    1. I'm more impressed by Charlie Hodnett* pitching 153 innings with 15 complete games at the age of 99, but Dobnak has been pretty darn spectacular.

      *So then I clicked on the link to Charlie Hodnett, and I guess he was only 23 at the time. Also, born in Dubuque, Iowa and only played for two years? So then to the Wiki-

      Hodnett retired from baseball after that season, due to pain resulting from an ulcerated foot.[1] He died six years later.


      Well... damn.

      1. Here's what jumped out at me about Hodnett: 18 appearance, 18 starts, 15 complete games, 1.88 ERA... one shutout.

        But then you look and see 66 runs, 32 earned runs. Different. Era.

    1. The Blazers/Nets game last night was pretty incredible down the stretch. The Nets had a good look at the buzzer that would have won that game, sent Portland home, and kept Phoenix alive. It didn't go in. It's just too bad that the play-in game isn't PHX v. POR. That would have been epic.

  2. Girl my daughter skates with (Miss SBG has not been to the rink since March) is running a fever and has body aches, but is not getting a COVID test because, according to her mother, "She's not experiencing any symptoms." ::facepalm::

    1. meanwhile I'm waiting out 3-5 business days because close contact.....

      The testing was really, super unpleasant, but more information isn't bad.

      1. Good luck, hope it turns out ok.

        Because I had symptoms, the doctor still recommended I be isolated for at least 7 days, in spite of my negative test. So, I’ve been living completely separate from the rest of the family since last Friday, staying in just the guest room, which has an attached bathroom. It’s a lonely existence, but it beats passing things along to the rest of the family, had the test been a false negative.

        My quarantine time is almost up, so I’m looking forward to leaving my Corona jail tomorrow morning.

  3. Back on 4/20-4/23 I had diarrhea, fever/chills, crazy dreams. After a virtual office visit with Dr. Fear, without any respiratory symptoms he didn't think I should be tested. Never lost sense of taste/smell. Not sure what it was.

      1. Yeah, NBBW thot it was probably food poisoning also. My hands were shaking so much it was hard to log into the computer.

  4. Card shop owner pointed out that Gerrit Cole has started five games this season; Cardinals have played only five games this season.

    I'm wondering -- lots of 7 inning doubleheaders in the Cardinals' future; how's their bullpen? If it's lacking, it might (tangentially) benefit them a bit in those situations.

    1. It is crazy that one team is going to have so many 7-inning games, it unbalances the schedule. To your point, whether the bullpen is good or bad they are going to be playing a very different game than everyone else.
