Photos from Wrigley Field

I managed to get to two games last week while I was in Chicago. Both were losses, so I'm not doing particularly well this year. I took photos at both.

Florida Marlins, 28 May 2007 (Memorial Day)
They went pretty heavy on the patriotism at this game. I wish I had gotten a better picture of the bald eagle soaring around the field, but I was too stunned to whip out my camera until it had already landed on the falconer's arm. I sat up in the LF bleachers with Al and a few other BCB readers/regulars. I'm terrible with names, so I apologize.

Atlanta Braves, 1 June 2007 (the Zambrano-Barrett game)
Unfortunately, I was in no position to get photos inside the Cubs dugout. However, I was about 15 rows behind the plate. I've never sat in seats like these at Wrigley ($$$) and I probably never will again, unless I somehow become a millionaire. I felt like Z's arm slot was a little low; a couple of times it looked like he was almost sidearming the ball. Also, I felt like the HP ump's zone was a little inconsistent, esp. with the low strike.
