  • RIP Jim Mudcant Grant. 3 starts in the '65 World Series and went 2-1, and hit .250 with a HR and 3 RBI.

    I doubt many fans my age are aware that had the Twins won Game 7 of that series they would have 3 titles in which the home team won every game of the series.

      What a year and team that was, especially for a person in the prime of his boyhood fandom. Out on the prairie, we listened to or watched every game: Mudcat, Zoilo, Harm, Tony O., Ceasar, Earl B., Jim K., Bob Allison . . .

        • So, Kep, when will deGrom be back on the mound? Maybe we should have a little wager on who wins the Mets/Cubs series this week, with the loser buying a beer (or cappuccino--or just bragging rights) at the Cornell/UND game in GF, which I'll try to make.

            He's supposed to make his next start.

            If I were betting on this series I would say split. Tonight's game is the Cubs' to win -- Peterson has been very bad lately -- the deGrom and Stro starts should have us favored, the Walker start... we'll see.

            Little by little we are getting guys back. McNeil may be back this series. Lindor is really hot now which totally changes the dynamics of the lineup -- when the Cubs destroyed us at Wrigley he was hitting about .150, since then he's hitting about .350.

            This is how I do bets: loser buys odd-numbered drinks, winner buys even-numbered drinks.

                BTW, according to people in the city right now it's about 50/50 that tonight will be a rain out.

                  Sounds like Cubs fans want tonight's game to go forward. Arrieta is on the mound, though, and he ain't what he once was.

                    We are playing a stretch of 33 games in 30 days, including 5 games in a span of 3 days next week. We would just assume as many of those games as possible are 7 innings.

                        Why have the Mets been so good at home this year?

                        • D'backs suffered their 20th straight road loss last night to start a 4 games series in SF.
                          The longest road losing streak in MLB history belongs to the 1963 New York Mets, who lost 22 straight games away from home from June 16 to July 28 and the 1943 Athletics, who dropped 22 straight from July 11 to August 28.
                          The 1969 Athletics lost 20 in a row on the road from June 27 to August 8.
                          A bad cause requires many words.

                              SSS. There's no reason why we would be any better at home.

                                Winning the Peterson game has me feeling better about this series. Maybe we can sneak 3. That was the first time we have beaten the Cubs at home since 2017.
