Drafted Goldschmidt on my fantasy team last night, so he's destined to have a career worst year!

So one of two things will happen.

1) He will blow his knee out tomorrow, and be done for the year.
or
2) I'll send you a STL hat.  You want Red or Blue?

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Pujols got a shot at 700?  He's at 681.  Hit one in the first homestand, and then another yesterday in Milwaukee.

He's averaged almost 18 a year over his last 5 seasons. So yeah, 700 is very doable. That would be an incredible milestone to go out on.

Being that the Braves are playing much like they did for 60%, or 239/427th of the season last year, I’ve been a little disinterested so far.  I’m watching some, and always checking on the score if I’m not watching.  But the other night against LA is another reason I’m having trouble getting semi-chub about the game.  I turn it on and the Braves are down 1-0.  Early innings, and they have a runner on 2nd with nobody out.  Austin Riley at the plate.  Strikes out on a swing that would have disabled a tank.  Next batter, same thing.  Last batter, mighty swing trying to hit the Hollywood sign.  Pop up to the infield.  Runner never even advanced.

The home run or nothing approach to the game is maddening.  There is no coaching.  There is no skill at the plate.  Doesn’t matter the situation, just swing for the fences.  Even the announcers have that same mentality.  They constantly talk about, “Well, if Ozzie can get a hold of one here….”.  They’re still using those goofy ass shifts and putting everyone on one side of the infield.  Just bunt the F’n ball to the opposite side.  You’re on.  But no.  That would mean I have to do something other than come out of my cleats with a gargantuan swing.

Maddening.

So about a month in, here are some standings:

Cards (15-10) sit 2.5 back from the Brewers.
Cubs (9-15) are 8 back from Milwaukee

And the Reds, if you aren't paying attention, are 3-22 (.120 winning percentage), and are serious contenders to break the Spiders record of futility (20-134 or about .149).  We're all rooting for you, Cincy!

Barves sitting at 12-15, and 6.5 back from Pond Scum.

Dodgers leading the West by 1/2 game on the Padres.

Over in the AL, The O's are tied with the Red Sox.  So that's great for Baltimore, but not so much for the BoSox.
