Baseball Gods

Of the 9 teams remaining in the MLB playoffs, name the team with the lowest team batting average this past season?

This pretty much sums up yesterday evening:

#TeamAlvarado finishes up in @eastwoodhouston. Always enjoy their taco trucks! Thanks to our volunteers for helping us reach 45 areas in SD6 for #NationalNightOut2018!


Yup! 45 events.

Donald Trump mocked Dr. Ford yesterday and apparently, that’s Ok with Judge Kavanaugh supporters.

Donald Trump will also be campaigning for Sen. Ted Cruz. I love it!

When I was out and about yesterday and last night, I sure saw a ton of H-Town Firefighters Vote for Prop B signs – big ones too. I have not seen any vote against Prop B signs.

A couple or so months ago, I bought a new printer and signed up for a deal for printer cartridges. Yesterday, the cartridges ran out of ink, so I plopped in the new ones and I still couldn’t print. After about 30 minutes of messing with the printer, I went online and they said I had not paid for the cartridges. I checked with the payment page and they had a credit that had expired last month. There is something wrong when folks can control your printer from cyberspace. Just saying.

Commentary has said before that baseball gods do exist.  MLB and the TV honchos gave the defending World Series Champions a 1 pm start this Friday. Duh! No prime time! It’s like Games 2, 5 and 7 of the 2017 World Series never happened. Of the top 20 MLB jerseys sold this year, 3 belong to Astros. Bregsled anyone? Verlander?

Well, the baseball gods took notice last night and eliminated the Cubbies who are one of the most popular teams in America. Take that MLB and TV honchos. Don’t pi__off the baseball gods!

The Yankees of course batted .249 this past season, the lowest of all the remaining playoff teams. The Yankees also smacked 267 dingers, the most of all remaining playoff teams.

H-Town will hold an Astros pep rally at City Hall today.
