No Triple Crown this year. Cali Chrome loses by about 3-4 lengths.

Got my couple minutes of horseracing for the year out of the way there.

Cubs keep their little winning streak alive, though.

Made almost $700 on a place bet on Commissioner. ****ing love that horse, put new carpet on my floor! Seattle Slew is by far an all time great and so unappreciated as a racer and a stud. Always has been my favorite horse all time. Commissioner is Slew's grandson.

Congrats, but Seattle Slew is not under-appreciated. Everyone loves Slew.

Secretariat and Affirmed are better horses I guess, but they couldn't pass on that big heart like Slew has. Absolutely amazing, would love to own a horse in his lineage someday and race him out here at least. He's probably produced the most successful cheap horses from Grade 1 and on down to the local track horses.

You've just got to feel so happy for owners like Slew's and Crome's. Took a huge gamble, didn't have much money, but it paid off really big. It was too bad the one owner got so emotional today. He has a tremendous horse and the triple crown is hard.

Astros signed Aiken already. That's just such a well run organization now.

Aiken
Cosart
Foltyniewciz
Appel
McCullers

All TOR or #3 starter material.

I'd be more hyped about their lineup if I were a Stros fan.

Villar - SS/3B
Correa - 3B/SS
Springer - RF
Castro - C
Singelton - 1B
Santana - LF
Altuve - 2B
DeShields - CF
Whoever the hell they want - DH

There's so much power in that lineup...

Honestly surprised to say it, but I'm liking the Cubs' throwbacks today. Not enough to buy, though.

And it's nice to see the Marlins wear something that's not an eyesore like usual.

The Yankees are punishing David Phelps for his little gaffe involving Derek Jeter, earlier this month.

Hypothetical situation: despite Phelps' situation in The Bronx, would you trade for him?

I watched the entire Game 2; even before that, I just found out Adam "Pacman" Jones is rooting for the Heat.

White Sox signed Spencer Adams at slot value.

Tremendous deal. Should help shore up the Rodon/de Oca signings.

That's a big deal. The Sox need Rodon to get anything done later in the draft, but he's going to go at least 300k over slot.
