Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’
Remember that Limp Bizkit song? That’s what I think about when I think about this team. We just keep rollin’. With the additions of Lugo and Holliday, we have really gained some much needed momentum. Holliday has been on fire. They say sometimes you just need a change of scenery and apparently it was true with him. He is a great teammate but I already knew that. We played together on the 1997 Junior USA Team in Canada.
After my 0-for-3 with a walk on Sunday, the mustache had to go. It was working there for a while, but I guess it ran its course. August is here and with our division being so tight, every game counts from here on out. This past series with the Astros had a playoff feel. It’s exciting. If we can keep our bats hot and our starting pitching stays on course, this will be a fun ride.
Don’t forget about my charity wine benefiting Stray Rescue St Louis (strayrescue.org). Randy Grim, the director of Stray Rescue, just launched his latest book “Don’t Dump the Dog,” and my wife and I attended the VIP Party. We got to meet the staff from Best Friends Animal Society and the show Dog Town on the National Geographic Channel. They are great people doing great things for animals in need. It’s a great wine for a great charity.
Until next time….
