The Wife & I are back from Chase Field, having had the displeasure of seeing the Houston Astros come from behind to defeat our beloved Diamondbacks 6-5, spoiling a fine starting performance on the mound by Joe Saunders & a beautiful three-run homer by Ryan Roberts. Aaargh!

It was a fun time anyway. It was the 12th annual Hispanic Heritage Day, so the ballpark was full of mariachi bands & traditional dancers…

Most enjoyable, but alas the craven management of the D-bax asserted that this year’s festivities weren’t a political gesture. Though co-owner Ken Kendrick has again stated his personal opposition to the measure, the organization still doesn’t rate the props that “Los Suns” did earlier this year for their bold anti-SB1070 stand.

Our big score tonight, however, was a Bobblehead of our favorite current Diamondback, catcher Miguel Montero…
