Prof: Sorry, guys. I’ve been extra tired lately, trying to pack, and then I got kinda sick. Not the greatest few weeks for me physically. I feel like I let you all down when I miss a post. But let’s not dwell on the past. Lots of double headers today, so let’s get started. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-B8k0n_3cs…… Continue reading He Said, She Said – Scores and Highlights for 9/14/2020
Hedge fund manager Steve Cohen has signed an agreement to purchase the NY Mets. I did not see where a purchase price was reported. Last year, Cohen agreed to buy the team for $2.6; that fell apart when the Wilpons allegedly put in a clause in the agreement that would have them retain significant authority…… Continue reading Mets Sold
Scouts: Prof wasn’t feeling well yesterday, so it’s just me today. There’s a bunch of games, so I may cut a few recaps short. It’s not like anyone watched yesterday, it was the beginning of football or something right? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdpBZ5_b48g Braves 8, Nationals 4 – Scouts: Max Scherzer vs Kyle Wright. Good money is…… Continue reading He Said, She Said – Scores and Highlights for 9/13/2020
The Cubs’ Alec Mills has recorded the second no-hitter of the season, against the Milwaukee Brewers. He struck out 5 and walked 3 on 114 pitches as the Cubs demolished the Brewers 12-0. It was the 305th no-hitter in MLB history. It’s the second of this pandemic-shortened season. There was one each in 2016 and…… Continue reading Cubs’ Alec Mills No-Hits Brewers
Albert Pujols launched his 660th career home run tonight, tying Willie Mays for 5th on the all-list. He still trails Barry Bonds, Henry Aaron, Babe Ruth, and Alex Rodriguez. 445 of his homers came in his 11 years as a Cardinal, 215 in his 9 years with the Angels. Tonight’s bomb was a 2-run homer…… Continue reading Pujols Ties Mays
Every number is magical in that it exists nowhere outside of the human mind.
Prof: Hey, fam. I fell asleep randomly and woke up without anything being set up. I apologize if things are brief on my end. It’s currently 11:58 pm as I write this, so let’s go!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-u5WLJ9Yk4 Astros 1, Athletics 3 – Prof: Ah, man, Sean Manaea was six innings into a perfect game! It’s ok,…… Continue reading He Said, She Said- Scores and Highlights for 9/10/20
Scouts: Big day for offenses in the league, as three teams hit double digits. In fact, only a handful of games combined for fewer than 10 total runs. I’m back to picking today’s music, and I can’t believe we haven’t featured Korn. That’s a mistake that needed to be rectified. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRGrNDV2mKc Marlins 9, Braves 29…… Continue reading He Said, She Said – Scores and Highlights for 9/9/20
Prof: There are waaaaay too many games today for preambles and rambles. But as a special treat, you get more tunes chosen by yours truly. Two days in a row, wow! Let’s get crackin’. Scouts: Prof has selected one of my absolute favorite cover bands. The Gimmie Gimmies. And I cannot more highly recommend them.…… Continue reading He Said, She Said – Scores and Highlights for
Scouts: I hope everyone had a good long and restful weekend. Typically Labor day signals the return to school for most around the country, however 2020 is a strange year indeed where nothing happens as it should. Many are preparing to return remotely, while some are returning in person. Many parents are facing incredibly difficult…… Continue reading He Said, She Said – Scores and Highlights for 9/7/2020

House of The Rising Sun
On Sep 2, the Phils made Dick Allen’s #15 the first number of a (so far) non-Hall of Famer to be retired by the club. By all accounts it was a very nice ceremony and clearly moved the retired, now 78-year-old, player. It was also a little sad in that it was not in front…… Continue reading Phillies Retire Dick Allen’s Number
Prof: I asked this on Twitter but the FI Fam is full of great advice and people that I know have my best interests at heart. I started a new job at the end of June and with the exception of a significant raise in pay, I hate everything about it. It’s not what I…… Continue reading He Said, She Said- Scores and Highlights for 9/3/20
Prof: As Raysfan mentioned in his most recent post, The Franchise has died. Tom Seaver was a hero to anyone who loves pitching. He was the archetype of the modern pitcher, with his health regimen, his intelligence, his business-like way of facing opponents. Tom Terrific was all class, and one of the greatest there ever…… Continue reading He Said, She Said – Scores and Highlights for 9/2/2020
