      • Sort of an interesting MLB story.

        Joe West, the umpire, successfully sued former Met Paul Lo Duca, for defamation. Won half a million dollars.

        Lo Duca had gone on a podcast and told a story in which he claimed that Billy Wagner came into a Phillies-Mets game worked by West behind the plate, when Lo Duca was catching, and Wagner said that he had bribed West with use of his '57 Chevy to give him a wider strike zone. Wagner then strikes out the side.

        The problem is, there was only one Phillies-Mets game worked by West behind the plate while Lo Duca and Wagner were teammates, and Wagner didn't pitch that game. Oops.
        That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

          Lo Duca became persona non grata in the Mets community when it became apparent he liked his girls on the youngish side.

              • Something we didn’t see last year due tot he universal DH: Apparently the extra innings rule states that if a pitcher occupies the spot behind the lead-off batter, then you can choose to put the player two spots in the lineup behind the lead-off hitter as your runner.

                Yesterday the Mets purposefully did a double switch that put a reliever in that spot so that they would have a better base runner for extras.

                Evidently the same thing happened in the Marlins/Braves game too.

                • The Twins have led or have been tied in the eighth inning of each of their ten games so far. They are 5-5. Outscored 15-0 in the ninth and tenth innings.

                    Yup, it's Manfredball. It's so stupid there are no words except... it's Manfredball.

                    I love 7-ining games, though. I'm old and 9 innings is just too much.

                      Nice pen.

                      If it's any consolation, May has sucked so far for us.

                        That’s the best part and I completely forgot to mention it! It was extra innings, but since it was a double header it was only the 8th inning.

                        • Today in Darwin.

                          Minnesota Twins shortstop Andrelton Simmons has tested positive for the coronavirus and was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday before the team's doubleheader against the Boston Red Sox.

                          Simmons has said he doesn't plan to get the COVID-19 vaccine, which was made available in a single-shot dosage to the team at Target Field last Thursday.

                            This is the kind of thing that ticks me off.

                            The entirety of my workforce is now fully vaccinated, both shots.

                            Except one. 25 year old girl. Feels invincible.

                            So I went to her the other day and asked her if she was scheduled for the shot, now that Minnesota is open to everyone. Told her everyone else is vaccinated. Her response was, "well, I feel like I'm pretty good because I've already gone through five exposures and I didn't get it, so..."

                            My response, was "it's free, I'll give you the time off to get it. If it affects you, I'll give you the time off to recover."

                            Her response was "I really don't think I'm going to get Covid, knock on wood."


                            By the way, this is the person that on at least four separate occasions during the last year would call me during the evening with a story like "a friend of my roommate got Covid from his mother, should I stay home from work?"
                            That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                            • Atlantic League making two rule changes.

                              Mound will be moved back a foot to 61' 6".

                              DH rule will be amended to only apply when the starting pitcher is in the game. Once he is removed, the pitching position enters the spot.
