Bad boys

October 3, 2018

MLB suspended Cubs Shortstop Addison Russell 40 games, retroactive to Sept 22, over alleged domestic violence. Well thanks to Brewers he won’t miss any playoff games.

Meanwhile, University of Georgia dismissed star 1st baseman Adam Sasser from the baseball team for allegedly shooting racist slurs at Georgia QB Justin Fields during last week’s game..
Kudos to the Bulldogs for doing the right thing. Of course, it probably doesn’t hurt that for Georgia fans, football rules!

 

So what was the difference in the end between the Giants and A’s seasons? About three days.

 

And Oakland A’s offense tonight did a very good SF Giants imitation.

Cubs say after being eliminated that they can “learn from losing.” Does this mean the Orioles are the smartest team in baseball?

Showalter has been fired as Orioles manager. Of course, if Baltimore really wanted to punish Buck, they’d have made him come back for another year.

Rockies advanced to NLDS despite having played in Denver Sunday, Los Angeles Monday and Chicago Tuesday. Assuming they weren’t on United because their bats and other equipment made it with them.

 

Wow. Senate passed a bill 93-6 ordering airlines to come up with minimum requirements for seat width and pitch. Guess even the worst asses in DC still care about their own asses.

Megyn Kelly says of letter wrote Kavanaugh in which he describes himself and his friends as “loud, obnoxious drunks with prolific pukers among us,” shows us “you will be so impressed at the responsibility of this young man.”
Gosh, amazed then Brett didn’t include the letter in his college applications.

Jeff Flake is not happy about Trump bashing Christine Ford last night “To discuss something this sensitive at a political rally is just not right. It’s just not right. I wish he hadn’t have done it. I’ll just say, it’s kind of appalling.”
Gosh, if there were only something Flake could do about it..?

Wait, can’t you block calls from a predator?#PresidentialAlert

Seven police officers shot by a white guy in Florence, SC, and only “thoughts and prayers” from Donald Trump
Had shooter been an immigrant, he’d be tweeting nonstop on about his bleeping wall.

The person responsible for “destroying Brett Kavanaugh’s good name” is Brett Kavanaugh.

High time, in the old town, tonight.

So a week ago there was a chance both Cubs and Cardinals might both make it into to NLDS playoffs at least. Now Brewers and Rockies have advanced instead.
To Fox and Joe Buck – womp, womp.

How late are dispensaries open in Denver? Asking for a lot of Rockies fan friends.

Just wondering, after Rockies beat Cubs tonight did  Fox Sports and ESPN think of demanding the wild-card game be changed to “best two out of three?”

Listening to ESPN’s Matt Vasgersian raving on and on about how great a postseason pitcher Jon Lester is….. two words. Madison Bumgarner.

Minnesota manager Paul Molitor was fired after leading the Twins to a 78-84 record. Orioles fans wonder, was he fired for over-achieving?

Next year, SF Giants just announced 20% discount on all food, beverage and merchandise purchases for season ticket holders at concession stands. So you’ll only need to take out a small loan for a few beers.

NFL suspended Seahawks LB Mychal Kendricks indefinitely after he pleaded guilty to insider trading charges. Silly Kendricks, if you want to get away with insider trading in the NFL, you’d better be an owner.

To be fair, we should remember that all the GOP men defending Brett Kavanaugh and attacking his accusers also were defending Bill Clinton and Al Franken. Oh wait, never mind.

So if President Obama started incoherently ranting and lying at his campaign rallies for Democrats would media start covering much them as much as they cover Trump’s?

Wall Street Journal reports the President of the United States, with his son, personally guided efforts in February to keep a porn star from talking about their affair, and it’s not even this morning’s lead story. Once again, the Onion  is going ‘We give up.”

Now Donald Trump says it’s a “very scary time for young men in America.”
Right, like Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Botham Jean….

Trump tonight mocked Christine Blasley Ford at his MAGA rally in Mississippi. Maybe he thinks Melania isn’t watching CNN in Africa?   

Trump on Dr. Ford “She had ONE beer yet can’t remember anything.” Meanwhile Trump doesn’t drink at all and can’t remember what he said yesterday.
