Talk about incompetence, the guys at FOX got it wrong. X-rays were negative for Fletcher, he doesn’t have a broken finger. Glad Fletcher is going to be alright

i’d be more inclined to blame the angels training staff.

You could be right. Just figured they would get the information right the first time before giving us a heads up. Which is it? Broken finger or not? There’s no rush to say if they aren’t sure.

You could be right as well, haha. I guess at least they corrected their statements from earlier.

Yeah don’t need to push it with Ohtani being up 5 runs, so I have no issue with that move

Yeah the Offense was picking up again with Fletcher leading off and looking healthy before what happened today

If they bring Marte I’m headed to Netflix or re-runs of Lucy.

Hulu and Amazon and Disney same too. Sidebar, if you didn’t see ghosts on CBS this past TV season, give it a binge watch, funny stuff too.

Right now I’m watching a series on HBOMAX called CB Strike. My son has been nagging me to watch it for months. It’s good.

Elvis was really good. Especially the guy who played Elvis. I love Tom Hanks but he was weird and creepy.

Tom Hanks character, geez!
I didn’t really like Memphis but I’d go back just for Graceland. One of those places that surprised in good ways

LanaBanana

I haven’t been to Graceland but I remember staying at a Howard Johnson’s Inn in Memphis about 20-25 years ago. The swimming pool was shaped like a guitar and the TV in the room played Elvis movies 24 hours a day

GMB had me watch Pinocchio; Hanks nailed his role there.

He usually does. I can’t think of any other movie where I didn’t like the job he did.

Have they had some graduations or concerts on this field lately??

Pretty sure Bad Bunny performed there recently, that’s why the field is so beat up

The other problem is because of the retractable roof it doesn’t always get enough sunlight. It was artificial turf for most of its inception.

Yeah heard Mark Langston say it was tough to grow grass at Minute Maid Park, so having a concert there just before teams are playing there doesn’t help. Same with what you mentioned

DowningDude

Yes, Terry mentioned it last night on the radio. They have a hard time to grow grass given the roof situation. Pretty dumb.

MVP was made to address the Best Player with the bat, and it got haywire after that. The CYA was to keep the pitchers out of the conversation for MVP, but the writers screwed that up too. Poor choice of words was Most Valuable Player maybe, but with 8 teams and the Yankees with the best player’s, would dominate the MVP if it went by its name. BOP maybe, best offensive player, but then Ohtani would not win with just that. Ohtani as I’ve brought up before, will not be able to continue the 2-way player at such a high level for ever and a choice will have to be made by him. But the question was, is he the MVP this season? No doubt, unless Judge hits 62+ HRs, then it should be close, but the Eastern writers do not stay up to see the Halos too often.

DowningDude

But AJ Pierzynski tonight and Eric Karros the other day said it’s clearly judge. They are the foremost experts in the MVP.

They could pitch and could not hit as well as Ohtani, so WTF do they know. 😁
