Billionaire Blues

Dallas Keuchel is still a free agent. How many times was he our Opening Day starting pitcher?

Well, the winner of the #TXHD145RunoffSpecialElection will be 149th in seniority in the Texas House.

Let’s see. Billionaires have been putting dough into the political system and trying to tilt the results in their favor. Some folks are getting fed up with this and are now proposing to tax billionaires more. They asked for it. Commentary is predicting that billionaires’ arses will get taxed more for sure. The political climate is headed that way. The billionaire blues so to speak.

Speaking of billionaires, it looks like collusion to me. Commentary is talking about Spring Training opening today and there are still great players unsigned. Here is what Justin Verlander tweeted yesterday:

100 or so free agents left unsigned. System is broken. They blame “rebuilding” but that’s BS. You’re telling me you couldn’t sign Bryce or Manny for 10 years and go from there? Seems like a good place to start a rebuild to me. 26-36 is a great performance window too.

When are the billionaire owners going to learn that they won’t win this war?

All 30 Major League teams will wear special “MLB 150” patches on their uniforms for the entire 2019 season in honor of the 150th anniversary of the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings, the first openly all-salaried professional baseball team.

Every club will also sport MLB 150 patches on its caps on Opening Day, March 28 — the first time a league-wide anniversary will be commemorated on caps.

Dallas Keuchel of course was our Opening Day starting pitcher from 2015-2017.

That’s all I have.
