Well, I am still trying to figure out the best way to display pictures since we made the “swith” to WordPress. Anyway, the gallery of pictures are from Coors Field last Thursday night. The Brewers and Rockies in the first game back after the All Star break.
I was able to attend the game because I was in Colorado for work. I went to the game with my Aunt and Uncle(who got the tickets for us), my friend Dave and his wife and one of my co-workers. The seats were great and the view was simply amazing. The fans and workers at the game were wonderful.
As for the game, the Brewers infield defense is definitely their Achilles heal. The Rockies won the game 12-3 and took advantage of errors and several miscues by the Brewers defense. I am not trying to insult the Brewers or their fans….it’s just my opinion.
As for my Cubbies, well, I don’t know what to say. The team is just not playing winning baseball. I think it’s time to trade as many veteran players as we can and stock up on talented prospects. With the money that’s coming off the books over the next two season and with a solid core of prospects I think the Cubs will be primed to make some good moves and start winning ballgames again.
Anyway, it’s good to be back home from my trip out west. Coors Field was awesome! Getting to see family and friends was great. But being at home with your family is priceless!!!!
The Cubs took two of three from the Astros, but it wasn’t easy. In the two wins, both starting pitchers were left in too long, in my amateur opinion, and the Astros almost came back and won each game. I’m hoping Quade recognizes this and makes the appropriate adjustments. In the game we loss during the series, it was a horrible display of baseball by the Cubs. Lack of hustle, poor hitting and terrible defense. That’s all I’ve got to say about that!
