To The 28th

Name the MLB club with the lowest team batting average this season?

An appeals court ordered the City of H-Town and the Houston Firefighters to mediation. Here is from the Chron:

The latest order cranks up pressure on (Mayor Sylvester) Turner and the firefighters to work together to resolve the issues, said Josh Blackman, an associate professor at the South Texas College of Law Houston.

“Maybe they were hoping the court would bail them out, but the courts aren’t going to assist in this negotiation,” he said. “Why would the court want to get involved in this? It’s such a disaster.”

Jessica Cisneros is a candidate for the Democratic Party’s nomination for Congress in Texas’ 28th District. The incumbent is Cong. Henry Cuellar. Cisneros interned in Cong.
