Can’t Forget the Motor City, 13-16 101

The A’s face an AL Central team for the first time in regular-season play in 19 months. OK, Miguel Cabrera and…hmmmm, there are several names I recognize but without looking at the roster it’s tough to name more than a half-dozen; Robbie Grossman is leading off and DHing tonight, and this is where Renato Núñez ...

Going for 2: Arizona 11, 12 172

Mostly the Super Bowl gives you two teams you don’t like. Maybe 65-90.9% of the time, depending on how low your standards are. Today’s game certainly qualifies, so I need a different metric for picking a rooting interest. Today, I will cheer on the team with the closest baseball connection. Pat Mahomes contributed a whopping ...

The most important election, until the next one 355

I figure this will not only pile up quite a few comments but also extend at least through late Wednesday, so we might as well have a dedicated November 3-4, 2020 thread.
