  1. Merry Christmas to all, .....and here is the final word on "Christmas decorations" .....
  2. No, it was the one in the middle. You know, the one that quit in the middle of the season.
  3. Trout's a new Dad, and has to contend with Covid-19 like all of us do, sometimes things transcend baseball. Plus it's a strange season, and whoever wins the World Series will forever have an asterisk after it. He will be back next year, better than ever.
  4. Teheran will go 5 innings, giving up 3 runs.. Trout will hit a home run. Adell will go 1-4 with a single. Rendon 2-3 with a double and a walk Angels win 5 to 4.
  5. ,,,,,,,,or turn them down when everyone leaves in the 6th inning of a blowout against the Angels.
  6. Thanks Chuck for all you have done for us. Happy Birthday!
  7. I don't go near Twitter either. It's just an insulting and divisive pile of crap most oof the time. Also full of a lot of lies, and misinformation.
  8. My favorite bobblehead from an Inland Empire 66ers game....
  9. Might be best to take a good look at the what the pandemic is doing to Arizona. Their cases are rising rapidly, and hospitals are getting full. At least Washington has some valuable experience with this disease. I have friends in Arizona who are really frustrated with the lack of residents taking this much too lightly. The use of masks seems pretty low.
  10. Exactly what's funny about it? Seriously asking.
  11. It's rare but it still exists. I lifted this from the Mayo Clinic description: "Diphtheria (dif-THEER-e-uh) is a serious bacterial infection that usually affects the mucous membranes of your nose and throat. Diphtheria is extremely rare in the United States and other developed countries, thanks to widespread vaccination against the disease. Diphtheria can be treated with medications. But in advanced stages, diphtheria can damage your heart, kidneys and nervous system. Even with treatment, diphtheria can be deadly, especially in children."
  12. Polio still exists outside the USA. This is from the Mayo Clinic: "Polio is a contagious viral illness that in its most severe form causes nerve injury leading to paralysis, difficulty breathing and sometimes death. In the U.S., the last case of naturally occurring polio was in 1979. Today, despite a worldwide effort to wipe out polio, poliovirus continues to affect children and adults in parts of Asia and Africa. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises taking precautions to protect yourself from polio if you're traveling anywhere there's a risk of polio.
  13. I think Eppler does get an extension for at least one year. I don't believe there will be any meaningful baseball in 2020 though. I think there is some small chance for empty stadium baseball, but it would be hard to fathom any significant number of fans who want to sit in a crowded stadium this year. And how many people, despite the health risk, are going to be able to spend the money for baseball tickets when they may be laid off or their jobs gone, their small private businesses virtually destroyed, or have mounting debts of all sorts. You could even be a recovered Covid patient with ma
  14. For those who are not familiar with it, 60 minutes ran scenes and interviewed doctors and nurses about ventilator patients tonight. Very, very sad especially just before the patient is sedated they have to remotely say goodbye to their loved ones for fear of contamination.
  15. There is no way things will be back to normal at Easter. We are headed for easily passing China for the amount of infections, and that's with China having 5 times more people than are in the US.. People are getting anxious to get outside and do things and mingle, and that's going to stretch out any recovery. The current numbers are 64,765 infected (and we still have not tested nearly enough). What's the real number, probably somewhere in the hundreds of thousands at this point. I can't see any way to play this season. If the season were to start on June 1st, and new infections were stil
