I swear to God, if I ever hit against this clown, I'd dance a jig in the batters box while he's going through his antics.

That game got out of hand and the wife and I beat traffic out.

Over all great park. Plenty of railing spots if you want cheap and just stroll the park but for 2 $300 is a good tix.

Next year the wife wants good seats but I told her that the Cubs have to be a quality product before we spend.

But in general it is pretty much a top end park to goto

The baseball is dead.
I went to bed and missed the ending. Longest I've stayed with a game all year. I did see the replay this morning....it sure looked like he crushed it. At Wrigley, you always figure the wind knocked the ball down....pretty sure wind isn't a factor in San Diego. Maybe the stories are true about MLB fucking with the baseballs again.

What you can take out of that series is the starter sets the tone. Miley was showing rust and got frustrated when the ump was blowing calls on strikes even when he was fighting his control

But with Thompson and Hendricks they set the tone. Today was Shakey at best. Givens has been meh as a set up. Losing Robertson hurt depth. Wick can close games just fine.

Injury bug is out. Might lose Nico for a few. Suzuki out for a few. Stroman.

Shoot might as well call up Kilian at this point. DFA Manuel De Jesus Rodríguez. He is wasting a roster spot right now and teams are not going to rush after him.

Well Simmons is at 15 AB at Iowa. Might as well have him join the team now. 2 MI down kinda is a signal.
