The Marlins are indeed a fascinating mess. And the problem may start from the top.

Part of me thinks MLB should step in.

But like a slow motion car wreck, part of me does not want them to change a thing because I am fascinated by it.

The Most Recent Cycle Hit For Each Team (Updated for Matt Kemp, August 14, 2015 )

DAVID ZALUBOWSKI/AP

DAVID ZALUBOWSKI/AP

THE FIRST PADRE CYCLE!!!

 

No Padre has ever thrown a no hitter. No Padres team has ever won the World Series. No Padre had ever hit for the cycle… until now.

Matt Kemp hit a fly ball that ricocheted off the right center field wall in Coors Field. By the time he stood at third base, the cycle was achieved.

This has been a rough year for the Padres and for Kemp, but this hit must have felt sweet.

Here is the list, updated for today’s action!

A Masterpiece for Iwakuma!

This has been a let down of a season for the Seattle Mariners, but what a highlight for Iwakuma. The 5th no hitter in Seattle Mariners history and the first since the perfect game by Felix Hernandez in 2012.

It was also his first career complete game. It is a good thing they didn’t bring in Fernando Rodney for the 9th.

Freakish Delays For Travel Over FRI/SAT Almost Cause Game Misses: 217 MLB Games Trip Still Intact For 2015

a 30 hour travel sector tested my limit and sanity once again. Overall it was not a very good week of execution on either my part, or parties that were helping me on the voyages.  I am hoping that having my car with me for the majority will help clean that up in the next 10 days in the Midwest, Toronto and Baltimore, before I hit the West Coast for an 11 day road swing.   At least I made it to Yankee Stadium early enough to receive this killer cowboy hat.  Unfortunately I will be selling this on EBAY to help pay for some of the fiasco that was this week.

I started out Friday morning (Aug.07, 2015) with much swagger.  I began the day with an exciting interview opportunity in which I nailed for a potential paying gig surrounding MLB.

Since I couldn’t take my car to a Park and Ride in Sicklerville, N.J. (since I would be gone for 40 hours on Friday and Saturday), I walked 2 miles to my public bus – in order to make the connecting transport to Philadelphia Amtrak 30th Station. I did not want to risk a tow charge for using the Park N ride service for too long.

I ate a heavy helping of Ramen noodles before leaving.  Hey, you gotta save dough where you can.  My friend Gary Herman gave me a free coupon for a Chic – fil-a sandwich earlier this week – which I capitalized on since it was 800 feet from my public bus Friday..

NJ Transit took me to the Lindenwold PATCO Speedline.  I have taken this method all week.  It costs just $3 for a one way maneuver into downtown Philly.

If I am headed to New York – they have a Megabus pickup location at Philly independence Hall.  It only takes 25 minutes.

Today was not one of those days.  Trips to Washington are picked up from Amtrak 30th Station only. It is still a $3 move for me because it falls within the free interloop zone for light rail trips out of Jefferson Station.  (Right across from the Greyhound Station on Filbert Street).

So back to the pending weirdness.  I arrived ready to make this journey from the Speedline, when all of the transit rail systems were down to the oil leak a few miles up the train tracks. Read the rest of this entry
