The Candidates...

Since it doesn't look like I'm road-tripping to Iowa City (see earlier post--Iowa Firefighters canceled the prez forum for Tuesday because of the upcoming activity in the U.S. Senate) I have some time to catch up on some baseball. Tony LaRussa just pulled the Cards' new starter, Mike Maroth, in the 8th. Not sure why. Maroth was great in his Cards debut. Sometimes, I think Tony just wants some exercise walking to the mound. Oh, well.

I don't see how this will be their year anyway. Maybe that's why I think I just did something I've never done: I just filled out my ballot for the All-Star Game and it didn't include any Cardinals' starters. What's happened to me? I used to vote with my heart, not my head. Damn, old age...

It didn't have any "Card's" but you did put a couple of good old Twins Players! The Minnesota Twins Rock! Good choices too.....hopefully that stands true!

Unless my Cards can make a second half surge, I may direct my cheers up north on I-35. I'm also a big fan of the Twins.
