    Dodgers vs. Red Sox. The money changers in the MLB temple are happy for this matchup.

    Justin Verlander Traded to Astros

    I can’t bring myself to root for the Boston Red Sox with a clean conscience. I am OK with either the Dodgers or the Brewers but I doubt if either of these two teams can beat the Red Sox.

    It was 50 years ago today

    There are many things about me that no one on this board actually knows.

    This is the screen capture on my iPhone of a highlight video on YouTube of the final moments of the 1968 World Series championship that I converted to a GIF. Good times.

    Jim Price, Willie, and Kaline being interviewed by Ernie in the visitor’s clubhouse on NBC after the 7th game victory. These are screen captures I took on my iPhone off a YouTube video of the game. They were all drinking long neck beers. I hope it was Strohs instead Budweiser.

    If they’re really thinking of selling this team adding long term expenditures for big-name players seems like a bad move. Let the next owners make that decision. But you can’t just let the team and the fan base sink into despair and disinterest either. So I expect them to stay the course with the whole rebuilding thing. There’s a good chance they will be atleast a little bit better next year. Anything outside this basic strategy will be a result of something too good to pass up, and one of those exceptions that proves the overall rule.

    Fist City: population...Rod and Mario

    I thought Rod had a great voice. I didn’t find his commentary that intriguing or instructive. Mario had a good voice too but he was indeed dull. So each one of them met the bare minimum standard of listenability but neither of them had much to say.
  9. If you search “Christopher Columbus“ on Yahoo you get a biography of the explorer colonizer and a photo of the guy who directed Mrs. Doubtfire. I hope this algorithm doesn’t run any self-driving cars

    There were moments, but for the most part I did not enjoy this season. But I really really really miss it. Dammit.

    Imagine that. Pulling a guy with a track record of running out of steam when you might be able to predict that he could run out of steam. It is much better to leave the pitcher out there to “build his confidence.” Right.

    The Yankees won. There goes my plan for the “ideal world series“ of Milwaukee vs. Oakland. Unless it’s the Astros, I’m rooting for the National League. I consider all American league teams the enemy.

    2019 Draft Pick Watch

    Thank you. More still, I likened Bentham’s utilitarianism to a “vast unsympathetic logic” which is how HG Wells described the Martians in War of the Worlds. I’ve never read that book — and probably no more Jeremy Bentham than anyone else — but I’ve seen the movies and that line is memorable.
