 This years fiekd looks wide open

Harper  could help what has been a bit of down ” going to Market year” for him . Freedie Freeman has quietly been one MLBs best over his still yuong career tonight could be his in the Spotlight

Max  Muncy and Jesus allugar were both released by other clubs olny to find themselves two of the games  clunch power threats

Alex Bregman  is a quietly clunch power source fo the word champs. I’m not about peredict a winner but i wil  say that theewo Cubs will ethier be shutout or win the the darn thing .

rhys hoskins  may get the best distance of the night

it was a great week

had fun with my niece and nephew being with them is fun because i’m kid at heart and the anaul outing with my best friend was  its mix of middle aged kid sillyness, awesome  baseball and life advice . I love Andy because he helps not to over think the life chaleges i bring to him he give me an honest opinion which usaully prety sound and he also not afraid to go with me dep in the dork forest when i say whatever pops in my head  which is often crazy as heck.

Let’s Give Patrick Freel a Father’s day gift

Ryan Freel   was one of my  favorite Reds. He played hard with no reguard for his own body. Sadly,  the many times he went head first into walls ,bases, and dugouts caused brain  injuries which lead to him taking his own life. This yahoo article explains Patrick simple but challenagning mission to give his 3 grandaugthers something to remember ther dad by. I hope to help by get the word out and taking time to search through my own loose cards to see how many of Ryan’s cards  I can find to send to  Patrick
