Astros To Do List: August 13, 2018

An All Time Note of The Day
By Bill Veeck

Since we already are chest-deep into the “Baseball” season part of 2018, and just stepping out of an unforeseen underwater sinkhole that we have endured for four straight days, and as a gift to our beloved team, here’s our Houston Astros List of Things To Do This Monday, August 13, 2018:

(1) Put on your short memory caps.

(2) Enjoy a relaxing off-day ~ alone, with family, or friends.

(3) Watch out for soap in the shower and banana peels on the sidewalk.

(4) If a certain body move hurts from normal motion, you either don’t make that move again ~ or else ~ you go get it checked out. You owe it to yourself and the team not to let a small thing grow into a big thing that also carries you to the DL.

(5) Speaking of the DL, pray that Jose Altuve will be back in the lineup soon.

(6) Read a book ~ especially if you can find one about Ted Williams, Ty Cobb, or Rogers Hornsby on why scored runs are important to winning baseball, why winning baseball usually comes to those clubs that get the most hits, and why the most hits usually come to the club whose hitters never get too far away from the bottom line axiom that separates the hitters from the dreamers among batters:

“See the Ball ~ Hit the Ball.”

(7) Have a nice day! 🙂

  1. Tom Hunter Says:

    Dear Mr. Springer et al.,

    Please stop diving into bases head first with your hand stretched out, with the possibility of jamming or breaking a thumb or finger or getting your hand spiked–all for ONE extra base!

    If “oven mitts” are now permitted, what is the limit on length? Can the base runner wear one of those huge orange “We’re #1” spirit mitts that measure about 2 feet long?

  2. Anthony Cavender Says:

    This losing spell shows how valuable Altuve is, even at half speed.
