a no-no is in Stephen's September


he's doing Stephen things -- 34 straight scoreless innings, longest in majors this year -- they still have Scherzer -- no Harper, no sweat, ithat Turner kid is back, he's crucial for them -- Sens a good bet to make WS -- they've been steady -- they got Stephen

1st it was LAD, then AZ
now it's the Tribe -- 18 straight? & overtaken 'stros

Their locker room has become a rubber room -- Tom Lasorda stopped by for a visit w/Dave Roberts for counsel/empathy etc, article said -- Dodgiz just the 4th team to both Win 14 of 15, & Lose 14 of 15 in same season -- last one was 1959 KC Athletics

So What
CARSON
he's completed his comeback, 2 IP & so far so good -- maybe David will regroup in time for playoffs, but we gotta make 'em 1st -- Rick, crazy -- as Graig Nettles once said, from Cy Young to sayonara -- it was same thing when Luis T was w/Indians, 20 game winner one year (1968) to losing 20 the next -- let's go Sox

It was actually Spraky Lyle not Nettles who said that. And indeed he won the Cy Young in 77 - got replaced by Goose Gossage in 78 and was sayonara from the Yankees in 79.

And I love Strasberg; but he is a heartbeat away from another injury essentially daily

Yep, that's when Nettles made that quip -- after Sparky went to Texas in 1979 -- what goes around comes around, we traded Sparky for Danny Cater
Tribe is doing what LA was earlier in season -- 20th straight all but in the bag w/Kluber going tmrw nite -- let's go Sox

I realize the Dodgers are going through a tough spell; but when you lose to my Giants that is really a warning sign

Woulda been cool to see Spark at the 50th reunion last month at Fenway -- Sparky pitched good for us in 67 altho John Wyatt (12-7, 2.90 ERA) was our main guy outta the pen

But yes, talk about opposites -- LAD, from Murderers Row comparisons, to the couch, just like that

to the Tribe -- broke ChiSox' 1906 record of 19 straight (1 tie) -- & now, w/ace Kluber on hill vs. lowly Det., likely to tie Athletics' 20 straight in 2002, then key in on the 21 straight set by Cubs' all-time 1935 squad

Giants' 1916 record of 26 (also 1 tie) is safe IMO -- they had Christy M & his legendary fadeaway pitch -- thought Pablo would prosper returning to today's Giants --

schedule is favorable, let's go Sox, secure 2nd straight div title, then do this year what we couldn't last year for Big Papi -- make WS
