Well.....

I did answer

Not sure what your problem is

Last time I was truly active as a bettor was NFL season - and Steelers killed me.  Not taking that plunge this year but I do keep track of the numbers

Yeah, and Trump never settles a lawsuit, either.

Just give the lying a rest, Kid, would you?

I must say though - Mets pitching looks so good that 35-1 to win the NL is looking tasty

Maybe some years shit happens and scapegoating the manager just results in watching him win pennants elsewhere.

Little League World Series once again has a black eye

The New England rep, from Rhode Island has been accused of stealing signs throughout the event.

Gentlemen - really?

Call of the week. The Kruker says it all, as soon as he sees it.

The Sox are making it look as if they have life in them.

It's a great illusion.

I watch and go to games when they are solidly in last place, too. It is not about expectation of winning that keeps me going and watching, but about enjoying the games and cheering for my team even when they suck.

This year, they don't suck. They win more than they lose (though it is close at home) and they lose in entertaining ways, sometimes, as well as winning entertainingly.

But I am a baseball fan, not just a Sox fan, so I watch other teams' games, too. Even when they, too, have no chance of post season!

I didn't see it, but I assure you that I did not miss it!

And thank you for illustrating my point.

So, at the risk of repeating myself, how has your (non-gambling) betting season been going with MLB?

You all wanted me to stop - so I did.

Do you see any posts after that early season stretch?

Like I said - Mets at 35-1 is tempting

Nice to see the good news on Sale
