Re: MLB - 2018

Tommy John surgery is becoming as common as the tonsillectomy.

I used to think this bit was just funny. Now..?

Re: The Belmont Undercard

I like Madison's Luna in the Woody Stevens; Will appreciate not running in swamp this time. Bolt in the Met; Will appreciate not running in a swamp this time.

Re: Early Belmont race prediction.

I like Tenfold for the win. Noble Indy and Justify hanging in there but getting nosed out for 2nd by Hofburg. Maybe about 3 lengths between 1st to 4th. Final time in 2:29.16. Probably sprinkling slightly as the winner comes back to the grandstand.

No Ands, buts, or... ifs about it.

Re: MLB - 2018

Dodgers are going to have to start utilizing some of those talented young arms they never want to trade away. 21 year Caleb Ferguson who has been un-hittable in Oklahoma at least will start against the Pirates tonight. Walker Buehler, 23, already solidly in the rotation. Agree! Serious question.......

Re: Justify

Interesting to hear former jockey now XBTV commentator Rich Migliore comment on one of their segments that he thought that Hofburg was the horse to beat, and that Justify might have trouble with the mile and a half and the deep sandy track at Belmont. Said he would be watching closely to see how he...

Re: Belmont Stakes News & Notes - 2018

Hofburg at 9-2 doesn't interest me at all. He's extremely likely to hit the board though. Tenfold could improve again and I like how he came out of the Preakness. I am leaning his way. And Bravaso will run well. I kind of like Noble Indy to bet across the board. Some kind of 4 horse tri box could p...

Re: Belmont Stakes News & Notes - 2018

The 1 post allows them to race ride and try to lock Justify up inside and behind. Like they did with Chrome in 2014. I'm sure Baffert would have preferred an outside draw. I really don't see anyone near him that has the early speed to pull that off. Although I wouldn't have thought Commissioner woul...

Re: 2018 Preakness Stakes

By any measurable standard Justify regressed his last 2. But there is a possibility that Justify actually does not like muddy tracks and that is what we are seeing. He might be so superior that he won on them anyway and if he does get a fast dry surface to run on at Belmont he will run off and hide....

Re: 2018 Preakness Stakes

If people want to see bald eagles I recommend the San Juan Islands in Washington state. Also anywhere around Port Townsend and Port Angeles. You won't go an hour without seeing one. Sometimes up close. They aren't shy. I played Tenfold across the board in the Preakness and was disappointed he didn't...

Re: 2018 Preakness Stakes

I'm genuinely curious about how Magnum Moon is doing and if there's a chance he would line up. Early speed and bred to go the distance. If he learns how to run straight. It sounds like a Todd thing to do. I guess we'll see... Feel free to laugh at me, but I feel this way about Solomini. You post to...
