Nashville Sings the Blues
Citi Field was rocking so loud Saturday night that my Apple watch alerted me with a decibel warning. Maybe it's the material in the stadium, maybe it's where the pitch sits within the bowl, or maybe playing in Queens amps the vibe. Whatever the reason, Citi Field has become an electric alternative home pitch.
Until we parked the bus and the subs came on, the first 75 minutes were the best played minutes of the season. Two quick goals gave the boys in blue confidence and energy and electrified the crowd. There is not a lot of negativity to balance this week, so let's just jump into it.
Chanot is our anchor. Our veteran. And now, it seems, our striker.

Ledezma is seriously good. I’m going to say it here…

This week I’m going to tuck into the chicken and biscuit sandwich from Jacob’s Pickles. I’ll let you know how it goes but it’s going to be tough to take the top spot from Porchetta.
See you Saturday at Citi Field.
