Baseball can be a weird game.

--The Dodgers just outscored the Giants in their first 4 games of the season 14-2.
And yet both teams won 2 games.

--The Giants are the 4th team ever to score just two runs in first four games.

--Sunday's game also marked just the 4th time during the expansion era that all the games of a four-game series have been shutouts.

And opening day at Yankee Stadium was postponed a day by snow!

After a great start, the Nats have bogged down. Hoping for the best soon!

And speaking of the All-Star game, my team hasn't hosted the
All-Star game for 36 years, the longest time of any franchise.

And since then these teams have done it twice:

San Diego Padres
Los Angeles Angels
Houston Astros
San Francisco Giants
Minnesota Twins
Cincinnati Reds
Pittsburgh Pirates
Chicago White Sox

And this team will have done it THREE times:
Cleveland Indians

The last time each franchise has hosted an All-Star Game
from the least recent to most recent

Here's the top three (or bottom seems more appropriate)

Los Angeles Dodgers, 1980
Oakland Athletics, 1987
Chicago Cubs, 1990

And it won't be in L.A. the next three years:
2017: Miami Marlins
2018: Washington Nationals
2019: Cleveland Indians

So...    :'(
WHY IS THAT?


So this is my most recent post (above) complaining that the Los Angeles Dodgers haven't hosted the
All-Star Game since 1980, more time than any other team. While 8 teams have held it twice during that
time and one will have held it three times!

This year your team is hosting it, Fritz!

TODAY'S HEADLINE:

Los Angeles Dodgers Awarded 2020 MLB All-Star Game: Dodgers to host for first time since 1980

40 years! That is a  l o n g  time.

(But not as long as the 30 years since a WS win.)   :(

Yep, they've been making a big deal over it since last season.

After the KC Royals lost the World Series to the San Francisco Giants in 2014, they came back to
win the World Series the next year in 2015. So, I wondered how they started the season in 2015
to compare to my Dodgers. KC's record the first two weeks of that season was 9-3. Dodgers? 4-8.

Geaux Nats!
