Well I’d suggest that if your heart isn’t healthy enough to withstand the constant changing dimensions of the ever changing architecture of our society, then bail and bail early.

Me... I’m good to go......... xxxx

Alan, I am now going in to floor pacing mode.  [eek] My extreme level of concentration now hopefully will help our boys in the pen close this one out !  [scared]

By “architecture of our society” clearly you mean baseball😊. I can take it, it’s just painful.

@Rob Z - I think I have put on 5,000 steps since the 6th. My dogs, don’t know what to think.

@Rob Z - Congratulations to you and all of the Nats fans here! They played great baseball and deserved to win. They beat us the same way that we beat the Dodgers in 17’, with great pitching, power hitting and relentless opportunistic and timely hitting. BTW, Anthony Rendon is from Houston, he went to Lamar HS, which is about ten minutes from Minute Maid Park and he was also a star at Rice which is also minutes from the ballpark. Good for him and the Nats!

Hey Alan.  Thanks  [smile], oh my, that was grueling to watch.  After that low point earlier in the season, I was just thrilled to make the WC game!

Some seasons, I manage to watch or listen (radio) to every game in the season.  So, after a couple thousand games this is pretty sweet.  [smile]

Speaking of Rendon, I am afraid the Nats won't be able to entice him to stay and this is the last we've seen of him in a Nats uniform.

Back to reality tomorrow !  [cool]

Amazing series - not just for the fans of both teams, but to anyone who loves baseball. Both teams deserved to be there and put on an amazing series.

Oh yeah, I’m still here. Hard to get excited about the season this year after this cheating scandal. It’s going to be a rough, hard to watch year this year.

Alan,  you're right, it has taken a bit of the shine off the diamond (sorry, bad pun  [embarassed] ).  I hope none of the Nats will be  implicated in any of this stuff.

Peter, as you might guess, I got an earful from my son about the Mets dealio.  [scared] [big grin]

Terrible choice as manager. The Mets ownership doesn't need another "yes" man. I understand Beltran had to go, but there WERE options out there...

Alan, I just read that the Astros hired Dusty Baker and he's already moaning and groaning about his players getting beaned.  LOL the Drama continues ! [scared] [blink] [wink]

As I said it’s going to be a tough year. Not that we don’t deserve it but we are going to get abused regularly in every park we visit. I doubt that getting plunked a few times is going to be the worst of it. It’s going to be really ugly for a while. Dusty better get some cheese with his whine, he’s going to need it.

Hey Alan and Peter

Things aren't looking so good, are they?  I wonder if the players and owners can figure out a way to get some baseball on the field.  I can do without any of the major sports and even college sports, but no MLB is gonna be a real existential crisis for me !  [scared] [eek] [blink] [crying]

And then, I believe it is next season that the CBA expires so it looks like they now have two monster negotiations in a row to deal with. They better get on the stick (pun intended).

Hey Alan

You still watching the Astros?  [big grin].  My wife and son are headed to Nats park how to see Mets vs Nats, wearing their Mets gear and sure to get in to a verbal fracas  [scared].

Hey Peter, how are you doing?

Hey Peter,

Doing OK now that tax season is over  [eek] .  I watched all the VPI basketball games and most of their baseball games.  FYI it was something like $5/month to be able to watch on computer or Ipad, in case you don't already have that set up.

Robby has a long list of grievances about the way things are going for the Mets. Like a true Mets fan, he can never really be happy because disaster is possibly waiting right around the corner LOL.

Hi Alan

They just sent a pic from the game. The giveaway was a Davey Martinez bobblehead, holding the WS trophy  [big grin]. Glad to hear you're getting the games in the way it used to be. I normally don't check the AL standing but I see your boys are leading the pack. Let's hope we meet again in the post season.  [smile]

Lol if he’s a true Mets fan he should know to enjoy it until the inevitable late August/September collapse comes.
