I’m a fan of the San Francisco Giants, the number one keeper of Barry Bonds, and an antidote to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserve to take the World Series from him for his cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy football, flag, basketball and any other sport that involves a ball or ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gambler and a voracious reader.
