Confident going into Game 3
We know we’ll have to get it going to come back from two games down and win the World Series, but this team is resilient and has a lot of confidence.
It was a long flight. We had to stop and get gas on the way and landed at 6-ish. I think everybody was a little more tired than usual. But other than that, it was pretty much the same. The same guys played cards. The same guys watched movies. The same guys played video games.
I really appreciate the home-field advantage that we have at Coors Field. There’s no doubt we’re going to feel a lot more comfortable here. It’s always been that way with the Rockies, that no matter what happens on the road, we can turn things around in a hurry. Down 2-0, history will tell you that it’s a tough place to come back from, but we’ve got no choice. We’ve got to go out and play, and win a baseball game tomorrow.
I haven’t really had a chance to sample the spirit of Denver. I just decided to get some sleep, then come to the ballpark and work out. I understand people are excited. Everyone is wearing Rockies gear, and I know the fans here are behind us. Hopefully, I’ll see some of the excitement tomorrow. I know there will be a lot of it for Game 3, the first-ever World Series game at Coors Field.
