Day After Christmas

Name the MLB team whose batters struck out the least this past season?

There is really not much to say on the day after Christmas other than to say according to twitter, ‘Stros fans got a lot of World Series gifts for Christmas. It was no different in our living room yesterday as World Series hoodies, t-shirts, jackets, Christmas tree ornaments, koozies, license plate frames, and photos were unwrapped. Cool.

This is probably one of the best lines I have heard about the ‘Stros this season:

“They have the best chance to win the World Series. That’s why we play, right?”

It came from our new reliever, Joe Smith, right after he signed with the club. We haven’t heard a line like that said about our teams since the Rockets days of the mid-1990s.

The E-Board gave the Thumbs down Saturday to Sen. Ted Cruz on here:

(Thumbs down) Ted Cruz is a senator but so was Jar Jar Binks. These days both of them command the same degree of respect. The senator, who should be fighting to get us a Harvey recovery bill, instead took to Twitter to engage in mud slinging with the actor who plays Luke Skywalker. Or to paraphrase Obi Wan Kenobi, “This is not the droid you’re looking for, Senator Cruz.”

What else can you say?   Who likes this fella anyway?

I don’t have anything to say about the Texans other than to say their owner has had a rough year.

The ‘Stros’ hitters of course struck out the least in MLB this past season with 1,087 Ks.

I also got me a Beatles 2018 wall calendar yesterday – nice.
