Late innings.

As we enter last week of this crazy MLB season, it’s going to be hard to take this post season really seriously anyway.

But both of NL Wild card teams could quite possibly come from NL Central. And how big an advantage has it been to have all those intra-division games against the 15-39, now .278, Pittsburgh Pirates?

Only two teams in last 60 years have had worse than .278 winning percentage, and one of them was the 1962 Mets.

Trump gives himself an A+ on COVID 19 response. Does Donald think he had someone else take that test for him too?

DOJ has designated New York City, Portland and Seattle as “anarchist jurisdictions,” saying they have “refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities.” By that definition the real anarchist jurisdiction is 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Not a lot of levity in 2020 but Georgia QAnon candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene mocking @AOC‘s intellect in a misspelled tweet -“single handily [sic]putting an end to all ‘dumb blonde’ jokes” – is one of the best dumb blonde punchlines of the year.

Florida Governor and Donald Trump mini-me Ron De Santis issued a proclamation today, which might well be unconstitutional.

But it makes it a felony to be part of any “disorderly assembly” of 7 or more that causes ANY damage. (a trampled lawn, an overturned trash can, one person with spray pain.) Or obstructing traffic….and there’s no bail until first appearance for anyone arrested.

Hey Florida. If you’re not afraid, you’re not paying attention. These are the rules of a police state.

Think Ron DeSantis’s newly declared police state doesn’t affect you because you don’t live in Florida? It’s not a stretch to say based on Florida Governor’s new rules he could go after tourists with Biden t-shirts or bumper stickers.

RBG’s dying words, dictated to her granddaughter -“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” Trump today now accused Democrats of making those words up. There is no bottom. And we keep getting deeper.

Some Republicans keep saying President is President for 4 years & should be able to choose, or at least get vote on his choice for #SCOTUS, no matter when vacancy occurs. So since Obama didn’t get even a vote on his choice let’s correct that & have Trump nominate Merrick Garland.

Did Trump order CDC to remove language on aerosol transmission of COVID-19 because someone told Donald it’s depressing attendance at his vanity rallies?

In 2016, some non-voters and third party voters thought – how bad could it be? If 2020 hasn’t answered that question enough for you yet, how about losing both healthcare AND Roe v. Wade?

Many younger people, espec. women, have no idea how much RBG had to fight. Had brief thoughts of being a vet, until it occurred to me I HATE blood. But high school guidance counselor even in late 70s said women wouldn’t get into vet schools anyway, because we’d have families.

Let’s put this a different way, if you worked at company with capricious CEO who’d fired most of the people he hired & then referred to them as “idiots” & “losers” and worse, would you allow him to make a rush pick for a lifetime appointment to the company board?

Amy Klobuchar points out that when chief justice died about a month before 1864 Presidential election, Abraham Lincoln didn’t nominate his replacement until after he had won re-election. How long until Trump calls Lincoln a “loser?”

    I’m not saying the NY Mets are desperate to make the playoffs, but they have just invited all the teams ahead of them in the wild card race to happy hour
