Yesterday’s ruling on Arizona’s SB 1070 is good news and bad news.  The good news is Latino folks in Arizona won’t have to show papers for now at the drop of a hat.  The bad news for Dems is that those in the U.S. of A. that support the law are probably going to be more energized to go vote this fall.  The other bad news for Dems is that some Latinos might feel relieved, become complacent and not have a sense of urgency when it comes to voting.  Stay tuned!

Adios, Roy O.?   It looks like Roy O. is getting his wish.   He could be going to Philadelphia. 

Last night, a Cleveland Indian fan tried to be a bit too cute and showed up at Progressive Field (their yard) wearing a Lebron James Miami Heat jersey.  After being verbally harassed he needed a security escort to leave the stadium.  I’m thinking that if someone comes to The Yard this weekend wearing a Roy O. Phillies jersey, ‘Stros fans will just shrug or yawn.

If Roy O. does leave, who will be the last batter he faced while wearing the brick red?

Today was supposed to be an off day.  It looks like it will be a busy day over at The Yard.

Jay Bruce of course of the Reds grounded out to second to end the top of the fifth.  Roy O. was lifted for a pinch hitter in the bottom of the fifth.

We got the Brewers coming in for three this weekend.  Roy O. will probably not get to tie the team record for wins Friday night.  The ‘Stros will get to visit Roy O. in Philly next month (August 23 – 26).
