Briefly. 

Trivia #1: Barry Bonds had his numbered retired by the Giants the other night. Did you catch it? No, neither did I. What number was it?

Trivia #2: Which quarterback-wide receiver duo was ranked first by the NFL during the 2017-2018 season? – Ben Roethlisberger- Antonio Brown, Matt Ryan- Julio Jones, Russell Wilson- Doug Baldwin, Tom Brady- Rob Gronkowski, Drew Brees- Michael Thomas? 

There were more than 600 applicants seeking to replace Rene Rancourt for the national anthem at Bruins’ games. They’ve narrowed it down to 52 finalists. 

Mookie wears one of those new-fangled mitts when he runs the bases. He wears it on his left hand which makes sense when he slides into second base, left hand first. What doesn’t make sense is that he dives back to first, on a throw, with his right hand first. Why not wear two mitts?? 

The headline for yesterday’s Red Sox farm system report read like this: Michael Chavis extends hit streak to 3 games. Really, that’s it? 

‘Cast’ is an interesting word. You can cast a spell, cast a fishing rod, be a part of the cast of a movie, you can cast something off to the side, have a cast on your broken arm or, you can cast a shadow.  Talk about diversity! 

Nice to be watching the Pats again. 

Not to be outdone by the Tim Tebow update, Clay Bucholtz is 6-2 with a 2.47 ERA and 1.07 WHIP for the D-Backs. You might recall that I was always a fan. 

I’m a fan of Drew Pomeranz too. But that folks, is quickly dying. 

Some say; “summer’s almost over.” Others say; “summer’s still here!” Which are you? 

R.I.P. Aretha Franklin (76) – The Queen of Soul

R.I.P. Vinnie Francescone (76). Vinnie was a good guy, period. 

Trivia #1 answer (kinda): Barry Bonds had his numbered retired by the Giants the other night. Did you catch it? No, neither did I. What number was it? Who cares?

Trivia #2: Which quarterback-wide receiver duo was ranked first by the NFL during the 2017-2018 season? – Ben Roethlisberger- Antonio Brown, Matt Ryan- Julio Jones, Russell Wilson- Doug Baldwin, Tom Brady- Rob Gronkowski, Drew Brees- Michael Thomas? – It was Big Ben – Antonio Brown. 

This was my tune for the day until I saw that Aretha passed away. So you get two today: 

“Takin’ my time
Choosin’ my line
Tryin’ to decide what to do
Looks like my stop
Don’t wanna get off
Got myself hung up on you”
 

Here’s to Aretha! 

“I’m about to give you all my money
and all I’m askin’ in return, honey
Is to give me my propers
When you get home (just a, just a, just a)

Yeah baby (just a, just a, just a)

When you get home (just a little bit)

Yeah (just a little bit)”
