I gotta say, it wasn’t a bad West Coast trip at all

Well, we all know how that West Coast trip went. It’s kind of weird because, as you guys know, we usually really have a tough time out there.  We will take three series wins on a road trip anytime. I had the great experience of spending our off-day last week in Napa Valley at the Kunde Family Estate with my wife. We had a very awesome time with some great wine and met some great people.

The good feelings continued during the weekend in Oakland. Gavin Floyd did not have his best stuff a couple of days ago, but we won the series and that’s what matters the most. Again, Omar Vizquel continues to do it for us. I’m not sure how he does it, but oh my … God has been great to him and I’m happy for him. We also got some very good pitching from Phil Humber and Mark Buehrle, and our bullpen was very good the entire trip; Jesse Crain, Matt Thornton, Sergio Santos have all been awesome for really the entire month of May so far.

I’m really looking forward to being back home in Chicago and playing against a good man in Ron Washington and the American League-champion Texas Rangers. This series won’t be easy, but hopefully we will continue to compete and play like we have on the road. I remember seeing the Rangers in the World Series last year when I helped FOX on the broadcasts, and that team has a lot of personality. I really like the characters that they have on that team, and it’s probably a lot of the reason they were so good.

So I hope to see you out at the park this week and let’s hope this weather keeps getting better and better. Oh yeah, and of course … Go Bulls!! I’m watching very closely!

Hi Ozzie

Happy to hear you had a great time on the west coast!

Loved showing you around the estate when you were here, you and your wife are wonderful people, it was great getting a chance to meet you. You are officially now a wine expert on Kunde wines, except for one minor detail, we are in the Sonoma Valley, not the Napa Valley. Don’t want you to get lost the next time you come back.
Cheers!
Jeff
