ehh,
A vacation is often best when there's some change involved. For example, as a denizen of So.FL, I'm generally excited to find a city with a bookstore, a fine-arts museum, public transportation that isn't a bus, and more than two types of weather. And those things that go up and down. . .hills! That's what they're called. Those things are amazing.
For sure! It's just a change of environment for people! Something different. I just get to come home to a pretty cool spot.

Don’t forget the sheer joy of air travel. Airports! Delays! Crowds! No legroom!

I think it's time with Cora. I like the guy but it certainly feels like it's over for you when you drop 3/4 to this trash heap

There are TWO types? Or you mean hot or hurricane?

also oak trees are cool.

Glad Hamilton's liner bounced over that wall for a homer. If it were a double he wouldn't have scored.

Ultimately the manager will pay the price for a team’s suckitude but this isn’t all on Cora. The spate of injuries and the piss poor roster he was given aren’t his fault. The failure to teach defensIve fundamentals is on him. Maybe a new manager would help a bit, but this is a poorly constructed team destined for a sub-.500 finish and even having Connie Mack in the dugout couldn’t change this.

2023 called and they want your identical post about the pitching staff back.

Serious question, why pull Smith for Cooper against a righty? Cooper has a .511 OPS against righties. Smith isn't much better but he's been a lot better lately. Cora's pinch hitting choices baffle me sometimes.

There's hot and humid, and hotter and humider. Hurricanes are the second type of weather.
Have you been to New England lately? We have the best weather in the world and lots and lots of hills. I look out at them from my house, which is why I have lost interest in going very far away.
Meanwhile, in Chicago, I came back from the garden to find a tied game with Bernardino doing his thing. I like that guy, but I didn't see how the bases got loaded. If it was his fault, I'd be surprised.
