It’s Belmont Stakes day here in NYC. What I’ve learned the past five weeks on the Triple Crown trail is that horse racing is the only sport in which the athletes do not taunt, use foul language or have any sort of criminal record. Refreshing. Last chance at a four-legged winner. Stitches is turning Japanese and going with Epicharis, born and raised in the land of the rising sun.
Shortly after Epicharis gets home, the opening pitch will be thrown in Cleveland. Control freak Josh Tomlin has walked no more than two batters per game over his past 42 outings. The White Sox will have come out swinging, but we’re betting they get outslugged by the Tribe. 20 units on the Indians.
“He’s a leaker.” Our account was leaking money all week, but the Rockies stitched it up for us. Played long ball at Wrigley, hitting a pair of two-run homers, and defeated the Cubs 5-3. Road dog win restored our gains to 2,376 secretariats.
