Let me tell you why the Astros are 1 game behind the Dodgers for best overall record. Over the past 30 games, we have four Astros players in the MLB top ten of the batting average category. Care to name the four Astros?

Donald Trump went with a racist tweet on B’More Saturday morning. Leave it to the B’More Sun E-Board to put out a take yesterday and here is how it ended – classic:

Finally, while we would not sink to name-calling in the Trumpian manner — or ruefully point out that he failed to spell the congressman’s name correctly (it’s Cummings, not Cumming) — we would tell the most dishonest man to ever occupy the Oval Office, the mocker of war heroes, the gleeful grabber of women’s private parts, the serial bankrupter of businesses, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the guy who insisted there are “good people” among murderous neo-Nazis that he’s still not fooling most Americans into believing he’s even slightly competent in his current post. Or that he possesses a scintilla of integrity. Better to have some vermin living in your neighborhood than to be one.

Here is the entire take: https://www.baltimoresun.com/opinion/editorial/bs-ed-0728-trump-baltimore-20190727-k6ac4yvnpvcczlaexdfglifada-story.html.

Trump’s Saturday morning tweet was racist, no question. The jig is up on Trump. It is pretty obvious by now that he knows we all know he is a racist and he is just not going to have it any other way. He won’t drop an n-bomb or admit he is racist, but he has now accepted that the world knows he is a racist and he will deal with it accordingly. How much longer will the rest of the GOP tolerate and defend this racism? You can tell by the body language of the GOP talking heads on TV that defending Trump is becoming more difficult. Their defense of Trump is lame at best.

What about Moscow Mitch being Moscow Mitch? It is pretty clear that Moscow Mitch won’t move forward with funding for our elections infrastructure because he wants Putin involved in the 2020 elections.

A credit card of mine was declined this weekend at a business establishment. When I got back to my place, I went online and sure enough the credit card site said to call a number because of an issue with my card. I called and they said they flagged my card, they wouldn’t tell me why, and wanted my cell number so they could text me a link where I was to go and visually tape myself on camera for their authentication process. I said no thanks, hung up, and I won’t be using that card.

Over the past 30 games, Yuli Gurriel leads MLB with a .404 batting average, Jose Altuve is number 3 with .374, Michael Brantley with a .367 is number 7, and at number 9 is Yordan Alvarez with a .361 batting average of course.

Cleveland pitcher Trevor Bauer is looking at a fine and suspension for losing it yesterday. Throwing the ball over the centerfield wall will follow him the rest of his career.

We are sizzling and we have the day off then play a three game series in Cleveland.
