That Was Quick

Name the team with the lousiest record in MLB?

That was quick is what some folks were saying yesterday when the Houston Firefighters endorsed H-Town Council Member Dwight Boykins for mayor. Commentary has said it before. Mayor Turner doesn’t become Mayor Turner without the endorsement of the Houston Firefighters in 2015.

Thanks to your father for his service to our nation.
Got to say, there is nothing like having a “Ma Deuce” to fend off the bad guys.

It looks like Dallas Keuchel will join The ATL.

At 19-43, B’More and the Royals of course are tied for the lousiest record in MLB.

B’More is in town for three this weekend.
