Most of baseball’s unwritten rules are stupid and strange

Perspective Interpretation of the news based on evidence, including data, as well as anticipating how events might unfold based on past events

In 1951, Bobby Thomson hit the ‘Shot Heard ‘Round The World’ in the ninth inning as the New York Giants beat the Brooklyn Dodgers for the National League pennant.

In 2018, Chance Sisco hit the ‘Bunt Heard ‘Round The World Wide Web’ in the ninth inning as the Baltimore Orioles trailed the Minnesota Twins, 7-0, in the opening week of the American League season.

The Twins’ Jose Berrios was closing in on a one-hit shutout with one out in the ninth when Sisco decided to bunt, largely because Minnesota was in a shift that left the third base side of the field vacant.

Heck, I was in my barbershop twice in the last seven days ‘ that’s right, my hair grows so fast, I get it cut two times a week ‘ and every chair was abuzz about the propriety or impropriety of Sisco’s bunt.

‘The FBI closed the case on Hillary, which was a rigged investigation. They exonerated her even before they ever interviewed her, they never even put her under oath…..’ and much more. So true Jesse! @WattersWorld
The Washington Post is far more fiction than fact. Story after story is made up garbage – more like a poorly written novel than good reporting. Always quoting sources (not names), many of which don’t exist. Story on John Kelly isn’t true, just another hit job!
President Xi and I will always be friends, no matter what happens with our dispute on trade. China will take down its Trade Barriers because it is the right thing to do. Taxes will become Reciprocal & a deal will be made on Intellectual Property. Great future for both countries!
If President Obama had crossed his stated Red Line In The Sand, the Syrian disaster would have ended long ago! Animal Assad would have been history!
Congratulations to Patrick Reed on his great and courageous MASTERS win! When Patrick had his amazing win at Doral 5 years ago, people saw his great talent, and a bright future ahead. Now he is the Masters Champion!
Spread this so the world sees what an asshat the London mayor is. Quite possibly the stupidest tweet ever, even for huge city.

President Trump Gives Remarks on Tax Cuts for American Workers
The Failing New York Times wrote another phony story. It was political pundit Doug Schoen, not a Ukrainian businessman, who asked me to do a short speech by phone (Skype), hosted by Doug, in Ukraine. I was very positive about Ukraine-another negative to the Fake Russia C story!
So much Fake News about what is going on in the White House. Very calm and calculated with a big focus on open and fair trade with China, the coming North Korea meeting and, of course, the vicious gas attack in Syria. Feels great to have Bolton & Larry K on board. I (we) are
doing things that nobody thought possible, despite the never ending and corrupt Russia Investigation, which takes tremendous time and focus. No Collusion or Obstruction (other than I fight back), so now they do the Unthinkable, and RAID a lawyers office for information! BAD!
Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’ You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!
Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War. There is no reason for this. Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. Stop the arms race?

Baseball fights are one of the most ridiculous spectacles in sports
