Galling. Sick.

I was watching the El Paso Mayor on CNN announce Donald Trump’s visit to, err invasion of El Paso tomorrow, and it was clear from his carefully chosen words and body language that he did not want the visit.

Galling. Trump has no shame. His isn’t a visit, it’s an invasion.

El Paso has suffered enough.The next 24 hours should be interesting.

Wow! I hope the Dallas Morning News doesn’t get upset at me putting out this story on hate at Globe Life Park:

CLEVELAND — The Rangers are investigating an incident of harassment toward a Hispanic family from Fort Worth that took place at Globe Life Park in Arlington only hours after the deadly Walmart shooting in El Paso Saturday.

According to a Facebook post by Jessica Romero, since viewed more than 47,000 times, a man vocally complained about having Hispanic families sitting in front of and behind them at the stadium. The fan is pictured in the Romero family’s selfie flashing an obscene gesture.

“He made it perfectly clear during the second inning that he is not a fan of Hispanics,” Romero wrote. “And he just so happened to have a Hispanic family [us] sitting in front of him and another one sitting directly behind him. During the second inning the little boy behind him who looked to be about Nomar’s [her son] age kicked the back of his chair. And for the next three innings I had to hear him complain about all the illegal immigrants that were surrounding him at the game. That he should kick little Speedy Gonzalez all the way back to Mexico for kicking his seat. That Trump needs to hurry and build the wall and send all these illegals back so they won’t be kicking his seat.

“We left during the 5th inning,” she wrote. “Sadly this is not the first or the last time we will ever experience this kind of racism.”

The Romeros did not respond to requests for comments from The Dallas Morning News Monday. The Rangers have reached out to the family and said such harassment is a violation of the club’s code of conduct for fans.

“The Rangers are committed to providing all of our guests with a safe and enjoyable experience and we are truly sorry that this family was subjected to this offensive behavior at Saturday’s game,” the club said in a statement. “There is no place at Globe Life Park in Arlington for this type of conduct to occur. After learning of this incident on Sunday, we have reached out to the Romero family and pledge to make their next trip to Globe Life Park a memorable and enjoyable experience.”


I checked out Ms. Romero’s Facebook post which included the selfie and the racist dumbarse is shooting the bird, so now the whole universe can get to know him. What a racist dumbarse!

This was in the Chron this past weekend:

Major League Baseball named Yuli Gurriel, Gerrit Cole and Yordan Alvarez the Player, Pitcher and Rookie of the Month of July in the American League.

The last team to earn three winners in one month was the Minnesota Twins in June of 2006 (Joe Mauer, Johan Santana and Francisco Liriano).

Cole and Alvarez also won their respective awards for June.

Zack Greinke goes tonight on Dollar Dog Night!  I can’t make it. Drats!

Again, no MLB question today.
