Giant attitude?

July 16, 2019

Yeah, it’s a REALLY big long shot, I get it. But when a team gets to within 3 other teams and 3 games of the wild card….

Are some Mets fans also saying “So you’re saying there’s a chance?”

 

You know the wild card insanity is reaching the edge of reality when you see Phillies beat Dodgers with 9th inning walkoff and as SF fan you have to think, okay, great, but Philadelphia is a more realistic target….

 

Kevin Durant now says he was sold on the Nets’ “system.” Right a system that has produced so many winning teams in the past?

WNBA suspended Los Angeles’ Sparks’ Riquna Williams for 10 games as a result of a domestic violence incident involving her ex-girlfriend in December. This is not the equality women’s sports really wanted.

Congratulation to “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,’ has 20 Emmy nominations. The most for any show without a high body count.

Since John Paul Stevens criticized Trump imagine we won’t be hearing any condolences from the White House.

Nancy Pelosi quoted a former Democratic president today: “If we ever close the door to new Americans, our leadership in the world would soon be lost.” Oh wait, my bad, the quote is accurate. But it’s from Ronald Reagan.

Who’d a thunk we’d miss George H.W.Bush talking about his grandchildren, “the little brown ones?”

Trump tweets “I don’t have a Racist bone in my body! ” True. Not a Racist bone.  More like 206 of them.

We know Trump isn’t racist because he’s also told former rival Ted Cruz to go back to Canada, and Marco Rubio to go back to Cuba. Oh wait, never mind.

Mitch McConnell sidestepped question on how he would feel if someone told his wife Elaine Chao to go back to Taiwan; it barely made news cycle I’m old enough to remember Michael Dukakis maybe losing election over mishandling death penalty question on if his wife were murdered.

If there are pictures of Trump with an under-age girl in Epstein’s safe how many Republicans will vote to condemn him?

Who is this team?

So what’s odder, SF Giants winning the first game of a doubleheader at Coors Field 19-2

Or them winning the nightcap 2-1?

The second game of SF Giants Colorado Rockies double header was delayed. No reason given but perhaps scorekeeper from game one was still recovering from exhaustion?

Before today, Brandon Crawford had 30 RBI’s for the season. Today he had 9.

Of 15 teams in the NL, over 90 games in, all but 2 are now within 5 games of .500

 

Meanwhile, in the AL, the Yankees, Twins and Astros, at 59, 58, and 59 wins, all have more wins than the Orioles and Tigers combined.

The Memphis Grizzlies won the NBA summer league championship. So will they raise a banner?

 

Warriors GM Bob Myers said Monday that his team did not acquire D’Angelo Russell just to flip him in another trade.  Possible translation – no one’s offered us enough for him yet?

 

That moment you turn on The Bachelorette  for a while because it’s less absurd than the news.

Trump ” All I’m saying, they want to leave, they can leave.” Would he say the same to his MAGA base when a Democrat wins in 2020?

Pence’s chief of staff Marc Short said Trump’s tweets about four U.S. congresswomen were not racist because Donald has an ”Asian woman of color in his Cabinet” (Elaine Chao) And how many Asians are being rounded up for deportation?

Just a note. Of the four progressive Democratic congresswomen who held a press conference responding to Trump’s tweets and lies today, more of them were born in the US than Donald’s three wives.

GOP Rep. James Comer: “Personally, I don’t criticize other members of Congress on Twitter. I wish the president would not do that. But that’s his style, and he’s going to continue to do that.”
Excuse me – Pink hair is a style. A spray tan is a style. Being a racist flaming a**hole is not a “style.”

 

Can we tell MAGAers there’s a Trump rally at Area 51?
