Jill, Maisa and I visited Grampa and Gramma B. on Sunday and today.
We had a very enjoyable time out on the farm — riding the lawn tractor, playing with a ball, eating steak and seafood, and going to friend Marcos’ farm.
Papa and Nana were at our house last week, helping us build shelves in our garage. They turned out really nice and created a ton of space for us.
Mr. B helped me open the pool before he left. Now the water is in the process of being cleaned (it needs to run through the sand filter for about a week before it’s ready for swimming).
Sure wish the Dodgers were playing the Phillies now instead of whenever the two teams are scheduled to meet.
Who knew Philly would go into this kind of offensive slump? I heard they have scored nine runs in their last 10 games. With that lineup? Absolutely astounding.
It won’t last, though. I’m sure Philly will be back to scoring 6, 7, 8 runs a game by the time they play Los Angeles.
Colorado’s Ubaldo Jimenez vs. the crappy Giants lineup. It’s almost unfair.
I caught the end of that game today on MLB Network. Rockies 4, Giants 0.
Jim Tracy let Ubaldo throw around 130 pitches. Just keep on doin’ that, Trace. He’ll never hurt his arm. 😉
Quick update on my teams…
- After losing two of three to the Cubs, the Dodgers went to Denver and beat the Rockies two out of three. Clayton Kershaw picked up the victory Sunday, but the star of the game was the bullpen, with one unearned run in four innings.
- The Lakers scored a surprising Game 6 win at Phoenix to advance to the NBA Finals. That makes three consecutive NBA Finals appearances for the Lake Show.
