Happy # 61 to Jack Morris

leave a comment »



We say happy # 61 to one of the very best right handed pitchers of the last 40 years.

Morris came up with Detroit in 1977.   He won 17 in 1979 and his career really took off after that.

Overall, he was a workhorse:  254 wins, 3.90 ERA and 179 Complete Games.   

He pitched 2 complete games in the 1984 World Series when Detroit beat San Diego.

We remember him for pitching a classic 1-0 10-inning shutout for Minnesota in game 7 of the 1991 World Series.   

He came back and helped  Toronto win it it all in 1992.    

A great pitcher, specially in the post-season:  7-4 and 5 complete games.   

A workhorse of a pitcher!  One of my favorites!

“Sillas y golpes” when the Democrats gather in Nevada

leave a comment »


(My new Babalu post)

We all got caught up in the Texas-Toronto baseball fight, a.k.a. “the Odor in Bautista’s face punch”!  

However, that was not the only fight in the news.

How divided is the Democrat Party?   It got very nasty in Nevada between the Sanders and Clinton troops, according to news reports:

Supporters of Bernie Sanders lost their cool at the Nevada Democratic convention Saturday night after the Hillary Clinton campaign successfully challenged the credentials of 60 Sanders delegates–mostly for not being official Democrats.
Videos quickly emerged online showing Sanders supporters clashing with Clinton supporters and shouting down Clinton surrogate Senator Barbara Boxer of California. According to Nevada political reporter Jon Ralston, security ended the convention when Bernie’s supporters ramped up the action.

Frankly, the Sanders people are just starting to get angry.   Wait until they get to the convention and find out that the party nomination process is one gigantic fix to nominate Hillary Clinton.

Some will throw punches but most won’t vote for Clinton. That will be the biggest punch in the face of all!

P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk) and follow me on Twitter.

Mr. Trump, release your tax returns

leave a comment »

Didn’t someone tell Mr. Trump that his tax returns would be an issue in the campaign? I can’t believe that he didn’t see this one coming.  

He will need to do better than saying that it’s none of our business. It was none of my business before. We should see them now………………click to read:
