Pirates have called up Paul Skenes. Kid has a 0.99 ERA this year, 100mph avg fastball, 45 strikeouts in 27 innings. Scheduled to start tomorrow against the Cubs.

Keller, Jones and Skenes: their rotation sounds like a law-firm.

Dodgers-Mets doubleheader today. They randomly decided to show the USA’s goal against Wales in the 22 World Cup on the big screen. Felt that was a bit fucking unnecessary.

The respect for Shohei is wild. Every AB he gets a standing o, even from the gnarliest looking Mets fans.

Meanwhile Mookie is being overlooked somehow! He’s like the Bobby of baseball. Absolute joy to watch.

Angel Hernandez is forced into retirement.

Looks like they took inspiration from the dreaded half and half scarfs

My hypothetical half would be black, to reflect my nihilism.

His half would never be finished, because he would forever be arguing with the designers.

My niece and her family (from the Philadelphia area) are in London for the series. She/husband/daughter all big Phillies fans, as am I.

Having a wonderful time there. Haven’t been able to communicate much, but will have a full report once they return.

She knows literally nothing about footy. She asked what this “West Ham stuff” was about. I told her if she sees any one with two crossed hammers on a shirt, to give them a cross-armed greeting. Also warned if they were wearing blue, to be careful as they may be Millwall. I would like her to be safe :smile:

I am going to call you Ranger from now.

One of my wife’s favourite non-Phillies players, but only because she likes to say “Tea, Oscar?” in the worst “British” accent since Dick Van Dyke.

Dear Teo,

On behalf of my friend Ranger, please limit your critique until you can master my goal celebration

Fondly,

Dear Bryce:

You try that slide with me and you’ll be dealing with Arthur Shelby.

Regards,
