Greg Holland arrives in Miami with the Rockies sporting a new look.
Womens Cooper Kupp Jersey Colorado’s closer, who leads the NL in saves with 34, blew a second consecutive save Tuesday in Cleveland, the first time that had happened in seven seasons.
He showed up Wednesday having shaved his head and beard.
Womens Gale Sayers Jersey Friday day games, we just play way too many day games during the week, Maddon said. We just do. I’m just being honest. Guys need their rest. When you are constantly going night (then) day, or day, day, day, and it’s hot during the summertime, it matters. It definitely matters.
It’d be wonderful if we could get to a more conventional method regarding the number of night games vs. day games. If not we’ll just have to deal with it. We did OK last year.
After a slow start to the season, the Cubs have looked more like a defending World Series champion in recent weeks. Despite two straight losses heading into Friday’s action, they still had a 1 1/2-game lead in the NL Central.
Maddon said the lack of night games is not an excuse for the team’s sluggish season, but he really would like to see the problem get fixed.
Listen, it’s no big secret. I’d be disingenuous if I told you something different. I’m not blaming anybody, Maddon said. This is not pointing finger. It’s not saying we’re not winning because of that. I just think it’s a better method to permit your players more consistent rest at home.
