My goodness. Now he’s just “Shohei-ing” off. Ohtani with two more homers last night in an Angels’ win over the Orioles. That’s 30 long balls. He also stole a base. That’s 12 for the season. He also scored the winning run. Seems like he does that a lot. Oh, yeah, he can and does pitch, too. He is currently out-Babeing Babe. He is Raising The Ruth. This is historic. Let’s enjoy it!
Hmmm…since MLB started sticking pitchers for sticky stuff, offense is back. I’m told it has to do with reduced “spin rate.” More evidence that baseball is voodoo.
Look, I’m all for atonement, salvation and second chances. Pretty much always. But I don’t know about this Josh Gordon thing. He’s 30. The NFL has suspended him six times, five of them for violations of the substance abuse rules. He has once again applied for reinstatement. If reinstated, he will be a free agent. He is a very talented receiver. All reports are that teammates generally like him, even though it’s clear they can’t count on him. I’m all for atonement, salvation and second chances. But I’m not sure anyone deserves a seventh chance. Nope.
