Prof: Hello, Fam. Sorry again for yesterday; WordPress is forcing a new editor into our lives and it plays havoc on things at times. Especially when you’re doing the post on limited sleep in the first place!
Scouts: Thanks to Prof for helping pick up my slack the past few days. I’m still not feeling great, but thankfully yesterday was a light day. I’m hoping I’ll be back on my feet by next week. This weekend they are releasing the demo of the remake of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 video game. Man the house I wasted in that game back in High School, not a single one I regret. I’m super excited for the release personally. The game was not only chill and fun, but it had such an amazing sound track. Today we will enjoy some of the best tracks
Padres 2, Dodgers 11 – Scouts: For the 6th time in his career Mookie Betts had a three homer game. Betts went 4-4 with 5 RBI. But that’s not all! Also going yard was Corey Seager, Aj Pollock, and Austin barnes! Tell them what they’ve won Pat!
Brewers 2, Cubs 4 – Prof: Yuuuuuuuuuuuu! Darvish’s third straight dominant outing, taking a no-hit bid into the seventh. He struck out eleven. Baby Babe Ruth Schwarbs had a solo jack in the second inning.
Pirates 9, Reds 6 – Scouts: For the first time in club history, the Bucs hit 3 homers in the first 6 batters. That’s one of those stats that’s both impressive and makes you go “Who the hell keeps track of that?” The final homer was part of a 7 run second inning that for all intents and purposes ended the game. Nick Senzel did his best to keep the Reds in the ball game however, picking up 4 RBI’s on 3 hits.
Rays 17, Red Sox 8 – Prof: Is this a triumph of offense, or an embarrassment of defense? How ’bout both? The Rays were straight filth in this contest. Something tasty for everyone – homers, singles, errors, line drives, doubles, sac flies. Mike Zunino was 1-5 but that one hit was a three run dinger. Hunter Renfroe was flat out deadly, with two homers and 3 RBI.
Orioles 11, Phillies 4 – Scouts: Is it time to give the O’s a little respect yet? The team is 3 games over .500 and just a game and a half back of the Yankees for the division lead. Anthony Santander and Pedro Severino had 3 RBI’s a piece as former Oriole Jake Arrieta picked up his second loss on the year.
Nationals 2, Mets 8 – Prof: Stras was ejected from the game…while sitting in the stands…in shorts and a t-shirt. When I saw the footage, Reader, I laughed. How many of us have seen an ignorant strike call and yelled something like “you suck” or “that’s f’ing brutal”? Stras was just being the avatar for the average fan. Anyway. To the game itself – New York cranked bomb after bomb, including a grand slam in the fifth.

Have you guys tried selecting “classic” view in the editor? The new editor was driving me nuts too until I tried that. In my last couple of posts it’s been working for me just like it was before.

I use the classic editor. The problem is three fold. A) WordPress keeps forcing their new editor which is effing terrible and doesn’t have the auto save feature (or it’s broken). B) WordPress announced a few days ago that they are completely killing the old editor. C) I’m pretty sure there is a bug with the JetPack add on (which we can’t disable), the new block editor, and the sites theme which has been discontinued. There also seems to be an issue with chrome (I’m having a difficult time logging in and getting the normal site editor bar to show). We will be forced at some point to pick a new theme. Obviously I have been dragging my feet on this for a while now and when the time does come I will try to find one that works similar to the current theme. But no one likes change and I don’t feel like sorting through 250 themes to find the closest match that won’t also upset people.
Mookie Betts has now moved into a three-way tie for most 3-homer games in a career, with Johnny Mize and Sammy Sosa. Betts is only 27, so I wouldn’t bet against him eventually owning the record all to himself. In other news, my autocorrect keeps changing Mookie to “no okie,” which as a resident of OK for 11 years now, I found amusing.
For the curious, Babe Ruth had 2 3-homer games, once with the Yankees in 1930 and in his final game with the Boston Braves—becoming the first to hit 3 home runs in a game in each league.

I must admit it feels like Las Vegas here in Anaheim of Los Angeles. Passing cars, voices of walkers conversing on the street, in the chairs set up outside the restaurants and Starbucks of Downtown. The word being repeated it “Betts.”
Nice selection, Scout. Did I hear Jello mention HBPiDick?
