Summer Politics

The summer kicked off yesterday with this front page story in the Chron on the race for H-Town mayor. Here it is: http://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/politics/houston/article/Rebuild-Houston-could-prove-a-drain-on-mayor-s-6338698.php?t=e6fed25edeb2e7d3f0&cmpid=twitter-premium.

Hey, you get on the front page. What else can you ask for? I am thinking the Bill King campaign got a good bump. After all, so far “back to basics” is the only line that is getting some run.

The ‘Stros now have 103 dingers to lead all MLB clubs. Name the team with the least amount of dingers?

It turns out someone real close to Commentary has a significant and major interest in the newest and hottest club in H-Town. That’s cool. Of course, I am not much of a club person so I’ll just have to rely on others to tell me how it is going.

Who would have thought that seventy-one games into the season we would have the third best record in MLB? Of course, we still have not made it to ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. The next ten games will certainly be a test. We have three in Anaheim. Then the Yankees are in for four, followed by the Royals for three.

The ATL only have 41 team dingers of course.

It looks like Jose Altuve will be back in the starting lineup this evening and we are three and a half up.
