So, I missed a good deal of last night's game because of the storm, and this morning half of my tomato plants were on the ground, again!
But the weather is not the subject of this thread.
Rather, Onward and Upward!

Let us hope that by the best cultivation of the physical world, beneath and around us; and the intellectual and moral world within us, we shall secure an individual, social and political prosperity and happiness, whose course shall be onward and upward, and which, while the earth endures, shall not pass away.
-----Abraham Lincoln

Miami (oh, Miami!)
It's going to be an interesting one. Cora said he was looking at a 60 pitch cap or so on Eovaldi, so I'm curious to see how the pitch plan unfolds.

I did not realize until this morning that Yaz JrJr was in the possession of the Orioles, who traded him to SF for a pitcher who hasn't worked out. They must be pounding their heads against the wall. (This may have been covered in fourteen different threads, but I missed it.)

That Eovaldi contract looks BRUTAL
yea DD had a pretty rough offseason last year. The X contract is obviously amazing, but every other deal seems to be sub-optimal. but this eovaldi deal might end up being particularly terrible. i really do think it might be time to move on from dave

Signing Eovaldi made some sense. Signing him for 4 years made zero sense given his history. If someone beats you on years, thank him and move on.

Salad tossing lefty makes three of the best righty hitters in baseball look foolish. Baseball.

The three-run-first-inning-bomb followed by a just-miss-homerun-turned-double that ends up as a LOB feels like it happens every game,

I purused the Eovaldi contract thread and there was nothing but enthusiastic thumbs up, at least for the first 50 posts.
