Labor Day Quotes

Labor Day Quotes, Happy Labor Day to all. We will update in a great blog today, but let’s start early with some newspaper articles and leftovers from yesterday. Fall has definitely arrived at Wrigley Field. We arrived at the stadium around 8:45 this morning. The wind blows from the north, and we have some clouds.
One of the items reported in the notes to the Cubs work on Monday is that the center field prospect Brett Jackson is skipping the Arizona Fall League to play for Team USA this fall. Our friend Rick Brown of the Des Moines Register relays these appointments after talking to Brett last night:
“We called and invited me,” said Jackson. “I played last year. It was one of the best experiences I’ve had. To use the uniform of their country and play in the United States of America, there is no better feeling.”
Jackson told the newspaper that the Cubs had no problem with him skipping the Fall League.
“No,” he said. “They were everything to him. I get to play for a cause and go to the World Cup and do some damage, then do the Pan American Games as well.”
Jackson is finishing in the Class AAA Texas. To fill the vacancy for the Cubs to Mesa Solar Sox of the Arizona Fall League, the Cubs have tabbed third baseman Josh Vitters perspective. In Class AA Tennessee 5-1 victory in Game 2 of the double yesterday in Birmingham, Vitters was 1-for-2 with a homer and four RBIs. The homer was 14, and raised his RBI total to 81. Vitters has a line of .283/. 322/. 448 with 22 walk and struck out 54.
In other things.
Lost in the euphoria of yesterday’s 6-3 win was the Pirates the Cubs drew 9 walks a season. They walked seven times on Aug. 22 against the Braves. Carlos Pena had a career-high four walks. He leads the team with 87 walks. Geovany Soto is second with 41.
