Just wanted to let everyone know I still feel healthy, just working a lot. Hozer and I miss doing play by play of Cubs games on here and commenting on the games. Everything will be back to normal soon

I just got an anonymous call on my phone which I usually don't answer when I don't see a number I recognize. I answered it and the person said SOX and hung up.  I have no clue who it was  

It is Jackie Robinson Day today. It is the 70th Anniversary of when Jackie Robinson integrated baseball. A month or so later, Larry Doby integrated the AL, playing for the Cleveland Indians.

Good day Cubs win and it has temporarily stopped raining

 

It is raining in Atlanta.

 

During the rain delay, the Mets station aired an interview with Vin Scully. What a brilliant man! He was 89 at the time of the interview and he looked and sounded so sharp. He could remember so much as if it were yesterday. He started his career at age 22 and worked for 67 years. Life well lived. And still living. 

 

PT will like this. Scully went on and on about the person he called "my favorite player". He was talking about former Dodgers player and Mets Manager Gil Hodges. He described Hodges as "a special human being".

Yeah I cant wait for this series. It's early in the season but they are playing like THE YANKEES. Should be fun, new Champion vs the best Franchise. I will have weird feelings watching Chapman pitch against us, loved the guy as he was crucial in the WS to the Cubs winning.

Piscotty pulled hamstring may be a good thing right now , Martinez will get a good shot batting over 400

 

 

The Mets announcers reported that Fowler hurt himself. What happened?

Yes I was, do I need to use a freakin sarcasm sign everytime I speak (in my Jack Nicholson voice) :sarcasm:, This rain is over whelming here in the Indianapolis area. Just stay safe and indoors.

Just checking 

 ThevTri-State(SW Indiana, SE Illinois and NW Kentucky) has had about 10 inches since last Thursday

No I didn't

I wrote it up top. I am quoting part of what I wrote. It is about an interview with the great Vin Scully.

He talked a lot about Hodges, who he called Gilly. He talked about his time fighting for our country and his being a religious and good man. He said a lot.  Think about it. In 67 years as a broadcaster, Scully has met thousands of players. His favorite was Gil Hodges.

Our 10 Acres are on the tallest Hill in Gibson County so flooding in a rarity but our lake and frog pond are near the brim and/or ready to overflow

From what I read he was a great person but for the longest time all I knew of him was that he was the namesake of the Princeton Community Baseball field and the face on a mural in Petersburg

Interesting. It was not made known that he was a Dodgers player and the manager of the 100-win Amazin Mets of 1969? His number is one of the few retired by the Mets. 

 

In two years, it will be the 50th anniversary of that championship. I wonder if his wife is still alive. She used to come to many of the Mets events in the past. 

 

Gil Hodges should have been an icon in your town.

The other discrepancy is because he moved from Princeton to Petersburg in elementary school and graduated from Petersburg High School but played for the Princeton American Legion Baseball team

The Mets game at Atlanta was postponed last night (rain) after playing into the 4th inning.  Returning to NY, they probably will not play tonight or tomorrow. We are expecting heavy rain and thunderstorms.

 

I may watch some Cubs-Yankees. :thinking:  Which team shall I root for? 

 

Talk to all of you this weekend. Enjoy and stay safe. :)

What do you mean which team will you root for :sarcasm:. It may get rained out?? It's still raining hard in Indianapolis, has been for around 30 hours.

I think Cubs win 1 if I had to predict it. It will be tough to take against them in NY the way they are playing.

 

I thought they were playing in Chicago. If they are in NY, the games today and tomorrow will be cancelled. I am looking out the window now and there are torrential downpours. A tree fell on a car outside my office about an hour ago. It is bad out there but maybe not as bad as how it was in Indy.
