Back home to close out the season
Well, we were back at it in Chicago this weekend. The weather is cold and windy, with a little rain. It’s not very good but hey, maybe I need to get used to it already. Had the chance to stop by and see my good friend at the dentist’s office, Dr. Jack Ruby. It’s always good to see him. His staff always takes such good care of me and my family. He is one of so many others that I don’t even want to begin to name because I might forget some. I have had such great friendships during my time here in Chicago.
OK, back to baseball. We would really like to finish this season in second place. I know for most fans that doesn’t seem like much right now, but for me and the coaching staff it’s a huge deal. Of course we would have rather been finishing in first place, because I believe — just like Ricky Bobby — if you’re not first, you’re last. I love that movie! Hopefully we can finish strong here the last series and the fans can come out and show their support. We get the Blue Jays for a couple games this week and then it’s time for everyone to go home.
One more thing: I will definitely have to watch “Money Ball” sometime soon. Looks like a good movie about a good GM; what do you guys think from seeing the previews?
