A few photos and a PSA

I'd like to have a few words with you all about batteries.

If you shoot photos at games, you should always have at least two fresh, fully charged camera batteries.

Under no circumstances should you leave a charged battery in the charger at the hotel while you are at the game. Nor should you assume you will get the same performance as usual out of a battery that has been sitting in the camera bag unused for months.

(You can guess where this is going, huh?)

Shot BP and then Buck's first inning before the camera chirped to let me know the battery was low. My priority for the day was Masterson, and fortunately I knew he'd be out for the 8th and 9th, so I took virtually nothing during the game until he came out. Did get him, though!

First, Michael Bowden throwing a side.

Hansen gets advice from Luis Tiant.

Devern Hansack takes things in.

Lester and Hansen, amused.

Bowden signs for that part of his adoring public that's not shooting him. ^_~

I don't think water is supposed to gush from the mound.

Argenis Diaz, who made it through a week of spring training before they got his name right ("ar-HEN-is").
