    24 Jul 2014 | 9:15 pm
    Matt Garza was fuming after his previous start, the shortest of his career when he recorded just one out and allowed five runs. Garza allowed two hits in eight innings, and Ryan Braun hit one of three homers for the Milwaukee Brewers in a 9-1 victory over the New York Mets on Thursday night. ''His last start probably upset him enough that he had a lot to prove tonight, and he threw the ball well,'' Mets manager Terry Collins said. Jonathan Lucroy and Khris Davis also connected for the Brewers, who took a 6-0 lead after three innings against Dillon Gee (4-3) to win their fourth consecutive…

    If there were any lingering effects from Matt Garza's last start, he wasn't showing it Thursday night at Miller Park. The right-hander gave up five runs and lasted just one-third of an inning his last time out but was on top of his game against the New York Mets, striking out four and issuing only one walk while giving up just one run as the Milwaukee Brewers rolled to a 9-1 victory. The lead came courtesy of the Brewers' suddenly resurgent offense. Milwaukee scored four or fewer runs 13 times and hit seven home runs while losing 13 of 16, but on their current four-game winning streak, the…

    From today's Tribune-Review:The Obama administration might be painting a rosy picture of the federal deficit — the lowest thus far under Barack Obama's tenure — but the Congressional Budget Office is ringing the alarm bells. It reminds that the federal debt that today is 74 percent of the economy will explode to 106 percent by 2039. Spending and deficits must be curbed, the CBO warns. But, of course, that's anathema to “progressives,” who can't seem to wrap their brains around the Law of Diminishing Returns. [Bolding in original.]But take a look at the report.  On page 5 (page…
  • Climate Denier Governor To Meet With Climate Scientists (An Update)

    19 Jul 2014 | 5:57 am
    Hey, remember this?My blog post started with this article in the Tampa Bay Times.  A group of actual scientists offered to meet with Florida Governor (and climate science denier) Rick Scott to explain the science to him.I was wondering if we couldn't get a few climate scientists from Pennsylvania to meet with our own climate denying Governor.Anyway, there's an update.  From the Miami Herald:Democratic candidate for governor Charlie Crist fueled the climate wars Friday and called Florida State University oceanography professor Jeff Chanton offering to meet with the scientists who…

    Sometimes Alexis asks the hard questions. "Momma, who did I smile at first? And when?" Schedules and logistics being what they were at the time, it was probably me. Probably. I'm not actually sure. It might be written in the original blog, the one that is no longer online but exists in hard copy, but I'd have to dig to get my hands on it. So, I'm not sure. "Can I see a picture of me smiling when I was a baby?" Well, yeah. I'm sure such a thing exists. The digging for that was a little easier, so I hunted for the treasure and delivered. Alexis was ecstatic at first, but then disappointed. She…

    My first mistake was signing Alexis up for something that requires driving halfway across town at 8:00 in the morning. I know that's not that early, but I have a Mila now. Mila doesn't do 8:00 in the morning. I feel for Little Miss Mornings Are Stupid, so I let her sleep until we're walking out the door. A quick diaper change and she's in her car seat, pajamas and all. It's up to her whether she wants to fall back asleep or not, and that's where my second mistake comes in. I just met the kid seven weeks ago, but I already know she unleashes a special brand of horror every day shortly after…

    If there is one thing that must be done when the Big Kid is busy at a friend's house, it's shop. Listen, I love shopping with the kid. She is a fantastic little person to spend time with always, but definitely when it comes to walking through the mall. It warms my bargain hunter heart to watch her learn how to navigate the racks to find the best deals. In fact, she recently reached the stage where she has learned to check the price before deciding if she likes something. "This dress is cute, but it's not $50 cute," she'll say before moving to another rack. Still. I get really tired of saying…

    Part of Mission Keep Alexis from Realizing this is the Most Boring Summer Ever has been setting her up for fun with friends. It's hard to be bored when surrounded by your besties. That has led to multiple sleepovers. Multiple in one weekend, even. Anybody want to tell her how crazy fortunate she is? She doesn't believe me. Instead, I hear "Can I sleep over again?" It's as if the kid prefers to sleep anywhere but at home. If she must sleep at home, she wants company. (Least shocking fact ever? Least shocking fact ever.) I remember being the same way. The difference is that I never wanted to…

    For the most part, everybody in our house eats what I make for dinner and is happy about it. There are occasionally complaints, and sometimes people have to work around an ingredient they find less than wondrous (For example, mushrooms. OMG do mushrooms bring out the drama around here.), but they get what they get and they don't throw a fit. It's a good thing. I tried being a short order cook in high school. I was really bad at it. As a sort of "thank you" for generally being awesome about trying things and eating most anything, I like to make random "assemble it yourself" meals. Each person…

    Steelers to revive 1934 'bumblebee' jerseys again Pittsburgh Post-Gazette http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/s...s/201407230162 :eek: The "bumblebees" are back: The Steelers announced today that the team will wear their 1934 throwback uniforms when they play the Indianapolis Colts at Heinz Field on Oct. 26. This will mark the third straight season the team will wear them. The Steelers first wore the bold black-and-gold striped jerseys in 2012 to mark the team’s 80th season, first against the Washington Redskins and then against the Baltimore Ravens. In 2013, they wore them against the…

    Training camp report: Steelers begin anew today By Ed Bouchette / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/s...s/201407250121 :steelerfan: Steelers players no longer lug fans, televisions or refrigerators into their dorms at Saint Vincent College, where they report today to start training camp. Those annual photo-ops disappeared long ago. For years, a rental company has supplied most of the creature comforts for their three-week home away from home, save a favorite pillow or Xbox. Also not yet appearing this summer -- besides even more venerable veterans who have disappeared…

    Timmons feels pressure to transform Steelers back into contender By Ralph N. Paulk http://triblive.com/sports/steelers/...#axzz37ySfhyX5 :steelershelmet: Lawrence Timmons concedes he feels the weight of lofty expectations as the Steelers prepare to open training camp Friday at St. Vincent in Latrobe. Timmons, arguably the Steelers' most effective defensive player the past four seasons, was thrust into a leadership role last year. This time, he's being counted upon to steer a wayward defense back in the right direction. “I do feel like I have to do a lot for this team,” Timmons said.
