    Talked with Richie Gardner

    Ran into Gardner and talked for a couple minutes. He feels good, and is about a month ahead of the schedule originally set for him.

    I asked him if they told him how long he would be in Sarasota, and he said he'll move up when his arm strength got back to normal. He said his speed is climbing back to where it was, and is about 87 now. I asked if 92-93 was the old speed and he said yes.

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Thanks for sharing Jax. Hopefully he can get his velocity back soon and make it to AAA by the end of the year.
