    Just keep in mind that the Rockies are 5-11 so far this season.

    They could be worse, though: The A’s are 3-13. That’s .188 — well below the Mendoza Line.

    All the world’s a stage, but obviously the play is unrehearsed and everybody is ad-libbing his lines. Maybe that’s why it’s hard to tell if we’re living in a tragedy or a farce.

    RAISE THE JOLLY ROGER!!!!

    I don’t care if I’m dreaming or not. 7 straight wins, 6 of which are quality starts (6 or more innings) by the starting pitchers. 2 consecutive series sweeps. Percentage points out of 1st place in the division. And with one of their best pitchers out for Tommy Johns surgery, their breakout rookie shortstop out 4 moths with a broken ankle, and one of their best hitters going on the bereavement list prior to today’s game.

    I don't believe it. I had to root for the Red Sux this afternoon. A born and bred Yankee fan, to boot.

    And much to my shock and utter amazement, the RS came back from a 4-5 deficit to take an 8-5 lead in the top of the 8th. And as I had the iPad to The Boss to show her, she yells out "TWELVE RUNS?" Yeah. What do you know. The RS came through.

    I visited a place yesterday where various sports were being played, although attention in the morning was on the Womens World Cup final. In the afternoon, we had a game of Kwik Cricket. I batted and scored 50 not out and although I did not take any wickets, three or four catches were dropped off my bowling. My 50 contained 10 4's and I found gaps in the field or a fielder who was moving as fast as a statue. I did not try and hit every ball into orbit.

    Afterwards I told all the spectators sitting by the outdoor bar all about it. A guaranteed captive audience.

    One of the small boys playing, who were the best players. Asked his father who was the Umpire if I could be taken off bowling as my standard was a bit higher and he could do what he wanted to with every ball.

    I attended a four day game and there was what you find in every arena, a loudmouth knowall fan. I said if he had been at my game, I would have gone over and offered him the ball to see if you can bowl better or at all.

    The Cricket season has started again and the former player who is mouth all mighty was commentating.

    They had a guest who was a former England player and it so happened they played together in a sides, minor league team years ago. Another ex England player was on and it turned out he was the player that he replaced as a substitute fielder in a test match.

    He is the same as an entertainer who has a mine of boring anecdotes. Unfortunately they are all true.

    One week in to the MLB season, the Pirates have a record of 8 - 2, including 3 extra inning wins. One of which we got to see in PNC Park yesterday.

    With today’s win (RTJR!!) they took 2 out or 3 from the Orioles, who won the AL East last season.

    Will it last? Well, this IS The Pirates, so...

    But in the meantime, LGB!,
