My observations on a couple games in Wrigley

First, before anything else, Wrigley reeks baseball. I felt at home as a baseball fan just walking into the ballpark. I did not take in a game from the bleachers, but I did get two vantage points, and the stadium is great for it's view lines. I spent under $75 for two tickets to todays game, and I had an AMAZING view (I have pics, but it will take ages to get them all downloaded from the camera) right behind home plate. Next, my observations of the games: - Arodys looks FILTHY in person. Fans around me were constantly saying "Wow!" while he pitched - Speaking of wow's, Beachy's off-speed stuff had a similar effect today. - Heyward is hitting the ball on the best part of the bat, but he had some strong "at 'em" balls the last couple of days. He had a solid (though not quite all the way back) approach in the games. - I LOVE Uggla's heart. After his struggles last night and an earlier drop on a tough pop-up that he could have gotten, he was visibly upset that he couldn't make up for it on a perfectly timed, but not perfectly angled jump for a liner in today's game. He walked to the pitcher (I honestly forget if Beacy was still out there or not) and the fans around me assumed he apologized...yet the play would have finished Sportscenter tonight had he made it. He was also just about to jump out of his uniform on Brian's first-inning homer today he was so excited for the team. He may not do it pretty, but I think Uggla will bring a lot to the Braves for their price paid. I could go on a while, and I may reply with some others, but I just wanted to share these.
