    @jumpkutz Your pitchers/catchers report countdown…came and went.

    We know the Commissioner of any sport works FOR the owners. However, the great Commissioners are able to walk the tightrope, build consensus on both sides, convince ownership to compromise, and above all ACT FOR the GOOD of the GAME.. Rob Manfred (not going to lie, unless I read an article, I can never remember the buffoon’s name) has never done any of those, and simply is a spineless piece of &$@*that collects obscene paychecks (Manfred’s salary is $11 million, think about that for a second) and is Hellbent to drive the bus over the cliff all the while thinking he’s doing a good job for his bosses. I could rant on about this idiot and the vast majority of scumbags that own teams, but we’ll likely have plenty more time for that.

    @jumpkutz The kid outta U of Louisville Reid Detmers w/the No-No last night (final 3 outs above). He’s only 22, and is just beginning to learn how to pitch at the Big League level.

    Low and behold, the Halos finally have a pitching staff/defense worthy of the greatness of Mike Trout (2 HRs last night). Shohei Ohtani is doing things only he can do. It’s early, but it’s nice to feel positive for a change instead of dread.

    Yeah. Surprising. He was very good in college, but I never figured he had the kind of stuff to throw a no-no. Darn near threw a perfect game. If memory serves, I thought he was a reliever at U of L. Guess not. All he's gotta do is stay healthy and keep throwing the ball like that.
