I'm a little surprised by how well I'm doing with this game. This is probably a fluke, because today's answer was my first guess yesterday, so he was still top of mind.

It wouldn't have helped me but it puts Ohtani as DH, not SP,  and LeMahieu as 3B. 

PS it did not make me log in, and I tested in incognito and nope, no login required. I think.


Good to know about no login, at least for others, as I play ALL the MLB games, because I simply do not have a life.

Baseball is all about numbers and history...which is why it's not so popular with the younger crowd.  The only numbers they care about now have to do with betting on their phone.

Since this is a classic, pre-smart phone bar argument....  I'll suggest that the list ignores the reality that greatness for the Yankees had already been excluded via the retired number.  The only single-digit numbers available his rookie year were 2 and 6 (which has subsequently been retired for Joe Torre).   That's a lot of limitations on associating numbers to greatness.  

Over all of MLB...wouldn't it make more sense that greatness relates to retired numbers?  If so,  2 is way down the list.

$16 in DC for draft, craft beers 20 oz




A few years ago it was $14 for a craft beer at Coors Field or a 24oz Bud Light etc.; last summer $10 for a pint of actual good beer at Wrigley, Goose Island Green Line. There were a lot of other choices but that stand was 20' from the bleachers.

SAN JUAN, P. R. —One year from today, the Mets will add to their payroll a 47-year-old, past-his-prime power hitter who has a reputation as a malcontent—a player who has been retired from professional baseball for nine years and won't play another game again.

Nevertheless, starting on July 1, 2011, Bobby Bonilla will remain on the franchise's payroll for 25 years, collecting an annual salary of $1, 193, 248. 20. Those are the terms the Mets agreed to Jan. 3, 2000, when they bought out the final year of Mr. Bonilla's contract.

"That beautiful thing, " he said here Monday.

Los Tigers have departed Boston,
bye-bye greenie monstrosity, cool gimmick but still a gimmick,
bye-bye City Connect Unis, hope you make the connection,
bye-bye your cousin from Boston, don't look now dude but it ain't a micro-brew,
bye-bye lobster mac 'n cheese, do the Martha Vineyard residents like it?
We'll see ya all next year and put away that damn broom.

Crazy coast to coast road trip Boston, Arizona and San Francisco. And 2 days off on the road, today and Monday.
I suppose it's been done but I wonder what the flights are like from Seattle to Miami?
Can't wait to play the Giants, if los Tigres sweep the 2 game series (is 2 called a series?) then we'll be 2-4 in the last 6 they played going back to 2012 {#Flamed}

Didn't get bothered by the BoSox sweep because it was smothered up by some great news.
Chris Fetter was the pitching coach for U of Michigan, 2019 took them to the college WS. MLB teams have been calling D-Backs, Yanks and others. He always turned them down.
A.J. Hinch got the managing job in Detroit and Fetter came aboard. The last 2 seasons have been impressive, the bullpen this year was running neck and neck with the Dodgers.
Then the storm hit. U of M's head baseball coach left for Clemson. Rumors roared. On top of that A.J.has an opt-out at the end of this year.
Fetter to U of M and A.J. to maybe someplace like the Angels who have both the money and the need?
Panic over, Fetter told the U to not consider him for the job. I have to believe that the owner, GM, AJ and Fetter got it all aired out. 
And you know the cards that A.J. & Fetter were holding are a lot better than the ones Ilitch & Avila were holding.
Ths band didn't break up after all.

Last issue:
El Mago has heated up and ready to take his magic to the desert and the so called Paris by the bay.

That's it from the Michigan desk, over to you.

Jays @ ChiSox on TV now, would gave preferred the other option Mets @ Houston.
Wednesdays and Thursdays have become my favorite days of the week with day time get-away-day  games.

***
If the division is decided on outfield play then the Sox ain't got a chance. 
3 innings in and 3 odd minor league type plays.

Before Saturday I thought the Tigers were going to catch the rath of Michigan sports fans, which btw are closely related to Michigan MAGA fans.
Kidnap the governor, storm election offices in Detroit etc. Like I said previously they wanted blood.
Saturday they called up Riley Greene who would have made the team in April but broke his foot a few days before spring training was over.

Two games and 2 wins later all is well, we are all wearing nice stripey stripes now. 
Drafted out of high school in 2019 now here he is ready to "win some ball games!"
U of Fla wanted him when he was 14 but down south they marry at 14, this guy is special.
In 2 games he has 4 walks, Tigers might get that in 4 games.
Bloop flare in first at bat for first hit.
But here's what I love about him, his 3rd MLB at bat starts with him in a 0-2 hole, 5 pitches later he's trotting to 1st with a walk.
And the other guys followed this weekend with better at bats.
