Cubs Photo Gallery: A tough loss for Kane County. The pictures tell the story of an up and down day.

We haven't posted some Kane County photos for awhile.  A few old photos and there are some new players on this list...but many of the photos were from today's game -- a contest which featured some hopeful moments as two talented teams squared off, but in the end it was a frustrating day for the Cougars.  These photos capture many of those ups and downs.

As always, all photos taken by my wife Stacey.

We'll have the recap later tonight or early tomorrow morning...

  • What's with Vogelbach's eye black? Is he like that for every game?

    He LOVES him some Jesus. Read his twitter posts. ALL ABOUT the Jesus.

    In reply to Giffmo:

    Meant HE is all about the Jesus. Not all of the posts are about Jesus.


  • In reply to Giffmo:

    I figured it was that or he was really into addition.

  • In reply to Jimmy Greenfield:

    He's a very religious guy but first time I've seen him wear the eye black like that all season. .

    Maybe a Sunday thing?

  • In reply to Mike Moody:

    Could be. I haven't been to too many Sunday games, but wife usually takes pictures so I'd be surprised if I missed it. He also draws something in the dirt before each AB and then erases it. Not sure what though.

  • In reply to John Arguello:

    Willson Contreras draws something too, by the way, but it looked like he was drawing three lines and then an arc -- which would look like the Venezuelan flag.

  • In reply to John Arguello:

    We think he writes the numbers 21. Not 100% sure though.

  • In reply to WillieG1:

    That could be. It looks like it would be something like that.

  • John, any word yet on Vizcino or Solar. Will either be back this season?

  • In reply to Lee Smith HOF:

    Soler will be in Chicago tomorrow for a doctors appointment. Hopefully gets the okay to at least do a rehab assignment.

  • I don't think so. Minor league season is over in less than 3 weeks. Possible, but seems they may wait until offseason to get them working again.

  • Wow. Honestly the giant face crosses are a little (LOT) much. So Vogelbomb is our Tebow. ...Whatever brings a ring.....

  • In reply to Dan Bradley:

    Great pics, though.

  • It's awesome that your wife would take time to take those shots for us. And Bryant really needs to get promoted... I think it's apparent that he's figured out the NWL pitching @ Boise.

  • In reply to Paulson:

    Yeah, I kept looking through looking for a pic of Bryant. I wake up every morning hoping to read that's he's been promoted to the MWL and I'm actually starting to believe it has happened now.

  • In reply to Paulson:

    It's very cool. We have a digital camera and it's nothing fancy, but she's learning to use it and the pics look better and better all the time.

    I'd be surprised if Byrant wasn't promoted this week.
