Briefly.

Trivia #1: Who holds the MLB record for having pitched in 50 different stadiums?

Trivia #2: What team played the fewest playoff games en route to the Stanley Cup championship? 

Wow! Both the Cavs and Warriors down 3-2. Both need to win two, the last one being on the road. 

Next I will either be commenting on how the Celtics blew it or, how they can beat the Rockets/Warriors. 

The Tampa Bay Devil Rays’ rookie phenom Willy Adames made his major league debut this past Tuesday night against the Red Sox and Chris Sale. Sales struck him out the first time but he homered in his second at bat. I can’t say I’ve seen a happier kid round the bases. Good for him! Of note: Sale struck him out on three pitches his next time up. 

If the Red Sox’ Rafael Devers was on their Triple-A affiliate Pawtucket Red Sox, he would be the youngest player on their active roster. If the Red Sox’ Rafael Devers was on their Double-A affiliate Portland Sea Dogs, he would be the youngest player on their active roster. He hit his 9th homerun with the big boys earlier in the week. 

Trivia #1 hint: He was inducted into the HOF in 2015. 

Too bad NFL Eastern Conference Final game 7 the other night, Tampa/Washington, was up against the Sox and the Celtics. The game was certainly 3rd on my dial. Sorry Spike/Arch. 

LeBron was waiting at the scorers’ table for a whistle so he could check into the game the other night, Game 5 at the Garden. Where was he? No, not sitting on the floor in front of the scorers’ table, out of the view of media and fans. Instead he was sitting on the scorers’ table not caring whose view he was blocking. You could see people trying to see around him. What a dink.

A New Zealand scientist is leading a team to Scotland’s Loch Ness next month where they will search for the DNA of “Nessie”, the Loch Ness monster. Hmmm. How will they know if they find it?? 

James Harden is 0 for his last 20 three-point attempts. 

Unless information, supposed to fire my imagination: “How the AL, NL Cy Young races are shaping up.” – Dude, it’s May.

Who do you like in the big race on Sunday? I’m not sure whether Jefferson Welch is running but watch out for sleeper Alex Wilson. 

You know that person that can never give you a straight answer to your question? They reply with information but do not answer the specific question that was asked. Ya, I work with one of them. 

Trivia #1 hint #2: He holds the MLB record for homeruns allowed. 

Neal Leier, an angler from Bismarck, ND, reeled in a 15-pound, 13-ounce walleye from the Missouri River to break the state’s 60-year old record. 

St. Cardinals’ reliever Jordan Hicks threw a pitch 105 MPH last week. The fastest ever recorded. 

Quote from the archives: “A James Cagney love scene is one where he lets the other guy live.” – Bob Hope 

Trivia #1 answer: Who holds the MLB record for having pitched in 50 different stadiums? Jamie Moyer
DYK: At the time of his retirement, Jamie Moyer had pitched to 8.9% of all MLB hitters ever!

Trivia #2 answer: What team played the fewest playoff games en route to the Stanley Cup championship? – The 1987-88 Edmonton Oilers went 16-2 beating the Bruins 4-0 in the Cup finals. 

“’Cause when a long-legged lovely walks by
Yeah you can see the look in her eye
Then you know it’s
Hot in the city, hot in the city tonight, tonight”
