Some brief notes as we get ready to watch the final game of this series, with the Reds trying to avoid a sweep:
Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Joe Nuxhall. I’ve said it many times, but from my standpoint it bears repeating: no one has treated me better than Joe since I came to Cincinnati. It’s an honor to know him and to occasionally get to work with him. I still enjoy hearing him and Marty together too. Joe’s about as tough as they come. I’m sure you join me in wishing him well.
Also, I’m going to post a bunch of Wrigley Field photos when we get to Houston. I took daytime and nighttime pics Monday and Tuesday. That is, if I can find my briefcase. Suffering from yet another brain cramp, I left my briefcase in the luggage area of the team bus after Wednesday night’s game. So if I’m lucky enough to get it back later today, it will mean I also have my digital camera (with all the photos already taken).
Carlos Zambrando’s very tough, but last time the Reds were here so was Eric Milton. Hopefully he can pitch like he did then and like he did in a loss to Arizona over the weekend when the Reds and Cubbies hook-up Wednesday night.
(The photo to the right was taken during one of our "Hot Stove League" shows at the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum this past winter. Get well, Joe!)
