My heart aches after the insanity over the weekend in Pittsburgh.
No more curse. The trade of Babe Ruth doomed the Boston Red Sox for 86 years. Almost 90 years is a long time without winning a World Series. Now they’ve captured 4 in the last 13 years after finishing off the Dodgers last night. Steve Pearce, a real baseball Dirt Bag (a good thing by the way) is the MVP. Now my thoughts turn to my beloved Braves who haven’t won a title since 1995.
