    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...

    Re: KING & COUNTRY Dispatches -- June 2019

    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

    Have seen TLD dozens of times but have never seen Overlord. Will be watching it for sure, along with TLD, again. Just watched Dunkirk and am watching Battle of Britain as I type this. Been a good day...

    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...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    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....

    Mike, I've seen it. Found it very interesting and odd, at the same time. Didn't find any characters worth sympathizing with, except maybe the unfortunate driver the Captain first picked up, and he...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    I enjoyed seeing the Giants come to B-more this weekend. Don't get to see that often. Neat to see the two black and orange teams go at it. None of my teams are doing well, but I still watch them,...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Understood. It's all about what the analytics say these days. Girardi and Showalter are dinosaurs in today's game but they are the kind of dinosaurs I wouldn't mind seeing as a manager. The Nats last...

    Jason, it's a puzzle. The clamor for Martinez's head grows by the day and GM Rizzo sort of gave him the 'kiss of death' today in a news conference saying that they had no intention of changing...

    True enough, except for this year's Nats, it would seem. They have not won more than 2 games in a row all year, and that only 4 times. There is no consistency, unless we're talking how bad the...

    And the beat goes on as once again the Nats choke an 8th inning lead. I've had it for a while. When the Nats can Martinez and fire the bullpen, I might check in to see the results but enough is...
