I Promise I Won’t Post Baby Photos Everyday...

  I promise I won't (though I that is all I want to do) post baby photos every day. Chelsea and her little family stayed with us for a few days. I am amazed I didn't gobble Gabriel up in one bite. He is a healing balm, an adorable joy, a cautious little boyboy and almost as big as me. My brother Marty asked that I send a photo of Gabriel and me, which was sweet. He said he wanted to see us together. Chelsea took this photo.     It takes every muscle in my body to lift this chunk a lunk. What...

Alexander: Are you saying there’s a chance for the Dodgers and Angels? …

This Space called it, two springs ago. And, well, sometimes you’re on target and sometimes you throw it to the backstop. From the editions of March 29, 2018: “It is the beauty of spring training. When it ends, everyone is still undefeated.  “So, in that spirit of optimism, why not indulge that wild dream that Southern California baseball fans have harbored for the better part of six decades? The Dodgers and Angels, playing in October. Playing each other in October. SoCal as the epicenter of the ...

MLB notebook: Altuve, Bregman drilled in Astros' win

Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman each were hit by pitches with the bases loaded during back-to-back at-bats in the second inning, and the Houston Astros cruised to a 15-6 win over the host Kansas City Royals on Tuesday. Two innings later, Altuve exited the game because of a left leg contusion after a collision at home plate.
