    I need to get out in the yard more often. Cards have exploded.

    Is it okay to scoreboard watch now? Brewers and Cubs in tie games. Pirates up by two.

    Now I recall why I kept working instead of retiring.

    Fun to watch Cecil at the plate.
    7th plate appearance in an 11 year professional career. First plate appearance in 5 years. He was robbed of a hit by the second baseman on a rocket to RF.
    Classic.

    The years are flying by. Letterman is 70 now.

    Reds announcers commented on how Cecil looked comfortable swinging the bat.

    Souza hits walkoff HR in the 9th to beat the Brewers.

    First road series win since April (vs Brewers) according to Ken Horton. Need a few more of those.

    Now it looks like the Cubs will lose to the Nats. Nats piled in on late. Pirates lost their lead too, and are now in extra innings with the Pads. Good day for the Cards.

    Chubbs yield grand salmi in the top of the eighth and lose to Nats 9-4.

    Wow how is this team under .500 starting the second week of August and only 3.5 out of first in the division. Good win today. Baseball can be a funny game sometimes.

    Man, Letterman is looking old. I like the original Angels hat the guy to the left of Letterman is wearing. I still think those hats blow away the current one, and that the Angels should go back to it.

    So we outscore the Redlegs by 12 in the series, yet only win 2 of 3. It’s just been that kind of year.

    Jose Martinez reminds me a bit of Jesus Alou, who is probably not remembered by anyone here. Alou had a real herky-jerky approach to hitting, fidgeting and moving his head all around, but when the camera would do a freeze-frame of him when the bat met the ball, his head was right on the ball.

    Bonus points if we remember him and the fact that he and his two brother are the only three brothers to hit in the same half inning?

    The Alou brothers (Felipe, Matty & Jesus) also had a few innings with the Giants where they combined to play all three OF positions simultaneously.
