Thursday – Beloit
Well we made it to Beloit last last night…and were greeted with more rain and cold tempeatures. It erally does feel like football season. The tarp is currently on the field (4:20 pm) and there is a 60% chance of rain. I finished Brad Meltzer’s Inner Circle last night on the bus as we watched the Ice-Cube/Chris Tucker classic Friday…so funny. Good book too, a lot of George Washington/Culper Ring history involving the National Archives and you can tell its the start of a series of books. Started another world thriller today The Emporer’s Tomb by Steve Berry but frankly didn’t read as much as i wanted too cause I spent most the day trying to figure out who the Packers are drafting tonight (I think they trade down, my two cents).
Was great to get the sweep last night and now we are ready to go after Beloit again. An update from last night on starting pitcher Dallas Beeler, it was NOT an arm injury that forced him to leave the game after 3 perfect innings. It appears to be an oblique injury and he is being re-evaluated daily but I would expect him to miss at least 1 if not 2 starts at the minimum.
Day off today for Matt Szczur and Richard Jones. I should note that Matt was finally credited with a hit in the 3rd inning last night to give him 3 hits on the game. I’m sure my incessant on-air complaining had nothing to do with it, but still the right call was finally made.
