This is only indirectly appropriate to our theme today but I bet you haven’t seen it before. I know I hadn’t. I thought it only went back to Peter Paul and Mary.
White Sox 2 Cubs 11 | Rays 4 Orioles 9 | Athletics 10 Yankees 5
My annoying Chicago in laws won and lost, not sure what to think of that. Good for the Fightin O’s. Evil loses. If there are any Yankee fans here they are probably reveling in our jealousy.
The final home run in the final at bat.
Mets 3 Phillies 1 | Giants 2 Pirates 11 | Red Sox 3 Blue Jays 5
Both the Mets and the Phillies are in the hunt in the NL East – kinda of a surprise. The Giants and Padres in the NL West, maybe not so much although the Giants are ahead of the Dodgers. What’s that about? The Red Sox keep pace with evil and our Canadian friends sneak up on both of them.
I hope Histro and Sparty like this one
Braves 3 Marlins 6 | Royals 10 Indians 9 | Rangers 1 Astros 0
The first place team whumps on the last place team. The Indians better stop thinking that 81 wins will take the division. Verlander vs Hamels, it must have been a beaut.
I think this one is just nice.
Brewers 11 Rockies 10 | National 3 Diamondbacks 1 | Twins 5 Angels 4
Nice to see the cheese heads had some fun. Looks like it was a well pitched game between two good teams. A really nice 9th inning comeback by my boys which I actually stayed awake for, which is why this post is so late in going up
One last time
Reds 6 Dodgers 2 | Cardinals 9 Padres 5 | Mariners Tigers PPD
What’s up with the Dodgers this year? Are the Cardinals the best run franchise in baseball? In 1978 when I was deciding what school to transfer to I had my final choices narrowed down to Hawaii because at the time one of my favorite professors taught Japanese and Chinese history, Minnesota because like Fairbanks it snows a lot there, and Washington because it rains a lot there. I have often since questioned the wisdom of my final choice.
