The Last Hurrah for 2021

 The last homestand of the Durham Bulls for 2021 saw some really good baseball. the Bulls went 5-0 against a decent Gwinnett Braves team.

To be honest, in spite of all of Patrick Kinas' and Scott Pose's effort,  I've not been able to get my head around what these last 10 games are all about. They don't count for season standings. They do count for individual stats. 

Not to be too cynical about it, it seems to me to be mostly for the MLB teams that have some playoff hopes. They can keep guys playing baseball without having to make a roster decision until the end of next week.

Meanwhile, a great season for us, the fans. As the back of the T-shirt proclaims

The Bulls won:

  • The Surf & Turf Challenge — Shrimp (Jacksonville) vs Steak (Durham)
  • Triple-A East/Southeast Division Champions
  • Triple-A East Champions
  • Triple-A National Champions

I even heard a broadcaster (Charlotte, maybe?) refer to the Bulls as the "Evil Empire" of Triple-A. 

The Bulls are off to Norfolk for a five-game wrap-up of the season.
