Name the MLB club that has produced the most Cy Young Award winners?

Donald Trump will be in H-Town on May 14. Good! It is good for the base!

We all know the Donald Trump and Trump wannabe definition of Mexican: rapists, murderers and drug dealers. They look down on Mexicans and have no respect for Mexico and its people.  There is a racism factor involved.

Mine is 180 degrees from theirs. Mine is based on admiration, respect, love, hard work, family, blood and history. I am Mexican. And proud. I have family there. My four grandparents were born there.

UH’s Raul Ramos has a guest column on Mexico today in Burkablog and here is how it starts:

I admit to taking it personally last week when President Donald Trump announced that he was ordering the American military to fortify the border with Mexico. After all, I am someone with family on both sides of the border. By contrast, my Mexican cousins in the business world hardly seemed fazed by Trump’s move. That’s because a decade earlier, they had begun shifting their business contacts away from the United States and toward China and the Middle East.

Here is the entire Ramos column: https://www.texasmonthly.com/opinion/american-troops-mexican-politics-underestimating-neighbor/.

You need to read this column. Good for Mexico.

Commentary has absolutely no respect for this phony.   Totally spineless.  I am talking about Paul Ryan.

Here is headline from a Politico story today:

The tragedy of Paul Ryan

He began as a Jack kemp conservative.

He ended as Donald Trump’s man on Capitol Hill.

This is from Rick Wilson in Daily Beast today:

Ryan owns his share of the blame; too often, he behaved as if he was some deferential junior VP at a Trump resort and not the leader of the House of Representatives in a co-equal branch of government. The idea, popular among the House leadership, that a diet of ass-kissing and deference would make Trump into a normal president who didn’t need the political equivalent of Depends was always a strategic mistake.

Ryan is now paying the price. The rest of his caucus will pay in the fall.

Saying he is “Trump’s man” is too generous.  More like Trump’s sap.

The sooner Ryan is off the stage, the better. What a phony and a chump.

Dodger pitchers of course have won the Cy Young Award 12 times.

Bregman’s bat came alive yesterday. We still lost in walk-off fashion. Stuff happens.
