Yesterday, the Detroit Tigers finished their short, miserable season in last place. The Houston Astros made it to the playoffs again, but Justin Verlander won’t pitch. He’s undergoing surgery and will miss this post season and the entire 2021 season. He’s 37 and I wonder if he’ll return to baseball when he’s healed up.
So, I’m torn between whether I’ll root for the Astros or the Chicago White Sox. Guess I’ll pull for both and see how far they get. But if the Astros and the White Sox both win the ALWS, they’ll face each other in the ALDS and I’ll really be torn.
The Detroit Lions won yesterday and Team Penske’s drivers finished in 7th, 13th and 14th place for NASCAR and 1st and 7th place for IMSA.
Pittsburgh’s players, Gregory Polanco and Phillip Evans, crashed nto each other while running to catch the ball. Evens was seriously hurt. I don’t recall ever seeing an injury like that in baseball. That was more like what you often see in football. Dozens of medics gathered around Evans for about twenty minutes. They eventually loaded him onto a gurney and put him in an ambulance.
Polanco seemed to be taking it pretty hard. I’m not sure, but he may have come out of the game after that. I didn’t see him through the rest of the game.
The Tigers are supposed to be playing the St. Louis Cardinals right now, but the entire series is postponed because Cardinal players and staff have Covid-19.. It was going to be five games against the Cardinals this week, one day was going to be a doubleheader.
I was channel surfing and I see NHL is back. I have the Blue Jackets and Maple Leafs on. It’s the playoffs. I don’t know how long NHL has been back.
I just now finished eating my late supper. Steak. I put the hot sauce my cousin Tony sent me on the steak. I don’t think people normally put hot sauce on steak, but I couldn’t find chicken wings at the grocery store yesterday.
The hot sauce is good, and it has quite a burn. I’ll probably use it on just about everything I eat.
I really love talking about baseball. It seems to come easy to me, even though I’m probably the least knowledgeable baseball fan you’d meet. Just had a good talk about baseball with a friend from elementary school, and another friend and I are always talking baseball.
