Hi just to let my followers know this will be one of my last posts on this blog. You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting much on this blog in the last few months. That is because I’m now blogging on two new blogs. The New Democrat on Blogger and The New Democrat on WordPress where you are welcome to follow me there. Where I blog there on a regular basis and hope to see you there.

One of the best MLB playoff games of all time at least in my lifetime. And probably the biggest choke in my lifetime as well at least in the MLB. The series was basically over after this game even though the Angels still had a 3-2 series lead. But got dominated back at Boston in-game six and seven by the Red Sox giving up like nineteen runs. In those two game and scoring like five runs after losing all of their momentum to the Red Sox at home.

The Tigers and Yankees were both involved in a lot of AL East divisional races in the 1980s

Good game for ABC in 1979 with the Yankees and Angels two divisional contenders. The Angels winning their first divisional championship in 1979. The Yankees coming up short against the Orioles but still two good teams playing on Friday Night Baseball.

The Angels were probably the best all around team in the AL West in 1985. But faded late in the season and came up short as the Kansas Royals won that division instead.

The 1986 Angels were a very good if not great all around team. Hitting, pitching and defense that should’ve at least gotten to the World Series. But of course lost three straight games in the ALCS after having a 3-1 lead in that series.

Good to see NBA basketball back in Baltimore

BALTIMORE — Carmelo Anthony had 22 points in the first game he’s played in his hometown to lead the New York Knicks to a 98-89 preseason win over the Washington Wizards on Thursday night.

Bradley Beal had 21 to lead Washington, which is 1-3 in the preseason.

The Knicks (2-2) outscored the Wizards 12-2 in the first seven minutes of the second on their way to a 30-16 quarter. They led 59-46 at halftime.

Washington began the third quarter with a 16-2 run to take a 62-61 lead with seven minutes to play, but New York answered with a 17-6 spurt to lead 78-68 after three.

The game drew a sellout crowd of 12,376 to Baltimore Arena, where the Bullets played for 10 years before moving to Landover, Md. in 1973. They became the Wizards in 1997.

Many in the crowd were there to see Anthony, whose ties to the…

Three hundred wins not something that we’ll see many if any pitchers achieve in the future. Because of how prominent bullpens are now in Major League Baseball and how easy managers. Look to their bullpen when there’s any sign of trouble in the middle and late innings now in. Close games with some many close games being played now with all the parity. And Don Sutton a Hall of Fame pitcher and one of the best all time achieving this back in 1986.
