MLB Bullets Can't Dodge This One

The Dodgers look like they looked back in May and people are blaming the manager. Carlos Beltran is having another great series. San Jose's antitrust lawsuit against MLB was thrown out. Cal Ripken may or may not be the next manager of the Nationals. An ex-Cub's wife does really well in The Amazing Race.

I had engaged in a bunch of Red Sox schadenfreude here when I first wrote this, but then the Tigers bullpen showed up.

I had a better weekend than Don Mattingly did, and I had a car break down. Dem Bums are back.

Kim DeJesus and her partner, Nicky Getz (the wife of Chris Getz) pulled a move in the São Paulo airport and got placed first on the stand-by list on a flight to Lisbon on last night's episode of The Amazing Race. (They walked right into the executive lounge and got on the list while all the public stations were closed.) Because of that, the two of them finished in third place, one week after finishing second-to-last and barely avoiding elimination. Eliminated instead were former NFL players Chester Pitts and Ephraim Salaam, who missed two connecting flights to Lisbon. That means wives of MLB players are better competitors than NFL players. At least at The Amazing Race.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
