Playing new music and watching Postseason baseball

First of all, to all my fans, I hope you’re digging See You Tonight. We’ve been working on this for over a year now, putting this thing together, so I’m glad it’s finally out there for people to hear other than myself and the truck. It’s fun and hopefully you’re enjoying it.

You know how much I like baseball, so it was a treat today to spend time at Major League Baseball Advanced Media’s headquarters inside of Chelsea Market in New York City. We recorded some songs off the new album, so keep an eye out at MLB.com for the videos in the days to come.

Like I’ve said before, I have two favorite teams. One’s my main team, and the other is the team I just root for. My Dad grew up in the New England area, so I was raised as a kid with all things Boston, and that means Red Sox. The Braves are my other team because I’m in North Carolina and that’s who I’m for in the NL.

The Braves were close. We were rooting for them. Like I said earlier on this blog when the postseason started, I expected Boston and St. Louis in the World Series but I was gonna root for Atlanta. Luckily, I’ve still got the Sox. Man, we’re hangin on by a thread, aren’t we? We’ll see how they handle Anibal Sanchez, Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander. How do they get all those pitchers on one team?

It was good to see Big Papi come through in the clutch in that classic Game 2 at Fenway Park. I literally took a lap around the house whenever he hit that grand slam. Because we were thinking, “You know, it’s Papi’s time.” I took a lap around the house. We didn’t necessarily beat Scherzer, but we won the game he pitched, and that was huge.

Now we have one more game in Detroit tonight. It was nice to win the first game at Comerica, because now we’re playing with house money, because we’re going to make the trip back to Boston no matter what. So we’ll see. It would be nice to go back up 3-2. I think the Sox are in good position, we’re going back to Jon Lester, and hopefully the bats are going to wake up.

Over in the National League, we’ll see. The Cardinals are going back home up 3-2. It’ll be tough. They Dodgers have Clayton Kershaw going in Game 6, and it’s tough to see anybody really having a good game against him. So I can definitely see it going to a Game 7, then you have Adam Wainwright against Hyun-Jin Ryu in all likelihood. I think I’d give the edge to Wainwright there. But it’s tough to say what’s going to happen in Game 7. I think the Dodgers, if they can get to Game 7 after being down 2-0, I think they’d be pretty pumped up going into that game. They’d be pretty aggressive and fiery, so it would be pretty fun to watch.

I’m able to keep up with the games, especially on the road. On the bus, we have Apple TV so the MLB stuff is on there as well. If we don’t have that going, I’ve got the MLB.com At Bat app going where the pitch comes in as a green ball or blue ball or red ball. So I’m watching all that stuff and trying to keep up with it as best I can, especially during the playoffs.

We’re going to be hammering this album out, we’re going to be going to radio and showing them the songs and singles and hoping that they’re digging it. Here’s the title track to pass around:

We’re going to be on the road just touring, meeting the fans and seeing everything. It’s going to be a good time for us. We’re going to be busy, but busy’s good, busy’s fun. We’re going to be enjoying ourselves out here for the next few years.

Go Sox. I’ll be rooting for them the rest of the way. Thanks to the MLB.com folks for giving me a clean 2004 World Series baseball, another memory of when we Reversed the Curse of the Bambino. We could be headed for a rematch of that series, we’ll just have to wait and see over the next few days.

As we wait for the Sox to head home to Fenway, I thought I’d share with you a couple of pics from a recent trip I had there. I signed my name inside the Green Monster, and got to pose with the 2004 and 2007 World Series trophies. As a diehard Sox fan, it was pretty neat to see all the behind-the-scenes stuff there.

Everyone please welcome a familiar baseball player to the MLB.com Blogs community — American Idol Scotty McCreery! He was here at our MLB.com HQ in NYC today and we got to talk ball again and it’s great to see how much he loves blogging about it, too. His intro post on the blog tells you his thoughts about having an MLB blog. Check it out and please leave him comments.

It’s awesome to hear one of my favorite country singers is also an avid baseball fan! My family and I cheered you on the whole way on American Idol! I am excited about your new album, Scotty. Big Papi is just great. That grand slam was just sensational.
Scotty, I was wondering if you could ever check out my blog, “Bleacher Boy?” I would appreciate it dearly to have a country singer star to read it.
Come and check out a kid’s view on all things baseball!
THANKS!!!
