He says the photos mostly speak for themselves, and added, simply:As you can see (especially in the left-field corner) there is quite a bit of work remaining, including painting of steel that’s now white. It will no doubt be painted to match the green paint of the rest of the 1060 Project. The dormers that were removed to build the upper-deck patio and were being rebuilt are nearly complete. One of the things the Cubs wanted to do with the 1060 Project was to restore the look of the ballpark in its “heyday,” considered to be the late 1920s through the late 1930s, when the team won four N.L. pennants. If you look at the photos that show the Addison Street side of the park and compare them to these 1938 World Series films, you can see that the team has accomplished that goal:Yes, there are some differences, but the look is quite similar. You’ll also note that in the 1938 films, Wrigley gates are numbered instead of lettered, as they have been since at least the 1980s. It’s my understanding that the team is also going to restore these numbered gates, beginning at the Addison & Sheffield gate, which will be “Gate 1,” and go around the ballpark west, north, then east, to “Gate 10,” the bleacher gate number which has been there since the latest bleacher renovation in 2015.The home opener against the Pirates is four weeks from today http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-jimenez-jersey , April 8. Some things (particularly in the right-field corner area) won’t be ready for that, but most everything else will be.Now we just have to get the weather to cooperate, something that did not happen last year. The Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers asserted their dominance on the first day of play in the NLDS.Now the challenge for the home sides in Friday's Game 2s is to bank off the momentum gained from Game 1 and take a 2-0 series lead into Colorado and Atlanta, respectively.The Dodgers paved the easier path to victory Thursday, as they shutout the Braves at Dodger Stadium to set Clayton Kershaw up for success Friday.Milwaukee's peculiar bullpen strategy ended up working, but the Brewers needed 10 innings to dispense of the Rockies.The Brewers are expected to opt for a more conventional route with their pitching in Game 2 at Miller Park while their lineup tries to stay hot against a familiar foe. Friday NLDS ScheduleGame 2:Colorado at Milwaukee (4:15 p.m. ET, FS1)Game 2:Atlanta at Los Angeles (9:37 p.m. ET, FS1)Both games can be live-streamed on Fox Sports Go or the Fox Sports app.Brewers Looking For More Success Against AndersonTyler Anderson's August 4 start against the Brewers was one of his worst outings in the second half of the season.The left-handed starter was roughed up during a four-inning stintas the Brewers put up seven runs on seven hits.Jae C. Hong/Associated PressSix of those runs were scored in the first inning, as the top of the Milwaukee order jumped on Anderson, with Travis Shaw's grand slam highlighting the offensive outburst.In Thursday's Game 1, Christian Yelich and Ryan Braun recorded two hits each out of the No. 2 and No. 3 positions in the order.Yelich, who should be the National League MVP, continued his tear at the plate with a three-run home run in the third inning.Jeff Roberson/Associated PressIf the top third of the order attains the same level of success it had against Anderson in August and in Game 1, the Brewers will push across a few runs in the opening innings.From the Rockies' perspective, they're hoping to get similar results out of Anderson as they did in September, as he allowed four earned runs in his last three regular-season starts.In his final start before the postseason, Anderson tossed 7.2 innings of shutout ball against the Washington Nationals.Jhoulys Chacin, who pitched for the Rockies at the start of his career, takes the mound for the Brewers in Game 2 after giving up one hit and one earned run in the NL Central tiebreaker against the Chicago Cubs Monday.Chacin's lone regular-season start against the Rockies came May 10 http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-jimenez-jersey , when he gave up four hits and two earned runs in 5.1 innings.In his last five starts, Chacin's conceded three runs or fewer, and his performance Monday suggests he'll produce another efficient outing.If Anderson and Chacin stay true to their recent form, a pitcher's duel will break out in Milwaukee, but it's hard to bet against the Brewers coming up with a few big hitsas they did in Game 1. Dodgers Trusting Kershaw To Earn Commanding LeadThe Dodgers possess an embarrassment of riches on the mound.After Hyun-Jin Ryu tossed seven shutout innings in Game 1, the Dodgers trot out Clayton Kershaw to the bump for Game 2.During the Dodgers' run to the World Series a year ago, Kershaw corrected the negative narrative surrounding his postseason performance.Kershaw won three of his first four postseason starts in 2017, and in those victories, he conceded six earned runs over 19.1 innings.Ross D. Franklin/Associated PressThe southpaw has also achieved plenty of success against Atlanta in his career, as he boasts a 4-0 record and 1.43 ERA in 10 starts versus the Braves.There's a good chance Kershaw spends as long as Ryu on the mound in Game 2, as he's lasted at least six innings in all but one of his starts since July.The one glimmer of hope the Braves have entering Game 2 comes from the amount of home runs Kershaw has given up over the last month.Six of the 17 home runs Kershaw conceded during the regular season came in September, but he didn't give up a home run as one of his five earned runs conceded Saturday against Arizona.If the Braves can take advantage of a mistake or two by Kershaw early in Game 2, they could provide themselves with a needed confidence boost on the road.Even if the Braves rough up Kershaw for a run or two, their pitching staff must keep the Dodgers' offense at bay, which is no easy task.Expect Game 2 at Dodger Stadium to be more competitive than Game 1, but the Dodgers will find a way to pull away in the middle innings, as the middle of their order comes up with a few run-scoring hits in clutch situations.Follow Joe on Twitter, JTansey90Statistics obtained from Baseball Reference
