The Formerly Long Lost Lady

I took a few days away this week but am going to submit my predictions for tonight's baseball games. Life keeps moving forward one day at a time, one hour at a time, one minute at a time, and one second at a time. Even when it seems at a standstill, the Earth is still rotating on its axis.

The American League Prevails

The boys of summer are enjoying some down time away from the spotlight and the ball park. Congratulations to the American League All-Stars in their win over the National League All-Stars. I wanted Big Papi to crush one out of Petco, but José Fernández had other ideas. Rascal!

Let's hope the break gives the Texas Rangers the impetus needed to use that AL home field advantage in the World Series. #NeverGiveUp

Play resumes on Friday, and I will be ready.
