One of top five Jays highlights of 2008 came in the game that I attended at Comerica Park on Thursday. The catch that Vernon Wells made on a Curtis Granderson for sure triple, in the bottom of the 9th of the Tigers/Jays game on Thursday, was amazing. Watching from the stands, I thought no way he was getting to that ball. Vernon truly is a gold glove, in every sense of the word. I only wish he could have a stronger body and stay injury free, because he can really be a force in our outfield and our lineup. If you look at the numbers, we rely so Vernon Wells to carry this team. When he doesn’t play well we lose and when he plays great and we win. It is a tough burden for Wells, but its a fact, ‘the Jays will go nowhere if you can’t stay healthy’ sorry.
It was a great catch and it got me really excited at the ballpark, so much so, I stood up with my Vernon Wells jersey and pointed to the name/number on the back of it, to rub it into the Detroit fans. To my shegrin, the rest of that 8th inning did not go so well. The Jays gave up their 1-0 lead and ended up losing 5-1.
Despite the score, me and girlfriend had a great time at Comerica Park. Lots to do there, it is like an amusment park, the food made me very happy. Check out the picture package! It is full of beer, nachos, burritos, daquiris and legendary Tigers. While I was in near by, Windsor, Ontario, I also checked out the Underground Railroad momument. A pretty neat piece of Canadian History.
