Blame game.

Former Astros manager AJ Hinch, asked by MLB Network if Houston’s 2017 World Series championship has been tainted by the sign-stealing scandal “”It’s a fair question.  And I think everyone’s going to have to draw their own conclusion.”

MLB commissioner Manfred’s report noted sign-stealing was “player-driven” and not supported by the manager, but that Hinch did not stop it.

Is it too soon to start asking the Hall of Fame quesitons?

 

 

Golden State Warriors have sold out the season in their new Chase Arena, though actual attendance has been disappointing. Perhaps the team could induce fans to show up on any given night with a contest to guess the starting line-up? 

 

Nothing is certain but death, taxes, and the 2019-20 Spurs blowing a 4th quarter lead.

And now back to insanity… sniff, sniff (Trump speech., not too many mentions.)

 

Trump talking about Scalise, and how upset his wife was when he was shot “a lot of wives wouldn’t have given a damn.” So is he talking about Ivana, Marla, and Melania?

Trump: “Want to apologize to my family for having them have to go through phony, rotten deal by some very evil & sick people. And Ivanka is here & my sons & my whole family. And that includes Barron.” Then he calls Ivanka for a hug & a kiss.’ That’s a whole DSM page in 1 minute.

New slogan for Iowa. “Florida, but with more white people and worse weather.”

 

Donald Trump Jr. calls Mitt Romney a ‘Pussy’ for voting to convict his father. Does that mean Donny thinks Donald wants to grab Mitt?

Trump: “Want to apologize to my family for having them have to go through phony, rotten deal by some very evil & sick people. And Ivanka is here & my sons & my whole family. And that includes Barron.” Then he calls Ivanka for a hug & a kiss.’ That’s a whole DSM page in 1 minute.

While we’re fussing over a few thousand votes in Iowa, Trump’s Federal Reserve Board nominee has called for ending federal deposit insurance, calling it a “government subsidy that distorts financial markets.” Banks on the honor system, what could go wrong?
