Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Astros Off To A Good Start, But Still Lots Of Baseball Left

It's early, sure. But Houston Astros fans such as I have got to love the results right now.

The Astros just got started on 2021 with a sweep of the Oakland Athletics at the Coliseum in Cali. They are 4-0 and have become the fourth team in MLB history to score at least eight runs in each of their first four games. Nevertheless, off to a great start as they go to Anaheim for two against the Los Angeles Angels, and then return home to H-Town on Thursday against the A's.

What's helped even more is constant heckling of fans when the 'Stros are on the road because those hypocrites can't get their minds off of the sign-stealing steal in which this franchise had gotten called out on. From what I've read on the Astros' website (and other sources), the hecklings and spewings from opponent fans are only fueling the team's fire. That's actually now a good thing. I say hypocrites because, let's face it, there's more cheating that privately goes on in baseball than some people think. Although the Astros did not cheat in 2020 (and they needed that season just for the sake of therapy when COVID took the fans away from the ballparks), don't tell me that there isn't still somebody on other clubs sneaking in something to get away with. It's been happening for years. If it's not happening, then you know it's going to happen elsewhere in baseball. Plus, there will be another scandal at some point, and it won't necessarily involve cheating. But enough about the Astros' and Boston Red Sox' (and, I still maintain, the Yankees' but they didn't get caught) scandals. Let's get on with the game of baseball. Opposing fans just need to shut up.

And tonight, the 'Stros have business to take care of in Anaheim with the Halos and Joe Maddon. It'll be interesting to see what results he'll bring as L.A.'s manager. My stars, if he can do it with the Chicago Flubs, then can you just.....

Alright, let's just get on with the Astros and see if they can extend their division lead tonight. Lots of baseball left. Don't go away.
