A league of their own?

May 25, 2023

As Oakland As indicate they are ready to leave Oakland, why is Las Vegas the only likely option?

Answer, because other team in MLB potential expansion hunt look at A’s owner John Fisher and have probably decided to hold out for an actual Major League team.

In the first five innings, SF Giante challenged three calls today on the field Thursday Milwaukee

All three were overturned. Maybe time to remind umpires MLB benefits include vision insurance?

NY Mets may have messed things up with Carlos Correa but SF Giants would like to thank the Mets again for letting go of Michael Conforto. Conforto’s 11th home run of the year went 424 feet (at least) to DEEP center field.

Shawn Estes after Giants’ 5-0 shut out of the Brewers: “Keep the opposition from scoring runs and you’re going to win a lot of games.”

ICYMI, Estes signed a baseball contract out of high school but had been recruited by and admitted to Stanford.

Hey, when Shawn’s right, he’s right

Lebron James was probably just frustrated after his Lakers were swept by the Denver Nuggets, and expect him to play a few more years. But how about retiring in 2025-27 and then running for Senate in Ohio against J.D. Vance?

Now it’s Pride clothing that has some MAGA’s losing their minds.

Even though I live in San Francisco Bay Area I root for New Orleans Saints – and am not a 49ers fan. But if I’m in Target & see a display of SF 49ers merchandise, I just walk by it. See how easy that is?

CNN – If you want politicians to do 2024 Town Halls,

Pres. Biden has great surrogate advisory board.

To name a few – Sens Amy Klobuchar, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Raphael Warnock… Governors Gavin Newsom, Gretchen Whitmer, Josh Shapiro…… Invite them for town halls. Guessing they’ll show up.

Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes has been sentenced to 18 years for “seditious conspiracy.” Siri, tell me today’s biggest story you won’t hear on Fox News.


Slim odds

As A’s announced Las Vegas deal for a 30,000 person stadium, your reminder, currently only Cleveland has stadium with less than 35,000 capacity . Guessing MLB figure with Fisher as owner the team will seldom if ever need to sell postseason tickets.

And uh, the NHL Las Vegas Golden Knights are a great team, the Las Vegas Aces just won the WNBA championship, the Raiders have random moments of hope…. what makes anyone think the city would support a team on pace to be worse than the 1962 Mets.?

Florida Panthers, lowest ranked team of 8 to make it into the NHL playoffs, are now going to the Stanley Cup finals. Another team that was ranked 8th of 8 in the playoffs? The 2014 SF Giants.

Although today, 2-16 with RISP, 15 (!) left on base, three “official” errors, at least two plays that should have been errors.

SF Giants seriously gift wrap 7-1 win for the Twins, but maybe they decided to get all their Little League play out of the way for a while. #SFGiants

Today might have been the most fun former Twitter engineers have had since Muskrat bought the company.

As my friend Jon Nedry added “DeSantis had to be asking himself… “What kind of a Mickey Mouse operation are they running there?”

“I don’t have time for drama” says the Governor and Presidential candidate whose number one focus is his fight with a Mouse

Maybe DeSantis secretly now wishes he hadn’t severed relations with Disney. They’re better at streaming than Twitter and have Audio-Animatronic engineers who do a great job with robots.

GOP Sen. Rick Scott seriousy just issued a formal travel advisory warning the state of Florida is “openly hostile toward Socialists” Florida ranks #2 in country for elderly population percentage – 21.3% of residents over 65. Wonder how many are on social security?

Remember when egg prices were a daily headline? Today, Grocery Outlet near me in California advertising “Lindsey’s Gold Cage Free Grade AA Large Eggs – 2 for $3”

Thank you Brandon!

Has it occurred to these parents trying to ban children from reading things like “The Hill We Climb” that such steps will lead many many kids to search out copies of something they wouldn’t otherwise have read?

Kevin McCarthy will have House leave town for Memorial Day weekend saying the debt ceiling standoff is “not my fault.” Right, if the parents only paid the ransom the baby would have been fine…

But seriously Matt Gaetz on the debt ceiling just said this about his GOP colleagues – with his outside voice: “They don’t feel like we should negotiate with our hostage.”

Fox News “Increased interest in Coors Light & Miller Lite could lead to supply shortages.” Uh, “Molson Coors received perfect 100 score on Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index making us one of “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality” So MAGA’s gonna drink water?

On 1st anniversary of children being massacred at school in Uvalde, Ted Cruz took to Twitter with the message “Target should leave our kids the hell alone.” If you think Pride clothing is more dangerous to children than an AR-15, you just might be a deeply disturbed individual.
