    Re: What are the Forum members reading

    The Farwell book is good, as are all his books. Also really liked Thomas Pakenham's book 'The Boer War', and if you like Winston Churchill's style, his book is good, too. Joseph Lehmann did a good...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Hair-brained scheme from the get-go. I mean, which city gets the play-off home games when Tampa makes their World Series run?^&grin -- Al

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    The NL East is giving several of the TFer's headaches on a daily basis. My Nats and Brad's Mets are both underperforming compared to pre-season predictions. Rutledge is the only happy fan as his...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Fun with numbers...Not quite at the halfway mark, the 21-55 O's have used 28 different pitchers this season, including 3 different position players (C, 1B, and SS). Even though 28 seems like a high...

    Re: June 2019 Warbird Release

    Wow! What an incredibly impressive and beautiful group of releases this month. The B-29 is just awe-inspiring in that large scale. What an achievement. Love the Doolittle B-25, the ETO P-38, and the...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Fun with numbers: On the way to their 21-48 record, the O's pitching staff, in addition to compiling a 5.72 staff ERA, has allowed 138 Hr's in their 69 games. That is a LOT of dingers.{eek3} -- Al

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Been a rough 2019 season for my teams. The O's have been horrible, as expected, but have actually improved very slightly on last year's record. O's are 2 games ahead of last season's win pace. They...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Mike, it was rather interesting. Prior to that uprising, I figured this would be another typical Nats game...anemic offense with the bullpen blowing another game. This is the second time the Nats...

    Same here. I liked it. Sat there and watched the whole thing without realizing it was black and white until the very end. Like The Longest Day, it works very well as a B/W film, especially since the...

    Great photo. The soldiers are extremely young looking. Also, as a matter of interest, there appears to be at least 5 men armed with '03 Springfield while others have Garands. -- Al

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Ever since the series in NY when the Mets swept the Nats 4 straight, the Nats seem to have woken up. At least they have started to win some games, at long last. They have gone 9-2 since the NY...

    I feel your pain. The Nats pen is not GM Rizzo's finest job, either. It's Doolittle in the 9th, but no bridge to get there. A terrible situation. -- Al

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Bad bullpens seem to be the rule, rather than the exception. As the proud owner of the worst pen in MLB, the Nats are well aware of the problem. The O's almost pulled a classic EL Foldo last night....
