How does a pitcher of Jon Lester's caliber get to this point in his career and not be able to hold a runner?

Indians playing loose and doing just enough  on offense -- different hero every night.

In 1995, the Braves proved that great pitching beats great hitting. Like the way this one feels.

I was reacting to the parts of the post concerning monopoly and what the government should or should not do. One presidential candidate has already weighed in on the question. Thus, whether the acquisition should be allowed or not, as monopoly laws may be implicated, is a political question and is ultimately decided by a governmental agency. I just thought this was headed out of bounds.

Sparty, Bruce was signed to Columbia Records as a folk singer/songwriter by legend John Hammond. He submitted his first recording, "Greetings from Asbury Park" to the company, and they handed it back saying "There are no hits here." Bruce went home and wrote "Blinded by the Light" and "Spirits in the Night" and added them to the record.

From my first Mellenkamp album. Underrated song, IMO.

Feel better, LY.

Miles is 25 years gone. I miss those cool sounds. I'm always stunned to think that Kind of Blue was recorded in 1959.

They lead the nation in sacks, but are 47th in run defense; 18th in pass defense; and 22nd overall. BC is still a top 10 defense overall since he left.

They play Wisconsin this week, which should be a good test.

No complaints for the young Bucks.

Stay healthy, stay hungry, stay humble, and keep working. It'll all be yours, Buckeyes!
