Royals Flush

Last night’s Meyerland Dems candidate forum was held. That’s about all I can say. Candidates got to speak and take a couple or so questions. That’s it. No headlines. More candidates and operatives than Meyerland Dems in attendance.

So in local politics, today is an OFFICIAL RAINOUT!

Only one pitcher in MLB has tossed 100 plus innings this season – name him?

This season, the MLB know-it-alls decided to go with online voting only for the 2015 MLB All Star Game starting lineups. They did away with the hanging chads and they are probably regretting their decision this morning. Seven members of the KC Royals are leading in the vote count. I am ready to call five of those states, err positions – catcher, third base, shortstop, and two in the outfield. A .210 hitting Omar Infante has a lead over Jose Altuve for second base and Eric Hosmer has a lead over Miguel Cabrera for first base who is hitting .344 and arguably the best hitter in MLB.

I am not going to get worked up over this because KC knows how to turn out its vote. I did like the old way of voting because I always scored a t-shirt for bringing 750 voters or so to the polls.

Infante over Altuve is getting a lot of national run so I suspect Altuve will get a bounce over the next two weeks of voting and can maybe make a comeback. Meanwhile, the know-it-alls at MLB are probably scratching their heads and trying to figure out how to devise a voting system that makes sense to folks outside of Missouri.

Dallas Keuchel of course with an 8-2 record and 2.04 ERA has tossed 101 1/3 innings to lead MLB.

Two SpringerDingers help get us a win last night. We still have a two and a half game lead over the Rangers and wrap up the homie this afternoon.

Did you know that we still have 13 games left to play against the Rangers?
