A quick note to the Dodgers and Yankees this morning.

Take off those f'n pajamas and go get dressed for the game.

I sure hope we don't have more heartbreak and disaster at the Camarero Race Track when Dorian hits landfall in Puerto Rico. Hopefully horses are being moved inland to higher ground. Praying for no deaths!

[Ah, thanks, Som. Yeah, in my experience, medical practice has become very regimented and protocol driven. Our docs also have new requirements on documenting conversations with patients. I can't see when even the good ones have the time or even the permission to actually think.
The totally don't have time to think! What Medicare/insurance has done to the industry is nothing short of disgusting. I have no idea how anyone would ever want to go into the field today when it is as it now. I hope you're feeling a little bit better as the days go by.

I'm having a hard time adjusting to the fact I'm not 19 anymore and can't power through fatigue and pain quite like I used to be. Years and years ago, my father told me that one day I would call out of work because I was just too tired to get up in the morning. Tomorrow might be that day since ragweed is destroying me. He always hoped he had off during it that way we could be zombies together. An egg sandwich and intermittently falling asleep on the couch sounds nice.

Is this how global warming is going to undo most of us? Allergies? If so... ugh.

Baseball is desperate to gain attention from people who are not interested at all. It's a little embarrassing for them. I was expecting a 7th inning stretch pillow fight between the teams last weekend. They were already dressed for it.

This culture of desperation is a world where there is no such thing as a bad idea. Like the pitch clock for example. Which is baseball's equivalent of spray painting their balding head to appear more attractive.

In this spirit I guess I have an idea, too. When the batter puts the ball in play he can run in either direction, clock-wise or counter clock-wise. I call this free will. And my league is called the libertarian league. I've thought about it and I think it could work but I probably haven't thought of every possible scenario. But at least it tries to address what I believe to be the real problem with the game which is ever-shortening attention spans. I'm attempting to create some chaos out of order and making you pay attention.

Go and ask the poor minor league players currently being tortured with the new rules testing if they would prefer to play libertarian ball over their current form of new-ball andl I believe that they would unanimously choose my game.

In the middle of my first chemo treatment. When did they start it? Midnight of course. More fun then, I guess.

How ya' doin?
