MLB and High School Football

I've got to figure out my percentages for the month of August and report my prediction "batting average." Here is the run-down from Friday's MLB games.
  1. Miami at Washington                        Nope! Burned again!
  2. San Diego at Philadelphia                 Yes!
  3. Colorado at Pittsburgh                      Yes!
  4. Detroit at Toronto                              Yes, what did you expect?
  5. LA Angels at Cleveland                     No, the Tribe managed to win.
  6. Boston at NY Mets                            No, and I was sad.
  7. Kansas City at Tampa Bay                Yes!
  8. NY Yankees at Atlanta                      Yes, that’s what you call a whooping.
  9. Baltimore at Texas                             Yes!
  10. Seattle at ChiSox                                No, Mariners blanked them.
  11. Houston at Minnesota                        No, this one actually shocked me.
  12. Cincinnati at Milwaukee                    No, and wrong again. Another goose egg.
  13. Oakland at Arizona                            Yes, I was beginning to wonder about my choices.
  14. ChiCubs at LA Dodgers                    Yes, and Vin Scully will be back for his 67th year. Woo-hoo!
  15. St. Louis at San Francisco                  No, and I’m glad to be wrong.
Saturday, August 29, 2015 – the last one of the month!
  1. Tigers at Blue Jays                  Blue Jays
  2. Red Sox at Mets                      Mets get revenge.
  3. Cardinals at Giants                 Giants keep happy dance going.
  4. Royals at Rays                        Royals
  5. Marlins at Nationals                Marlins because I keep getting burned by the Nats.
  6. Padres at Phillies                     Phillies
  7. Rockies at Pirates                    Pirates
  8. Mariners at White Sox            White Sox, definitely!
  9. Angels at Indians                    Tribe again.
  10. Reds at Brewers                      Reds don’t let me down.
  11. Astros at Twins                       Astros do your magic.
  12. Yankees at Braves                  Yankees, sigh.
  13. Orioles at Rangers                   Orioles snap their losing streak ways at my Rangers’ expense.
  14. Athletics at Diamondbacks     D-backs again.
  15. Cubs at Dodgers                     Cubs get this one since Kershaw pitched last night.

Football Time
Can you feel a slight change in the air as we begin to cool off from our triple-digit temperatures? It’s time for high school gridiron action! My alma mater Plano East Senior High beat Lake Highlands 36-14. That’s a nice way to start the season. East! East! East! Mama’s Lincoln Tigers need to regroup after being handed a defeat by Ft. Worth Dunbar. Next week, they face Hillcrest. Good luck, Tigers!

Lady Grid out.

MLB Post Script:  As it turns out, if my math is correct, I've predicted correctly for about 57.5 percent of the time. That's not bad for a girl who never played softball and has become quietly addicted to MLB Network over the past few months. Shh, don't tell. LG
