So we just got to Portland last night and after a great meal at a churrascaria (Brazilian steakhouse) I feel good and ready to go. Last week was tough to say the least but I think we all feel the need to step it up and start winning some ball games. Losing against Phili at home hurt. It's been a tough transition especially for Steve but we've all had to try and change our style a little bit. The west is stacked with great teams and it's going to get interesting that's for sure. It's really anyone's game right now which is both exciting and scary at the same time. We go up against my friend and ex teammate James Jones tonight. I'm excited to see "Junior". He's a good guy and definitely missed here in Phoenix. Well I'm off to shootarounds. Tchau!
