Based in Las Vegas, Nevada, Michael Erin serves as the vice president of development for the Economic Club of Las Vegas, a role he assumed in October 2015. He is also the principal of PacificRock, a limited liability company in Las Vegas. A former resident of Chicago, Michael Erin supports the Chicago Cubs and is an avid baseball fan.
A recent New York Times article highlights the strengths of the Chicago Cubs this year, following up on an early prediction by sports experts that the Cubs were on their way to the World Series. So far the Cubs have the best record in baseball at 20-6 and hold the biggest division lead in the majors by six games. While this alone is impressive, even more significant is the fact that the Cubs are winning their games by such large margins. Recent games against the Pirates include victories like 6 to 2, 7 to 1, and 7 to 2. Even larger margins were seen in the games played against the Reds, with scores of 16 to 0 and 9 to 0. On the other hand, the Cubs’ few losses have been by one or two runs.
What’s most important now for the Cubs is that they don’t lose their momentum. It is only May and injuries can drastically change the picture. However, Cub fans have a lot to cheer for as the team is looking stronger than it has in years.
Michael Erin currently serves as the global initiatives manager for the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance.
