No more baseball for this season. Hopefully, there will be a somewhat regular season next year. We shall see.

The Chicago White Sox have hired Tony La Russa as their new manager. La Russa hasn't managed since winning the 2011 World Series.

An interesting selection.

I heard this, La Russa has to be older than Biden isn’t he?

Well another sports team is looking to change its nick name......Cleveland is dropping Chief Wahoo.....about time really....and their name. Personally I don’t see a problem with the Indians...if that goes so should The Chiefs, Seminoles, Utes, Eskimos, Blackhawks and probably many others.

My choice would be a toss back in history and call them the Cleveland Spiders....the name Cleveland baseball had in the late 1880 when they were members of the American Association. They could however take their cue from the old National League custom of just calling the Team by its city name.....which is where the Phillies came from...although the owners wanted to call them the Blue Jays at one time.

I would support the name of the Cleveland Spiders.

Hmmm The Cleveland Cleavers? Or how about the Cleavelnad Cleavage? That last one would probably shock the PC types out of their jock straps, but what titillating promotional possibilities.:D

With lots of support they might just slip under the wire, or they could push up and free themselves from bondage.

"MLB gives the ***** Leagues 'major league' status, a move it says is aimed at 'correcting a longtime oversight in the game's history'
The seven ***** Leagues, which operated from 1920 to 1948 while the sport was segregated, had previously been excluded from the sport's official records even though some of their players had an indelible impact on the game and the leagues were operational for much longer than other associations granted "major league" status." The Washington Post

About time! The ***** Leagues were influential in creating the modern game. MLB at the times played more station to station...it wasn’t until they integrated that the active on base game was widely adopted.....which other than the skill of its players, was the hallmark of the ***** Leagues.

Eve stole first, Adam stole second. Cain struck out Abel. The Giants and the Angels were rained out.
