Also, no long lines at the restrooms and concession stands – and think how easy it will be to find your car in the parking lot when the game is over.

I'll bet that 3/4's of the food stands are closed, and maybe half of the bathrooms.
They probably close half of the entry gates too,

We're in the top of the 6th of the Phillies 4th game and so far I've done a combo of watch and listen to every one. I may have missed a few innings here and there but so far I'm really getting my monies worth out of the $150 MLB.TV thing.

Also now I know somewhat how it feels to date me when I ramble on about football all the time. I know the basics of baseball and that's about it. There's a bunch of intricacies that I'll be figuring out as the season go on I'm sure.

Phillies lost the first of the series to the Reds on a Grand slam in the top of the 10th. 1-4, Argh.

Only 157 games to go. This season is practically over. hah.

They lasted 10 innings to lose. They Jays gave up 3 in the bottom of the 1st and never got a hit eventually losing 10-0l. They have all the earmarks of a .500 team this year.

Last night's Blue Jays loss was the first no-hitter of 2024. Last year there were six no-hitters – and three of them were against the Blue Jays!

I didn’t want to say anything and jinx it, but not too shabby!
They weren’t blow-outs by any means, so I’m not going to get too cocky.

"MIA" refers to:

a) The Miami Marlins
b) Missing In Action
c) both of the above

The Marlins are now 0-8. The 1988 Baltimore Orioles hold the record for the longest losing streak at the start of a season: 21 games.

Jays set records for:
-- first time team has been no-hit & one-hit in the first 7 games of a season
-- lowest batting average in a 3 game series
-- fewest hits in a 3 game series

Next series in NY vs the Yankees.

Long year.

The Yankees lost their first 1967 home game by that same score, 3-0, against the Red Sox and would finish the season in 9th place (out of ten teams) with a record of 72-90, twenty games behind the first-place Red Sox. In the so-called "World Series," the Cardinals beat the Red Sox in seven games.

In the American League East, the Yankees and Red Sox are tied for first place, each with a record of 6-2. The Blue Jays are in fourth place with a record of 4-4 – or, because of that tie, are they technically in third place? I'm not sure.

Othani claimed he talked to the woman who caught his first Dodgers home run and convinced her to give it up. What actually happened is some Dodger goons separated the woman from her husband and brow beat her into giving up the home run ball for some signed caps and baseballs. She never spoke to Othani. Otani is a liar. If he can lie about something as inconsequential as this he certainly is capable of lying about gambling. He will be a blyte on baseball for 10 years or as long as MLB keeps this covered up. I think I have found somebody I despise more than Tom Brady.
