Go Guards!

Written by
Well that was fun!  The Guardians regular season 92-70.    Back in April, most if not all believed with the youngest team, low budget way of doing things meant bad news for the Guardians.  Signing Jose Ramierez was huge...  This team did as Jose did and believed in themselves just as Skipper Terry Francona did!  -The pitching staff is lights out.  -The Closer has absolutey filthy stuff.  -Jose Ramierez is steady as they come, should…

Expensive Explosion

Written by
Ever wonder what a 300 million dollar explosion looks like?   Here it is...  NASA's DART Mission (Double Asteroid Redirect Test spacecraft)  flying a $300 Million Dollar Spacecraft into an asteroid.  (I realize this could come in handy at some point.  I love you NASA.)  Just couldn't we have sent up the old Pinto of space travel, the one you use for the space demo derby or something!  This was a kamikaze mission, right?  Kudos...

Fall Ball?

Written by
I have to admit with Fall Official tomorrow (9-22-22), I do not feel like it is football season.  It's not because of the implosion that happened last Sunday either.   To me it is still baseball season especially when the Guardian's Magic Number is 9...  The Browns are in a short week, and a Rivalry Week!  So the news of Clowney out already and Bitonio, Conklin and Garrett up in the air (but expected to play)…
