Had another mediocre day today.  Decent quantity, but pretty bad quality.  I didn't get any of the big guys.  I skipped Strasburg's line, as that guy isn't worth wasting my time on.  Zimmerman, Gonzalez, and LaRoche signed in the back of the practice facility, but I missed them.  I saw Edwin Jackson signing, but was searching for Gonzalez and missed getting him.

The worst thing about today was waiting for Bryce Harper in the parking lot.  A group of about 12-15 of us waiting until 5:00 for Harper.  Everybody else had left, including coaches.  When Harper finally emerged, he took the center field path to avoid us. 

During the workout, I saw an older gentleman walking around with his grandson.  I took a good look at him, and thought that it was Bill Singer.  I've been carrying his cards around for years, as he is the Scouting Director for the Nats.  I asked him if he was Bill Singer, and it turned out I was right.  I tried to find all of the regulars I know to point him out to them, as I figured I couldn't be the only one carrying his cards around.  One other person had stuff for him.

The only other remotely interesting thing that happened was getting called out by Matt Purke.  I got him on 2 cards (out of 4) in the parking lot in the morning.  He was signing again after the workout, so I tried to get him again.  He said "Didn't you get me this morning?"  When I said yes, he handed my book back without signing.
