Go Fling … and …

“America’s game: has the snap, go fling, of the American atmosphere — belongs as much to our institutions, fits into them as significantly, as our constitutions, laws, [and] is just as important in the sum total of our historic life.” ~ Walt Whitman on baseball, 1889

October. Baseball. Go fling.

Every day is a good day for baseball, right? But, there’s something special about baseball in October. Go fling … and …

  1. When I was a young boy, Ernie Banks told us that “It’s a beautiful day for a ballgame.” I believed him. I still do.

    Go O’s. I’d like a color-coordinated World Series match of orange and black uniforms.

    • Me, too! I watched all six hours of that Giants-Nats game last night … incredible! I was so happy for the Giants and for Brandon Belt. And, we always knew Joe Panik was something special … from his days in AA in Richmond.

      Ernie Banks followed up that quote with … “Let’s play two!” I bet he enjoyed the 18-inning game last night, too! :)

  2. The Royals are hot at the right time. Their outfielders have really stepped up, so the Os will need to hit some three-run homers far over their heads. KC took four of seven in the regular season; I see the Os winning in six, wrapping it up just before The Baseball Bloggess’s birthday.

    • It should be a fun series … and both Baltimore AND KC fans deserve a fun series! Yep, I was at one of those Orioles’ losses to KC back in April … it wasn’t pretty. The Royals took the season series from the O’s 4-3 — but they last faced each other in mid-May, when they were, arguably, both pretty different teams. The Tigers took the season series from the O’s 5-1, by the way. So, I’ll take my chances! :)
