Can Madbum play left field when he doesn’t pitch for the SF GIants? And bat fourth?

One of Bumgarner’s two 400 plus foot home runs was against Zack Greinke.  Clayton Kershaw has to be really happy the Dodgers didn’t open against the Giants.

 

Two blown SF Giants save in one game. Too soon to talk about the curse of Casilla?

Jared Kushner is in Iraq right now. Trying to find a location for a Trump/Scion hotel Baghdad?

Trump today in an interview with the Financial Times “Yeah, I don’t lose.” #alternativevictories?

 

More Trump to the Financial Times  “If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will.” Well, sure, now that Trump’s already used his plan to beat ISIS.

A newspaper in Juarez, Mexico says it is shutting down because too many journalists have been murdered. So yes, media attacks can get worse.
