Life, What a Ride!

Too much to cover over the last two weeks. Moving forward into the World Series realm of life. The Cleveland Indians eliminated the Toronto Blue Jays and delighted my vengeful little heart. If my Rangers aren't in it, then the team that swept them should be at home watching the games, too. At press time, the Cubs were leading the Dodgers in the top of the sixth inning. It does not bode well for the LA club.

Crunch Time


What is happening in the mind of Odell Beckham, Jr.? He was not as successful as he had hoped in last night's loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He has been flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct more than once in this young season. It's time to settle down, young man.


The AL Wild Card game with Baltimore at Toronto happens tonight. Go, Orioles! I personally do not want to deal with José Bautista and some of his team mates until we have to during the regular season of 2017. Beat them soundly tonight, O's!

A Weeping HR and a Donnybrook

The Miami Marlins won my heart with their emotional victory after José Fernández's untimely death. The crazy right-handed batting stance done by left-handed Dee Gordon followed by his monster home run. I will never again see a grown man rounding the bases with tears openly flowing down his face. The hats on the mound. All of them wearing his jersey name and number. RIP, Jo-Fez.

Tuesday's Lineup

  1. Red Sox at Yankees
  2. Diamondbacks at Nationals
  3. Cubs at Pirates - I want the Bucs to win this one and get closer to .500.
  4. Orioles at Blue Jays
  5. Indians at Tigers
  6. Phillies at Braves
  7. Mets at Marlins
  8. Twins at Royals
  9. Brewers at Rangers
  10. Rays at White Sox
  11. Mariners at Astros
  12. Reds at Cardinals
  13. Athletics at Angels
  14. Dodgers at Padres
  15. Rockies at Giants

Monday Wrap Up
Batting average: I managed to get 50 percent today. I was glad about the Marlins' victory. It was exciting to see the Yankees and Blue Jays mix it up. Happ should have been warned and tossed in my humble opinion. Yankees were not the only guilty parties last night.

  3. Yankees at Blue Jays - what a donnybrook!

A Bit of Disbelief

Golf is not a sport I watch too often, but even I know of the legendary Arnold Palmer who passed away yesterday at the age of 87. Rest in peace!

NFL Wrap Up
  1. Arizona at Buffalo- I was flabbergasted by this one. Just gobsmacked at the end results. Without NFL Redzone, I had to use my ESPN app to keep up. Head Scratcher!
  2. Oakland at Tennessee- I had a feeling I should not have picked against the silver and black.
  3. Cleveland at Miami
  4. Baltimore at Jacksonville
  5. Detroit at Green Bay
  6. Denver at Cincinnati
  7. Minnesota at Carolina- Are you kidding me? My son was not happy about this result. No way.
  8. Washington at NY Giants
  9. Los Angeles at Tampa Bay- Good for the Rams who are surprising everyone. Seattle paid the price last week. 
  10. San Francisco at Seattle- Good.
  11. NY Jets at Kansas City
  12. San Diego at Indianapolis
  13. Pittsburgh at Philadelphia - What on Earth happened to Pittsburgh? Not even a "C" game to be found. Ugh. Head Scratcher.
  14. Chicago at Dallas- Okay, that means we have a 2-1 record in the NFL East. What will Stephen A. Smith have to say about it on FirstTake this morning?
For Monday Night Football on ESPN, I am picking the Saints to earn their first win over the visiting Falcons in a divisional game.


Monday Games
  1. Diamondbacks at Nationals
  2. Cubs at Pirates - win 100 but against my Andrew and Starling. Boo.
  3. Yankees at Blue Jays
  4. Indians at Tigers - only because I want the Rangers to have home field advantage!
  5. Mets at Marlins - For sentimental reasons and José Fernández.
  6. Brewers at Rangers
  7. Rays at White Sox
  8. Mariners at Astros
  9. Reds at Cardinals
  10. Athletics at Angels

  2. ChiSox vs. Cleveland
  3. Kansas City vs. Detroit
  4. Philadelphia vs. NY Mets
