Something To Watch Between Ballgames And Legal Maneuvers

Bored by the Trump and Trump related legal happenings? Frustrated at scoreboard watching in the final weeks of the baseball season? Well, I have a diversion you for the rest of this month.

Get Somebody Up

Tomorrow is opening day for my Tampa Bay Rays so I’m in full baseball mode even when I’m writing about politics. The Republicans’ current situation reminds me of a team that knows it’s starter can’t finish the game but refuses to get a viable reliever up in the bullpen.
