DDB6AE64-092B-4107-904D-158D3F15B8F3Dave Martinez is still the manager of the Nationals. That is odd. The Mets winning streak might not be the best thing to happen to the team. The Twins are powering their way to the top of the AL Central.

Also I answered Twitter questions.

Baseball For Lunch -Locked On MLB – May 23, 2019

C77EA6B4-C0DC-4237-AC0A-8CD0B4B855C6

There is a nearly full slate of games starting before noon, Pacific Daylight Time. Nothing is better than being a baseball fan on the west coast. I am going to be watching baseball for lunch!

The historically bad Marlins have almost caught the supposedly contending Nationals, and not because Miami has thoughts of winning the East.

The Yankees do not have a single player healthy on their squad and still can not lose. And Mike Minor somehow is a Cy Young Contender.
