Political news is getting boring. Some of my readers are baseball fans, so I thought I'd post some baseball news and commentary:
Rockies Going To World Series
They swept the D'backs. They have won 21 of the last 22 games, they have played. They are the team to beat right now.
Before the playoffs were underway, the talk was Arizona vs. Boston. Boston is now down 2-1 to the Cleveland Indians, but not out of it yet.
I don't think it matters much who wins that series though, the Rockies are the team to beat right now. They are a juggernaut and look like they will mow down either team. They have won on the road and at home, they don't seem to show any signs of faltering right now.
My congrats to the Rockies organization and their fans.
Dusty Baker To Manage Reds
I was in the eastern part of the state yesterday and the only decent station to listen to was the Big One 700 WLW. As you can imagine they were all over this story. There are so many possibilities here.
Good players love Dusty and want to play for him. He is the winningest manager ever hired by the Reds in their long history. Reportedly, there have been some free agents that have called him and offered to come and play there.
Add to that, management appears to be ready to open up the purse a bit and get some players that will cost a bit more. What they need is pitching.
