All right, tonight we leave for the east coast. We’ve been gearing up the last week so I haven’t spent too much time watching the Cubs, but on with the latest being Kosuke Fukodome traded to the Cleveland Indians for some prospects. The funny part is while I’m writing this post, I’m listening to Billie Holiday’s All of Me.
The Cubs picked up Outfielder Abner Abreu and pitcher Carlton Smith. The Cubs will have to eat a few bucks in the process but I think it was the right thing to do. Kosuke came to the Cubs with great fanfare a few years ago but there hasn’t been too much room in the lineup for him. Tyler Colvin will get some more playing time and that’s a good thing.
So back to Nova Scotia. We’re going to take a two week vacation and drive across. At least 16 hours, but probably closer to 18 with stops for Darcy to get fed and changed. It’s going to be exciting seeing friends and relatives and of course seeing the beautiful Cape Breton. The car is almost packed and the tunes have been loaded. We’re ready to go!
I’m going to take a break from baseball for the two weeks but I’ll post our trip diary and catch the Cubs highlites from the road.
Go Cubs Go!
