PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) wants MLB to rename the clearly offensive “bullpen” to “arm barn.” No, seriously. Not to be outdone, Mayor Bill de Blasio wants “caught stealing” to be labeled “caught borrowing” and Danny DeVito wants the position “shortstop” changed to “vertically challenged stop.”
Not sure what Pope Francis and President Biden chatted about, but odds are rapper Fetty Wap entered the conversation at some point.
No pitchers had been named for Game 4 as of Friday night. We bet the Bravos in Game 3, but have the Astros taking this series back to Houston and eventually winning it. So we will back the ’Stros, no matter who starts, for 20 units in Game 4.
Bravo! Bravo! Ian Anderson threw a no-hitter for five innings, the “arm barn” held the Astros to two harmless hits the rest of the way and Atlanta shut out Houston, 2-0. Travis d’Arnaud homered to help the Braves take a 2-1 series lead. Win has us at -1,001 felixmillans.
