Some random thoughts on the Majors….
Big big stuff this weekend, well in my opinion. The Phillies and Brewers square off in early September. What better way to see where these top two National teams are at so close to post-season. I know what I will be doing this weekend when I’m not at work. My bottom will be on the couch watching these stellar clubs go at. Prince Fielder vs. Roy Halladay. Talk about beast mode. The Jays could really learn something from these studs. Jimmy Rollins was recently activated off of the 15-day DL list and Chase Utley is being examined for a concussion, he did not make the trip to Milwaukee. So that is bittersweet, one in and one out. The 2007 National League Most Valuable Player is a great exchange for the star 2B.
Andre Ethier was sent to Dr. Andrew in Birmingham, Alabama to look after his ailing knee injury. Coincidentally enough, I went to the same doctor in University when I was dealing with rotator cuff surgery. All-star Ethier is in magnificent hands with Andrews, he is one of the top doctors in North America and has worked on hundreds of top athletes. Very polite, intelligent and compassionate doctor. He does not hesitate, so Dodgers fans worried about one of their top players, he will be OK.
I am at the yard right now as the O’s are in town. Brett Cecil is on the hill, he is 3-0 against Baltimore in his career, but is winless since July 29th. Stay tuned I will have more this weekend…
