Game 4 World Series Open Thread: Floridians versus Pennsylvanians, 5:35 pm PT
by Bob Timmermann
Game 4 beckons with presumably better weather. I'll be watching this game at my brother's place, so I will just be with people in spirit.
Andy Sonnanstine will pitch for Tampa Bay and Joe Blanton for Philadelphia. While neither pitcher is his team's ace, both have pitched pretty well in the postseason. Sonnanstine has won both his starts and has given up five earned runs in 13 innings. Blanton has a win and a no-decision and has given up four earned runs in 11 innings.
(Insert Joe Posnanski-esque asterisk) Not having anything to do with the World Series, I went to the Breeders' Cup races at Santa Anita on Saturday. One of the sponsors of the races is the Bessemer Trust.
When I checked their website, one of the parts it read:
Ironically, the more wealth one accumulates, the more complicated life can become. Thoughtful planning can help ensure your wealth is a source of satisfaction and opportunity — for you and your family.
I regret being a member of the middle class. I have just enough complications in life to make life difficult. If only I could be in abject poverty. That sounds sweet!
