My kid played travel/HS soccer with a very talented kid who was a pretty good Div 1 goalie, and who has logged time with the Irish U-17 (?) Last I heard she was on the US U-23 team. 

I remember watching this kid as a 5 year old playing rec soccer and her instincts for the game were astounding. The kid at 5 was a great athlete

Yeah, she's alright.  Takes a certain type.

https://www.mlb.com/news/rays-tampa-bay-montreal-split-season

What do you folks think of the idea of a split season between Tampa and Montreal?

The stated goals of such a move would be to keep baseball in Tampa, while improving the team's revenue.

I'm skeptical that it would improve their finances, rather than eating into them.

This seems like a "solomonic" decision to split the Rayby.

sounds like a messy solution.

Move them to:  Montreal, Charlotte, Nashville, Vegas anywhere but Tampa.

A very nice CFBW tonight.

The pitchers after Sale did a great job holding the Jays, giving the hitters time to wake up.

Ouch!

The Phillies have lost six straight games and 15 of their last 21. They scored just four runs in the first two games of a series with the last-place Marlins, who have a better record this month than the Phillies. They are just two games above .500 and have a losing record (36-37) since opening the season with a three-game sweep of Atlanta.

C'est la vie!

Almost went to the Phils game today.

it was magical.

I though when the Sox went down 5-0, given the preceding games, I figured we had them just where we wanted.

broke my WC cherry and watched extra innings in Brazil-France, that was pretty good

The Tribe called up Russell Branyan Bobby Bradley. 4 plate appearances included an extra base hit, a walk and a strikeout. I expect a lot of that. A. Lot.
