Incidentally, I also finally made it to Coors Field this week. I've been living in Boulder for nearly a year, and had yet to make it to a Rockies game. The Rockies picked up the win on (another) Trevor Hoffman blown save, in a dramatic come-from-behind mad scramble for runs. It reminded me of the old-style Rockies games, the kind that basically were nothing more than glorified home run hitting contests. It was pretty fun, though, and anytime I get a chance to knock another ball park off my list, I'm pleased. So here's my idea; sometime in the next couple of days, I'm going to post MY list ranking the 30 current MLB parks. This list will be unbelievably subjective, with no attempt made to be fair or accurate. Since I haven't been to anywhere near all 30 parks, it will be filled with hearsay and rumor. Since I hate the Yankees, I'll probably knock the Stadium down a few rungs. You get the idea. After I post it, I'd be interested to hear comments from anyone with a few minutes to do so.
I'll return tomorrow with regular posts, including the next Enemy Intel report, along with a rundown of trades that may or may not happen, and my thoughts on why things are progressing as they are. If a trade happens tonight, I'll post on it with some cheap analysis.
So, my faithful readers (ironic plural included for laughs), I have returned, and am none the worse for wear. I look forward to providing some insight and analysis for the remainder of this remarkable season, and hope you continue (or begin) to stop by and check things out once in awhile.
