I hope you are as accurate as you usually are. In the fickle world of
football punditry, United seem to have become favourites this week, to
be Premiership champions. Thank god there are some constants left in the
universe, such as the accuracy of your predictions.

Awesome Giants <Giants@sf.giants>: Aug 19 09:56AM

The Giants are 10-7 in August, their 1st winning month so far. Of
course, there's still 12 more games to go this month, so who knows.
 
Parker came off the DL on Aug 3rd and definitely has been the catalyst.
The Giants are 9-4 this month when Parker started. They're 1-3 when he
didn't start.
 
Parker this August: .315/.339/.519/.858 12 RBI, 8 doubles in just
over half a month. More than half of his 17 hits are extra base hits
(8 doubles 1 HR).
 
Of course he won't keep this up. Otherwise we've got ourselves a real
LF. But he's fun to watch so far in a dismal season. Enjoy it while
it lasts.
 
Pence's been quietly having a killer month too, batting .351 with 14
RBI and 4 HR. He can easily have a 20 RBI month. Batting in front of
Parker certainly didn't hurt.
 
Posey meanwhile is having by far his worst month of the season, batting
only .255. Having Pablo bat behind him certainly isn't working.
 
I know, wayne likes to say that Pablo is the catalyst since he came
back roughly the same time as Parker, but I'll let you be the judge:
 
Parker .471 RISP BA, 12 RBI and 8 doubles in August
Pablo .077 RISP BA, 2 RBI in August
Awesome Giants <Giants@sf.giants>: Aug 19 09:51AM

On this day in Giants history...
 
Pablo got his first hit with someone in scoring position!!! A mighty
single! Only took like half a month!!!
 
At this rate he might get 3 RISP hits by the end of the season!
 
It's also his first game with more than 1 hit.
 
He even got his 2nd walk this month! Think about this. He managed to
NOT swing at *4* balls out of the strike zone! Almost feels like this
is as rare as a solar eclipse. LOL.
 
It only took playing the worst team in baseball to accomplish all this.
:-D
 
His OPS+ as a Giant is 42 (100 = league average)
 
On defense, his Range Factor is 1.76 (league average = 2.52)
 
His WAR is -0.3
 
His RISP BA is .077

3 in the first, 1 in the second and 2 more in the 3rd. The Giants
have given Moore 6 runs worth of support to work with.
 
Giants 6 Phillies 0
 
A shutout?

Home runs by Pence and Crawford, doubles for Posey, Pence and Parker.
It's good playing a patsy like the Phillies. Moore thru 7 innings, 1
hit, 4 K's and no runs allowed.
 
Giants 6 Phillies 0

Uncharacteristically of the Giants, they score 3 more runs in the
bottom of the 8th after Gearrin allows 2 in the top of the inning.
Tomlsinon singles, Moncrief gets on via fielder's choice and Span
singles.
 
Giants 10 Phillies 2
 
Pray that the 10 runs on Friday don't mean the Giants will take the
day off at the plate on Saturday.
John Walsh <jwalsh589@gmail.com>: Aug 18 06:50PM -1000

Moore finally runs out of steam and puts runners on in the 8th.
Gearrin comes in and gives up 2 hits and 2 runs, the runs going on
Moore's earned runs. Moore's era 5.54, Gearrin's stays around 2.04.

Can't keep a good man down. Bortles is gaining league-wide scorn as a
flop. Enter Super Henne... the Clark Kent of the NFL.

The Patriots top draft pick suffers a season ending ACL injury on kick coverage play.
 
Shit happens.

Another seemingly ongoing problem with Miami.

It's a brand new field, isn't it?
 
To me it looks like they're playing on algae... they slip and slide every time they try to cut. I think they must have hired a greens keeper to care for their field.

Didn't seem to bother the Ravens players as much as the Dolphins.
I wonder if the team doctor doubles as the equipment manager.

MIAMI GARDENS—The Dolphins will redo the entire playing field at Hard
Rock Stadium with new sod in advance of their season opener and the
University of Miami's.
 
The grass did not hold up well for Thursday's preseason game against
Baltimore, with players occasionally losing their footing and much of
the field being covered in divots. There have been ongoing issues with
the turf lately, particularly with hosting El Clasico and scrimmages by
both football teams that use the building.
 
Given the shape it was in after UM's scrimmage Saturday, the Dolphins
believed their best shot at having the field up to their standards in
time for the Ravens game was to lay new sod. That plan didn't work,
obviously. The main problem was heavy rain in South Florida this week,
which hindered the sod from fully taking hold.
 
The grass will be ripped out of Hard Rock Stadium in advance of the
Coldplay concert Aug. 28–the event has been on the calendar since last
October, so the Dolphins have had ample time to plan. By clearing the
field prior to the show, which would have surely ruined it anyway, the
Dolphins are able to install new grass as early as possible. For the
concert, the stadium will use a plastic covering over the bare ground.
 
That schedule will set up four days between the concert and the
Hurricanes' Sept. 2 opener against Bethune-Cookman, then there's another
week to replenish it leading up to the Dolphins' opener Sept. 10. The
Dolphins also intend to use a different strain of grass than the one
that faltered Thursday and are fully confident the field will be
impeccable for UM's game.
 
The field at Hard Rock Stadium is usually among the best in the league,
even as the Dolphins share the venue with UM. It'll help that there are
only two weekends in which the teams play on back-to-back days this
season. The Hurricanes host Syracuse on Oct. 21, followed by
Dolphins-Jets at 1 p.m. the next day. The Hurricanes also face Virginia
Tech on Nov. 4, and the Dolphins play Oakland the next night.

Afraid I couldn't get the game, last night. WGAL in Harrisburg, PA was carrying the BAL broadcast, but I couldn't tune it in with my antenna. Digital TV - FAAAHHH!

Sounds like "The Ki-Jana Carter Story". Or "John Bosa - The Man Who Would Be Sack-Meister", etc.
