Dinged Toe

Tomorrow will be our 4th Game 1 of a playoff game since we have been in the American League. Name the teams we have played in the first playoff game since joining the AL?

Just so folks know, Jeff Luhnow is President of Baseball Operations and General Manager. Get it right, please.

My good friend, H-Town City Council Member Karla Cisneros dinged up her big toe yesterday evening when she was arriving at a community meeting. Commentary will spare you the very gory details. She will be hobbling around the next few days. Get well!

Governor Greg Abbott sent a threatening letter to the Mayor of Austin. He wants the City of Austin to clean up its homeless problem or else. Or ese what?

Well we get the Rays tomorrow and we don’t have to face Charlie Morton until Monday.
