.H. on youtube.
